Just out of curiosity.

I once sold a guy a car in new Brunswick and he paid the shipping.

Have you considered having it shipped?.

Just curious.

Re: Trying to decide which Jeep

Yeah I am debating it. I am in Ottawa and the car is in Windsor. $340 for the plan ride 2 1/2 hrs and its most likely going to be 8 hour drive home if the weather is good. Do any of you recommend a shipping company?

No the overland was the v6, I really did want the Hemi but I am sure the v6 will do what is needed.

Re: Trying to decide which Jeep

Thanks I brought it home yesterday! 8 hour drive was enjoyable. I only wish it wasn't -25 outside so I could give it a nice hand wash I think I am going to be taking off the side steps and wind deflector in the spring.

I had sidecsteps on my liberty.
Looked OK at first but then they started corroding. Looked awful after a while.
The overland doesn't need much to look good.

Hood deflector!. ... Not sure either.

Nice truck though.

Does it have the tech package?.
Also block your license plate info. From your pics.

Re: Trying to decide which Jeep

That front deflector can save the large leading edge of that aluminum hood from a lot of stone damage.

Same for the running boards protecting the sides from a lot of stuff flung up by your tires.

Keep it or take it off, it's only a matter of your personal tastes.

Good looking vehicle!

Those sidesteps are OE. I wouldn't ditch them because of they might not hold up. We have them on our 2011 GC Overland. No corrosion or problems and I live near the beach in South Florida.
I have thought about getting mud flaps because driving in rainy conditions the wheel spray hits the step bars and they are noisy.

Re: Trying to decide which Jeep

Yeah they are oem side steps. I figured both the side steps and air deflector are most likely helping from chips.

The overland has the technology package, the adaptive cruise was great on a long drive!

Goes in on tint Monday debating either 20% or 15% for the front windows.

The LEDs are on order for the interior as well some bright pedals. I just have to figure out how to make the night time footwell brighter as they are so dim.
