I am 17 and before my jeep I had a 1990 Ford Ranger that CONSTANTLY needed fixing, but wen it finally blew up i was rewarded with a jeep. This thing is so reliable, durable, and fun. It has over 170,000 miles on it, and had 160,000+ when we bought it. The previous owner worked at a boyscout camp and used this Jeep to navigate the incredibly rough roads every day. However this ol' Jeep remains tough, and great for offroading. It ain't a power house with the 4 cyl. so not great for highway, and is really bumpy and noisy, but hey, its a Jeep. I only had to replace the starter because I took it mudding and got some water in the engine, haha
The durability of that little four cylinder. I got it stuck in a mud hole and after shutting off twice in water OVER the hood, a death sentence to any other vehicle, it restarted TWICE! Only the starter couldn't take it lol. plus the intense heater and fun rag top.
Umm, maybe a tad smoother suspension and sum more power for that lil 4 cyl.
