Why didn't I buy one sooner?

2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


My Wrangler Unlimited has brought my love of driving back. What other vehicle excites you enough to make you think about it all day at work? What other vehicle makes you feel like a kid again ... you know right after getting your first new bike when all you do is daydream about being on it? Here's my stress relief even with today's higher gas prices; hey, we all need a vice, right? Mine is spending money on gas but the fun it returns is well worth it! After work, top down, drive home with cool breeze and tunes flowing, dinner, get the kids and wife loaded in, drive the country back roads flying over bumps and raising dust to a small town ice cream shop. Drive home with stars above; kids asleep.

Best Features

Open air riding brings smiles and giggles from my 7 and 4 year olds. Wife relaxed looking skyward. Riding high and big. Smooth turning, braking, and so solid over bumps. Extra length makes for confident highway driving and extra space makes it usable with family. Love Jeep Waves and strong engine!

Worst Features

Headrests for the rear bench seat passengers. Whip-lash would be bad for kids whose heads stick above the rear seat back. Parents, be sure to use booster seats with back that extends above your little one's heads for added protection just in case of a rear-ender. MPG & range is low but expected.
