You'll want to do more and more to make it off road ready (life kit , wench , bigger tires , off road lights , etc. ) As they say J.E.E.P. -Just Empty Every Pocket

Review

Amazing vehicle, great offroad and a ton of fun. However it: gets poor mpg, rides rough, is slow, steering sucks, little storage space with rear seats in, cold in winter hot in summer, etc. It's not a logical purchase, it's not a good daily driver like an average car, and if you buy this without intending to go off road you're a fool. It's an enthusiast vehicle, a street legal offroad toy, designed for those that don't care about comfort or practicality, and are passionate about their vehicle and it's automotive sport. This isn't the vehicle for your daughter sweet 16. This isn't the vehicle you buy to look cool. It's a vehicle you buy because you go off road.

Review

I am a very maintenance conscious person, oil changes every 3000 miles, tranny fluid, antifreeze, everything. I have had so many issues with jeep. I have never had this jeep off road at all, i use it to drive back and forth to work. I have had to have two engine rebuilds, the manual transmission rebuilt, the transfer case rebuilt and many other engine problems including repeat censor problems. Most of my problems happened while it was still under warranty but i spent more time in rental cars then i did driving my own car it seems like. the death wobble was fixed when i bought aftermarket parts but jeep knows this is a problem and don't fix it.
very poor quality gets maybe 12 mpg.


Best Features

I like the looks of the jk and when it is running i love the 6 speed manual transmission. the four wheel drive works great in our harsh winters.


Worst Features

Quality of the vehicle. The jeep seems cheaply built and lacks major power and mpg. The death wobble is a known problem and is easily fixed with after market parts, if others can figure this out why can't the car maker? really need to look at quality on future builds
