2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


I traded in a 1992 Mercedes 300SL for a 2006 Rubicon. I've driven SL class MB for 20 years. My friends were shocked. The bottom line is I love the Rubicon and have no regrets on the trade. The simplicity of the design and excellent build quality are great. Mileage is only about 16.5 mpg. The highway ride is surprising compliant considering the offroad capabilities. Maneuverability in tight areas is outstanding. The fun factor is +10. The Rubicon has already proved to be a versatile work horse at our farm. Aftermarket parts support is amazing and one of the reason I selected a Jeep. "It's a Jeep thing" has real meaning to me now.

Best Features

Simplicity of design is my favorite feature. The Rubicon's beefy drivetrain is so robust it makes keeping the vehicle +20 years a legitimate option. I wanted the last year of the TJ because it's destined to be an instant collector's classic.

Worst Features

It's tough to find fault. My only improvement suggestion is the stereo speakers are a little weak on sound quality.
