Let me know if you have any suggestions for me with regards to options (to purchase or to avoid) Planning on purchasing a 2013 with the ZF Trans & 5.7L Hemi!
Well, my opinion is that if you can find something on the lot you'll get a lot better price than ordering it. I couldn't find a better deal than a couple hundred off invoice for ordering a JGC, but thousands off invoice for finding one on-lot. I paid about dealer cost on Truecar, which the dealership said they could do because they would get more inventory before xmas for selling one in Nov. Here's my opinions:
: Love it. IMO, limited is a must-have and the wife wanted the power liftgate so we went Overland. Summit leather is a winner.
: Again, if you wanna go offroading it's a must-have. But it's $3.5K for the overland since it includes the air suspension. I wanted it and got it, wife didn't need it.
: I love it, but wife probably didn't need it.
: It's nice to have the skid plates, but you give up the 20" wheels which do look better. If you want the skid plates go for it, because it's easier to have those factory and swap out to aftermarket 20" rims. I'm an aftermarket rims guy though because I like the personalized look.
Adaptive Cruise Control
: Surprisingly useful on long road trips. I never wanted it, but we ended up getting it since it was on-lot and I like it alot. It's pretty impressive and while I never have used cruise control in my other cars before, I find myself using this adaptive one quite a bit.
Definitely get at least a 2012 6-speed tranny. It's way more peppy than the 2011 5 speed.
