That's what my neighbor drives. I have a '12 Black Overland 5.7L. I wonder if he wishes he had a new Grand Cherokee now. They weren't out when he bought his Acura (maybe his is a 2010).

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

My wife and I just traded in our 2010 2-door Wrangler Sport (soft-top) for a 2013 JGC Laredo. The Wrangler was a lot of fun...at first. After the first year, the fun and novelty quickly wore off. It was great for cruising around under the FL sun and going to the beach, but it just wasn't practical in any other situation. Very cramped interior, terrible fuel economy, and a VERY rough ride. As a weekend/fun vehicle, it's great...but as a DD it just wasn't practical for us.

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

I got rid of my 2010 Camaro SS/RS that I ordered brand new from the dealer when they first started making them in 09'. Only had ~23,000 miles when I sold it. The MPG was horrible in the Camaro and driving a stick as a DD was getting annoying. It was a hell of a good time though!

So far I'm loving my new black V6 2013 GC w/ wheel & nav package. It also better suited for Kansas winters!

Traded a 2012 Silverado 2500HD 4x4 Crew cab with 3600 miles for a '13 GC Overland Summit. The Chevy had 360 foot pounds of torque vs. 390 in the GC.

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

I traded in a 2012 Ford Mustang 5.0 for it.. The stang was a great car, and faster than a bat out of hell. However, for my lifestyle I knew it wasn't going to work out in the long run.

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

Silver 2007 Jeep GC, one of the best vehicles I've ever owned, only thing I had to do to it was replace the battery. Traded it with 38,000 miles on a new 2012 JGC in Black

I like my jeep too be Lordy....sub 11's would be a really really really hard loss. I traded a 2010 jeep srt8 for mine and some days I still regret it.

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

1994 Ford Escort w/ 172,000 miles. Custom installed switches to control ignition, battery disconnect, rear defroster. Many interior panels missing, seatbelt doesn't work.... it goes on and on. Needless to say, I'm excited for my JGC 5.7 limited! Three more days.
