1990 Jeep Wrangler S 2dr SUV 4WD
Owned since new, primary vehicle for first year, then wised up and used as second or third ever since, where it excels as convertible, off-roader, tow vehicle, winter driver, grocery getter; fun, practical, economical to operate and easy to maintain. 17- 20mpg with 5sp/2.5L, stock. Just don't ask it to carry more than two adults, spend hours on the highway or keep you cool in the heat (though its warm enough in the winter). Took it to Turkey & Germany, was right vehicle for first country, wrong for second. Next time will buy hardtop w/AC and get the softtop later.
Removable top and doors; all weather interior; go anywhere feeling; now classic styling
Nitpicks: needs ABS, locking diff, 20gal tank std (all solved with the Rubicon). Any issues with power solved with 4.0L out in '91. Rock crawling, stick with 2.5L
