Yeah, we've already looked/driven everything else, we're back at the jeep. In the end I may very well go with the Hemi as it's not that much in price difference, probably better for resale, and more fun for me. I guess I try to be practical, i.e. higher mpg, but usually end up not being practical.

I have a similar problem - not with 4x2 and 4x4, a Jeep must have 4x4 ;-). My problem is 3.6l Limited with front parking sensors and towing Hooks imported from Afrika oder a US 3.6l Overland import with Air Suspension. Well, the decision would be easy if there was not the price difference, 10'000$ more for the Overland.

Re: 4X2 vs 4X4 Overland v6 vs v8 prices

i would say go to jeep.com and look at the different models. i did a lot of research before we purchased ours. i first looked at all crossover types, since my wife did not want a full size suv. based on that the jeep won hands down, the ford edge was close but i could not get over the front wheel drive. once we decided the jeep we made a list of needs and wants. we could get all of the needs with the x. the rest were all add-on options. we do hace the voice control for the uconnect but it does not work with the Ipod, by design, it should work with the 730 but from what i am reading it doesn't. wife did not want a sunroof, and we had air conditioned seats in her expedition, that she never used. as far as limited slip goes it is great for a 4X2 but the 4X4 is all wheel drive so it is not needed. i would really suggest getting to know the jeep brand as if you were going to be a salesman. then you know when to walk off of a lot, like we did not once but twice. also know the deals that are out there. the dealer gave up all their kick back and gave us 500.00 from some GA based insurance company. they also told us about an additional 500.00 off for active duty/prior duty military, just needed my dd-214. i was also honest with them and told them i was shopping more than 7 dealers. the recent snow storm that closed atlanta also helped as they have to move so many units a month. they were willing to just move it to help get the numbers.
