    Jeep Wrangers Are Fun — So fun to drive. Take the roof off, the doors off, and take it into the woods. Rip around in snow storms when nobody is around. The wrangler is strong, and easy to work on. The mileage is so-so. Its not the smoothest or most quiet ride for road trips, but again, its so fun to drive.

    Pros: ride over anything

    Cons: a little noisy, if thats a bad thing

    My Prefer 4x4 — the feeling when you press on the gas, humm. It's really fun to drive it. Sad, beacause i can not have it any more, the gas price going up... thi is why I'm going to participate at Gazelles Rallye at sahara, Morrocos, nest year. You know, here in Qu├ębec summer is short, when you feel a warm day, you take-off the top of your jeep and you go around being happy. That's it. You go off-road any time, easy to get out in winter when snow storm in going-on. The bad thing about the jeep, maintenance, uff, your money goes out from your wallet, very fast .

    Pros: Off-road trips

    Cons: prices of maintenance

    Awsome Fun Car — A Wonderful car, is loads of fun, incredible power due to the 4.0 L Engine plus ECU. It's got 31" mudtires on it and it is just soo much fun going offroading with that beast. Only problem is the fuel economy, it is useless for long trips becasue you will run out of money befor you get there! otherwise brilient car!

    Pros: there is nothing you cant go over or thou

    Cons: Fuel economy,

    Rough, Tough, And Fun To Drive. — This baby is quite a machine... Fun to drive, fun to modify, and just an all-around cool car. Plus there is a distinct differentce between driving a car/truck and driving a JEEP!

    Pros: Fun, drives nice, easy to repair (when it needs it), and it stands out.

    Cons: It would be nice if it weren't geared so low, but that's the only big con that i have found.

    Jeep Wrangler — Runs great. Love the soft top. Standard tranny, yuck! Very pretty green. Reliable, and fun to drive. Not a good grocery getter.

    Pros: Green, Soft top

    Cons: standard, no storage capacity

    Great Car For People Without Children — I purchased this car right out of college. I loved being able to take off the top and also be in an SUV. I had a lot of fun driving my Jeep.

    Pros: Great handling, beautiful car

    Cons: Jumpy ride, not a lot of extras

    Great Car Bad On Gas — After ten years any other car would have broken down after all that this Jeep has been through. Although I have to drive it less often and use my gas getter it is still a fun car in both the winter and the summer

    Pros: build quality, looks,

    Cons: breaks, mpg, not having lockers

    Good Vehicle —

    There's a few kinks in my 1998 Sahara Edition Wrangler, but it's an awesome ride. The exhaust manifolds on these jeeps should be tossed first thing. The first time you go wheeling, the manifold with crack due to being hot and suddenly exposed to cold. They now make a flew tube manifold that will take that kind of temp change without trouble. The top is easy to remove or put on, it's not too heavy, but could use an quicker easier way to take on or off than using bolts that need tightened of loosened. I have a hardtop so I have very minimal leak problems, BUT, the gaskets that they use on the hard tops are very prone to becoming stiff (especially if exposed to hot weather often). I've had to take the rear window gasket out and lay it out in the sun covered in vasaline to get the elasticity back several times, to prevent more leaks, which then cause mildew and mold on your seats. Drain holes. I do go out in the mud, puddles, ect, and I've had to drill 2 new drain holes in the back seat floor boards and hammer the floors down to slope towards the holes in the front floorboards. OTHERWISE I get a bunch of standing water in my floorboards once I'm done washing my jeep out. It was a PAIN to find (I had to make them) plugs for the holes I drilled in the back floorboards. The bumpers definetally do what they are intended to do, but if you take your beast wheeling with stock bumpers.. I dare you to hit a tree. Those suckers bend like twigs. The only other negative thing I have to say is that Jeep REALLY should've matched the rear dana 44 and put one in the front as well. Instead it has a dana 30. If you get caught in some clay and put it in 4x4. It's likely you won't have the front end pulling you anymore. That dana 30 will blow pretty easy. Other than that, I LOVE my jeep, they are put together pretty damn well, and are one of the most fun vehicles you could possibly own.
