2007 WK OVERLAND 5.7 hemi vs 2008 wrangler x unlimited

Hi guys

need some answers. I have the choice of two vehicles, both comparable for me on Insurance, purchase cost, and vehicle condition.

I am driving an older Grand Cherokee now and love the drive, spec. everything about the car - basically anybody driving either the 2007 Grand Cherokee or the 2007 Wrangler have any opinion or have found any expensive faults on their vehicles please. Difficult decision this one - fuel consumption in the real world would also be good, seema a no brainer to go for the WK. with the much higher specs. any helpful advice would be apreciated

i'm not sure about the JKs but i know the WKs have a very picky electrical system.

maybe read through the troubleshooting forums an see what comes up as common issue for the two vehicles.

Re: 2007 WK OVERLAND 5.7 hemi vs 2008 wrangler x unlimited

Well. The wks are IFS. If your used to your solid axle on your older grand it may be a factor. The pre 2012 jks are going to seem underpowered on everyday driving, but will definitely be better offload. I chose a wk because I love the way they look and can still handle offroading with a nice lift and tires.
