first time buyer
I have never owned a jeep before and I like all the accessories that are out there, next april I plan to purchase a jeep wrangler sahara.
This will just be a toy, for off roading and maybe some city cruising with top off. I'm not sure if I should get a automatic or 5 speed. Any thoughts ?
I hope they keep the orange around for 2014. :)

Re: first time buyer
That's a debate that will never have a conclusion.

Here's my take on it. Short answer: 5-speed auto. Much easier to wheel when you're not having to worry about shifting gears and playing with a clutch. But some people really like having that control. So it's really personal preference. Best advice....try out both on a minor trail and see which you like better.

I have a 2011 Unlimited Rubicon with the 4-speed auto and would go with auto again if I were to buy another Wrangler.
