Re: 4x4 or 4x2 HA?

Id say 4x4, only cause u cant get a hemi on a 4x2 any more. Cant configure that setup on jeep.com.

Ive taken mine off roading before on a couple of trails before and had no issues. Granted i bought some AT tires. Only place u wont see me is around mud. You dont need a 4x4 to go off roading long as u know how to drive, maybe sand and mud u do. Thinking about getting lockers.

Whatever u do dont get a 4x4 v6��

That's a question only you can answer. Some folks are like, "phsh..." regarding the shifter/recall and others are more concerned. Being that you are aware of the circumstances, at least you can consider if you want to work with it or not.

Given the "stop sale" on MY2015 new sales at present, considering a 2016 or even 2017, depending on your buying time frame is also something to factor in if you like any of the added features, etc.

Furthering this line of thought, it is worth noting that in 2016 the v6 gets a few more ponies and about 15% more torque. If you were thinking about a v6, then that extra power may be attractive. The 2016's also got an updated touchscreen radio that is faster and more configurable (no carplay yet though). And there are the 75th anniversary models, which in my biased opinion look really good. With the 2017 order banks opening tomorrow, discounts on 2016's will likely start happening in the next month or so.

i found a 15 HA w/ v8 with 3k miles for under 45 so i was in debate as to that or 16 HA w/v6 for a couple thousand more.

I would go the v8. The new v6 has more oomph, but not like the v8. The mileage is a little worse, but obly a little. I bought a 2016 with the v8 and have zero regrets.

Re: 4x4 or 4x2 HA?

I will voice my opinion since I recently picked up a 2wd 2011 on a deal that I could not pass up. Do I regret not buying a 4wd? not yet. But I have not went thru a winter yet. Do I wish it was a 4wd for the same price I paid, of course. If I lived anywhere South I would probably say the RWD is sufficient...


I average 24mpg in the city & 26 on the hwy BTW!

Theoretially possible if you do a straight 55 through the city and ignore all signs, traffic lights, pohleese, and make judicious use of sidewalk off-roading.

Yeah it's impossible to average 24 in the city. Especially in a 2011. Let the new wear off then your calculations will be more accurate....
