Well that kind of depends... A Wrangler makes perfect sense to me. I live at the edge of a national forest where I hunt, fish, hike, etc. Many of the "roads" are blown out badly enough a normal pickup will scrape and drag their way along. My 4 door wrangler thrives in that environment and still has enough room for my gear.If you really stopped to analyze it, no Wrangler purchase makes sense. They are not practical, love gas, handle worse than my 1984 Chevette and aren’t the best built vehicles on the road.
I have no love for 4xe … not at all. A 392 would make me smile a lot and is that not the reason why we put up with the Wrangler’s shortcomings?
All that and it's decent on the road, 22 mpg average, incredible resale, easy to work on and I can haul the kids around in it. There aren't a whole lot of vehicles around that match that kind of practicality for me.
