I went to the Infinity dealer a couple weeks ago to look at them. There's a brand new G37x in black right down my street that I see in the mornings sometimes. If I didn't want the WK2 Overland more and was OK with a car or needed a second vehicle the G37x would be at the top of my list. And I've never even ridden in one or known anyone that drives one. I like the ride height of an SUV and ease of getting in and out (and the superior snow capability of Grand Cherokee) is why I want to replace my current GC with a new one.

I meant that your WK2 is already very off-road capable.

The car is awesome...drives like a dream..fit and finish are top notch. Wife loves it as well but we just had our first child and she's been wanting a SUV and loves the JGC as well and wanted more room. The FX and QX are nice but it's a no brainer as far as value and off-road goes when it comes to the JGC.

One big difference I noticed with the FX/QX and many of the other high-end SUVs is the hump on the floor in the second row. If you ever want to fit 5 comfortably it's tough in those cars. The JGC and I'm pretty sure the BMW X5 has a very small hump which makes it a true 5 passenger car. Big difference if that's important.

My girl just traded her is250 for the new liberty. She wanted a smaller suv also in the brilliant black. I'll mostly done modding mine, now to customize hers a bit.

Re: Another WK2?

The Wrangler is a good idea, bit IMO you should be sure you want and will use that extra offroad capability more often than infrequently. One could like the notion and end up disappointed that the pavement manners, capacity, tow ability, and overall DD tendencies of the Wrangler are not quite comparable to the JGC.

YMMV, but a sports car or sports sedan would be cool especially if you both aren't hauling kids or cargo.

Re: Another WK2?

We have a '97 Wrangler Sahara with the 2011 Overland. Consider getting an older Wrangler so you don't have to worry about damaging it as much. And they are much smaller and more fun to drive. The current Wranglers are super-sized in my opinion.
