As long as you can accept what a Jeep WON'T do, you can truly enjoy what it WILL do. WON'T go over 70 mph WON'T save you money on gas WON'T impress your girlfriend's mother but it WILL go ANYWHERE at about 5 mph WILL save you money up front (it's cheap) WILL look good when dirty This is the coolest vehicle you can obtain for under $5000. Make sure that it's got a manual tranny, 33" tires or larger and a good top. 6-cyl is fast and has a more-reliable transmission but also gulps fuel - but if fuel economy was the point, you'd drive a prius. Get the soundbar, take off the doors and live a little.

I am aJeep fan but this is a vehicle
of all trades -- it is not a master of
anything on-road but it does it all and
it can truely take you anywhere you
want to be. For a daily driver I
truely recommend it

I bought my Jeep new in '92 and 12
years and 98k miles later, it's still
going strong. It's fun to drive on
dry roads, dirt, or 2 feet of snow.
Just don't expect any creature
comforts in these older Jeeps -
they're sparse inside. But even with
a ragtop, the heater works great.
1992 Wrangler YJ with a 4.0. AX5. Same thing for me. It's like a thump-thump-thump....like you're driving over a highway rumble strip. But only in 3rd gear. It starts exactly when I shift into 3rd. On...
The CRD seems to similar geometry to my 1997 Wrangler, and so far has performed well in mud and snow on the trails; I would say it is the equal of my old Wrangler, and superior to my 1992 Range Rove...
