2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I wanted one since I was a teenager; waited twenty three years and it was worth the wait. If you buy a Wrangler, you buy it because it is the original SUV, and it is built to drive off-road as much as it is on-road. Convertible for three seasons, bulldozer in the winter (if you're in a part of the USA where there is winter weather). You don't buy a Wrangler because it's practical, you buy it because it's fun.
Topless when it's warm and sunny. Takes a beating and keeps on going.
Driver's seat should fold forward as well. Offer an alternative to interior carpeting (vinyl or rubber flooring) and waterproof seating - if it rains, no big deal (when the top is down). Offer a complete skid plate and lift package.
