Up for review this week is the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara two door 4×4 — now, that is a mouthful. This will be one tough vehicle for me to review — I know nothing about Jeeps, and admitting that is half the battle. I know a little about the Jeep brand and I can review a Grand Cherokee (and have) because it is similar to other SUVs on the road, but a Wrangler is an entirely different animal.

I rarely get price sheets for vehicles so my first task is usually heading to the manufacturer’s website to dig up the price and option lists for the vehicle I’m driving.

Well, that turned into a Jeep adventure: you see, the page is pretty nice with images flashing by, but what do you know — I had no idea the windscreen flipped down (well, I had a distant recollection but that is all); I knew the doors came off, but take a browse around the website and you discover that you can pretty much disassemble this vehicle in your driveway.

Jeep aficionados are probably laughing at me right now but that’s fine: my specialty is more along the lines of high horsepower, curve-hugging sports cars, and only so much information can fit into my tiny head.

The base model Wrangler starts at $19,995, my tester is a Sahara model which starts at $26,995, my tester has a few options such as seat mounted side impact airbags ($400), Dual Top Group ($675) and SIRIUS Satellite Radio ($250) bringing the price to just under $30,000 after Air Tax and Freight / PDI.

Unfortunately even though my tester is equipped with a removable hard top and a soft top, I have no place to put the hard top so it will be staying on the vehicle all week.

I also don’t plan on any off-roading let alone mudding or rock climbing, and the rubicon trail is a little far from my house, so Jeep fans may be a little disappointed in my city driving review, but you gotta work with what you have.
