1997 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD


I love my jeep. Its been a fun
dependable car that I've took off
roading many times and have never had a
problem with it. It only has 70,000
but everything works and it still runs
great after all the abuse I put it
through. There are only 3 think I
dislike and they are:
1. Soft tops are noisy on the Highway.
2. Gas Mileage stinks
3. 2.5L Has now power in 5th gear and
stinks on long drives. I find myself
downshifting alot on long highway trips.

Best Features

Big Tires. Fun Offroad. Buy a 97 or up because they changed the suspension in 97. They got rid of the leaf springs and went to coil springs....much much better.

Worst Features

Get rid of the 2.5L and just put 4.0L in them all. The 2.5L is underpowered for a jeeep. The 2.5 is dependable...just weak on the highway.
