I had a 2000 Sahara that I got rid of 3 years ago. I've missed driving a Jeep ever since. This past week I bought a 2007 Wrangler X 4wd. I think it's awesome; it is much quieter, much roomier and the new roof is awesome and gives you a lot of different options. It drives much more like a Cherokee but don't let it fool you it is still a Wrangler. You won't be disappointed, I highly recommend it.
The new roof - much more practical. Also, the interior is much more roomy and comfortable.
One stupid minor complaint...the doors need to be slammed to close. Outside of that this is a perfect SUV. You will get plenty of positive comments.
