Not only enough space for the dog in the back if you need somewhere to keep the dog contained but usually Jeeps get some good dog accessories, given the whole volume part, they sell enough of these for accessories to be out in volume as well.I like it a LOT. Small enough to zip around town but big enough to carry me, my wife and our disabled son, not to mention the dog in the back. Slight lift and more aggressive tires and it will do all the off road I care to do. Good mileage and room for trips to the hardware store. Also, it is cheap when compared to full size SUVs.
