This Unlimited Rubicon is so much fun to drive. It looks very sharp and it looks much better than the new '07' design. The best thing about this Jeep is it is a convertible. The soft top is super for the beach and summer driving. The hard top is best for winter. I took the Jeep 101 course offered through the dealership and it really showed me what my Jeep was capable of doing off-road. I feel very safe in this Jeep...much safer than in the standard wheel base model. The longer wheelbase "feels" safer on the highway and provides a better ride.
My favorite feature has to be the convertible top. Nothing beats riding with the soft top down. The whole atmosphere of fun associated with this Rubicon makes it a great vehicle. It is also very dependable.
Better gas mileage! The "06" manual 6-speed does not match the other 6 cylinder automatic transmission models for fuel economy. I expected the 20+ mpg that I got in my other 6 cylinder Wranglers but I haven't got close to this yet.
