The Rubicon That Replaced the Minivan

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


We are a family of five and most people with a penchant for traveling and camping would have opted for a Caravan or SUV offering a little more space. We were being pushed towards a Durango, but insisted that we go with the Jeep. We had a Jeep Cherokee in the past and missed her greatly and with the new four-door option, it was a no brainer. We grabbed the 08 Unlimited Rubicon and we are not sorry. After logging over 23,000 km on our Jeep green machine, we are definitely considering it to be a "Ruby". We travel between Ontario and B.C. through all types of weather and this vehicle has saved our skins countless times. With it's ESP and 4x4 overkill. It is the ultimate family ride!

Best Features

ESP and the lockers. Haven't used the sway bar disconnect that much as I haven't needed to. Tried to get stuck but can't!

Worst Features

I would put in the 3.0 CDR in a heartbeat. The new 4.7 would be good too but might be a bit thirsty. I would definitely put more padding in the seats and add two inches to the stretch of the vehicle. Please drop the plastic bumpers and go with some ARB-like bumpers.Improve fenders and windshield.
