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.
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
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.
