    I'll answer this one for him, because they rust faster then honda's, most are gutless, and they didn't change the body style for about 20 years :lol:
    I'm not big on them either, I'd never buy one myself but I don't hate them or anything.

    Jeeps are one of the worst vehicles to own ever. Nothing but problems.

I'm only speaking from first hand experience!! :shrug:

    you will know if you are a "jeep person" in the first 5 minutes you are in one. my Bf had a 02 TJ and we loved it but i wouldnt get one if it wasnt 4.0L 5 speed, if you want a fun time go on one of the "jeep Jamborees" definalely an awesome time so i have heard from my BF :pissed:

    easy fixes:

    fibreglass body, 4.0, decent resale $.

    jeeps are a riot in the mud. My brother in law had one for a few years & we used to have a ball jeepin' around in that rig.

    Funny I know of at least 6 people who have owned or currently own jeeps. One of them was so fucked up the dealer game them a brand new one because they couldn't keep up with the warranty work. As for the snow, a short wheelbase isn't exactly what you want for a snow going 4x4.

    THe short wheel base is the main reason they aren't highly rated for off roading,...besides the fact that everything breaks on them....

    Now I am not saying dont buy one, but if its used make sure you know the history on it, and if its new just make sure you check out the ratings and do research because once you take it off road if you plan on do it....leasing it wont matter because you will void warranty quickly...

    I had a 90 YJ about 6 years ago. It was a very cool vehicle. I was and still am a car guy, but for a fall, winter, spring ride it was a blast. I was never really into hardcore off roading, but we did some trails, crossed some rivers, climbed hills. We found all kinds of trails and went anywhere in it. I made sure I got the six cylinder and had a soft and hardtop. it was a great truck, no reliability problems at all. I only got rid of it because I couldn't afford to keep insurance on both in the summer and the GTI won out. I'd buy one now though for a second vehicle, although not new. I'd look for something a bit older, before they softened them up.

    Well considering that the dealer holds Yearly off road excursions for all there customers I can't see where this statement holds any value!!

    When I had mine I was told I could preety much do anything with it & add pretty much anything I wanted to it as well!

    Whatever fucking tool said they aren't highly rated offroad because of a short suspension needs to do some quick research on approach/departure/breakover angles and then edit thier post.

    This is true, otherwise the army would have never been using them. Sure they use mainly hummers now, but they did and probably still do use jeeps.

    I'm on my 3rd jeep now and love it, I have a 1998 Jeep Sahara and i've owned this one for 2 years and the only thing i've put my money on was a windsheild wiper motor. Besides that everything runs smooth.

    As for in the snow not the very best cause of the short wheel based mentioned. Alot of people think they hare very handy in the snow just because of the 4 wheel drive but that's the only advantage. I enjoy taking the top and doors off and just go for a drive during the summer time. Here's a pic of mine.

    It's the only one i could find on my pc at work. Was taking during a golf tournement this summer.

    lets see.. I have driven for lenthy periods 4cly, 6 cly (carburated) 6cly FI , auto and manual of both.

    lets begin.

    the ride is attrocious. (short wheel Base / leaf springs)
    the handling is scary. (see above)
    the power is pathetic in any version. (downshifting on uphills)
    the transmission/shifting is sloppy
    the gasmileage is pathetic (better have lots of money)
    the road noise is annoying
    the price is STUPIDLY inflated for what you get.
    the might as well come rusty.
    4WD sucks in the winter and you better not even consider anywhere in 2WD
    braking is twitchy (nose diving)


    hrm..need any other reasons?

    For one thing when I bought my jeep, I was well aware, seeing as how it was a very archaic truck, what I was getting into. Noise and roughness are byproducts of having a drop top 50 year old designed jeep. I still loved it though :D

    No one ever mentioned it being a Cadillac. Jeeps are supposed be rough, that's the whole point.

    I guess it's just a personal opinion when it comes down to different rides.

    Jeeps sure don't ride the best, handle the best but they do well offroad. Removeable roof and doors is sweet, aftermarket is amazing but they are just plain fun to drive in for some reason.

    I used to transport whole parties in that thing. We would take out the back seats and load up. I think my record was 17 people and their liquor in one trip :o She was the deluxe too, had wood paneling and all!!
