2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my fourth Jeep and the build
quality is far better than my last
three Jeeps. There were no factory
defects at all. The engine is very
powerful and smooth running. The ride
is far smoother and quieter than I
expected with those knobby tires
(although not car-like). The 4-wheel-
drive system is unstoppable. My only
suggestions are; get the hard top as
the soft top is very difficult to
install / remove & note that
the "gray" interior is really black
(very hard to keep clean). I could
not be more pleased with this Jeep.


Best Features

Manuverability / fun to drive.


Worst Features

The vehicle is so air-tight with the hard top on that the doors have to be slambed a little too hard. Biggest problem: My wife keeps coming to my workplace parking lot and driving the Jeep away, leaving her damn Suburban for me to drive home in (maybe I need two Jeeps).

2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Besides my 04 Rubicon I also have a
2000 Sport 5m. Both have dual tops.
The 2000 gets 17 mpg the Rubicon gets
12 MPG. I drive both the same. It's
time to bring out the turbo diesel 4
cyl and see what it can do. Don't get
me wrong I would buy it again. But
like others my 3/4 ton chevy 4X4 gets
17 mpg. I am headed to Moab next week
I'll see how it holds up.


Best Features

Compaired to the 2000 sport - stock lockers, Dana44 axles, beefy transfer case. My 2000 has the Dana 44 out back.


Worst Features

Fuel economy, horse power. Raise the driver seat up. The 2000 seats are more comfortable.

2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

When I purchased my Jeep everyone
worried I would suffer from buyers
remorse since it was such a big change
from my Honda Civic EX 4 door. I love
this car and can't wait to go driving
in it. It handles much better then any
Jeep I have ever driven and I still
smile when I get behind the wheel. I
wouldn't trade it in for anything.


Best Features

I love the fact that it is bigger so folks fit more comfortable. Love the standard overhead speakers. I have so many options on air... down, slightly back or certain windows off. It's great having options.


Worst Features

Better seats in back. Perhaps a trunkish option. (I heard rumors there are ones out there but dealer had no idea what I was talking about)

2004 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

HUNG UP THE FIRST TIME IN MUD WITH
FACTORY TIRES. RIDES LIKE A TANK.
CRUISE AND TILT MAKE IT ROADWORTHY FOR
TRIPS. HOT WEATHER, TURN ON THE A/C. A
3:07 REAR END GETS 22MPG SOMETIMES,
CRUISES AT 1750 RPM @ 65 MPH, NO
STRAIN, USE LOW RANGE TO CLIMB THE
TOUGH HILLS WITH THIS JEEP. FOR
$21,800.00 CHRYSLER SAW US COMING AND
NOW YOU SEE US GOING-----OVER THE HILL
ON ONE TIRE....DIDN'T GET A TRAIL
RATED STICKER ON THIS 2004 JEEP, PLUS
THE PAINT SUCKS, ON THIS JEEP.


Best Features

JEEP FORDING CREEK


Worst Features

HARD AND SOFT TOP STANDARD ON EACH JEEP, SHOULD HAVE BOTH. BIGGER TIRES AND A HIGH PERFORMANCE 4 CLYINDER ENGINE THAT WILL JET BLUE FLAMES FROM THE TAIL PIPES, DUAL EXHAUSTS PLEASE.
