Bought a WK2 thanks to JeepGarage

Well, thanks to JeepGarage and all the incredible information and feedback here, I pulled the trigger (finally) on a 2011 JGC Limited. I wanted a Laredo 4x4 X-Package with the OffRoad-1 and a V6, but this Hemi Limited was at such an unbelievably aggressive price ($38k) it did me in; I wanted no regrets if I was dropping big coins on a Jeep so there was no room to "settle for something" and regret it later.

Aside from the sunroof, which I did not want and still don't want, everything else was good. I ended up liking the 20" wheels too because they look good on any color; I can always up-size the rubber or sell them off if I need serious off-road use but I don't foresee that. After the paperwork was signed, the sales people admitted to me that they were not selling this Limited because it had neither Nav nor the Technology package with heated&vented seats and power tailgate (win for me...I didn't want all that stuff). A major win for me is that it had a lot of "test" drive miles on it already and people passed it over for other Limited and Overland units. Let's just say I'm sure the rings were seated quite well already (and NO Hemi "tick" at all) but I'll still follow through with a normal moderate break-in. The dealer was really happy to get this off their aged inventory so they could order another optioned the way most of their customers like and I was more than happy to oblige.


A full review will follow after I get some seat time, but right now I have absolutely no remorse, even with the Hemi based on all of the owner feedback I read.

Here's a quick pic but I'll do some more professional looking ones at another time. Thanks again for all of the forum participation because I may have been in something else by now without you guys.

Re: Bought a WK2 thanks to JeepGarage

Nice Ride! I too wish I didn't have to have a sunroof (I personally don't care for them), but the saddle interior was calling my name.
