The thing I notice most in it is at highway speeds you really notice that you are driving something with a vertical windshield. I have a gruelling 5 mile commute so it is not a major thing.
Hah, yeah... I forgot that.
My gf's is red, and we call it the "little brick". I don't know how bad wind can get down your way, but up here it can rip through the valleys pretty good on some days, and crossing the rivers on the high bridges can be a real experience when driving the "little brick".
And it's become almost a joke that every time I'm driving it, it's a wind advisory day... But still fun for sure.
Another thing I like about the Wrangler, it's the most maneuverable vehicle I've ever driven besides a US Mail truck... the USPS uses S10's with aluminum bodies, and their front wheel width is shortened so it can turn on a dime to a point it easily will tip. It's the only thing I've ever driven that is sharper to turn than a Jeep Wrangler... They can fit into the tiniest parking spots because of that though. In a city like Pittsburgh, it's helpful. Not sure if that's something you'll care about down there though. It helped in Chicago though, for certain.
Diane's is a 4.0, 6 Cy., 5-speed, it's pretty powerful... What do they have now? Hers really has a nice jump from a dead start.
