We bought this Jeep for the wife and kid, used it for a year and then #2 showed up, so we went to a minivan. That's when I took over. This truck has been used for beach driving, mountain 4-wheeling, daily commuter and at one point I used it for carpentry work and it was loaded down with a compressor, saws, nail guns, etc. I've carried 6x6s from Home Depot in it, 10 sheets of plywood on the roof; this truck just won't stop. Gas mileage is now getting to me, but I just can't let go of it, it's like family. Change the oil, keep it clean and it will run forever.
VERSATILITY... nice enough to take the wife out for a night on the town, yet tough enough for a fishing trip on the beach or a load of wood.
As we all know, spare tire should be hidden but they fixed this. Better gas mileage would be nice; who am I kidding, the truck is incredible.
