I recently bought a 1999 jeep wrangler Sahara 6-cyl 4.0l. I love working on it mainly because it is very simple. You can find spare parts everywhere. On that note, they are very easy to fix. By owning a jeep, there is a never-ending list of things you can do to customize your ride. My only complaints are that jeeps are very hard to maintain. There is a lot of work required for owning an older model jeep. For instance, JEEPS ARE KNOWN FOR RUST. While purchasing a used jeep, be sure to check the frame! From past expieriences, I can tell you that I have spend a fortune on rust repair mainly on my frame. Overall, buying a jeep is a very wise decision. They are a lot of fun but hard to maintain at the same time. I would take a jeep over a sports car anyday!!

This Wrangler Sport 1999 is great. Used synthetic oil since 1998. Runs great on road but awesome off road. Been in sleet, mud, snow, floods! It keeps going! Literally everywhere. But...its bad on gas of course. It is prone to dents, it does have blind spots...granted a lot of vehicles do. But it has 181000 miles and still runs. But gas prices have me thinking to opt for another vehicle. So I won't get much if I traded it in. If I fix it up, it will cost me $2k ie new top, paint, tires etc. I will get a lot more, close to $5k if I did. On other hand, I might keep it as a back up too. Either way, I am glad to have this Jeep. It's been fun!

Purpose built

Although I've never had a Wrangler, I've always had a 4x4 of some sort to get to my out-of-the-way country house and do the chores necessary in the woods such as bringing in materials and equipment, dropping trees, cutting and splitting for cordwood. Since my wife would not be seen in a pick-up truck, despite the fact that my boys would welcome one, all of this and more were done in a larger SUV often with a trailer in tow. The Jeep fills in the role perfectly. The road to the house is very rough, hilly and is often washed out by heavy rains. The Jeeps' short wheel base, steep entry and exit angles, 4x4 ability and small size work well here (an older 4x4 system without limited slip differential, oh, and I don't climb rocks)

I recently purchased this 1999 Wrangler Sahara and am really impressed with how much fun it is to drive, and how many heads it turns for being 14 years old. It's simple by design yet sophisticated enough to use for business on occasion. Love it thus far!

These Wranglers with the 4.0 Inline engine are the MOST RELIABLE engines ever made. These things were bullet proof, and if you can snag one up, then do it. These vehicles were made for the army to take abuse, and they can, and will still perform the way you want them to. The factory parts are some of the best out there, but Jeeps can be modified so much, and be made even more fun. The more mods the better!

I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara with 33 inch tires and American Racing wheels! I love the way this Jeep Drives and handles the "unbeaten" path! Very Reliable I have 127,900 miles on and no major problems. Runs great drives great. Has a little rust like most Jeeps from the sand and mud. Overall This is the Ultimate 4X4, not to mention the fun of going topless in the summer! :)

Jeep Wranglers have been built solid for off road and on for decades. This has been a very reliable vehicle for me, and I would recommend owning a Jeep Wrangler to anyone who enjoys the outdoors, or just enjoys being able to put the top down and go for a ride.

I HAVE OWNED MY JEEP FOR 4 YEARS NOW AND 3 OTHERS BEFORE THAT, WITH CONFIDENCE I CAN TESTIFY TO THE VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE. I BOUGHT MINE WITH 100,000 MILES ON THE INLINE 6 ENGINE AND SINCE I HAVE LIFTED THE SUSPENSION 4 INCHES, MOUNTED 33X12.50 TIRES AND INSTALLED 4.11 GEARS IN THE DIFFERENTIAL , I NOW HAVE 150,000 MILES ON IT WITH A GOOD NUMBER OF THOSE OFF ROAD OR OFF TRAIL. MY FUEL USAGE WAS SLIGHTLY AFFECTED WITH 15-16 MPG HIGHWAY. THESE JEEPS A THE PERFECT CAR TO CUSTOMIZE AND IF YOU ARE LIKE ME WHO GETS BORED WITH YOUR RIDE QUICKLY THE JEEP IS PERFECT BECAUSE SIMPLY TAKE OF THE TOP AND DOORS TO DISCOVER YOU HAVE A NEW DRIVING EXPERIENCE AWAITING YOU. ALSO THE JEEP IS RELIABLE DUE TO THE FACT JEEP HAS USED THE SAME I-6 ENGINE SINCE 1987, IT IS IN THE CHEROKEE (ANOTHER DEPENDABLE TRUCK) THE MANUAL TRANSMISSION AX-15 IS PROVEN THROUGH AND THROUGH, ALSO STANDARD ON THE DODGE DAYTONA. IF YOU FIND A TJ FOR SALE YOU WILL DISCOVER JEEPS KEEP THEIR VALUE AND THEY HAVE A CULTURE OF PEOPLE THAT SHARE IN THE UNIQUE "IT'S A JEEP THING" MENTALITY. OWN ONE AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND.

Bought as a second car to haul my dog. It's been a blast. All the fun of a convertible with the height of a truck. I bought used. Haven't done any off-roading in it so can't rate the performance of the 4wd but the fun factor is A+.
