Looks like I may be back

Hi from Texas
I'm Searching out what will be my 8th jeep in 25 years. I keep drifting back the the GC . I've had cj,yj,xj, and tj's and had a grand wagoneer for 2 days ( I don't know what I was thinking . Now I'm on a wk2 obsession . Great info in here. I won't be wheelin this one like I did with my rubicon but I know I will want to use it to play . I really want the altitude but I am not clear on the 4x4 capabilities .
I'm sure it is good enough to play. The 8 speed transmission threads make me want to get a wrangler with a std trans. I haven't had an auto trans for 10 yrs and would buy a GC with a stick in a heart beat. BUT, it's not that way. I've beaten the dealers down on price and up on my trade, and still walked away. I'll be going back tho, I just know it. 2015 4x4 altitude , murdered out in black. Remote start,back up cam package , whatever that is.
Hopefully I'll stay out of the quad catalog.

Rumors are that the 8 spd in the Hemi [also used in diesel], is a bit better behaved than the one on the V6. The hemi version is the same ZF as used in several euro hot rods, the v6 one is licensed to mopar to build. Mopar does do the transmission control module firmware on both.

It isn't bad, with the hemi you just get smooth effortless power if you break it in per the owners manual. Going into sport mode for a few "whee" runs once the engine has a few hundred miles on it is rumored to make the 8 speed behave better--I'd have to agree.

If you get the 18 inch wheels with OR-2, it is surprisingly capable. Jeep claims Rubicon ready, but the fine print seems to neglect how much sheet metal was left out there. Forest service trails, mild stream fords, pretty much all of Moab/Green River is well within its ability.

Stick with it, took my dealer about 4 years to get me to trade older GC for '14.

Photos obligatory if you pull the trigger.
