I been all over the world (literally) through all different types of weather in my Jeep. Hawaii -> California -> Germany -> France -> and now back in Cali. From the humidity in Hawaii to the freezing temperatures and snow in Germany, it always runs like a Beast. The extra cargo room in the back is a big plus. You can easily throw in 2 12s if you want. It always runs solid no matter what kind of terrain you are in. As long as you take care of your Jeep, your Jeep will take care of you. IT'S A JEEP THANG!

The 4WH is a beast! Taking this thing off-road is a lot of fun. Jeeps don't weigh a whole lot so that's why they will almost always out preform the next. At freezing temperatures, it's never problem to start. Runs great in the snow. Hard top makes a big difference with the outside noise. Trunk space.
Transmission could be better. Gear shifting can be rough. Over time for some reason the shift knob turns counter-clockwise little by little and you can't just force it back. It burns gas like crazy obviously. CAI helps a little bit though. There is no ABS so you will have to take it easy in the rain
