    Exellent 4x4 — The Jeep is an excellent on or off road car. Basically a convertible that can take you back and forth to work or off road to the perfect camping or beach trip. The soft top is easily taken down for relaxing full sun, wind in your face rides. It goes back up quickly if stormy weather approaches.

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

    Pros: Great color. Tires and wheels complement the sporty look.  Removable Hard and Soft top. Cargo Rack, Quick cover and soft top boot.

    Cons: Rougher ride and tire noise but whose complaining

    Red Rocky Mtn Fun — One of the best vehicles to own in the summer. Its a truck and a convertable all in one! Dont drive a bright red jeep and not expect to get noticed. You cant be shy when you drive this vehicle.

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

    Pros: Love the vehicle for a fun summer ride!

    Cons: Not the best vehicle to drive if you want your hair straight.

    This Is A Car That You As An Individual Needs To Personally Drive And Look At. — This Jeep is so much fun to drive. Its small fits in any parking space. I strongly urge anyone looking at buying a Wrangler to get the 6 spd Manuel you will need every bit of that extra gear. I couldn't imagine a 5 spd. I'd have no gas mpg. If its a windy day I get tossed around a bunch. I'm not to thrilled about the top its a pain to take on and off, I recommend watching youtube for putting on and removing the top. The fun things about my Jeep are that I can fit 4 people in it, in 4wd its a champ I love it. To cruise around town on a nice day its a blast. It has the 4.0L so it gets about 14mpg city and 18mpg hwy. Not sure if I'd ever get another one but, I'm definitely glad I can say I've had one because its a fun toy. Awful ride awful mpg but, this is not a normal vehicle.

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

    Pros: Its a fun toy thats about it

    Cons: I would think twice before letting a young teen drive this car its not the most stable vehicle.

    We Miss Our Rubi — Performance - Acceleration is excellent, just don't stomp on the gas pedel && think she'll suddenly pull 0km - 60km in seconds.. Braking is 'slow' && handling is okay just as long as you don't turn too quickly or sharply.. Buil Quality - AMAZING! Tough as nails this machine is. Appearence - We loved the appearence of this 2005 year of the Rubicon.. && we are dissappointed with the "new" look of the 2010's.. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage surely blows.. && maintenance, should you ever need it, is exteremly expensive.. To own one you need to have a lot of extra $$ sitting around!! Fun Factor - ALL TIME HIGH! This vehicle overall is fun to drive && we love, love, loved how we could take it anywhere!!

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

    Pros: Off Roading Capabilities are AMAZING && ENDLESS

    Cons: If you have or are planning on having a family.. No passenger room!

Only have 45,000 miles on her, too, but no more warrenty....

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

    Pros: GORGEOUS "PARROT" GREEN

    Bottom Line = 65 Years Of Tradition And Adventure. — Damn good Jeep! The only thing I would have done differently if I was building it was to tuck that sovel up into the frame more. That's the one drawback in stock configuration.So, a nice little body lift and tummy tuck can fix that problem. Go anywhere - do anything. Jeep rocks. Eco Note: 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water. Jeep covers the rest!

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

    Pros: It's a Jeep it will get you anywhere. Most fun next to sex.

    Cons: Avoid this vehicle if you are wimpy or want comfort.

    Bad Ass Vehicle — My Jeep is the best suv i have ever driven. Its got enough pep for my taste but its got alot of torque and no traction control so it slides in the rain. All Wrangler TJs from 03 to 06 eventually got what is known as the Death Wobble. A cheap fix and i was back on the road. The Gas mileage Kinda sucks but i didnt buy a jeep for the mileage. Definaly better than my other cars overall.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good for off road in sand and rocks.

    Cons: Iffy in the mud. DEATH WOBBLE
