Summer is just around the corner, and for some folks, that means it's convertible season. Jeep's versatile Wrangler—it's equally at home on the Rubicon Trail and the streets of West Hollywood—has always been a fabulous open-roofed option. Now it turns out Wrangler is a great lease to boot, thanks to ridiculously good residual values on Unlimited Sport and Freedom models.
