Another WK2?
So I think I convinced my wife that we should be a two Jeep household. So my question is should I get another Wk2 (already have a Laredo X) or a Wrangler Unlimited. I'd like to have the luxury of having a wk2 especially on longer trips, but wonder if I get a wrangler would I get more out of any off-road experience, even more so than if I got a very off-road worthy wk2. I realize this is a wk2 thread and might get more bias, but I'd like your thoughts anyway. - thanks!

I'd love to have a Wrangler to accompany my Overland.

Get a new wrangler with the 3.6!

That would be a nice looking driveway!

If I were to do it all over again and I would have bought a Rubicon and let my wife drive the Limited, I love my Laredo X but would be nice to have a wrangler too.

At the least we wouldn't have bought 2 Hemi's, she said she would have been happy with the V6. We drove a V6 as a rental, it was fine. I was happy to get back to the Hemi when we got home.

Re: Another WK2?
One of my friends who recently picked up a WK2 (nearly identical to mine) is now selling his Harley to get a new Wrangler. His rationale was that with a Wrangler he can have a safer open-air motoring option but with more utility. Jeep quality appears to be quite good as far as the WK2 line, but I wonder if that QCQA transfers to the Wrangler too?

Re: Another WK2?
That's interesting that all have recommended a wrangler in the GC thread, I didn't expect that. I think my wife would drive the Laredo-X and I would drive the Wrangler.

Sounds like you have two really nice rides and both very capable off-road. So you in good shape. My Laredo-X is just QT-1, not much else in terms of off-road, but has all other creature comforts.

I'll have to look into the QC on the wranglers. I guess that could be an issue if I'm used to the GC level.

I'll definitely be waiting for the 3.6. that should be nice.

Get an Infinity 37x - those things are sweet.

Re: Another WK2?
Sounds like a good rule to live by


Thanks, but want something very off-road capable
