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

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

Awesome car

My 2005 wrangler now has 180 000kms on the clock and is still an awesome car reliable as the day it was bought. Gets used everyday, great car to drive and I have never had any problems with it, the car is regularly serviced and well maintained by the agents. Probably the best 4x4 I have ever owned.

Not really a daily drive

The TJ Jeep isn't a WW2 jeep at all. It's a 1990s Cherokee with the skin resembling a CJ5. As such it's road manners aren't as crazy as they could be. The 4.0L engine is robust, smooth, loads of low down grunt and drinks fuel. They look great with the wet weather gear off, which is good in SA as it hardly ever rains, but it's fiddly to get back on. They are not reliable enough to circumnavigate Australia on a budget, an old Hilux would be better. Great for extreme off road, beach bashing and cruising the esplanade with a large dog in the back. Pre 2002 ish look better as they don't have proper doors :)

offroading

Bought it a yaer ago. It runs really good and works for what i need, its good on the road and its good off the road. Theres a 3 in lift and 32in tires which make it a bit better for going offroading in. Overall it is a good car

Not Tooo Bad

I actually loved my jeep, but my female half couldn't stand it. It's quite bouncy and on the highway not the most comfortable vehicle. On the other hand the car is a beast in 4wd conditions and will go wherever you take, My main gripes were I started having lots of niggly little repairs mostly electrical. Some of the parts underneathe are a bit flimsy and I needed to modify it to make it stronger. Also very chewy on the juice. Not a bad run arround though.
I liked driving it and the sound of the engine, bit of a boys toy.
Not the most reliable and eats the juice.

Excellent

it is an awsome car if you want to go off road and want to have a few differnt roofing options/ looks . i have put new stereo in my car and the job is really easy. i love this car .
i have a tj wrangler 99 model i love it great off road, even smooth on road . i have the option to go hard top soft top and no top have had roof down during summmer .
there is a bit of a space issue but other wise fine yeah small boot , with the softtop it can be a little bit hard to get the top off if your on your own, i and if your going to take the top do it ona week end as it a bit of a pain to remove top every day . does chew fuel but what 4.0 liter 6 cylinder cars does nt.

Excellent

Love it if your single and dont have to carry people around, it is awesome for off roading in the country, and on the road people move outa your way especially if you have a bull/nudge bar!
It can go anywhere.... its really easy to drive on dirt roads and it has a very good turning circle ( small ) which makes paring and 4WD really easy. I also like the fact that i can have a hardtop, soft-top or no top and the doors are removable....i my self havent done this, but will reomve the hardtop in the summer when its hot!
Very small boot space so shopping is a hazard if there are 4 people using the car... umm in the back seat you can feel everything. Not very fuel efficent, bu come on, look at the areo - dynamics!
