2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
Have owned lots of suvs including 3 Jeeps. The Unlimited is the most capable. It can haul more inside than a Grand Cherokee. It tows my trailer with tractor easily. Lot of leg room front and rear. JK's are 4" wider so there is shoulder room. AC is powerful as is heater. The 6 speed is smooth shifting even when it is -11 outside. Nice stereo system. 1st birthday with 18,000 miles. Not a single problem. What else can you ask for? Bottom line: Where else can you get a 4door 4wd, convertible with a great ride and unlimited options for under 20 large? No wood, no leather, no separate climate control, no fleeting styling cues. Just solid performance.
stability control. On icy curvy roads, it keeps the front headed straight. Being able to quickly drop the soft top on a nice summer day and feel the wind on my skull. Being able to quickly pop the hardtop T tops in the fall. It drives better the worse the weather becomes.
Pull the 3.8 for a more powerful, & fuel efficient motor (think 3.8 Chevy or 4.0 six). Add the Mopar seat heaters as std or at least an option on the Sahara. Really is nice on long rides. Give us the option for 4.11 gears again.
