Purchased vehicle in '98, used, from private seller who didn't even know it had 4 wheel drive. Used for everything from daily work commute to locating trail heads of mountain bike trails. Capability is superb and so compromises ride quality. Mechanically very sound, only replacing AC electronic switch ($20). Not looking forward to being able to purchase another when the time comes.
4x4, classic look, dependability, value!
Back seat small, though bigger than Wrangler, if I had to think of something
