Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

traded 2007 Tahoe LT. The Tahoe was a great truck, but I was ready for something different and the GC impressed me most when test driving. Drove the new explorer and thought that was junk.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Chevy Tahoes are awesome trucks. The g/f has one. Lovely vehicle. Also agreed on the new ford exploder. I prefer the older generation. The new ones are not my cup of tea and are lacking in off roading capability. Definitely not a consideration for me. Good on ya mate! The GC will serve you well!

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

First post, but I'm in the process on a 2012 Overland Maximum Steel/Saddle 5.7 and Off Road II. I'm a bit worried about gas mileage as I'm leaving a '08 Mini Clubman that I could easily get 40mpg driving nice and 28 being flogged out of it. That said, I'm super psyched about getting back in a 4x4.

You can realistically expect about half of that MPG.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

First post for me as well. I traded in a 2001 Chevy 2500HD Duramax for a 2012 GC Overland with the Hemi. Love it so far!

First post. I traded an 03 Cadillac Escalade Ext for an overland summit with a V8. The Escalade was fun but it was starting to show its age. Overall I'm pretty impressed with the jeep so far.

Congrats on the new ride! You'll love it! You'll have a much better time offroading in the jeep! It's also surprisingly luxurious for the price tag it holds.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

my 50k mile 02 passat w8. had a major engine overhaul done at a local vw dealer and it caught on fire less than 200 miles after I picked it up! this was in november and I'm pretty lucky to have picked up an 07 WK CRD. the other day a guy fueling up his cummins freaked out when he saw me using the yellow nozzle and I had to calm him down and reassure him that it was a diesel jeep. I'm used to that type of thing after owning that w8 for a couple years since most people ended up driving the little 1.8t around. hope this crd keeps me going for a decade or so!

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

I'm upgrading from a 96' HSE Rangie. It's been a labour of love constantly fixing it. It has been a great car though.
4.6ltr, goodyear 19' MT/R tyres on 06' Sport rims, Arnotts air springs, Bilstein shocks.

A 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 crew. Was a nice reliable ride so if the Jeep lives up to it I will be happy!
