4wd vs 2wd
anyone test driven both on comparable GC to know if you give up ride quality with 4wd vs 2wd?

Re: 4wd vs 2wd
I've driven all combinations and no, you don't give up any ride quality with 4wd.

2wd Jeeps should be illegal.

They don't ride any differently... and with 4wd, you can maintain your status as a man. :)

Re: 4wd vs 2wd
This is my first jeep and first 4x4. They put me in an overland 4x2 until mine came in and let me tell u I will never get a 2wd again. In the rain I use to fishtail and the traction control would kick in and cut power. My 4x4 overland just moves forward! Rain, hill, no problem. I am so impressed with the traction that my overland has! There is no comparison. I love flooring it when it is wet and leave everyone behind. The security of traction is unreal. There was a tiny bit more compliance in ride between the 2wd.

Re: 4wd vs 2wd
They are "both" 4 wheel independent suspension. There should be no perceptible ride difference. Gone are the days when a 4 wheel drive grand Cherokee was a solid front axle and would ride a little stiffer.
