Re: JGC RWD vs 4WD?
The question isn't should any of us get four wheel, it is should the OP get it.
I say yes because while its amazing what you can make it through with two wheel its also amazing in a bad way what you cant. Like getting stuck on wet grass on your lawn. Yes it happened. To me since I launch a boat a lot and around here the launches are often not paved and can be rough having the four wheel for that is nice. Throw in a few snows every winter and while I haven't used the four wheel drive very much for me its paid for itself many times over because I did what I otherwise could not have.
You have enough for the car and you are not talking about much extra money from there to get four wheel. Save a little longer and its yours. No matter how you slice it your capability just went up a whole bunch and on the back end you're going to get some of that back at resale. I cant imagine not getting it unless I had no use whatsoever for it and if that were the case then there are better cars for the same money.
Thats the real bottom line to me, if sensible is your priority and you then remove four wheel you're opening up your options to a whole bunch of vehicles including most minivans some of which will serve better. What the jeep is without 4 wheel is a poorly designed station wagon or an even worse minivan. Want one of those you might as well get a good one and this isnt it.
