Wanted a Jeep forever, got it for a second vehicle & mid-life crisis car. Put a new engine in it right after purchase so as not to worry about previous care (had 67000 miles on it, we've added close to that), this baby has been good to us! Nothing like taking that top off in the spring and waving to other Jeeps. Have an 8" lift on it, very bouncy and loud (soft top, hard doors & windows) but heater cooks us in winter. Not very powerful (tough to get over 65 MPH on freeway) but not built for freeway driving anyway! I almost bought another for every day but they're a bit small inside so one will have to do. I will always own at least one Jeep from now on!
Driving with the top off or all windows off on a beautiful day, able to wash inside & out in the driveway, great in snow, even better in mud & on hills. Just plain fun to drive!
Side mirror connections rust easily. Can't move the driver's seat to get to the back seat. 4-cylinder doesn't have the best power, but that's not what it's built for! No hookups for car seat for grandson to ride with us.
