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

2002 GMC Sierra Z71 extended cab. I absolutely loved this truck and it took everything I threw at it and laughed with not a single problem except a power window motor burning up. I primarily used it for work as I am a Builder but I decided to take on more of a General Contracting role and the pick up was not essential.

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

My 2002 Jeep GC LTD has 190k miles. Engine is rock solid. I have suffered through all the problems of the WJ Jeeps. My wait for the WK2 is over. Ordered mine last week.

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

'08 GC Overland Hemi lease expires end of Nov. 2010. Enjoyed the '08 Overland. The 2011 is my 5th Jeep GC. Ordered 2011 Overland Hemi, Black perl exterior, saddle/black interior, Tech. Pkg. Expected delivery end of Nov. or sometime in Dec.2010. Plan to (when available) order the Diablo Pedator tuner, and intall high performance air filter. Was thinking 2012 Jeep SRT8. However, the horsepower is way too much for my wife to handle. I suspect when a bit of tuning, the 2011 Hemi will produce more than acceptable increase in horsepower and performance.

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

Good thread. Nice board, very good information here.

I will be 'letting go' of my 2002 Trailblazer LTZ with 180k miles. I was rear-ended last December, and that truck has not been the same since, even though it was repaired and looks OK. With the exception of the trans replacement in that truck (at 105k), I am somewhat satisfied even though my original intent was 200k or bust.

Because I like to buy everyday drivers once per decade, I am trying to delay my Overland order as long as possible.

05 Ford F-150 FX-4 with only 45K miles. The past couple of years this thing has been in the shop as much as it's been home. The GC can't get here fast enough!!!

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

The significant other and I agreed to let go of an aging Audi A8. Just deciding on a color and lamenting not getting a Limited or Overland because neither of us wants the sunroof. Thankfully the Laredo can be equipped quite nicely to compensate.
