6 Years with a 1998 Wrangler Sport

1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

I took delivery of my special order Wrangler Sport in January 1998. The combination of a 6 cyl., auto., and 3.73 rear axle gets you 15-16 mpg. Adding the K&N induction system has improved gas mileage to 18 mpg. The factory sound system is limited. Adding the Jeep subwoofer system has helped. Interior and highway ride quality is good. However, off-road is where this vehicle rules! I recommend the factory limited-slip rear axle for off-road driving, and the full steel doors to lower int. noise levels. For a second vehicle that will see limited use, it dosen't get any better - a convertible with great off-road capabilities from the factory.

Best Features

Awesome off-road capabilities. Availabilty of aftermarket parts. Summer fun with top down.

Worst Features

Poor gas mileage with certain engine / transmission / rear axle set-ups. Somewhat tiring to drive on longer trips due to wind noise with soft top Factory sound system is lacking. Driver's side left arm space is limited (need some type of arm rest).
