"This is the best vehicle to ever own, if you can not afford one I suggest you save your money it will be worth it,but do not buy a new one. any wrangler that is a 2007 or newer is not that great they are made cheaper and the quality is poor. so look for a 2006 or older jeep, all the way back to 1941."

Pros: "reliable, fun to drive, ability to go anywhere"

Cons: "road noise, low top speed, and RUST/ROT!"

"I have always owned jeeps and love the life style that comes with owning one. The "jeep wave" adds to the perks of owning a jeep. Wranglers are not for everyone, it takes a certain type of person to drive one. Having the ability to go anywhere at anytime is a huge advantage. Versatile, fun to drive. The down side is you have to deal with road noise that sounds like a class 4 hurricane. Once you put large tires on it you loose the highway power and have to regear depending on tire size. Top speed you want to go is 70mph anything higher is pretty scary. Even with all of that i wouldnt trade my rubicon for anything else. The stright 6 is reliable, cheap parts, easy to work on. D44s with air lockers that come on the rubicon are amazing, the 4.11 ratio holds up to 35" tires no problem. If you want fun reliable transportation, that can take you anywhere, and you dont mind driving something with as much noise stock as a harley, then jeep wrangler is the way to go. I can see myself owning many more wranglers down the road."

"I own a yellow 2000 Jeep Wrangler and I absolutely love it. It is the most reliable vehicle I have owned and is so much fun to drive. When I first got it I was kind of scared to see what it could do, but after owning it for a while I am not scared to take on anything. The jeep can do anything! I have owned it for over a year now and I have already done countless modifications to it. The things you can do to a jeep are endless. Wheeling in a jeep is one of the best feelings ever... other than riding with the top and doors off. It is very rare to see my jeep clean because even minutes after I wash it down, there tends to always be chunks of mud flying all over it. After just one year of work on the jeep I have added a black Poison Spyder Hood Louver, Rough Country 50 and 12 inch light bars, 8,000 lb Warn Winch, 31" A/T Patagonias(soon to be 33" Pro Comps with 3.5" suspension lift kit from Metalcloak), Smittybilt Rampage Top, Smittybilt front bumper, Smittybilt hi-lift jack, black powder coated Metalcloak arched front fenders + Metalcloak rear fenders, bolt-on nerf bars, Truck-Lite LED headlights, Racing Bucket Seats, stainless steel exhaust/manifold, black grill inserts, Cobra 29 CB, and painted all the hinges black. The accessories and stuff are nice but the best part about owning a jeep is the family that you become a part of. It's just a natural connection that all jeepers have. The jeep wave is one a priority when owning a jeep, so if you are planning on getting a jeep know what you are getting into. Go to the jeep meets, join a jeep club, tell everyone about your jeep, know your jeep, get others to buy a jeep, treat it like a jeep not a sports car. It's a wayalife, enjoy."

"After being relocated with my job to the Great Canadian North in the midst of winter, my Jeep NEVER let me down.In the wickedest snowstorm, I was never intimidated because my Jeep handled the road masterfully, never got stuck and I always found parking; be it through a mini pile of snow or atop a plowed hill! Summers are a delight with the hard top removed and soft top down. This car is a four season, all around, fun time for young and old-er! Not to add, I love the spirit when every time you pass another Jeep on the road with that, "Give a wave and Get a wave" family bond! For the adventurous type, the Jeep Jamborees are by far, the most fun a bunch of Jeep lovers can have at one time! Talk about camaraderie!!! You're not just buying a car.....You're gaining a family and taking on a lifestyle!"

This is my baby!!!

"Bought her in Jan, 2012. She's a rag top with a straight 6, 5 on the floor. And my wife can't drive it! She doesn't know how to use a clutch!! I shattered my lower back on a job site in 2007,and went through a massive amount of "procedures" with 3 fusions. Told my Doc when all was said and done, I wanted to buy a Harley. He stood back and gave me a long, serious stare. Then shook his head and said "no'. So I got the next best thing, a Jeep Wrangler. He still says I'm nuts,...so be it. I've kept her mostly stock, and only replaced the top and cassette radio with a radio/cd player,( yeah, I kept the old one). Plus, since I don't drive everyday, and in 2012 she only had 57,000 miles, I've only taken her up to...I think I just hit 62,000? I love my Jeep. I will not get rid of her."
