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


Review

Overall, my little beast is a dream come true! I love everything about it (except the gas mileage, but that comes with the territory)! I put a 3.5" Super Flex Rubicon Express Lift Kit suspension lift and a 1.25" body lift to fit the 305x70x16 (original rims) tires. She's a little monster now! I couldn't have asked for a more fun vehicle to own and drive. Just driving around and watching the heads turn make me love it just that much more!


Best Features

Flexible upgrading capabilities at a decent price, off-roading capabilities, convertability, cleanability, interior design, exterior desing that screams "take me off road and get me muddy!!"


Worst Features

Lower seat backs (I'm 5'3 and can't see over the seats when backing out).

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


Review

I love my Rubicon and there is no other stock SUV or 4x4 that can do what this Jeep can do on or off road. I have 31,500 miles on it and have not had any problems with it yet. I take it off road 2 or 3 times a month with member's of my Jeep group and more than a few of them have bought one because of how good it does on and off road.


Best Features

Everything except the stock tires.


Worst Features

Need to go with BF Goodrich KO/MT tire's. The stock tire's are junk on and off road.

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


Review

Bought this used Jeep with only 13,000 miles. The ride is very soft and seems to sway from side to side more than other cars. Avg 21 mpg on and off road combo. AC works very well and the heater is unreal. In 20 degree weather, the heater was blowing hot air in less than half mile! Have not tested the Jeep's ability to get agressive offroad, but on moderate trails, it has no problems. On the fly to 4wd is a piece of cake, but you need to be stopped or at 2 mph for 4wdLow. The turning radius is really small. Combo CD and radio with rear speakers is quite nice, but the volumn must really be increased at highway speeds. Hardly use 5th gear unless on level road at 65+


Best Features

Heater and the off road ability. Easy self maintenance. Super small turning radius.


Worst Features

A ilttle more interior room for storing stuff.

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


Review

I previously owned a KJ and put 266K miles on it. I purchased an LJ (Unlimited Wrangler) because I always wanted a Wrangler but it just wasn't practical until now. This Jeep is great off road and bearable on. I took this Jeep to Paragon off road park and could not believe what it could muster being stock with a longer wheelbase. This Jeep is perfect for business during the week and wheeling on the weekends!


Best Features

Sunrider top, more storage room, AT, cruise control, CD player with subwoofer.


Worst Features

Offset wheels for easy tire upgrade without purchasing new wheels.

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


Review

The Wrangler is a great vehicle that can go places one never thought a vehicle could go. Up hill, over rocks and through rivers. Very tough and dependable.


Best Features

4 wheel drive, towable with all 4 wheels down behind my motor home. Convertible top and hardtop.


Worst Features

A V8 would be nice but the standard 6 isn't bad.
