Re: accident report on a Jeep GC

I am trying to attach pictures of my new (to me) jeep GC so let me know if they work. I dont know if I want to murder it out (since it is almost there) or add some chrome. I will look on here for pictures of both.

Thank you,
Bomhauer

Re: accident report on a Jeep GC

I know you said it has all the options a Limited with the Hemi has minus the Hemi, but that is a Laredo..I was just making sure they didn't sell it to you as a Limited if it wasn't..

Re: accident report on a Jeep GC

I just purchased a used '06 Grand Cherokee Laredo in Dark Khaki, it had one accident where it rear-ended another car at a traffic light and was repaired you couldn't tell anything had happened. At the shop my neighbor owns we put it on the lift prior to purchase and it looked like new front bumper to rear. The original owner had it garaged both at home and at the office complex, she put approx 100 miles a day roundtrip all on the highway. We checked EVERYTHING even front end and headlight alignment, PERFECT.

My '06 JGC has the 3.7 V-6, my next door neighbor has the '07 JGC Hemi package (he often tows his behind his motorhome from N.J.-Fla) and he wishes he got the V-6. He keeps his ride tuned up yet complains it never met a gas station it didn't like. We live in NW N.J. which is quite hilly with steep, winding inclines and my V-6 does the job, hell the inline six cylinder in my '98 JGC Laredo didn't disappoint me either but I never towed with it or had more than three passengers aboard though I routinely carried 8-10 80lb bags of cement mix with no trouble even coming up the nearby mountain.

Sometimes horsepower is not the answer, my '73 Roadrunner had a 318 cu in V-8 with stock Hurst pistol-grip 4 spd manual transmission yet with the correct (stock) rear differential gear plus tranny ratio I never had a problem driving over 100 mph for extended periods on the Garden State Parkway or Staten Island's West Shore Expressway late at night headed home from the Stone Pony in Asbury Park to get my girl back in time for her 1am curfew. The truth is I had 3/4's of pedal left when doing 90mph in 3rd gear, in 4th I barely touched the throttle and was doing over 100mph. The fastest I went was 135mph headed from Bayonne, N.J. just outside NYC to Wildwood and I was always tempted to pin the needle at 150mph (it had the Rally dash/gauges) I built it from the ground up including doing the engine myself as a nineteen year old and left nothing to chance though for safety I installed five point harnesses in both front seats. It's all about getting the power to the pavement, traction is key. With today's gas prices if you don't need the V-8 or Hemi why piss away money better saved or spent on other things you need, maybe circumstances will change after Jan 20 of 2013. Note: My '73 Roadrunner was great on gas compared to my buddies who all had GM 350 cu. in. engines and it routinely kicked their asses on the industrial area dragstrip we set up, I rarely raced my need for speed was satiated on the highways late at night coming home from the bus garage where I am/was a mechanic. When the time came for drag racing I let my 18 yr old girlfriend drive, I babied the car, she side-stepped the clutch at 4500 rpm and put the guys to shame, one kept on going after losing to a girl, we didn't see him for over a week he was so embarrassed.
