11' limited Hemi 4x4 impressions

Its been a couple weeks since i traded my 12' Laredo 2wd POS for a 11' limited hemi 4x4 with 20k miles and i must say i really like it. The hemi v8 seems like a much smoother engine than the v6 and it doesnt bog down or strain to keep up speed like the v6 does, im currently averaging 16.6 mpg city and 22.5 highway(using mental math) with mild enthusiastic driving. Ive always disliked sunroofs in the past but i just love the panoramic sunroof. The QT2 4wd works great and i feel alot better driving in bad weather. I also like the hid headlights.
Even though i went back a year to 2011 this jeep makes up for it by being immaculate and looking brand new inside and out and it still has full factory warranties plus 3 months warranty from the dealer as it was always serviced at there,because it belonged to the dealers secretary. I happened to be there right when she traded it so i got it before it even hit the lot. They gave me a good deal on my 12' so im glad i can finally afford a limited with everything i want.

the dealer swapped my wheels and step bars over and ive already tinted the front windows, installed my srt8 pedals, bug shield and led lights. Ive got my alpine sub/amp ready to install along with a set of tow hooks. that's it for now..

Re: 11' limited Hemi 4x4 impressions

It's always funny how those that own V6's also say the power is adequate. Driving the Hemi will change anyones mind.

Re: 11' limited Hemi 4x4 impressions

...and then the very next thread will be "Hemi is underpowered". I have both, and am happy with both.

Diablo now has a tuner available for 11 & 12 Hemi which adds 30 rwhp and 35 ft.lbs of torque. You will never see any gains close on the V6. Downloading my updated tune tonight.

Absolutely, I am going to do some 0-60 times before the tune, then with the 87 performance tune, then the 93 when it is time to fill up.
