We've owned numerous brands, various models. Traded a 4X4 Suburban for a Prius. We missed the off-road experiences and recently purchased the '09 Rubicon (kept the Prius, thank God). The Rubi was taken off-road immediately in the California desert. Buttes, sand, rock, highway, all very enjoyable. The side airbags were a must for our family. The Navi with it's "breadcrumb" feature is a plus. Music beats and movies move with the sound system. Very happy with the decision to buy this Jeep. v/r, br
Jeep's looks and Rubi's off-road ability. The vehicle in Orange Burst Orange is an eye-catcher. Oh, the tires survived razor-sharp rocks during 3 climbs of our favorite butte (2 other 4x4s I've brought there suffered flats and didn't make it to the top).
The Wrangler is known for its spartan features. That being said, this Rubi fits the bill and lacks nothing. Sure, comfort features could always be added. But at some point the Wrangler would no longer be a Wrangler. Buy it, ride it, enjoy it for what its made for. You'll never regret it.
