Beast Mode — This was built to survive the harsh washington state weather swings. I have successfully rescued people stuck in snow up to 6in fresh powder. It is everything you need to spice up your life with friends and family. I love this ride.

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

Pros: Zombie outbreak recovery vehicle

Cons: 21mpg highway

It Was A Good Reliable Jeep But A Bit Week In The Power Department — I enjoyed owning the jeep and the modifications I did to it. It handled really well and was roomy for a jeep. Bad on gas though and not enough power I thought. All in all a good jeep as they all are!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good handling, sharp looking, great in snow, lots of fun!

Cons: Terrible on gas, not much power

Our Awesome Jeep! — Love the color, detonator yellow. Love the handling and the awesome feeling when we are in the wind! After we get some different tires and wheels on her, she will be perfect. Awesome vehicle! Have owned many jeeps, but this one is the best!

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

Pros: Have just had her a few months and love everything about her!

Cons: No negatives!

Jeep Wrangler The American Icon! — I love my Jeep wrangler. Upgrades are a must, 2.5 lift at least 35" tires, Skid plates front and rear bumpers. This vehicle will blow your mind off road. one of the most addicting vehicles I have ever had. I have had this for nearly 2 years now and it has taken me places I could never go with a simple car

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

Pros: Upgrade possibilities, off road performance and durability

Cons: limited storage, gas milage

Fun To Drive — Wrangler is a great vehicle. The only downside is room for cargo. Seats up to 4 adults. No problems with maintence. Handles great. Manual transmission is easy to shift and the hill assist is great. The tires are new in June with about 2000 miles on them. No major scratches or exterior defects.

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

Pros: Soft top easy to get on and off. 20+mpg.

Cons: On a windy day it can be noisy.

The Most Fun Vehicle I Have Ever Owned. Buying Another! — Overall a great, fun Jeep. Got more looks in my Jeep than I did when I drove a 911! Love being ale to drive over anything, park in really tight spaces and be high up off the ground. Really nice interior styling. Navigation system is terrific.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great.  Love taking the roof and doors off.

Cons: Putting the roof back on in a hurry

I Love My 2008 Jeep Wrangler X Despite Its Quirks (or Maybe Because Of Them) — I love to ride in nice weather with the top down but getting the top down is a real struggle. Getting it back up is an even bigger struggle! Mileage leaves much to be desired. When I bring it to the dealer for its lube job and oil change, they always try to hard sell me on several hundred dollars and 2 hours worth of extra service (maybe because I'm a woman of a certain age). I especially like the optional 4-wheel drive because I only use it when I need it, like in ice and snow. Also, Jeeps are supposed to be rugged but I've already gone through at least 4 front bumpers because they crumple if you bump into something at 2 miles an hour. If you want a cushy ride, the Jeep Wrangler is not for you. It rides like a tank but then it's in the nature of the beast.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks cool, fun to drive, optional 4-wheel drive when I need it, love to ride with top down

Cons: Mileage, top is a challenge to put down and an even bigger challenge to put back up, plastic bumpers crumple at the slightest touch
