Nice, but Liked my CJ5 Better
By Maui Jeep on


2008 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


This is a Hawaii Jeep so the top is off a lot. Sunrider top is easy and quick. Still surprised by the poor gas mileage but it's improved to about 16 city and 22 highway with 5,000 miles on the odometer. I wanted the shorter model but the unlimited rides better. Back seat entry is best left to the kids. Can't see the wheel flairs so be careful around close quarters. Steering wheel diameter seems larger than what it needs to be. Maybe its my memory, but my 78 CJ5 was more of a kick to drive. Other 4WD I've owned: Toyota 4-Runner, Tundra PU, Chev Blazer and half ton PU.

Best Features

Cruising Maui with the top down. Park it anywhere. Off road capability.

Worst Features

Make steering wheel smaller. Improve the gas mileage.
