    My Yj. — Rugged, tough, plenty of torque, and a real blast to drive. The hardtop is nice and works well. Heat is a little weak and wish there was a fan setting for upper body and feet. Put it in 4WD and it more than lives up to its name.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's a Jeep.

    Cons: The heat.

    Do Anything, Go Everywhere! — "There's Only One Jeep", this slogan really describes this car, This Jeep Wrangler has an enormous power, with 190HP on wheels, an also a high torsion as well. This car is fun to drive, but a lil bit difficult for those who are beginners to Jeep.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Powerful engine, solidly build and all terrain vehicle.

    Cons: Low mileage of gasoline (indeed it's 4.0L high output), and it is a lil bit difficult for beginners driver.

    Wait For Winter — Let me put it to you this way: Although the acceleration was horrifying, this Jeep was built for something serious. Dirt, snow, lakes, whatever you want to put it though, it can handle. Not bad looking at all. Soft tops are kind of annoying because they rip, but who needs a top? GREAT to drive - especially in the snow. But if you drive a small car, this is something you have to get used to....

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Built like a friggin car should be. 4WD is awesome.

    Cons: The soft tops and lack of acceleration kills the joy

    Jeep Just-emptied-every-pocket — 214,000 original miles, 5 spd, 33" bf goodrich all terrain tires, 2" budget suspension lift, 1" body lift, custom stinger front bumper i made, hella 500w driving lights, thrush welded muffler, throttle body spacer, long tube cold air intake (more low end torque), accel 42,000 volt ignition coil, rear locker, i removed the exhaust manifold and welded up the cracks that are common on wranglers, it is very fun to drive, most people can't, its fast for a jeep, and it can go pretty much anywhere

    It's Fuin To Have, But I Wouldnt Suggest As A Daily Driver. — There aren't many options, but perfect for climbing and being a summer toy. I would also get the 6 cyl., the 4 cyl is the slowest thing I have ever driven. Huge torque and climbing power though.Wouldn't suggest a daily driver.

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

    Pros: Summer Vehicle

    Cons: Gas mileage

    I Love It, My Daily Driver And My Off-road Rig; It Does It All — Really fun rig. Very high quality for a newer vehical, not too much plastic. The in-line 6 4.0L has a lot of get up and go and does great off road. Really fun to drive; does have some tracking issues over 60.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive, Great off road, easy to park

    Cons: Gas milage is not impressive, handling over 60 is moderate at best
