Re: Should I buy another WK2?
If you are a truck guy, the raptor looks like a fine purchase. Anyone who really thinks it can preform like a dedicated baja racer is going to be disappointed, the other 99% are probably pretty happy. While trying to decide what to do after I get the buyout, I have toyed with the idea of the raptor or the tundra...I am just not a truck guy. But a nice vehicle none the less. If you want true 4x4 capability, in a medium size platform, for my price range, its pretty much the wk2 or the lr4 (at 10k + more money!). Finding out my dealer has 1-2 more overlands being bought back because of QL is a bit depressing. I still think I am an outlier, but it does make we wonder....the threads about the 2014 diesel and 8 spd are very very Compelling!!! I would have bought a diesel if either LR or Jeep had one last year...although knowing LR, I can see them offering it as some sort of obscenely overpriced option....
I had a
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
