4x4 in Florida??

Just trying to get a read on what you would do if you lived in FL and know that there is a 50/50 chance that you would be moving to the northeast within the next 3 years.

1) Would you bite the bullet now and get a 4x4 or 2) would you simply get the RWD and either make due with it up north or potentially trade it in for a 4x4 at that time??

They get the same mpgs, the 4x4 is the better choice

Re: 4x4 in Florida??

I'd go ahead and get the 4x4...you'd already be hurting your re-sale by getting a 2wd Jeep.

Re: 4x4 in Florida??

Re: 4x4 in Florida??

With all the advantages of 4x4 these days, I question why they even offer it in a 2 wheel drive anymore. Get the 4x4.
