Jeeps are one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road. Not only are they very customizable, they are capable off road, and relatively easy to drive.

“Being able to go where I want to go, whenever I want to go,” Jeep owner Keegan Reed said.

According to USA Today, the Jeep Wrangler is the cheapest vehicle to insure in the United States. With insurance rates for teenage drivers being the highest of any other category, this makes it a very logical vehicle for teens.

Additionally, their reliable engine and drivetrain makes it very easy to repair and locate parts for, adding to that, according to Jalopnik.com, the Jeep Wrangler is the easiest vehicle to work on.

“The way they are set up makes it super simple to work on, and makes it possible to work on them at home,”  Jeep enthusiast Jeff Hepworth said.

Due to its timeless body-on-frame set up, with solid axles front and rear, all parts are easily accessible and upgradeable. DigitalTrends.com, a non-Jeep related site, ranks the Jeep Wrangler in the top 10 best cars to modify. People who do not even work on or drive Jeeps, recognize their merit in the custom world.

“It’s cool to be able to just bolt on accessories and upgrades at home,” Jeep driver Jake Weber said.

The Jeep Wrangler is a vehicle that is relatively inexpensive to buy, and ranked by Kelly Blue Book as having one of the 5 best resale values of any vehicle. Easy to maintain and insure, and it has one of the highest NHTSA safety ratings, and is ranked one of the most comfortable off road vehicles.

“It’s the best vehicle you can possibly own. They’re reliable, they hold their value better than any vehicle out there,”  Jeep owner Mr. Borup said.

Not only do many of the drivers rave about the experience and community associated with driving a Jeep, but when compared to other vehicles, the Jeep Wrangler excels in capability, safety, financial benefits, and more.

Since they were first produced for the public in 1945, Jeeps have been a best selling vehicle in the US and beyond.
