Ive always wanted a Jeep Wrangler since I was about 16. Every now and then I browse around to see whats out there. It just amazes me, how much people really think their worth. Even by book they are valued high. Not so much any other Jeep. It just seems to be the Wranglers. It makes no sense since they are actually pretty cheap brand new. Ive ridden in/drove Jeeps all my life. My brother had a Jeep. Several friends had Jeeps. Thats how I got attracted to them so much. And I just dont understand why they are worth so much. Even though I wouldnt want to own one for a daily driver, and a toy is all I think they are good for, my personal opinions of why I dont think they should be worth jack....... -They are very low geared (Makes highway driving bad) -They are very rough riding -Practically zero luxury options -Performance is very weak (4.0 with boltons has potential) -A lot of cabin noise (even hard tops) -Practically a 2 seater -Piss poor gas mileage (even 2.5) -Mass amounts produced -Mechanically, not all that reliable. Most Jeep enthusiests who have owned nothing but Jeeps their own life, that I know personally, will admit they are prone to breaking with minimal to no off-roading. Every person I know who has owned a Jeep was always fixing something on it. And these are guys who take very good care of it. So from experience I definitely wouldnt say they are rugged as steel. Maybe more rugged than a KIA but not the toughest most abused withstanding machine on the road. These negative factors above are from stock Wranglers too. Think about 70% of Jeeps out there today. Most have at least a small lift and bigger tires. That at a minimum affects your ride quality/comfort, increses noise, and performance decrease. Especially on the 2.5L. I just never understood why. :shrug: What do you guys think?
