So, I'm curious how many Jeep owners or former owners we have out there. Wranglers specifically.
I've always loved Jeeps. Never had one, unfortunately. But my Dakota is pushing 60K miles, and I'm either going to have to dump a bit of money into it (tires, brakes, etc... regular maintenance), or maybe trade it in. I'm seriously looking at getting myself an '06 Wrangler. I don't particularly like the looks of the '07, nor do I like buying a car on the first year of a major change.
Anyways, I'm not a big "off-roader", it would mostly be a daily driver. I'm fine with the gas mileage - it's about the same as my pickup, and I deal with that just fine. I mostly like it because I'm not a car guy - I need a truck or SUV. I don't particularly need a pickup for any reason - I'm a computer engineer, it's not like I carry things at my job.
The main appeal to me is the convertible in the summer / 4WD in the winter / go anywhere feel. Plus I like my car to be simple - bells and whistles and nav systems and electronic whatzits are just more things to break, the way I see it.
ANYWAYS, I'm just mostly curious about people's feelings on them as daily drivers, love / hate / don't care.
Plus I want to get rid of the pickup - I'm sick of helping people move :)
