Great Year for a Wrangler!
By Krakenbound on


2003 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


If you are looking for a used Wrangler to use as both a daily driver and a weekend trail runner, the 2003 year is a very good choice. This year saw the intro of the new 4 speed automatic transmission, making freeway driving easier. It had already seen a engine upgrade in 2001, and also now has the option for rear disk brakes (faster stopping, better feel and much easier to repair). Aside from the later Unlimited body extension option and the Rubicon off road package that became available in 2004 (and together in 2005), there is no better Wrangler to consider than a 2003 (Unless you want a fat/wide 2007+, which can't get though some desert canyons I wheel in!)

Best Features

190hp 6 Cyl Engine, 42RLE Auto Transmission, refined aftermarket options.

Worst Features

Should come with a full, frame mounted roll bar instead of the sport rail-into-window frame design, which will not withstand a roll.
