2012 Grand Jeep Cherokee or 2014 Wrangler 4 door

My WK2 just got rear ended :slap fight: and when it gets out of the shop i'm thinking of trading in for new 4 door wrangler 3 piece hard top. I live in Colorado... What does every one think? Am I being dumb or should I just keep my 2012 WK2

Same thing happened to my 2012 WK2. Perfect repair. I'm keeping mine.

Re: 2012 Grand Jeep Cherokee or 2014 Wrangler 4 door

When I bought my 14' WK2 I thought about buying a JK instead...you just have to decide what works best for you. Personally, I like the added room and comfort of the WK2, because I drive a lot of highway everyday. If I was off-roading a lot, the JK would be more practical.

I did do a RRO 2.5" lift and some 32" tires to help improve it though.

Wrangler all the way... After I pay off my 2011 WK2 I'll probably get one myself and keep the WK2 to replace the wife's car. It's like a life size toy with all the things you can do to and with it.

I would love to have both lol. Can someone tell me pros and cons between the two? With their own experiences.

Wrangle Pros:
It's fun to drive with the top off
Great off-road capability

Cons:
Poor road handling
It can be noisy although a hard top is probably better than the soft top.

Re: 2012 Grand Jeep Cherokee or 2014 Wrangler 4 door

I sold my 2007 Sahara unlimited and bought the JGC. For me, it was the right decision.

Also, remember that those hard tops on the Wrangler are heavy. I took mine off once, and only once!

Re: 2012 Grand Jeep Cherokee or 2014 Wrangler 4 door

This is like asking "should I have pizza for dinner or meatloaf?"

Totally different animals. The JGC is a refined, mid sized truck with off-road capabilities. The wrangler is rough around the edges and can go where few production trucks can go. But you're giving up a lot to get that. Namely, on-road manners. Comparitively, the wrangler handles like crap, is noisy and unrefined. But it is fun in a "roughing it" kinda way and it has a persona that is tough to resist.

I've wanted a wrangler (CJ-5/7) my whole life. It's just not practical for my life right now.
