2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have modded my Rubi, but even in stock form it had out perform a very modded "Sport." Go Rubi. it has better axles (Dana 44 front and rear) and a 4:1 T-case, and drives selectable diff locks. The best way to describe a Jeep is; When looking at what they are designed to do, nothing in the world can compare. When it comes to everything else, they leave a lot to be desired. They do not ride great and they are not roomy, but they are a convertible for the summer, 4wd for the winter and just a whole lot of fun to drive.


Best Features

4:1 t-case, lockers, beefy axles


Worst Features

factory lift & winch option (Mopar has it for the Dodge Power Wagon).

2004 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought used in 2008 with 66000 miles. Had my X for over 2 years now and never a problem. My wife says it rides rough but it's a Jeep. Can't think of anything more fun to drive than a Jeep Wrangler X with the top down, except in a rain storm (had that happen) and here in Texas it's often too hot to keep the top down. This is my first Jeep and it's a great vehicle! I'd recommend a Wrangler X to anyone who wants to have fun while driving, you won't be disappointed!


Best Features

Soft top. Easy to put down and up, do it all alone in less than 10 minutes. Fun to drive! Very reliable.


Worst Features

Fuel economy. Drivers seat should slide back further.

2004 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I just bought this January 2010 as my first Jeep (SE trim, 5-speed manual). Overall I dig it, but I you gotta be sort of a Jeep fan to in my opinion. The ride is harsh (more bumpy than the average car, and the wind noise can be unbearable if you're just getting out of a Cobalt or anything other quiet car ride). On the other hand, from what I've seen, they're pretty reliable (I know mine is), and off roading is great alongside the many many accessories from tops to lift kits, you name it, there's probably an accessory for the jeep and that's always great!


Best Features

convertible top, loads of Jeep aftermarket accessories


Worst Features

For 2004, the overall ride quality (including wind noise), longer-lasting material stock for the soft top.

2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Best 4 wheel I ever had for off road. Great grocery getter. As lite as it is you would expect better highway mpg's


Best Features

Will climb anything. Short wheel base, no bottoming.


Worst Features

I know it has a short wheel base, but they should try and get the driving on ice feel out of it.

2004 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Had this Wrangler Sahara for over 5 years. A very FUN car to drive, although not the comfortable one. Had hardtop and added U-haul hitch. Very classic looking. Small, but very easy to park and making turns. Very noisy with high speed, but that is expected with a Jeep. Never had any engine or mechanical related problem. I also love the tires with "Wrangler" brand (from Goodyear), as well as the high ride with this Jeep. Sahara line is well equipped. I only wish the sound insulation is little better. My hardtop is great, but removing it is difficult. People either love this or hate this car. There is no middle ground. (just as you never go to South Pole to see winter, not summer


Best Features

"Wrangler" brand tire, reliable build, tinted glass, classic appearance, able to remove anything, hardtop, doors, even windshield, many after-market products, cheap but still a headtuner


Worst Features

roof rack is almost impossible, better noise insulation, better fuel economy (although this car uses regular gas), make easy to remove hardtop, poor quality of windshield wiper (jumps and noisy)
