2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

This is my first Jeep but after having a GMC Jimmy there's no comparison. Steering is light but responsive, corners well and the highway ride is much improved over past generations. Noise is still there but not dominating. Engine isn't a powerhouse but with the 6 spd that's up to the driver, and it can go fairly well. No problems with the roof or door seals. Suspension is firm but in town it doesn't have a problem absorbing northern Alberta potholes. If you want a cushy ride, buy a Crown Vic. I plan to have this thing for a long time, and so far so good!

Favorite Features

Good seats, decent outward visibility, great tires and rims and (with hard top) handles northern Canadian winters quite well. Pay the extra for the infinity sound system w/ sub!

Suggested Improvements

Squeeze a little more power outta the engine bay (maybe a diesel?), charge less for the MyGig (i can buy the same features individually in stores for a fraction of the cost). Gate safety in reverse (6spd) tends to be finnicky so its best to go into neutral and give it a row or two before going into R.
