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

Review

Downshift the 4 cylinder early for power, 3rd gear is good for 75 mph, don't be afraid to spin the engine up. It is a twin cam after all. Used thusly, the engine is plenty peppy. Expect 20 mpg town, 24 hwy. Five speed tranny is notchy and vague, a real antique. The later 6-speed is better. I've got aftermarket sliding glass side curtains on the stock low cut doors. Much quieter and more convenient than zipper plastic door windows. The low cut doors make for a good arm rest (since a Wrangler has none). Get a center console for the same reason. Seats could use more lumbar for 400 mile days.

Favorite Features

Short vehicle length makes for a great town vehicle. Thirty seconds to take door curtains off for instant outdoors! Soft top on for shade but with all windows removed is great for summer. Takes 5 minutes to reassemble all door, side, and rear windows.

Suggested Improvements

Can't think of any. It is what it is.
