My jeep was show quality when I first saw it. After taking a ride in the vehicle I was convinced this was the vehicle I wanted. On highway it has a smooth ride and offroad performs great with a nimblness that continues to surprise me. I enjoy driving it every day as work vehicle and when I go offroad I have no fears in any type of situation.

Great price for a convertible. The doors are heavy with the power windows to remove and can become difficult to remove after a couple of years. Its a family SUV but still fun to drive. I suggest you avoid the automatic since the 4door Wrangler is so heavy and under powered. The 6speed is adequete and offers acceptable gas mileage (19 mpg on average for me). Your kids will love the rear seat room and driving with the doors off. Check your local State law regarding driving without side mirrors with the doors off. I wish Jeep would offer portable mirrors when driving without the doors. The hardtop is very easy to remove the front two pieces over the driver and passenger but too heavy and akward for just one or two people to remove the rear. Opt for the larger tires for better handling. It is difficult finding a comfortable driving position on long trips. Lots of squeeks and rattles but I think you have to accept that considering it is a Jeep. Of course, 4 wheel drive driving and off road is top notch. I rolled through this past years blizzard without a problem. If you want fun in the sun but need to transport the kids and all of their gear this may be the ride for you. Buy an extended warranty however.
