Just added a 2011 Laredo to the stable...

We just picked up a new 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo... This thing looks and rides nice. Its surprisingly fast as well.

It was the Wifes turn to pick a new vehicle... she liked the GC so we went to take a look at them... I had her wanting an SRT8 version but they did not have any on the lot so we started looking at the Laredo on the Show room floor... It has all the bells and whistles one could possibly want or even need.

Sunroof, back up cam, Sirius radio, leather seats... the list goes on. I'm very impressed with the way it drives and how much power it has. Its literally a sleeper... One would not think an SUV could pull as hard as this thing does.

Anyway, just thought I would share the good news with you guys...

SPEED SAFE, NICK

Re: Just added a 2011 Laredo to the stable...

Its the 5.7L... The wife told me I could chose 1 option... but I was not allowed to chose the engine... She wanted the v6... So I chose the tow package, which automatically bumped it up to the 5.7L... I win!

SPEED SAFE, NICK

Re: Just added a 2011 Laredo to the stable...

Anyone know what the rear axle the 2011 WK come with? There is nothing about the axle on the build sheet and I cant find anything on them on the internet.

I would like to get some 4.56's installed if possible. I know its just a 2wd version but from past experience with the .76/.67 overdrives and tall tires, 4.56's tend to improve fuel economey and performance at the same time... Its just simple math.

Thanks for the help ahead of time.

SPEED SAFE, NICK
