If you could do it over again?

Like the title says, if you could go back and buy your JGC again, what would you have done differently? Different color? Different options? Engine?

I would have waited for an Overland with ORAII so I could have had QDII and skids. This would have allowed me 18 for winter tires since I was planning to pick up srt reps anyways.

Re: If you could do it over again?

I would not get a black one. Not because I dont love it, I do. But I cant walk out of a mall without trying to get into 3 others that arent mine. LOL

Re: If you could do it over again?

I probably would've gone with an Overland, although I did get the Lux package on my Limited, so I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I'm ordering my '14

I live in the snow belt....I rarely consider clean outside of July and August. The other 10months it looks "slightly off clean"

Re: If you could do it over again?

If I were to do it all over again, I would get exactly the same Jeep. I got every option except the rear DVD and still don't need/want it; much prefer the pano roof.

A Summit would have been nice but they didn't come in Stone White so I am happy as I am.

Only think I can think of is adaptive cruise control but I don't think that's available on the Limited.

Re: If you could do it over again?

Totally happy with mine. I think might have gone with Mineral Gray instead of black, I really like that color. But the black looks great when clean.

Re: If you could do it over again?

Funny you should ask, I just did do it over again. I leased a 2012 WK2 QT1 for 24 mos in Aug and modded it slightly to suit my needs thinking I would buy a 2015 when lease was up but after seeing the *refresh* I went out and got a new 2013 Laredo X QT2 with Tow/20s/Nav/Sunroof and All Weather Group. I pick it up Monday! I will wait it out until Jeep comes to their senses again.

Re: If you could do it over again?

I would get a black interior, and buy a limited heated black leather steering wheel and carbon fiber from the SRT and had that installed in it in place of the orange wood. I think I might just get a 2014 now if the black interior with new brown wood looks good.
