I am thinking about getting a jeep wrangler

whats up guys I am almost 17 and thinking about getting a wrangler and I have some questions to ask if i would get a brand new 2 door would it drive some what smooth for me not to get a head ace every time I drive it and im not going to go offroading with it at least for now. I want one because i love the no roof but i need a truck because I dont like driving a car thats lower then everything on the road.
Thanks.

A truck? A TRUCK?
Did you just called my litlle jeep a TRUCK?
It is not a TRUCK. It's a TRACTOR! Ok?

Ok, now: where do u live? The JK model is totally confortable, anyway. On road and offroad, it has great specifications. Do not expect great speed, though. The only thing is, if you just want a convertible truck, buy one that is cheaper, no need to pay for all the specifications that makes the wrangler great offroad. Though, if you want it because it is a wrangler, then everything changes, so just go buy it.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum. There's nothing better than a Jeep. I can't guarantee that you won't get a headache from driving one. Sometimes when you have a big smile on your face for so long it could cause one!

In terms of "comfort" (which is over rated in my book) if it says "Jeep" on the side and has a soft top, it's not going to be a Cadillac. If you can't stand the lack of a "smooth," and quiet ride then get yourself a Tacoma or something.. Jeeps are about fun, and about the interesting/unique experiences you'll get while driving within the Jeep family.

Test drive on on the bumpiest nastiest road you can find.... Then decide. It ain't pretty all the time, but dang it, it's the most fun I ever had driving anything....

Well said, Tom!

I get a headache when I drive the highway for an hour or so, but I will happily take an aspirin if indicated. Worth every minute of it!

I am in my mid 40s. I have ridden in CJ's and TJ's. I wanted a Jeep for a very
long time and for one reason or another I never bought one until a few weeks
ago. I am glad I waited. The JK is the most refined jeep I have ridden in. It is my daily driver. The wind noise seems to be far less than the other Jeeps I
have ridden in. I got power windows and it is great. It seems to be a capable
vehicle off road as well and a good vehicle on road. We have been having a lot of rain so I have not had the top down too much, but I have had it down and had the doors off and I love it and am really glad I got it.
