Buying affordable car insurance for a Jeep Wrangler in Ohio is usually pretty straightforward, but it depends on an enormous amount of factors such as how you use your Wrangler, the likelihood of vehicle theft, and any prior driving offenses you have. Drivers in Ohio will pay around $742 a year to insure their Wrangler, but that amount is an approximation based upon a 50-year-old single female driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $100 deductibles.
There’s a good chance you’re not a 50-year-old female, you might be married instead of single, or maybe you want different physical damage deductibles. Not everyone needs the same coverages, so the way we recommend to find cheap car insurance rates for your Jeep is to compare rates from as many companies as possible. It only takes a couple of minutes and you will receive prices from the cheapest companies that offer coverage in Ohio.
Your vehicle’s trim level will influence the annual cost of coverage, so the price you pay to insure a Wrangler Sport 4WD 2-Dr model will be $192 less than the price to insure the more well-appointed Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4WD 4-Dr version, as shown in the table below.

How careless driving impacts insurance rates
The obvious way to obtain low insurance premiums in Cincinnati for a Wrangler is to drive cautiously and not get tickets or have accidents. The diagram below highlights how traffic violations and at-fault claims influence auto insurance costs for different insured age categories. The rates are based on a single male driver, full coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.
In the previous chart, the average cost of auto insurance in Cincinnati per year with a clean driving record and no accidents is $1,231. Factor in one speeding ticket and the average cost jumps to $1,392, an increase of $161 each year. Now add in one accident along with the one speeding ticket and the 12-month cost of insurance for a Jeep Wrangler goes up to an average of $1,825. That’s an increase of $594, or $50 per month, just for not keeping your driving record clean!
Cost difference between full coverage and liability
Reducing premiums for insurance is the goal of the majority of vehicle owners, and an easy way to find cheaper insurance for a Jeep Wrangler is to not insure for full coverage. The information below illustrates the comparison of premium costs with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. Data assumes a clean driving record, no claims, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.
If averaged for all ages, comp and collision coverage costs an additional $1,074 per year more than insuring for liability only. At some point, every insured wonders when is it safe to stop buying full coverage. There is no set guideline to eliminate full coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of coverage is more than about 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s say your vehicle’s book value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $3,000 after you pay the deductible. If it’s costing in excess of $300 annually for full coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.
There are some cases where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good plan. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.
How to find budget-friendly insurance for a Jeep Wrangler
The list below summarizes some of the recommended money-saving solutions that can help Cincinnati drivers find lower-cost coverage.
- Speeding tickets and other violations increase rates
- Clean up your credit

- Increase deductibles to save money
- Avoid having at-fault accidents
- Drive safe vehicles
- Shop around for cheaper prices often
The last suggestion is remarkably necessary, as we stressed in this piece. Insurance rates in Cincinnati adjust often, so drivers shouldn’t be reluctant to buy a policy from a new company if a more affordable rate is found.
Having a favorite company is great, but we do not recommend it if that devotion results in you overpaying a lot of money every month. It takes less than five minutes to compare rates to find cheaper insurance for a Jeep Wrangler.
