Hi there the wife and i are considering purchasing a 2005 wrangler renegade but we keep hearing negative points of view from people who have never owned one so i was wondering if there is anyone who can set us straight on a few small issues. predominately this jeep will be the wife's car so most of the driving will be general commuting but we want to go bush or beach when possible so the things we want to know are:

Stability on the open road good or bad?
road noise ? (jeep has a hard top and soft top)
roll over??? shit i hope not.
Any advice would be good.

Stability could be a bit better if you can swing into a JKU, but a good size price swing (I know someone selling one in the next month if you are near NC.. :) )
Also if you have driven it only with the soft top, definitely try the hard. My first one was a hardtop and I thought it was perfectly fine, my recent ride had the soft top and it was significantly louder. I don't mind but as a DD for some it might get annoying.
As above, one of the best vehicles I have ever bought!! Nothing like driving with the top and doors off!!
Good luck!
