Looking for a dependable, strong, go-
anywhere fun Jeep? This is it. I opted
for the 4 cylinder because it has
plenty of power with better fuel
Wranglers are for adventurous people
who want to have fun - not for people
who want a comfortable cadillac. Since
the Jeep is not the most comfortable -
but does what it is supposed to
Fun factor & offroad capabilities. Also
great on ice and snow driving.
The only thing I can think of is for
reclinable seats - the driver and
passanger seats are fixed back, non-
reclinable. Not a big deal though.
My jeep was the best suv i think i will
ever own. I used it for off-roading and
i drove it throw a mud up to the middle
of the windshield and it powered right
throw. It was crazy off-raod. I had Mud
Kings 235/75/15 that is only 2 sizes
bigger then stock. There was no lift in
it. I had to replace the tranny once
but i was rough on the jeep when i was
off-road. Other then that it just
needed basic maintance.
I am sad to say that i totaled my jeep.
The 4 by 4 system was the best it would
go throw any thing i put it throw butit
would not pull any one out.
Jeep should have stayed with the square
This is a tough workhorse. After 12
years and 140,000 miles still runs
great. Starts every morning. But it is
what it is... Don't buy this vehical
thinking you are getting anything else
but a Jeep. It is not a car! If buying
make sure you get the 4.0 IL6- It makes
all the difference in the world. I have
had two batteries and the water pump
replaced in 12 years. I cant say enough
good things about Jeep.
Very inexpensive common parts. If you
are in need of auto parts.
Lift kits are 500 - 700 $$ very
Easy to add after market parts to.
Not for everyone. Look for one
w/hardtop. New hardtops are ungodly
expensive in retail aftermarket
($1600-$2K+). Get it with the jeep -
figure out how to take it off later.
Conversation at highway speed w/o hard
top, forget it. A/C, forget it. Don't
get too excited about a stereo system. A
Jeep is a big vibrating square metal box
& you fight road noise too. Recommend a
bra/guard up front, or the Jeep grill
gets all chipped up. Not for extensive
traveling, OK for day trips. Can
really have fun & trick it for
4-wheeling. Lots of fun stuff to buy.
Watch the tranny with the 6-cyl., esp
the 3-spd auto. But you still got to
* 4.0L inline 6 (new in 1991 model year)
is extremely nice. Do not settle for
the 4 unless you like driving in the
* the old-school sport bars (1991 last
year before the rear shoulder belts -
the newer wrangler sport bars just don't
look as cool).
