2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Jeep Wranglers fill a unique niche that seems to have no competition: a no-frills, no-nonsense practical, utilitarian workhorse that will easily take you to hell and back without complaint. Turn the key on that noisy, rumbly straight-6, and all becomes clear: this isn't your average foofy, grocery-getter SUV. This truck is strictly business. In the Unlimited, all the amenities are present: cruise, CD stereo, airbags, A/C. However, underneath all that fluff lies one of the toughest trucks ever produced. Jeep Wrangler's off road prowess is legendary, and now with the longer Unlimited wheelbase, ride quality and cargo space is very easy to live with.

Best Features

The new 6-sp. manual transmission is very forgiving and easy to operate; the hydraulic clutch is light and reliable. The 6-sp. premium stereo package is a must-have. Seating is extremely comfortable and headroom is massive. Best feature: rock-solid drivetrain reliability.

Worst Features

A padded armrest and seat height adjustment would be nice. Around-town steering/handling is improved by inflating the 30-in. tires to 34 psi. A spare tire lock and denim cover as well as both full/hard top s/b offered as standard equipment at this price level.
