The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is good for
what you need it for; off road, driving
in snow, etc. It has the original Jeep
deign features of the open wheels,
circular headlights and basic interior.
The bucket seats do not have that much
support, and the rear seats are heard
to get into. The dashboard is made out
of a cheap looking plastic, but it is
more for keeping it clean easier. On
the road it is good for an off-road
vehicle, with a lot of road noise from
the large tires, and a little wind
noise from the box shape and
convertible top. Fuel economy is ok,
but could be improved. The 6 cylinder
gives more torque than power, you can
decently cruise at 30 mph in 5th gear
with no trouble.
Some of my favortite features of the
Rubicon Jeep are the standard Dana 44
axles which provide more than enough
strength for a beginner off-roader. The
engine is great, with lots of tourque.
The turning radius is great because of
its short wheel base.
Some suggested improvments that could
be made are the front bucket seats, and
rear bench seat. The materials used in
the dash could be updated.
