Years ago, I fell hard for the Wrangler Jeep series. Like a Michael Kors handbag, my love for it never died, it would just mellow out for a little while until I saw the new line.
They’re sleek, sporty, sexy #yessexy and their drivers always look like they are having a blast behind the wheel.
It’s the only 4X4 convertible on the market with several models to choose from –
- Hard Rock
Each model offers many variations –
- Two doors or four
- Soft top or hard
- Unlimited or regular
- Automatic or standard
Once you make your selection you can literally “build your own.”
As for me – it really doesn’t matter much. I love them all #heartbeat
COLLAR US FLATTERED –
– when our new friends at Rick Hendrick (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Fiat) dealership of North Charleston invited Groovy Goldendoodles™ to experience a 2016 4 door “soft top” Rubicon for a few days…
Living here in Charleston is the perfect place for a Wrangler Jeep. We have more than our share of sunny days throughout the year to fold back the top, unzip the sides and roll up the rear.
The sweet smell of salt water in the air, the beautiful warm breeze on the back of your neck, and those breathtaking blue skies above – would make driving around town (in this car) a joy and never a hassle.
The spacious 4 door model gave us all the room we needed. Jaxson and Harley were quite comfy as soon as they hopped in…
When Jaxson popped his head out of the open roof top – I was happy I had his Click It Harness by Sleepy Pod with me. #daredevildoodle…
RUGGED YET REFINED INTERIOR –
I was pleasantly surprised with the ample storage space. I also noticed there was no excessive noise with the soft top nor any vibration. This was one of my fears. #notanymore
Love, love, LOVE that everything I needed to touch, push or turn was located directly in front of me. Nothing to look for or operate on the door panels…
…which I personally prefer AND it makes sense since the doors come completely off – if that’s how you want to roll. #doonbuggydoodles
I liked the grip and feel of the leather wrapped steering wheel.
The center console has two deep compartments and it locks!
It’s also Jaxson’s resting spot before take off…
Alpine sound system built into the row bar above allowed Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire to come in strong and clear with the top off.#signedsealeddeliveredImyours
AN IMPRESSIVE EXTERIOR –
Perhaps as an Army wife for more than two decades, I’ve developed a soft spot in my heart for this vehicle.
Whatever the reason, I find the exterior design and lines of all the models to be “clean, mean AND lean”…
Removing and replacing the top and sides are easy and very “manageable” for a woman with two doodles…
The Boys loved having the sides open especially at a fast food drive thru.
I mean really – who wouldn’t give these two free ice cream?…
UNDER THE HOOD –
When it comes to traveling – I’ve got this need for speed. #okayIdrivefast
The Rubicon satisfied my needs.

We took the Rubicon on a mini overnight adventure. Plenty of trunk space for a cooler, computers, overnight bags for two AND Doodle luggage!
2.5 hours on the road headed to Hilton Head Island felt like 45 minutes. Harley slept, and Jaxson kept his face pointed towards the breeze.
OUR RUBICON DAYS-
My Rubicon experience exceeded my expectations!
I found the Jeep to be –
- pet safe
- capable for off and on road adventures
- stylish AND spacious
- fuel efficient
- easy to handle
- fun to drive
I believe the Boys already miss it. After all, the current Doodle-mobile doesn’t have zip out side windows 🙁
Many thanks to Tony Rodriguez, Dennis Pierce and all the staff at Rick Hendrick Jeep.
If you live in or near Charleston and you’re looking for a new car, you can’t go wrong with our new friends. Tell em “the Boys” sent you!
Have a Doodle*tastic week ❤️
