2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I only have bought this Jeep about a month ago but, I have owned a few Jeeps in my life. I love the improved ride, power, quietness and performance of this Wrangler Jeep. Quite an improvement over ones just a few years back imo. Parts are easy to get and the package works well for me as a towable vehicle behind my motorhome as well. If your going to buy this one at least get the limitted slip rear diff from the factory with the DANA 44 rear end. I plan on putting a cable locker up front and I'll be set for all but the worst stuff. I have already added $1500 in parts for off roading; bumpers, winch, and tow bar, and rock sliders were a must for my use. Loving it!
Removable hard top and doors. Size for tight trails. Power, clearance from the factory, ruggedness, and usefulness.
2 inch lift from factory and 33" tires plus a factory winch and towable set up for us motorhome guys. Other than that ... maybe bump the HP to 250HP or so. However, do it with improved mpg.
