Jeep Wranglers

A: I restore and sell jeeps as a hobby Ive had many of them go thru my hands with high mileage and still run great. the highest Ive seen was a buddy of mine who had 250000 miles on his. basically you can not kill the 4.0 six cylinder or 2.5 4 cylinders in those things. the basic thing to remember is to just keep up your basic maintenance and take care of the motor.

Q: How long do Jeep Wranglers really last for?
I recently just bought 2000 Jeep wrangler Sahara, she has 90K on her. I heard the body will start to rust before the engine and its parts. It has the inline 6 cylinder, from what i heard one of the best engines? Are wranglers really that reliable? How long do they usually last before you need to start putting work into them?

A: I have a 2000 wrangler with the 4 liter straight 6. 157k miles, I have replaced the radiator and some seals on the differential. Nothing else besides the usual. Brakes,oil, tires etc. Very reliable still in great shape.I absolutely love it.

Q: What are the dimensions of a jeep wranglers trunk?
I think i might be getting a jeep wrangler
but i will be driving with my top down the majority of the summer..
but i am planning on putting leaving my longboard in my jeep

I will just lock the trunk and keep it in there
but will it fit???

What are the dimensions of a jeep wranglers trunk??

A: Well if you have the top down there is no trunk to lock anything up with unless you get the insta-trunk. It is basically a locking top you buy that attaches to the tub behind the back seat.

But either way, a longboard will not fit in the back of a wrangler. I looked up longboards and they are around 41" long. I just went out and measured the length in the back of my wrangler and it is only 36" across. It is about 9" wide so it would fit width wise but not length wise.

You might fit one in if you have an Unlimited. They have a larger space behind the back seat and it might fit if you put it in at an angle.

Q: Is there any available stereo wiring harnesses or install dash mounts for 2007 Jeep Wranglers?
I was told that Scosche did not offer any aftermarket stereo wiring harnesses or any stereo mounting kits for the new Jeep Wranglers due to the fact that the factory stereo's wiring was completely different than previous models. Is this true and is there any company that might be up to speed with producing a harness or mounting kit at this time. Also, would this be available soon?

A: How's it going? I hope this site will help you find the answer your looking for. My best friend works here. All you have to do is click your type of vehicle, model, and year. Then you can see the dash kits wiring harness and whatever is available. I hope this helps.

Q: Do 2009 Jeep Wranglers include a tool to remove the screws of the hard-top?
... or you will need to provide your own tools? Any particular stuff the dealer must include with new Jeeps Wranglers? I bought a 2k9 Wrangler Sahara and just included the t-top sleeve as an accessory. 1st car I buy/1st jeep I have!

A: Got a 2009 Wrangler Unlimited myself, and yes, you can use the torex key which came with your manuals. Personally, I have purchased a small ratchet wrench from a pawn shop and went to Lowe's for the torex socket, it makes it allot easier. Can't remember the size, but I think it was a "10". Good Luck

Q: How long do 4 cylinder Jeep Wranglers last?
Hey all i was wondering how long the 4 cylinder Jeep Wranglers last? 2000-2004. I'm interested in getting one, Manual transmission, but i have been having a hard time finding a 6 cyl in my area. Thanks

A: The key is proper care. If you abuse it it, it won't last as long as one that was taken care of. I know jeeps that have had over 100,000 miles on them and they are 4 cylinders.

Q: How are insurance rates on 2007-2008 Jeep Wranglers? Is it wiser to lease or buy one of these?
I am currently in college and I have always wanted a Jeep Wrangler. My current vehicle is 1999 GMC Jimmy and it continuously has problems. I want to get into something more reliable that also goes well with my active lifestyle. Any other suggestions?

A: Don't lease a Jeep i dont think your girlfriend will like a Jeep.

Q: Are big and tall people comfortable in Jeep Wranglers? What is the interior like in a Wrangler?
I know that if you're big and tall, some cars work better for you than others.

How is this with regard to the Jeep Wrangler?

A: what are you asking for go to a dealership and sit in one.

Q: Are there older jeep wranglers with automatic transmission?
I really want to get a jeep as my first vehicle, but as my parents do not have a vehicle with a manual transmission, id either have to get my friend to teach me, or try to learn it myself (and hoping not to ruin the engine), so i just want to know if there are any older jeep wranglers that are automatic.
by older, i mean like 1990s. my parents are only willing to spend $5,000 for a vehicle.

A: Yeah of course, but driving stick is easy, you are not going to ruin anything if you have someone teach you who knows what they are doing. it only takes like 2 hours to learn, and 2 days to get it down smooth. get a jeep wrangler for what its meant for dude, dont be scared of it.

Q: What are the three most gay colours on Jeep Wranglers?
And no i dont mean 'gay' as in the worst, I mean gay as in not straight. Well, black, obviously, but what are the top three colours? Are other Jeeps considered gay cars also?
Please understand, this is not a criticism, I've just heard that black wranglers are sort of an icon car and am curious if its the colour and car combined or just the car.
Thanks
so aggressive ladybug? lol. claws in for a minute and lets try not to be so catty. A simple question. If you dont know the answer, you can just say so. i wont think your dumb.

A: Cars have no sexual orientations. They are inanimate objects. Get over it.

Q: Are Jeep Wranglers good to drive on the highway?
I want to buy a Jeep Wrangler Sport but my brother said they aren't good on the highway? is he just jealous? l0l I drive to work on the highway and it takes me 30 minutes. I drive a lot actually. What do you think?

A: look i will lay it down for you honestly, i have a rubicon with a 4.5 inch lift, running on 35' super swampers, mine does not get any gas mileage at all, about 9-11mpg. But that was my choice. A stock jeep with 4.0 will get around 16-19mpg. If you are a heavy commuter i would say gas mileage would be the major factor against it. On the upper hand there are many good qualities of a jeep, i don't know who said it earlier on here "that jeeps are ok off-road" dude they are the best what planet are you from. And friendly stranger was wrong on quality also, jeeps are extremely tough and rugged that's what they were designed for, no they don't come with all of the bells and whistles of those fancy commercial cars, but that's the beauty of it, you don't need it with a jeep a jeep needs no handicap. They are noisy on the road but what soft top vehicle isn't, they do have a rough ride, a lot rougher before 1997 when jeeps had leaf spring suspension, after 97 they ran with coil springs, a lot more flex, and a lot smoother ride, but still designed for off-roading. No they are not a waste of money if you want one buy it, they are not cheap. Dangerous yes buthat'sts part of the thrill of having one( look at it this way it's safer than riding street bikeke). Insurance is not that bad either, of course you may have to shop around for the best deal, but either way its reasonable.

Q: How much do you think 2002 jeep wranglers go for now-a-days? im thinking of buying one?
I really want a jeep but i cant spend that much money on it. how much would you think jeep wranglers several yrs old will go for?

A: You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here - autoinsurance.noneto.com

Q: are jeep wranglers practical for first cars?
i am absolutely in love with jeep wranglers but i've seen many for sale recently and i don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing? my parents keep saying they're not safe because they roll easily, but are they good vehicles? just wondering. i probably won't be getting a car for another year anyway, but i just love them!

A: Jeep Wranglers are great vehicles. That was my first car a few months ago, and now I am trading it in for another Wrangler. (a newer one thats in better condition. nothing wrong w/ my 1st one). Any SUV can roll over if you drive crazy, but if you drive normally and legally, you'll be fine. They are great in the winter, (4x4), amazing in the summer with the top down and the doors off. People might be selling them because they don't get the best gas mileage, but I don't look at that. I have a job, so my $ goes towards my Wrangler. And not all of it either. Like the previous guy said, get the 4.0L 6 cylinder, the 4 cylinder is way too weak. As for auto vs man transmission, thats up to you. I got an auto because I live in the city and don't want to mess around shifting gears. Whichever you get, you won't regret it and you'll have a blast owning one. Don't forget to wave to fellow Wrangler owners!

Q: are automatic jeep wranglers bumpy when you drive them?
I'm thinking about getting a jeep wrangler maybe a 2000 or a 2001. It'll be my first car. I was just wondering if it is a good "driving-everyday" type of car and if it rides smooth or bumpy.

A: Yes it's bumpy. However, i drive mine almost everyday(2000 Wrangler Sport 4.0L). its my favorite vehicle that my family has to drive around town or elsewhere (we have a chevy truck and a 2004 BMW..... that has to say something about how fun jeeps are to drive :D they are fun). on smooth roads, its perfectly fine. on rough roads, its bumpy. Its a Jeep Wrangler though. Its a Jeep thing!
O|||||||O

Q: Do you find that jeep wranglers have enough driver space?
I want to get a jeep wrangler in a couple of year and im 6'2 ill probly be around 6'5-6'6ish when i get my jeep. Will i have enough room in the drivers seat cuz some jeeps have little room on the interior

A: The driver and passenger seats are roomy, its the back seat that wasn't designed for "adults" in mind. Go to a dealership and sit and drive one.

If you're gonna spend that kind of cash, you should at least check them out in person. Personally, I love mine
