2009 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


This is not a car to drive to the grocery store and bring your Grandmother/Mother/Sister/Wife/Girlfriend/Mistress! This is s purpose built "offroad" vehicle with some garnish of comfort. The Navigation system is excellent and leaves "crumbs" to find your way back on an unmarked trail. The 4WD system is best in low range when you lock the front and rear differentials. Do not skimp and get a cheaper Wrangler, you truly get what you pay for with the Rubicon model with beefier axles, better gearing, offroad tires, differentials, and an electronic disconnecting anti roll bar for better wheel articulation.

Best Features

Easy to wash! Freedom Top is remarkably refined and easy to take off. Bumpy ride quality to fend off the fluff. Fantastic brakes with thick rotors. Buttery smooth shifting automatic.

Worst Features

More powerful"Phoenix" V6 they are going to use in the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee. V8's would make it too front heavy the V6 has better weight packaging behind the front axle.
