    Not An Everyday Driver — Good for the occasional trip and errands, Excellent offroad capabilities. Not good for every day commute to work. Not the easiest vehicle to get in and out of and the little bit of cargo space is difficult to access. Had to remove the back seat just so I could have a little bit of space.

    Pros: Very maneuverable, easy to park and can go anywhere.

    Cons: Rough on the highway, feel every little bump you hit.

    Off Road Runner! — Love that it is a sturdy, fun, simple vehicle that anyone can drive even if they have never driven a standard. It is such an easy going ride and is very dependable in any situation. Oh and it has both a hard & soft top!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Runs well, very capible, fun to drive, easy to manuver.

    Cons: Clear coat popping on hood & fender flares.

    Fun — I like the look of a Jeep, the build quality is superb it is easy to work on and you can find parts for jeeps in quite a few different autoparts or junk yards. The Performance is great, the handling on the road is good.

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

    Pros: If you like to play in the mud or go trail riding this is the perfect vehicle, or even take the top off and cruise the beach on a nice sunny day.

    Cons: With the lift it gets less fuel mileage.

    I Love It And Would Recommend It To Anyone. — There's no stopping this vehicle. It pulls a lot more weight than one would think. I've taken it a lot of places you typically shouldn't take an off-road vehicle. Thin sand, mud, water, rough cow pastures, through think brush. IT'S SO MUCH FUN!

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

    Pros: Everyone loves a Jeep.  And it'll go anywhere.

    Cons: Repairs are costly.

    Love It! — This is a great, dependable vehicle with so much to offer. It has a lot of power so it comes in handy when you are in a tight spot. The 4-wheel drive is great in the ice and snow and lets you get out and enjoy the scenery when everyone else is stuck at home.

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

    Pros: Love being able to take the top and doors off and just go for a drive.

    Cons: Really just gas mileage

    If You Don't Have One, You Don't Understand. — A Jeep Wrangler isn't meant to keep up with the Hummers etc. They are a rough tough vehicle that is fun to drive and cheap to own. They have timeless styling that Jeep owners demand. The highway performance is lacking but this isn't a vehicle meant for the freeway, it's meant for off road. My Jeep is just awesome and out of all my vehicles, this is the one that I'll own to the end...in fact, they may just bury me in it!

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

    Pros: I love the ride and the way this Jeep drives.  Get it off road and you truly see what a Jeep is all about.

    Cons: I hate nothing about this vehicle.

    Off-road King — Rugged off-road vehicle with great capabilities. Can be testy in extreme situations, but can pass through just about anything. Bottoms out fairly easy, but can pull itself out of almost anything. Can go off-roading all day on one tank of gas!

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

    Pros: Gas mileage and durability

    Cons: Low top speed
