In the last year or so, of my last one, I just felt beat-up and nervous driving on the highway.
Emergency maneuvers and passing idiots on cellphones became worrisome.
I knew that I couldn't drive it like an asshat in BMW, but sometimes I'd be late to catch my train, and I'd need to "hustle".
Motivating it at "urgent" highway speeds became a white-knuckled affair.
I just got tired of it as highway car.
It's not really a criticism of the vehicle. I just got older, and the things that didn't initially bother me about the Wrangler started to slowly wear away at me.
I'd get used one in a heartbeat, as long as I still have the GTI for highway use.
Nice review. You should mention it in other threads every once in a while.
Don't mod the damn thing. Hold out for the next one and buy it a year or two old with somebody else's disposable money slapped on (i.e. LED lights, rock rails, better axles, paracord grab handles add like 7 bro points)
As predicted with the onslaught of JLs out there, the 08-11 are getting stupid cheap. Soon.
Haha don’t worry I really hate mud. That was mostly sandy runoff in the small creek. Did have to use all the Rubicon goodies to do some of the level 3 trails out there but it did them with ease. Probably could have done some of the advanced level 4s if I had 35s on it and no other mods. It’s a really, really impressive piece of kit and so much better in every way than my 10A JK Rubicon was.

I also inquired as to the rear glass for the hardtop to fix the defroster, guy told me it would be sometime mid-May, I told him to just forget it because I’ll be back to the soft top by then. I’ll deal with it in the fall.
