2003 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I never thought I'd own a Wrangler. I was actually looking for a Cherokee when I stumbled across this perfect 2003 X model. I've never had a vehicle more fun than this. I drive with a smile everyday. It actually rides quite well, the seats are fantastic, and the CD player with the factory subwoofer sounds great. I added stainless bumpers front and rear, a Magnaflow exhaust, and the K&N intake kit. It sounds excellent, and has better pick up. Driving it last summer, on a clear warm night, with the top off, I looked up to see the stars going by, and all seemed right in the world, if only for a few minutes. This vehicle is amazing... especially off road.
4.0 Inline 6, excellent seats, 4WD utility, tough as nails, smooth auto trans.
Better mileage would be nice, but you can't have it all. Wish it came in Olive Drab with stars on doors.
