Re: Long term question WK2

Doesn't matter now...wife said no go on a wk2... She said its not rugged and manly like my wk looks.... Im fine with that...may have alot of plastic on the inside but its great looking and its good knowing i have the grand cherokee with the most front and rear wheel travel. thanks for the comments though...appreciate it... Sounds like wk2's are aging well.

Tbh, I sat in one, don't remember the trim model, but I didn't the looks of the dark pho wood. I liked everything else tho. 2 things, 1-you seem to love/like yours and aren't all too stoked on new interior. So since your is only 4 years old, I would keep it another few years and wait for the wk3. 2- it sounds like an altitude would suit you. It has very few chrome pieces. I'll likely trade mine in for one of those when the wk3 comes out.

LOL, you're just a troll. Go back to the WK forum.

Re: Long term question WK2

I never considered a Jeep, or any ChryCo product for that matter, because of the crappy interiors and harsh ride. Looking to replace my wife's sedan, I drove a 300 and it opened my mind. When I saw the Overland saddle-black interior I traded in my Expedition Eddie Bauer the next day.

I'm about 28k miles into it now after 13 months and I still feel the same way. It's the nicest vehicle that I've ever owned.

Re: Long term question WK2

I have a '12 Laredo with "E" & towing and is exactly what I wanted: Minimal chrome, cool cloth seats, and the fake wood is all so dark it takes a strong light to see any pattern at all.

Extras are all handled by tablets and the AUX jack.

Normal people are not aware of differences in trim atoll.

You speak the truth. Exactly my thoughts. The WK2 was Jeep's first attempt at the Landrover market segment and it was a great start but being it's first attempt they still had a little to learn. I'm really excited to see what the 2017 turns out to be. If they figure out how to increase the wheel travel a little more and offer the 4wheel monitor like land rover and able to ford 36", and make the styling more rugged, land rover better watch out. I wonder if it will be the WK3 or WL?
