It's slow, loud, heavy, gets horrible gas mileage and lousy on long trips. But I love this truck! After 3 CJS and 1 YJ this is my 5th Jeep. It looks great, will climb anything, pull anything, is great fun with the top and doors off and is apparently indestructible after hitting a concrete wall at 40+mph with only minimal damage then driving away!
Classic Jeep and 2-door convertible styling, real truck frame and axles, solid reliability, Jeep mystique. Little exterior plastic, and beefy strong parts make this a REAL truck instead of a wussy soccer mom suv or car based cuv.
Needs a V-8 for more power and the right nasty snarl from the exhaust. A turbo diesel would be great as well. Bring back the Scrambler! Keep it all Jeep and make sure not to ever dilute it into one of these feminized modern cars.
