It is considered the only real successor to the 'American Legend'. All other Jeep products differ more from the original design. But what does it represents? There are the reinforced ladder frame, two rigid axles and one from the front engine coming powertrain for front and rear axle.

Just this concept should be retained. For military use it may make sense, but for normal use? This is exactly what try the brochures, in order to sell the Wrangler, to give an answer. It's pure nature, on which the Jeep is projected. In broadband and remembering cinemascope. As so one could conquer nature. To this the elevations grow slowly, stones, for which a ever so slowly creep SUV must have giant wheels.

How to develop further such a 'legend'? In any case carefully, which is meant especially for the front with the seven vertical slots. Otherwise one get for little money the convertible version, because the strong frame makes a contributing to the reinforcement roof unnecessary. The changes to the body can be denoted as a cosmetic matter. There the spare wheel moved from the back side to the rear and there are sometimes no doors, then half, or with window- and also with door frame. In between, there is a series with a lot of displays scattered all over the dashboard.

The rigid axles in the chassis are now (2007) furnished with coil springs and steering control. The wheel is now switchable while driving. Shall remain as the biggest step in development: the modifications of the engine, which changes from the SV- to OHC -engine and provides two and a half times as much power as in the early years. This is complemented by a six-cylinder, which opens for the Jeep another domain of this type of vehicles, to say the great coaches. It will be interesting when also a diesel engine arrives.
