2003 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


The SE model with 2.4L I-4 engine is underpowered and uses a lot of gas for an I-4. The engine seems rev happy for an offroad engine. Gearing is awesome in the 5 speed transmission, although 3rd gear could stand to be a bit lower and closer to 2nd's ratio. Highway sppeds in excess of 65mph are hard to reach even on a flat surface during a calm dry day. Design, both interior and exterior, is classic bare basics Jeep. Overall a great car if you are into Jeeps.

Best Features

4.10:1 gearing, highly customizable, unbeatable offroad prowess, excellent city handling, solid as a rock, very utilitarian, awesome articulation, able to fit a 31" tire in stock form.

Worst Features

Needs more low and mid range power. Standard Hard Top. Shorter front bucket seats. Gorund clearance is less than 2002 and earlier, ditch the Rubicon skid plates.
