Style: Lucky me - 2000 Wrangler in Desert Sand Pearl (like the one shown) is the best Jeep design ever. Liked by kids from 0 to 100 and up. Jeep did not cut any corners making body panels "more technological". Was it the last steel-grille, steel-bumper in production? Drive: I wish it had an all-time 4x4. Spins at rabbit starts on wet road in 4x2 at once. The rest is - King of the Hill!! Failure: Now, 'Chrysler' steps in to make the beauty of worst ingredients. A rusty piece of door chipped off on 11th month. Front rotors replaced at 9K miles. Rear differential broke at 14K. Front wheel joints worn at 20K. Both front stabilizer bar rods broke apart at 30K, no offroading. Water pump gone at 50K.
Style. Huge cargo capacity for the size - fold the top and carry a fridge. Sense of protection on the road - "don't mess with a Wrangler - it's a steel one". Weather rigors are all discounted.
More quality ingredients . The paint should not chip, and drivetrain metal fail. Chrysler, please don't save on the steel grade! Now, it's the year 2007, and the new style appears inferior to the 1997-2006 icon. The grille is suspiciously plastic. Will miss it if ever sell.
