You are in the Jeep Wrangler
What is this discussion about?
Jeep Wrangler, SUV

I have always wanted to own a Jeep Wrangler and finally got one. I bought a 2005 Wrangler Sport (with 12 miles) and picked it up last Friday. It is a blast to drive and am now kicking myself for not buying one earlier. I don't miss my 2001 BMW 530I (5sp) one bit!
One thing that takes a little getting used to is finding 5th and 6th gear (somewhat awkward -- and I know it's not me 'cause I've been driving nothing but "sticks" since I was eh hem... 13 .) Also, the "knocking" engine noise when accelerating can be a little annoying.
I hope to take down the top one of these days and maybe take it off road. We'll have to see how that goes.
Keep on Jeepin'!

Looks like you could be my twin brother.
Have you hugged your Jeep today?

Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated.

It rather depends on (a) how much you want to spend, and (b) what you want to use it for.
Models range from the basic SE, to the rock crawling specialist Rubicon. Engines can be a 2.5 or 2.4 (depending on the year) inline four cylinder , or the more powerful 4.0 inline six cylinder. Tops can be soft or hard, bodies can be short or long. Prices can be found on another part of Edmunds or on other sites.
So, what are your criteria?
P.S. For a better selection of answers try going to the actual Wrangler forum here.

Imagine how I felt when I first saw a picture of you! And then, I recall Mac making some statement about a resemblance as well.... Could D-C be guilty of profiling?
Maybe we should offer to star in a commercial for them!?!?
