1971 Jeep CJ5 Review
Jeep Thing — Tons of power and torque. Its not built to go fast. It tops out at about 60 mph. It should be trailered to the hills then driven. Its very light weight and very over powered. Its hard to keep it straight on wet roads.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: I love that this Jeep is bad ass.
Cons: I wish it was more streetable so i could drive over little cars.
