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.

Built Like A Tank. — I've owned four of these the last 15 years, an '89, two '97s, and now this - a '98 which I just took in as a debt settlement from an old friend. A crawler, capable off-roader as is. Built like a tank. Solid ageless design. A total utilitarian vehicle. Economical to maintain (for dot-it-yourself weekend mechanics). Fun to drive in the dirt - off the beaten path.

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

Pros: Go everywhere.

Cons: Rough ride, not intended for highway cruising obviously.

Perfect New Englad Vehicle — This car is great for cruising around town and the experience you get with the convertible top and doors off is one that I believe only a jeep wrangler will ever provide. I barely put any money into the jeep for the four years I owned it and now that it has almost 100k it only needs normal wear and tear items replaced. Jeeps are great vehicles and in my opinion have great build quality.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Holds its value very well, extremely reliable, awesome in the summer and will go anywhere in the snow

Cons: common jeep rust spots
