    Beast On Wheels — This Jeep is quick off the line and puts some big V-8's to shame. Its a 4.0L straight six, so its built to last and can handle being pushed to the limit. Its not the sexiest truck but its versatile, easy to work on, and there are alot of upgrades. Gas mileage sucks around town, Ok on the highway though. And the 4x4 is BEAST!!!!

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

    Pros: Nearly indestructable

    Cons: Fuel

    Wish I Still Had It! — Miss this thing! She blew up around 108K due to a thrown rod and oil spilled all over the place after having some previous work done. This jeep had power, but in deep, deep snow, I worried (more than 12 inches). Love to have it again!

    Fun Toy — The jeep is not the best as fare as looks goes, but looks I can care less about I use it for what its suppose to be used for, not no road queen. For being a 96 it has 160xxx miles and still has a ton of power, out off al my friends jeep hi out puts and other obd 2 jeeps mine for some reason has more power, when you want to punch it on the highway is pulls on every jeep I have encounter'd. Never been stuck in mud, snow, or rock. Jeep is a gas pig 20 bucks will get me know were. Not the best at handling, death wobble like no other, and breaking is scary because of the abs, caught my breaks on fire once so unpluged the abs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a bad ass wheeler

    Cons: handling, breaks, gas

    It's Okay. — The power steering goes out sometimes might be a bad pump, I'm not sure. I really wish it had a hitch so I could toe things . The gas mileage is sucks considering I get 15 miles to the gallon! But over all, it's okay.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's got a lot of tourque.

    Cons: I HATE the color.

    This Car Will Last Forever And Take A Beating. Amazing First Car. — This car is amazing. The only thing, not quite fast enough. get a newer one, but not after 2001. Its style is classic and its built like a rock. Unfortunately its about as fast as one, but it gets the job done.

    Pros: Amazing.

    Cons: Top speed.

    Worth More Than Every Penny — my jeep is a little touchy to both the throttle and brakes, but at 130k milse and running great its a true testiment to the Jeep name. in addition, the both the radio and heater are very reliable and the 4 wheel drive never fail and does a good job.

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: not a flashy set of wheels
