We are just finishing clean up after the storm that closed I-78 and schools for days. This Rubicon Unlimited just paid for itself. It drove us safely through and over the ice covered snow on roads that were a nightmare. The 4 wheel high was enough...no need for low gear or the lockers. We were able to go to work, help neighbors, and keep going when the rest of the area was shut down. This jeep just proved why we need one. It provided safety and security in bad weather to equal the fun and enjoyment in good weather. Now when people ask why we need an SUV, we simply refer to the storm of 2007...enough said.
GREAT in the snow and winter weather. Unbeatable with the top down. So much fun.
Gas mileage is still bad but who cares when you are getting 13+ mpg in 4 wheel drive while others can't get out of their driveways. Still, better gas mileage wouldn't hurt say, 20 town, 25 highway would be great rather than the 15-16 local and 18-19 highway that we get. Keep the Jeep a Jeep!
