Pros

Lots of room for gear and stuff, handles great in snow and offroad, fun to drive with top removed

Cons

somewhat boaty drive, major process to take entire top off and put back on - not something you want to do regularly

Crazy Fun Offroad But Still Good For Everyday Car — Take the jeep's top off, throw your bike on the rack (or even in the back), plug in your iPod and hit the outdoors. Even the basic model can handle black diamond offroad trails and the kind of dumping snow that shuts down towns (so you can still get to the mountain). Keep chains in the back, but you may never need them. It turns out this is the perfect car if you're renovating your house too - as it's got plenty of room for all the furniture, plywood, equipment and whatever else you may come back from the store with. It works fine as a daily commuter car too, although it's a bit of a boaty drive. It handles on a regular road with a bit of a late reaction, so it's not easy to quickly make that crazy-last-minute turn or swerve to avoid ignorant drivers. But the fun you can have with this truck - the places you can go with it and the jams it can get you out of make it all worth it.

Pros

good car, fun to drive

Cons

trembles at high speed

Wrangler — it's okay for everday use. car drinks lot of gas. not as much as hummer. engine sound is good. starting speed is awesome. best at the beach. feel free to drive around in sand. don't be afraid to go on off roads.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Excellent on and offroader.

Cons

Fibre Glass roof attracts alot of heat during the summer.

2 Door Jeep Wrangler Sahara — Acceleration- Enough to put you back into your seat. Braking- Very sharp, ABS works smoothly. Handling- Good on account of its massive tyres and short wheel base. Build Quality- Solid as a rock. Offroad Capability- Handles big dunes with ease and climbs over rocks without loosing any pace. Fun Factor- 5/5

Pros

EVERYTHING!

Cons

Not a one.

65

My Jeep, The Green Monster — 6 speed, fully loaded with power windows, satellite radio, a 50 watt amplified sub woofer, obscenely oversized tires and much much more. Acceleration? Put it this way, either from a dead stop or going 80 it screams! Gas mileage isn't that bad either, 18 MPG which is the same as my last jeep.

Pros

Turns more heads than a sports car. Trust me.

Cons

Underpowered on road, but geared correctly offroad.

Drive Offroad With Room For The Family And Gear. Resale Value Is Amazing. — Its actually my wife's jeep. I sold my truck before we came overseas. Plan to get a v8 sports sedan when we get back to the states. Probably a Dodge Charger. Jeep does great off-road, mediocre on road. Needs more power! As much room as a standard SUV but its a Jeep! Built more for functionality, rather than Appearance. Word of advice to guys, Jeep wranglers are more of chick magnets than A sports car like a mustang. Test drive one and see how many heads you can turn.

Pros

Suspension, torque.

Cons

Acceleration.

135

Solid Vehicle — It is one best off-roading vehicle which does not require any modifications for it. Acceleration is not up to our expectation but can climb up any dam hills. Suspension is smooth on road and in sandy places. Hard top is better for places UAE as it would prevent some heat from coming in. It is a solid build vehicle.

Gorgeous Gunship — it needs running boards because it's lifted so high but that is about it! It runs smooth, tons of room, great rugged look, so fun to drive, feels invincible! Noise is fine, heat and air are great, very in charge vehicle

Pros

From BMW to Jeep and dont regret it, love this car.

Cons

Fuel consumption

45

Fun — Lots of torque, regular accel., added Bilstein Shocks which improved dramatically handling, great fun and great to drive.Jeep parts are expensive, cheaper and higher quality parts from aftermarket are recommended. Great for long trips, removable roof, great for the beach and friends. Ultra resistant, you can wash the interiors with a karcher.

My Impression Is Great For Camping, Off Roading And Just Enjoying In General. — Awesome Look to it. I have 4x4 in mine, dont know y the others dont. Great gas milage, and the hard top is WAY easier to take off than my old vinal top. I sit up higher than my wrangler sport, and I love that. Oh and TONS of arm, and leg room, built-in GPS and mp3 player hard drive are sweeet.

It Was A Good Reliable Jeep But A Bit Week In The Power Department — I enjoyed owning the jeep and the modifications I did to it. It handled really well and was roomy for a jeep. Bad on gas though and not enough power I thought. All in all a good jeep as they all are!
