Comments about roof leaks

Some people below talked about the roof leaking.
The JK Wrangler was sold in Australia from 2009 - 2019
The JL Wrangler has been sold in Australia since 2019

If you have the hard top of either model, both allow you to take the front panels off the roof. The seals on the JK were sometimes faulty and a few of them leaked. The roof panels of the JL were re-designed. They are lighter, they are easier to remove and they do not leak.

Fantastic fun second car

I have a 2003 with half doors and soft top. Such a fun second car for those perfect summer days in Perth. It definitely comes into its own when going off road, take the top off and hit the bush, goes anywhere and is way more fun than those 4x4 suv’s with their windows up and ac on. Definitely needs at least a 2” lift and some 33’s to give you more travel and clearance when you’re into serious 4x4 country. Not the best car for a long trip because of the wind noise but as a fun second car it’s a keeper. Can’t see myself ever selling mine Show details

drive it like a truck

its a light truck,drive it such and it will last.not like a sports car. I replaced suspension, steel rear bumper and steel bulbar. still leaks water inside and plan to reseal,maybe for good. roof get radiating scorching hot ,plan to line with insulation. bad ball joints,outer bearing is plastic! so cheap.the cause of the death wobbles. replace with all steel bearing ball joints with grease nipples , problem solved with no death wobbles.
great 4WD, as with all short wheel base gets uncomfortable on long trips. Show details

Best car ever if you are a ‘car person’

Have had Jeeps going back to the YJ.
A lot of downsides if you are not going to actually use it off-road. But as soon as the tyres hit dirt, then it’s game on baby!

Also, you will be spending $$$ on mods! Show details

Luv Luv Luv it

Used mostly around town and mostly just myself as a daily drive. It is a two door so short wheel base. Surprisingly nimble around town. Wife/passenger complains of harsh suspension. Show details

good car let down by service

had this car since new and it turned me off the brand
the problems it had in the 8 years of ownership are beyond belief
it never stopped leaking water when it rains even after replacing all the seals twice
burns fuel like a cruise ship (16 lt/100 kms)on average
handling to the point of being dangerous
it brakes down every few months (oil cooler,radiator,various seals)
there is no drain plug to change the auto oil makes it an expensive job
brakes are only for show it needs about 150 metres to pull up from 60 k/hr
in general this car only looks good and attracts people loyal to the brand
i will never buy another  Show details

Love this car. It has its pros and cons but if you love easy servicing and adventure. It’s for you!

I use this car for a range of applications. Mine is a 2015 model unlimited. I do some 4wd, highway and town. I just love it! I do most of the servicing myself and it hasn’t missed a beat.
The things that aren’t great about it are:
It’s loud inside (I just turn up the radio!)
It handles like an old mountain goat- for the most part it’s great, don’t take it too fast around corners they are known to tip.
Their safety rating: it’s a death trap but I willingly take the risk because I love it
Insurance can be pricey so shop around.

Otherwise it’s a beast and I look forward to having it for many years  Show details

JEEP WRANGLERS X 2

We have 2 x TJ Wranglers in the family, a 1997 and a 2005, both modified for serious 4WD'ing, at which they absolutely excel themselves. They have both been fantastic vehicles, and just the best fun in the bush or city driving. Relatively easy to work on yourself, and when it's something we can't do, we always use an independent Jeep Specialist Workshop as opposed to a Dealership, because we find everything about them to be of a superior standard, at a greatly reduced price. This applies to all 4 of our family's Jeeps. We also source many parts & accessories from USA at great savings, as well as independent specialist Jeep parts sellers in Oz. Joining a Jeep Club to go 4WD'ing is great too. Show details

I love my Jeep!

My wife, our friends and I are into bush walking. I needed a car that can do a little bit of off- roading. To my own surprise, I got a 2 door Jeep Wrangler! I love it. Great to drive both on road and off road.

We love to take the top off, even on a cold winters day! It has a terrific turning circle so it is easy to manouver in a car park. I have had it a year now and the first service has just been done. $330, fixed price for 5 years.

Wrangler drivers wave to each other and its just another reason to love it. If you have a family, you might want a 4 door.

I love my Jeep!

Best car i have ever owned!

If you want a car that is always an experience, not just something to get you from point A to point B. Mechanically the car is quite expensive to maintain, but worth every cent! Show details

It’ll take you places you never thought you’d go!

Cons: it gets uncomfortable on long trips.
Pros: bulletproof off-road ability, retro looks, it’ll take you places you’ve never been before.
I’ve had mine three years and no problems at all. The only problem is deciding where to go next! Show details

230k on the clock and still going strong

I use this car every day and goes off road at least one weekend a month. I haven't modified the engine in any way. The only issue I have had in 230k kms has been the 4wd transfer linkage and the plastic bushes. Only things I have changed on the car have been belts, oil, air filter. Only mods are a 2imch lift and bigger tyres. Most reliable car I have owned.
I don't take my car to the dealership to be serviced tho, since its double the price of every where else and they never seem to have parts. Show details
