There is seriously nothing like a
jeep. I bought mine new in 1998 (Green
Sahara Hard Top), and have put 75,000
miles on it. Other than basic service
and minor warranty work, I have had no
real problems. If your considering
buying a Wrangler, make sure you
comfortable with the expected wind
noise, bumpiness, fuel mileage etc.
Wranglers are just plain fun. You get
looks all time, jeep drivers usually
wave at each other, and this thing
turns on a dime.
The ability to have hard top
or "convertible." It's also one of
those cars that you feel good walking
up to. Ability to off-road is an
Leather wrapped wheel didn't hold up
past 3 years, had to add a wheel grip
on it. Might develop rubber guards to
protect paint near hinges when
removing and putting doors back on.
