2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler JK Comprehensive Buyer’s Guide [Video]

Buying a Jeep can be difficult, given that there are so many options available to a buyer.

But TFL’s Tommy Mica and Nathan Adlen decided to make it easier by putting together a buyer’s guide for the 2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler JK. Their guide went through the two-door versus the four-door, hard top versus the soft top, price, options and other features.

To start off the guide, Tommy and Nathan discussed the pros and cons of the two-door versus the four-door. Nathan immediately said the four-door Limited edition is the best, citing the ability of the vehicle to tow more and to hold more passengers comfortably.

He also said that the ride feels better of the four-door, and that it’s the most popular option among buyers.

Tommy, however, said the two-door is best because of the price. For an entry-level, two-door Jeep JK, it costs $23,995 compared to the four-door Limited, which starts at $27,895.

Plus, both Tommy and Nathan agreed the turning radius on the two-door is much better than the four-door.


When it came to the hard top versus the soft top versions, the hard top seemed to be favored in colder climates like Colorado. The hard top also cuts down on wind noise that the soft top can’t seem to contain.

However, when it comes to ability to remove the soft top, that version won hands down in ease of removability.

With the Jeep JK coming in either a manual or automatic transmission, Nathan said the manual transmission is the clear winner and the one buyers should pick. The manual version costs less, is more efficient and gives it that extra “manly” feel.

The automatic transmission, however, would be better for those who drive in town a lot.
