'07 Chevy Tahoe Z71. 135k of relatively trouble free driving. Nice ride and it's treated me well. With one child going off to college and 16 mpg average, I'm ready for a smarller, more fuel efficient ride. Fortunately I'm in no hurry so the diesel is the flavor I'm waiting for.

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

Unless I can sell it on Craig's List first, I am trading in a 2005 Toyota Matrix for my '14 Limited. I will miss the gas mileage and ability to park in just about any small space easily, but the frustration of trying to milk passing power out of that tiny 4-cylinder is going to evaporate in the snarl of the Hemi.

Out of curiosity, how old is your son and what made him want to give up the Camaro for the Jeep?

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

2006 Nissan Frontier pickup, V6 with 170k miles. It was good for first 100k but the last 70k have been very expensive. I can't get out of the Nissan dealer for less than $1,000 every time (many times double that). I've probably spent $5-7k over last couple of years. I joke that I have a credit card dedicated to just Nissan repairs but it's true. I guess that's the nature of high mileage vehicle and foreign dealer parts.

Only gets 16-17 mpg with mostly highway driving and I drive a lot of miles 25k a year so $5,000 a year in gas bills sucks. The diesel JGC will help save me some expense on fuel. I'll miss having the pickup bed when it's time to haul stuff but I'll get a small utility trailer for that.

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

I traded in my 2011 Limited 4runner for a 13 WK2 5.7 Summit.

I've had Toyotas as far back as I can remember. My last few rides were 4runners and never thought I"d trade it for a Jeep., but there were things about the 4runner that bothered me. The main thing was the skinny tires. I had 20" rims but skinny tires. It looks weird for such a big vehicle. Also, there was so much plastic and the leather seats weren't comfortable.

I love the summit. drives so much better. no regrets.

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

I got rid of a 2010 Infiniti FX35. Fun car, but pointless. No utility and no cargo space. I now have a '14 Overland V8, awesome is an understatement.
