We decided to look at 4 doors, so we drove the 4 dr Wrangler Sahara hardtop w/auto. on and off pavement. It was o.k., but overall not that impressive for all the hype out there. It was/felt/drove much 'bigger' compared to our 2 dr Unlimited we were looking to trade in. The 'new' engine, as others have mentioned, really,really needs more power for on pavement use. Bottom line, for the money DC and its dealers are demanding, we expected more. After 5 Jeeps, perhaps our needs/wants have evolved. We paid $3,000 less and got a much quicker, more flexible vehicle for our needs, a '7 Xterra Off Road Auto. Whereas, our 2 dr. Unlimited was fun off road, the X is fun on and off road. We've read numerous complaints from people concerning the JK, so drive the Xterra and see what you think. Maybe, it will fit your needs/wants as well. On the other hand, if you are a true Jeep person, nothing else will do.
