New: From JK to WK2
Hi - I just traded my 2011 JKU for a WK2 Overland with the ORA2 package tonight. I have been doing some research and most of my Internet searches bring me here, so I decided it was time to join and stop lurking.
I loved my JKU but it was starting to age and get up there (I know, it's all relative) so I started looking at newer vehicles. I mostly do all of my off-roading during 2-3 weeks a year, when I am on photography trips in the southwest. I don't do extreme off-roading, mostly fire service roads, BLMS roads, but nothing too difficult.
I also tow an ultra-light fiberglass teardrop trailer (T@B) and the JKU worked, but since it did not have a factory tow package, it was less than stellar. The gas mileage while towing is under 10 mpg if I break 60 mph.
These plus the added safety features in the WK2 led me to my decision and I was fortunate to find a good deal.
I am really sad to loose the JKU but the WK@ is a beautiful vehicle and I think I will enjoy the advanced technology.
