Get ready to leave the road in the 2008 Jeep Wrangler X, the two-door base trim of the original SUV. Equipped with low-range gearing, front and rear stabilizer bars, skid plates, 10 inches of ground clearance, a rear locking differential, a solid live axle front and rear suspension, and a 2-speed transfer case, the part-time four-wheel drive 2008 Wrangler X can ford streams and climb steep rocky outcroppings with ease. Power comes from a 202-hp, 3.8-liter V6 and 6-speed manual transmission. A 4-speed automatic is optional. The X rides on 16-inch wheels with all-terrain tires and is equipped with 4-wheel ABS brakes, traction and stability control, rollover sensors, a tire monitor, and dual front-side airbags. Side curtain bags are not available.
Seating four, the 2008 Wrangler X holds 17 cubic feet of cargo, expandable to 56 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. A convertible soft-top is standard, but can be replaced with a three-piece hardtop or a Sunrider soft-top with a sunroof. The rear window is plastic, and the rear door opens sideways. Standard equipment includes a CD/MP3 player with MP3 input jack, tilt steering, two front power outlets, a tachometer, and intermittent wipers. The cargo area features tie-downs. The two doors can be removed if opening and closing them takes up too much of your time. Various option packages add air conditioning, power windows and locks, remote start, rear wipers, and 17-inch wheels. An electronically controlled front stabilizer bar is also available if you want more ground clearance. Mopar options dress up the Jeep in chrome or black exhaust tips and side steps.

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara gets a standard Sunrider convertible soft top, which features a sunroof when the top is closed. A regular soft top and three-piece hardtop are also available.
The two-door Sahara differs from the base X in that it rides on larger 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires. Part-time four-wheel drive comes with a locking rear differential, a front and rear stabilizer bar, 4-wheel ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, and traction and electronic stability control with rollover protection. Standard skid plates and 10 inches of ground clearance improve its off-roading performance, and an electronically disengageable stabilizer bar is available. Dual front and side impact airbags are standard, but no side curtain bags are offered. A tire monitor and foglights round out the safety features. A limited-slip rear differential is optional.
A 3.8-liter, 202-hp V6 and 6-speed manual transmission power the 2008 Wrangler Sahara, which can also be had with an optional 4-speed automatic. The Sahara comes with four cupholders, two front power outlets, intermittent wipers, air conditioning, and a CD/MP3 player, as does the base trim, but adds cruise control, a leather steering wheel, a temperature and compass display, and satellite radio. On the outside, it gets tubular side steps and body-colored fender flares (which are black on the X trim). Cargo capacity stretches from 17 to 56 cubic feet with the back seats down, and the Sahara can pull up to 2,000 pounds with the optional tow package. Other add-ons include a 6-CD changer and hard disk drive, power windows and locks, remote entry, a new navigation system, and a rear window wiper.

The most rugged of Jeep's 2008 Wrangler offerings, the Rubicon differs from the other trims by offering beefed up off-road performance. This two-door convertible utility vehicle is equipped with part-time four-wheel drive, a 4WD transfer case, high- and low-range gearing, standard skid plates, 10 inches of ground clearance, and a front stabilizer bar that can be disengaged electronically to add more clearance. The Rubicon also comes with locking front and rear differentials, and the rear is limited slip. It's powered by the same 202-hp, 3.8-liter V6 and 6-speed manual powertrain as the other trims, and also offers an optional 4-speed automatic. 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires replace the 18-inch wheels on the Sahara.
Safety features include 4-wheel ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, traction and stability control, rollover sensors, a tire monitor, foglights, and dual front-side airbags. This earns the 2008 Wrangler Rubicon five stars in front impact tests. A Sunrider soft top with sunroof is standard and can be replaced with an optional three-piece hard top that comes with a glass window and wiper. Both doors can be removed as well. Seating four in two rows, the Jeep holds up to 56 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats down. An optional tow package equips it to haul 2,000 pounds. Tie-downs are standard, and the rear door opens sideways.
In terms of features, the 2008 Wrangler Rubicon offers the same equipment as the regular Sahara. It includes air conditioning, front and rear cupholders, a CD/MP3 player with satellite radio, cruise control, temperature display and compass, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A 6-CD player with hard drive is available, as is a power package that offers power windows and locks, remote entry, and a security system. New options this year are remote start and a navigation system.
