I have owned Jeeps all my life. I had to give up my beefed up Wrangler in 95. And have had family friendly vehicles ever since. This year as my kids got older I decided to go back to the basics. I wanted an 06 Wrangler with zero miles that I could build from scratch. It has been one month to the day and I am in a rental car all week because my Jeep is in the shop with bad lifters. I also have a dead spot as soon as I shift into third gear. I forgot how owning a Jeep meant fixing aJeep... I just did not plan on it in the first 30 days. I LOVE the Jeep. But I am bitterly disappointed with my purchase. I hope things go uphill from here
Removable top. Lift the suspension 3" and add some 33" tires and it has a great look. Fun to drive. MUCH smoother ride than my old 89 Wrangler. If it was not for the problems.... This would be ten times the Jeep my old one was. Come to think of it my old one always broke down as well.
Better gas mileage. Keep the lifters from going bad in less than 2000 miles!
