I bought my WK 'cause with a 4" lift, 34" tires and armor it can wheel on the tougher trails in Colorado and Utah while still being quite nice as a daily driver. The WK2 is too big and too limited in off-road capabilites for my uses. If my WK was wrecked, I would purchase a used WK1 or if Jeep ever comes out with a Wrangler with a real engine in it, I'd seriously consider a 4 door Wrangler.
why not get a JK from AEV w/ a 6.1 HEMI?

Re: Which 2011 WK2 would you buy! Please everyone participate!

Voted for Overland 4x4 v8 the one I likely will buy though Limited 4x4 v8 is not out of my consideration... need to weigh bit more with info about both of them.

I am rather surprised that 56 out of 136 voted for Overland 4x4 v8... mere of wish thinking or money no issue for most of them, I wonder? lol

Re: Which 2011 WK2 would you buy! Please everyone participate!

Doh! Should have worn my glasses this morning. Meant to vote for V6 4x4 Overland and not 4x2.

Still undecided really between V6 and V8 HEMI though. If only they could make the HEMI not so touchy on the very first part of the gas pedal ... at least that's how it was in the 2011 GC I test drove. Being able to go up to 500 mi in the V6 on one tank of gas sounds pretty nice too.

Re: Which 2011 WK2 would you buy! Please everyone participate!

Limited 4x4 V8 for me- luxury pkg and trailer towing. Might go with the green or white color maybe even mineral gray, frost beige seats. I just don't think that quada lift will age well at all. Seems like it will be troublesome after the warranty is over. An air suspension failure could disable the vehicle altogether and you would either be stuck with a decision to invest a great deal of $$ to fix the thing which could include sensors, air lines etc, air bladders etc. Or there may be a way to convert it to a fixed height suspension. Either way the quad lift seems great when the vehicle is new or newer but I feel due to its complexity it will be a weak link for this Jeep. IMO anyways. Will be orderlin early next year when my Edge lease expires. By then hopefully the chrome wheels and blind spot system will be available.

Re: Which 2011 WK2 would you buy! Please everyone participate!

you should do more research on the quadra-lift suspension. In fact...its closed type system...the first used on a vehicle like this. There are very few parts to fail like other open type systems. Being a closed type system....impurities arent brought into the system like with open type system. This should be one of the more reliable air type systems. The air bags are also pr0tected by springs(air springs) All of the componets are very well protected.
