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

I'll be trading or selling my beloved 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited when I purchase my new 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland Summit in the very recent future. I take a major hit on fuel economy, but gain some towing capacity that I'm going to need going forward. That's frankly the only reason I'm not buying another Highlander Hybrid Limited...the towing capacity. Then again, the GC Summit is oh-so-delicious.

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

I traded in a 2005 325i and a 2003 2500HD Silverado LS Duramax

In return i bought a 2011 Hemi Overland Blackberry Pearl with 16k miles certified pre-owned.

Very happy with the swap

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

I traded a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer (2WD) for a new 2012 JGC with the 5.7 Hemi. I bought the JGC two weeks ago and I'm quite pleased. The 7 year old Trailblazer gave me no problems, but is prehistoric compared to the JGC.

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

Sold my Armada - kids out of the house, so time to downsize. Not to mention that it had gotten to that point where it was just not economical to keep it on the road - repairs were eating my lunch. It was a great vehicle for hauling kids and gear. Replaced it with an Altitude version of the 2012 JGC. So far, loving the new Jeep. More luxury and more features, just less room that I don't need to pay to haul around anymore.

Traded a 2004 Lexus GX470 -- Great vehicle but highway performance and mpg poor.

Looks like we had the same rides, right down to the BFGs. My was a 2011. Only took around 7,000 miles to hate it.

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

Traded my 2003 Dodge Ram 4WD Quad Cab 8 foot bed with a Cummins on my 2012 Laredo V6. Its taking some getting used to the lack of torque but otherwise I love the Jeep.
