2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Open-Air Storage Solutions
March 14, 2008
Up to now, I haven't particularly enjoyed driving our long-term 2007 Jeep Wrangler. I think the Unlimited body style adds bulk without adding enough utility, and I don't like having an automatic transmission in a Wrangler.
However, I like our Jeep a lot more with the doors off. It makes our nav-equipped Sahara Unlimited feel much less serious -- and more like the adventure vehicle it's supposed to be.
In addition, it encourages resourcefulness on the part of its driver. I carry my lunch to work in a plastic bag. So I simply tie it to the grab handle to keep it from flying away.
My laptop bag? Well, that can ride in the cargo bay, which is now basically an open pickup bed.
As I drive to work, the wind buffeting me from head to toe, and the sun on my face, I feel like I'm on vacation. I can't wait for summer.
