    Jeep, Yep Its A Jeep. — Performance - The 4.0L in-line six is a very torque oriented system. Braking is about average for this size and weight vehicle. I don't understand all the top heavy warnings on these vehicles. I mean I would go through a track course full throttle but i do believe the rollover possibility has been a bit over played. Build Quality- I've been having issues with the weather stripping around the windshield. Plus the passenger side exterior door handle has been coming out of the door itself. I'm a little disappointed at this point. Appearance- How can you not like a Jeep Wrangler? lol My only complaint is the factor wheels. They are just plain and ugly. There is no way around it. They will be changed eventually. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is around 18mpg in this area. Which isn't the worst nor is it the best. I'll admit for a 4 wheel drive vehicle tipping the scales above four thousand pounds. I can't complain too much. Just don't get on the interstate with it. Its geared low enough to where a trip on the interstate will break the bank by fuel consumption. Fun Factor - During the summer and warm months the top comes down easily with some practice. With the top down, this is one of the most fun vehicles I have ever driven. Now if you like to play in the snow, you'll be disappointed. The traction with decent grip tires will leave u going where its supposed too and not sideways like you wanted. lol Thats one of those grown up perks, but for the kid inside of us all its kind of a let down.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Convertible Top, Drivability, Reliable

    Cons: Build Quality, Insterstate incompatability

    Unlimited Fun In A Jeep. — I love the fact that I can go anywhere I want in this vehicle. It is lacking power but with the locker I installed ans the lift and tires pull me through the hardest trails. Jeepin' is fun for the whole family and I love the top and doors off and the rush I get on the trails. The fuel milage is not well at all, and the maintenece is high especially if you trail ride. the interior is basic from the factory and the best thing thst I have done to the interior is to take out the carpet and Herculine the floors for easy clean up. The unlimited is a longer wheelbased TJ, referred as the LJ the wheelbase is 103 inches and it has a lot more cargo room and towing capcity than a TJ. It comes from the factory with a heavy duty Dana 44 rear with a Trac-Loc, and a Dana 30 in the front. It has the I-6 engine, NP231 transfer case and 42rle auto trans. the Unlimited only is available with the auto trans. This is a very rare Jeep it was only made for 3 years, so aftermarket parts are not as common as the TJ. Overall this is the best Jeep ever made, the new JK model is much wider and is capable but good luck squeezing in tight spots. See you all on the trails!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The "Hey watch this" Yee haw factor.

    Cons: Fuel milage.

    I Love It So Much — Decent acceleration. Great on turns. It has a decent sound system, although i wish the deck worked better. The top is easy to take off and put back on and in the summer it is one of the best cars to drive around in. Can be hard to keep clean, and it tends to get beat up after intense offroading. Know your limits when offroading.

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

    Pros: I go offroading all the time

    Cons: It might be in the shop a lot if its used

    The Best Motoring Experience Out There... — It's a jeep, man! 4WD in the winter or in the fun stuff, take the top off, take the doors off, hell, even fold the weildshield flat! Awesome resale value, fun to drive and nothing beats cruising in a jeep on a sunny summer day...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Um... it's a jeep.

    Cons: Well, putting the top up and down sucks.. but worth it!

    Amazing Base For A 4x4 Project — The 2006 jeep wrangler rubicon was amazing even stock but i put a 7.5 inch lift 37 inch tires 4-11 gears about 300hp it was the obvious choice for a extreme 4x4 and it delivered i put it through anything you could think of and it kept going the only flaw it ever had was the exterior door handles were cheaply done other than that for a extreme toy its the perfect starting point

    Pros: everything its a jeep

    Cons: door handles and sun visors

    2006 Jeep Wrangler Sport Golden Eagle Edtion Review

    Golden Experience — The jeep wrangler golden eagle edition that i own is nothing like the one in the picture, to be honest its a lot nicer. First off, the wheels in the picture are not the standard wheels, the standard wheels on this jeep are gold, or tanish, they sound kinda stupid but they match the car very nicely.Also the front bumper is missing the fog lights, and the bumper tips are not the standardly equipped ones, also they mostly come with black side steps. this atuomobile is a blast to drive no matter the weather, the standard six speed manual is a blast for just driving on and off the road. the standardly bigger tires are nice to have out of the gate. the front and door windows would be nice if there were tinted at least a little bit but you can do that on your own. unfourtanly i didnt get both the hard top and soft top it is suppose to come with. the upgraded sound systems is very nice compared to the regular one.

    Pros: Its a jeep wrangler? what is theren not to like about it?

    Cons: Cleaning it out after it rains when the top was down.

    Jeep. 'nuff Said. — The petals are real light...It's five gear with a granny. Honestly, the part about his car that's toughest for me is taking the key out (it has some wierd lock thing and you need to push in some button to remove key...I NEVER remember the button).

    Pros: light petals

    Cons: windy...it's really windy.(hard top would fix, but that's not *cool*.
