2004 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
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!
convertible top, loads of Jeep aftermarket accessories
For 2004, the overall ride quality (including wind noise), longer-lasting material stock for the soft top.
