    Best Fun To Drive Vehicle, Especially In Summer — I Love Jeeps Once you go Wrangler You never go back, It's not fast But it has the power to go through anything...with the right modifications. Nothing beats driving topless on a hot summer day with your best pals in a Jeep

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

    Pros: Fun no matter where you are

    Cons: bad gas milage

    Loved It — Great for summer with the top off and good for winter for those snowy streets. Great off road vehicle with one of the best rated approach and departure angles.I had lots of fun with mine and would get another one in the future.

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

    Pros: fun fun fun

    Cons: 2.5L Engine (but very reliable. Never let me down)

    My Thoughts — I love my Jeep. There is nothing special about it. It was puchased for the purpose of offroading. I am currently in the process of converting it from a 4 to 6. Do not recommond this it is alot of work.

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

    Pros: 4X4

    Cons: It's a Jeep (Just Empty Every Pocket)

    Awesome — I love everyting about it. The ride,power,apperance. Everything. there isnt really one thing i hate about it. i love the ability to go with no top or doors. everything is owner friendly. And when you own a jeep no one else understands your love affair with it beside other jeep owners.

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

    Pros: Its Awesome. Look.power.abilities

    My First Jeep — Performance - 2.5L, slow, recently started misfiring, no ABS, feels like it always gonna roll when cornered sharply Build Quality - originally a salvage title, rebuilt front clip in my garage, even after a roll over, it still runs and drives near flawless, squeaks in places, little rust and a few dented panels Appearance -exterior: beauty of a Jeep, looks good with off road tires, nice red paint, cage has a little lean to the left, dented panels interior: plastic everywhere, gray and black, vinyl seats, spartan interior Cost of Ownership - 18 mpg, maintenance has been cheap for things like plugs, wires, distributor cap Fun Factor - the most fun car to drive around, on road or off road, Jeepers share a common bond with each other, people always smile and sometimes ask about it all in all, its a pretty good truck. fun to drive topless in the summer and be able to go anywhere. A blast to drive in the snowy winters, its nice to be able to pull away from an intersection when everything else is stuck spinning

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

    Pros: light, decent fuel economy, 4wd, convertible, Jeep

    Cons: slow, loud, rough

    Not Trading My Car In, But In A Perfect World I'd Have A Zippy Commuter Car As Well. — Love my car... so much. But given a choice, I'd take the 6cyl over the 4 - barely noticeable difference in mpg, but significant difference in power. Overall, this car is a BLAST! Think of myself as a Jeep convert for life!

    Pros: Off roading capability, removable top, removable doors!

    Cons: MPG, noise, acceleration

    1997 Red Jeep Wrangler — Picked this jewel up in Ft.Lauderdale on e-bay for my son. Drove it home to B'ham with no doors or a top. What's great about it is everything can be replaced cheaply. I don't have a convertible, so on the weekends between March and October this is my favorite ride.

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

    Pros: duh

    Cons: noisy

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

    Pros: Its toughness

    Cons: Its getting old
