    I may buy a 4door Wrangler soft top soon.
    Some people have said that most of the men that drive them are homosexual.
    I find that hard to believe. I think it may be a single man's car.
    Is a Wrangler a gay man's car? I mean, is it popular in the gay community?

    Im curious so I hope I didn't offend anyone.

    The 2-door ones were certainly gay men's vehicles in the late 1980s and early to mid 1990s!

    I', not sure there are ANY gay, lesbian, or straight 'cars' Buy what you want and don't let anybody put a 'label' on your ride

    Actually, it's a truck that is prone to bounce around and flip on too tight and fast turns; therefor higher insurance premiums. Great for slow four wheeling however.

    Same observation here.

    I once rode in one on a freeway at freeway speed. Won't do that again. But for slow speed on rough roads, its just fine.

    btw, I associate the Wrangler with an individualistic, outdoorsy image regardless of sexuality.

    As long as you don't put a rainbow flag on your jeep, no one with think you are gay.

    Buy the car YOU want and don't worry what others think.

    Out here in northern California, a Jeep is certainly NOT a gay car. However, unless you want to do some rough four wheeling, I'd think carefully about getting one as a daily driver. They are hard-riding, prone to roll over, less reliable than a Japanese four wheel drive vehicle, relatively thirsty, have a relatively low top speed, the low-end torque is great for off road but the lack of power at higher RPMs makes passing difficult, and, with a sof top there will be issues of weather-tightness, security, and roll-over safety. A second cousin of mine was killed when he snuck out of the house and drove his parents' Jeep at night. He rolled it onto himself. He was only fifteen.
    Jeeps do project a cool image but have limitations. I have a Cherokee that has most of the above issues. However, I live up a three mile private road and use it to pull things out of the mud. So, it's alright but I would much rather have a Toyota Tacoma extended cab 4X4. It would be much more practical and pleasant.
    Good luck with your decision.
    Dave
