Hi, I am shopping around for a used wrangler. I found one for sale but not local so i haven't driven it yet. it looks really nice, 1997 wrangler sport with the soft top. I am curious how difficult is it to take off the soft top and put back on. someone had said to me that it could be a pain when you have the top on and you're driving but you want to open the windows. i didn't really think of this til i was told that. when i do buy a jeep it will be my only transportation so i want to make sure i'm not making a bad choice. could someone help me out wtih this info. thanks
I've driven in a soft top in our Canadian winters, so can't be all that bad a choice as an only vehicle. With either top on, opening the windows has never been a problem for me but mine's a 2 door. The other option is to just remove the door
Removing/replacing the Top (soft or hard) is not a 2 minute job, but its not that much of a pain.
Hi, I have read a lot on line about how time consuming it is to especially to put the top back on. How about when you want to put the windows down when your driving, do they zip up and down easily. I really like the jeep i saw on line but since it's not local and i can't drive it i'm not sure what i want to do. thanks
does anyone know how many gallons a 1997 jeep wrangler sport, 6 cyl 5 speed hold and about how many miles per gallon it will get. thanks
19 gallon tank and anything between 10 and 17-18mpg, depending on driving style, modifications, how well the jeeps been maintained, when it had its last tune up... Things like that will have large impacts on mpg. Expect to see 14-15mpg. Then if its better you'll be happy. If its stock and your not lead footing it, then there is probably something wrong.
What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle
