I love my jeep. Its been a fun
dependable car that I've took off
roading many times and have never had a
problem with it. It only has 70,000
but everything works and it still runs
great after all the abuse I put it
through. There are only 3 think I
dislike and they are:
1. Soft tops are noisy on the Highway.
2. Gas Mileage stinks
3. 2.5L Has now power in 5th gear and
stinks on long drives. I find myself
downshifting alot on long highway trips.
Big Tires. Fun Offroad. Buy a 97 or up
because they changed the suspension in
97. They got rid of the leaf springs
and went to coil springs....much much
Get rid of the 2.5L and just put 4.0L
in them all. The 2.5L is underpowered
for a jeeep. The 2.5 is
dependable...just weak on the highway.
