Idk what Wrangler to get?!

I'm currently looking to purchase my first Wrangler, I plan on taking it offroading & mudding but will also use it to go to work & school. I don't care much for mpg just wanna know which Wrangler y'all think will be best ie hardtop/soft top, 2 door/4 door, color, which whelks & if I should get manual or automatic.

Thats only a question you can answer, sorry.
Everyone here is going to have a different opinion as to what to purchase. You are going to have to look at your financial situation, and find how much you are willing to spend.
Then theres get an older one, a newer one. and so one. Any jeep you purchase can be transformed into what you want out of it.

Just look around, see if you can get into a local club, ride in a few. and take it from there.

I'm new to Jeeps.

Here are my thoughts on tops:

I like the soft top because I can throw my top down anywhere and put it back up anywhere. If I go to work on a sunny morning, but it starts to rain mid-day I'm all set because my top is always with me. The soft top isn't as convenient as the hard top when it comes to storage though - for example, the plastic part cannot be opened like the glass window on a hard top and a soft top looks like crap (I think) long before a hard top will look bad. Soft tops aren't secure either as a window can just zip off allowing anyone to get inside.

Despite the disadvantages of a soft top the few advantages sold me on them.

That all said, what is nice about Jeep is that it's the legos of the vehicle world and you can always buy a different top if the one you have doesn't suit you.

Why does everyone ask this? How can we possibly answer what you want? Just do some research on each model and figure out what you need/want.

It's not about knowledge at all. It's all personal preference. It's like asking "what do I want for lunch" How are we supposed to know?

How is this even possible? A non 4x4 Wrangler?


Budget will dictate which Wrangler you can get. The other big factor is how much off roading you plan to do and what kind. If you're going to do light-moderate stuff, something with a 30-35 axle set up might be fine. Want to do a little more? Start looking at models with 44 rear ends. If you know you're going to build it up and want lockers, etc, maybe a Rubi is for you.
