i know somebody who has a wrangler unlimited and had the standard wrangler prior. They said that it was apparant driving the unlimited it fealt more like a truck and less like a jeep. It appeared more stable, but was more jarring. this is one owners opinion, this person loves his jeep and loved the one he had prior. I wonder if this new jeep getting longer if it will still have that same feel?

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

I would imagine the backseat to be way more comfortable considering its not directly over the rear axle. The longer wheel base should make it a smoother ride. The interior looks nice to, this is a pretty cool reincarnation. You can actually fit passengers and cargo.

I like it! I miss my old Wrangler, but I do not miss all the rusting hinges the Wranglers are knows for. I hope they resolve that issue and they need to throw a better engine than that 205hp 6.

Id like to see what the towing specs are and how those new removable panels work.

The inline 6 is a proven strong engine with a boat load of TQ at low rpm. Here is my old wrangler:

Toughen up, people! Jeeps aren't supposed to be comfy or pretty! They're supposed to get you from A to B-- the FUN way

I love our Jeep. I suppose it would be nice to have power steering....ha ha....but I love it anyway.

That looks so cool, I am sure not cumfy... but like Alison said ... not really going to be. Even in any jeep, the back seat isn't really all that spacious. Maybe in the new jeep, like the Comando or Loreado (sp) but i think that looks nice!

Bikes can be replaced...people can't...ride safe!!

Yes, I think if I were going to get another Jeep, I would go Commando, too.

Exactly. Jeeps aren't supposed to be comfy soccermommy SUV's.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Why didnt they just design teh Commando to have a removable top? Leave teh Wranglers as the last bastian of old fashion utility vehicle. No "luxury" crap like leather, power seats, automatic tranny... Wranglers are the last of teh truck/suv's to mainly be manual transmission equipped vehicles and thats declining also. If you need fucking 4 drs and 4wd there are PLENTY of other suv's out there. Wranglers are meant for playing in dirt/mud/sand/snow/rocks.

There was a company down south that has been doing custom jeeps for a while. You could get a four door or a six door and they even offered both a hard or soft top for your conversion. And now they make one that looks like a truck.

Just bought a 05 unlimited and it really doesn't feel like our 95 one...+ they should go back to the older "classic" style dashboard like the older CJ's.
Also, there is not many aftermarket parts availlable yet...those new jeeps will look like beasts once well modifed!!
