This is my first Jeep, although I have owned other 4wd vehicles. This 4 wheel drive system is the best I have had, other have included Ford, Chevy and Toyota. I have the 6 speed manual tranny, I shift quickly and am easy on the gas and average 20.7 MPG (both highway and city). I have the hardtop with the removable sections over the driver and passenger. No leaks after removing them a few times and reinstalling. Open the door in the rain though and you will get a stream of water in the truck as water follows the gap in front and into the vehicle rather than down the glass on a closed front door. Ride is good up front but in the back you sit on the axle making it bumpy. It is what it is.
You could roast a marshmallow on the heater vents, they crank. Brakes work great, handling is nice. The 4 wheel drive system is the best.
Levers to open the side windows in the rear of the vehicle. With the windows open or the front tops off the winds whips around to the point of pulling your glasses off.
