Thanks, I loved the Montero Sport, but it's tough to compare a 10 year old vehicle to a brand new one. That, and I have only had the Jeep for 24 hours now! Size wise they are very similar and it was a comfortable switch. The Jeep feels like a better build, but 10 years of beating on the MS probably has something to do with it.
I did a fair amount of mods to the Montero Sport. I fabbed a custom mesh grille, custom wheels (had to have the hubs bored out to fit), Westin side steps, bigger tires, big stereo system, trailer hitch, etc. The thing was a tank in the snow and mud and never let me down, but it needed money put into it and I love the look of the new Jeep WK2, and wanted to get back to American made.
I'm sure I will be putting my own touches on the WK2, so I went for a fairly basic model, knowing I would be upgrading the wheels/tires, stereo, etc.
