I traded my '08 Rubicon two-door for an '09 Rubicon four-door(my family is growing!) about a month ago. The '08 turned out to be a great Jeep, but it had a couple of initial problems with the hardtop leaking and a defective catalytic converter. My '09 is trouble-free, and I couldn't be happier. I used to think the four-doors were ugly, but the look has really grown on me. They're only about 20 inches longer than the two-doors, and the amount of extra space you get is amazing. I'm not quite sure how the engineers did it, but I sure like it! Plus it's a Rubicon. I've owned a lot of cars and I've never been happier with one of my decisions.
Tough, straight forward Wrangler. Some deride them for being truck-like and primitive with some hard plastic surfaces in the interior. Well, you can leave it out in the rain with the top off if you want! And I like the 3.8L V6. It's powerful enough for me, and much more fuel efficient than the 4.0.
