Hello, KJ owner looking to re-up

I used to post a lot at jeepsunlimited.com, I have a 2002 KJ I bought new that's served me well, still have it at 125,000 miles. But since my wife crashed her van last year she's taken possession of my Jeep so I'm on the prowl for something new.

My brother had a '93 ZJ and I just helped him score a very nice used 06 WK at a great price, so I've decided the WK will be perfect for what I need (still some offroading, luxury, performance, and towing as I like to race sports cars and could really use a tow vehicle, the KJ was less than ideal for towing).

I'm currently scouring the internet for a late WK 5.7 Overland (though I would settle for a well-optioned Limited) and also hoping to find a slightly used WK2 at the upper end of my price range. I'm probably not going to stretch to the $50k upper limits of a new WK2 Overland Summit, as much as I want it.

I'm definitely going to be lurking and reading up on the WK2 to see if I want to spend the extra money. I've got the cash to spend but I've got to be wise about it as I'm trying to start my own company and I need to be smart with my resources.

Re: Hello, KJ owner looking to re-up

I have an update, I found a black 2009 WK Hemi Overland for a really great price and jumped on it.

I really really like the WK2 and I see myself moving on in a few years, but for now I am really jazzed about the WK.

In other news I was able to save my old KJ from the scrap heap (I drove it for 9 years and maintained it well but my wife has had it for a year and beats the tar out of it) and it's my wife's car for good now...

I'm sure this is in the FAQ as it's got to be the stereotypical first question on a Jeep forum, but I'm gonna need tires soon, so what's the biggest I can fit without rubbing or a lift on the stock 18" rims? Willing to do pinch weld banging if needed.

I'll post some pics soon, I just need some wrench time to fix some minor niggles that are annoying me.

Re: Hello, KJ owner looking to re-up

What year is the WK? I can tell by the OEM projectors it's at least an 08'.
