I sold my wk and KEPT my 98XJ.

I'm with you bro.......I NEVER fell in love with my wk and am happy to be driving the XJ.

I can't explain it so don't ask LOL

Re: Finally got rid of my WK

before I got my WK, i wanted an XJ real bad.. found a good deal on my WK though and had to take it.. I actually really love my WK(could be because its my first jeep). but I always loved the XJs my friends had...I would really really like to have one as well at some point..use it for a weekend jeep and really ORT it out... someday.

....A man can dream

Re: Finally got rid of my WK

I would hate a 3.7 WK too. Hemi is the only way to go. A poorly maintained anything will drive poorly. A well maintained WK with USEFUL upgrades is actually pretty fun. I like mine now better than when it was new.

Re: Finally got rid of my WK

I agree. I have the 4.7L because I couldn't afford the Hemi upgrade and I absolutely refused to get a 3.7L. It just didn't have enough throat or "umph".

I still wish I had waited for the Hemi but it's not the worst thing in the world. I love my WK but I do miss my old XJ...granted it did have 35s..
