I like my jeep. But you spend 20 minutes to put the roof on or off !!!! And it is impossible de do it alone. It needs at least 2 people to do it !!! So it is good if you live in a sunny state or if you dont want to convert it !
I've owned many vehicles over the years, including one other Jeep - a 1995 Wrangler. This 2006 Wrangler Unlimited is easily my favorite vehicle ever owned by far. Comfortable, way more quiet than old Wranglers, and I have zero doubts about the long-term capabilities of the 4.0 engine. I'll always own a Wrangler - they are a gateway to fun.
I LOVE MY JEEP WRANGLER. It's so much fun to drive, especially with the top down! It's kind of a rough ride, but if you don't mind the roughness of a 4 wheel drive vehicle, you will LOVE this car!! One thing you should know is that this car uses tons of gas! When I bought it I read it uses 18 mpg in city and 21 mpg on highway, but I honestly didn't realize how that corresponded to reality.! If I have to run errands all over town, even though I just filled my tank today, I have to fill it again tomorrow!! It's crazy! Also, I'm not kidding when I rated cargo space "1". There is no cargo space and no secret pockets or containers to hide things in the "trunk". There's a little tiny space in the back behind the rear passenger seats where you can fit just a few things but nothing much. I had the idea that I would buy this vehicle and take it camping, and I would be able to get to places I couldn't normally get to in my Jeep. However, I might be able to do it as long as I only bring one friend. Otherwise, we'd have to bring more than one car!! And I can't fit a cooler full of food unless I take down the back seats, but then I have to worry about my amplifier coming unplugged and then I'd have no music for the ride. There was apparently no way to put the amp under the seat because of the mechanism used to push the seat forward so passengers can get into the back seat. My passengers have told me there is a surprisingly decent amount of room for their legs back there though! Even though there are things I don't care for about this vehicle, overall I LOVE IT!! It's fun to drive, especially with the top down (just don't take it on the freeway if you don't have to!), and it rides over rocks and gravel phenominally! You can even 2 wheel drive over gravel. You don't have to use 4 wheel drive over dirt roads (I thought I did when I first bought this car). 4 wheel driving is a blast if you are in the right environment! I highly recommend a nice travel book on great 4 wheel drive adventures for your area! You need one if you get this vehicle! :)
