The 1990 Jeep Wrangler: you either love
it or hate it. It should not be
mistaken as civil or even practical.
Everything about this vehicle is very
stark and raw, from the trademark
styling, to the spartan interior,
flimsy tedious-to-install soft top, and
stiff suspension setup. This vehicle
is built for aggressive off-road
performance, not for handling and
everyday tooling around. What makes it
appealling is its honest, hard-working
image, its macho mystique and heritage,
and yes, it will go anywhere...within
reason. I recommend this vehicle to
people looking for a fun 2nd car to
tackle the trails or just to putz
around with the top off on a sunny
Ruff & ready looks, open-air motoring
capability, this vehicle can go just
about anywhere with its outstanding 4-
wheel-drive ability (that's why the
Jeep is the benchmark for 4x4's).
Jeep has refined and modernized its
Wrangler since 1990 and now it rides
more like a car and has several more
convenience features. Jeep is trying to
appeal to a broader crowd including
young females with its colors and
graphics, and is succeeding.
