In the Driver's Seat of the 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4X4You've got to be a little bit spry to get into the Wrangler -- the bottom of the door sill is 26" off of the ground, at least a foot higher than your average car's entry. Once you get yourself into the driver's seat, the driving position takes a little getting used to, unless you spend a lot of time behind the wheel of a John Deere. The tilt steering column helps, but the driver's seat is decidedly low tech, a little overstuffed and bouncy. The dashboard and surrounding materials seem pretty rugged, though plasticy. If your Jeep is going to live out in the elements, you'll want to protect the interior and keep it clean to keep it from deteriorating. My test Wrangler had full doors with roll-up glass windows in front -- the first time I've seen manual window cranks in a while. The lightweight doors are easily removable for off-road excursions.
The Unlimited's wheelbase allows for a pretty roomy back seat, and a nice sized open cargo area behind the rear seat, accessible via a right-swinging rear gate that also holds the full-sized spare tire. With the soft top down, there's no secure storage area in the Wrangler beside a small locking glove compartment and console bin. I'd add an aftermarket lock box in the cargo hold first thing.
