new jeep?

So i have been investigating a new WK for myself. I went and test drove a 2006 overland yesterday and i am in love. i would be trading in my current laredo if i ended up getting it which lets be honest would be a step up. My only problem is that its just a 2 wheel drive and i so very badly want the trail rated badge on the side of my jeep so i have been looking for one with 4 wheel drive. i may have found one, its a 2005 5.7 limited for the same price as the overland. They both are really sweet. i dont know if the dealership still has the limited or not, i find out monday. but what are your guys' thoughts on the both and which should i be more interested in??? also, the limited has quadra-drive II...i read all the 4 wheel drive systems on wikipedia and think i understand them all pretty good...but could someone maybe simplify the qdII system to me a little better? is it all wheel drive with a low range or 2 wheel drive with the ability for 4 or what? thanks!!

Re: new jeep?

all 4x4 WKs are always in AWD and 2 wheel drive jeeps are useless. you will get the same MPGs so go 4x4 so you arent driving a massive sled in the winter. this is coming from personel experience since i had a 4x2 WJ and hated it everyday.
