From Edmonton to LA and back again!
Took the family to Disneyland from my home in Edmonton Alberta Canada. Drove the whole way in my 5.7L 2005 WK with 60,000 miles on it. The Jeep was loaded to the top with kids and suitcases. It took four days to drive down, detouring to see the Grand Canyon in Arizona and driving hwy 101 up the Oregon coast coming back. Absolutely no issues with the Jeep. It ran perfectly the whiole way. Stayed cool handled any hill with ease an with the recent upgrades of bilstein shocks, SRT springs, SRT rear sway bar and BWoody end links the corning on some of those windy road was exceptional. The rear of the jeep stayed well planted throughout and the kids were not being thrown around the back as they were in a similar situation in the past with my old 95 jeep grand cherokee. It used alot of gas however, especially weighed down as it was, but that was not a concern of mine. Really like the 5.7L hemi and it's ability to quickly pass other vehicles in all situations with ease. Great Jeep for going on long trips. I really loved seeing parts of the US that I have never been to before. Great country!
