6 Years with a 1998 Wrangler Sport

1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD
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
Awesome off-road capabilities.
Availabilty of aftermarket parts.
Summer fun with top down.
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).
