Dont get the Laredo in the UK, the base model is the Predetor which comes with cloth interior and no wood trim

Most common is the LTD but to my knowledge, the upgrade packages are not available here. All WK's come with quadra trac11 and there is nothing thats 2wd

Re: Anyone riding Dueler Revo's?

Thats sweet, "The Predator" is a cool name. That sounds like they just changed the name of the laredo but its the same overall jeep. You guys also seem to get different wheel options.

Jeep should not be allowed to make any 2wd vehicles.

No Quadradrive? Thats odd, not necessarily a bad thing, i like my Q Trac II and i dont like the vehicle to think too much for me.

I've always been happy with QT2, I drove a Hemi QD2 a ton of times but dindt really notice much difference though im sure im some cases there is. I also drive a 03' Limited daily with QT2 and it works great. But I agree the 235 wheels are too small for the WK and look like crap thats why im going 245's.

So far I'm very happy with them on the WK. The only down side I notice is it doesn't handle as well as it did with the stock Wrangler SRA's.

I can feel the sidewall roll a little more in hard turns though I haven't pushed it too hard yet since the tires are still fairly new. The 245/70 has more sidewall height than the 245/65 that come stock.

lol...it's not that bad. I guess I'm making it sound way worse than it is. I can still haul ass around turns and it still handles way better than my WJ did.

Edit: not pissing on the WJ's, mine handled pretty good.

Re: Anyone riding Dueler Revo's?

they sell them in 245 65 too, I think that will be the way I go. My dad has them on his Avalanche and my brother on his ram, I drive both fairly often and they seem like a good tire from what I can tell, plus they look cool. =D
