Buying a Wrangler isn't a decision based on a strong form of logic. It comes from another place; the other part of our body that has a say in these kinds of decisions. You’re looking at one because you want it, not because it makes sense from a practical or sensible point of view.
The good news is the JL Wrangler is much improved over the JK, especially the interior, infotainment and general refinement. For those that can live with the safety issues, there is a lot here to like.
