2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
I owned a 95 wrangler,which I loved but what an improvement they have made. Better ride, no whistling through the windows and with the addition of the four doors, much easier entry. The passenger room in the back is better than most of the other suvs I looked at. If you get the stick sift make sure you get the 3.73 gear and not the 3.21 ratio the difference in performance is like night and day.
The three piece hard top is excellent, leave the soft top for the younger crowd. The doors and their hardware are much improved and with the added two doors your passengers have no problem getting in or out.
Lose the open tray on the bottom of the door panel. I hit my knee on it getting out. And lose the hill assist you don't need it with an automatic and if you know how to drive a clutch it's just annoying.
