Merry Christmas (to me) and Everyone!
Hi! First post here. Last Friday I purchased my first Jeep: new 2011 Laredo X in White Gold. It's loaded quite nicely with black leather, sunroof, 430N Navi, Tow Package, etc. I've added Mopar Splash Guards and black Tubular Side Steps. My next mod will be 20% tint, and front tow hooks.
We traded an '09 Hemi Aspen 2wd. The Aspen only weighed about 200# more, and had VVT rated at 376/401. Yes, I really feel the loss of 140 ft-lbs. However, I won't miss it at the pump. Also, with 2wd, it was downright scary in all wet weather. The new Pentastar feels quite adequate, and it's very nice to have 4x4 again.
I've already learned a lot, and will continue reading.
