I grew up with Jeeps and I have always wanted a new Wrangler. So after many years of saving, I purchased an 06. I love it! The gas mileage could be better. But, HEY! I knew that buying it. Just so much I want to do to it, not enough time, well money LOL. I completely hate the 2007's. I wanted a 4X4 plus convertible. Wrangler is the only one that offers it. My old CJ-7 has 245K miles. I am so confident that this will beat the miles on my old one. I love it!
Color, manual, high off the ground, options are endless.
Do not make the new ones. Jeeps are meant to be boxy not bubbly, the inside - not much has modified that's why I love it. Now it's got that futuristic look to it. It's not a true Wrangler.
