I found this interesting read on espn.com about the 2007 Wrangler. The author recaps his journey on the Rubicon after the review.
It has been to more places than a Magellan, seen more moments of history than a Roosevelt and had more people obsess over it than Paris Hilton. From Eisenhower to Patton and up to today’s off-road adventurers, the Jeep Wrangler (or CJ, YJ, TJ or now – JK) is arguably the most prolific symbol of the American Automotive Legacy. In one form or another, from one company or another, it’s been climbing over obstacles since 1941. You can go ahead and change the name. Or the headlights. The facts still apply: The Wrangler is simple. Smash-mouth straight. As rugged as a brown bear, as canny as a coyote and as nimble as a mountain goat.
From Mike: The article goes on to talk about the author's distaste for the 2-wheel drive Wrangler, going so far as to question its existence.

Re: 2007 Jeep Wrangler First Drive
It's not completely bad to offer Cherokee, Commander, Grand Cherokee 4x2 models but to make a wrangler 4x2 is just plain dumb.
The only good side to this i see is that a few years from now you should be able to pick up a 4x2 model used for dirt cheap because no one will want them. They will be in perfect shape (never used off road). This would be a nice platform for a complete rebuild and swap to 4x4. It's been done a thousand times in the past with Cherokees.
