yeah...tough choice. I would say take the v8 and leather/sunroof over the 2009 V6 base. I would try to find a 2008-2010 4.7 V8 if it were me

Reading my mind.. so x2 w/ what Scotty said. The 08 v8 4.7l has 305hp compared to 235hp in the 07... plus nicer interior and refreshed front fascia. Keep looking, good things come to those who wait.

Yeah, if I could wait any longer I would. I haven't had a car in 6 months, and have had very limited access to one for 2 months. My wife and I are split up so I had to move back in with my mom, who luckly live 2 miles from the school I teach at so I can bike to work. I am also a professional photographer, and I haven't been able to shoot for 2 months because I have no way to get to the shoot.

Re: Please Help me Pick a Jeep ! 2007 or 2009

I just bought 06 with the Hemi. So glad I got the V8 over the V6. Plus the QDII is awesome. I say get the 07 for the nice upgrades. You will feel the V6 and base features will leave more to be desired. I've learned not to settle for a car and to wait and find what you really want.

IMHO, I prefer the 05-07 over the 08+ models. I love the boxy look like the older Cherokee. The 08+ rounds off some of the clean-straight lines found on the older WK. That is just one man's opinion. They are both nice Jeeps and the price is great.

I bought my 06 fully loaded Limited with QDII and Hemi with 68k for $14,800 taxes included.

Just saw they are 4x2 models. Will you ever need a 4wd capable car?
