Getting closer! Help me decide!
 
Getting closer to getting out of a lease early and if all goes well I might be in to a WK2 by the end of the month! There are 2 vehicles I'm currently torn between, both are within $200 of each other so maybe you folks could help me out here. The vehicles are pretty much the same short of 2 things..

The first one is a Natural Green Pearl (my favorite WK2 color) with black leather interior, 430N, QT1, and a sunroof. The Jeep Commander I had prior to my current lease only had QT1 and it never skipped a beat in the Michigan winter so I know what to expect there. And lastly, how hard is this color to keep clean?

Contestant number 2 is Stone White with black leather, 430N, QT2/selec-terrain, tow hooks, and slush mats. I don't necessarily have plans to do any serious off roading but I like the idea of the low range if I choose too while I'm up north camping and what not. I've also read while lurking around here that the white can look cream/off-whiteish at times, thoughts?

TLDR version: QT1, sunroof, and your favorite color or a good color with QT2?

When you go out to the parking lot to get into your ride, you're looking at the color not the drivetrain. And the sunroof rocks. I never cared for sunroofs until this one which I love.

Slush mats are an accessory. I bought mine from the parts department.

Unless the price is to die for, don't jump at either unless that's what you want.

True, the color is the first thing you see (I killed one Limited as an option because I didn't like the mineral grey), but the toys inside are what you play with, and the other one doesn't sound like it comes with any of those.

I'd hold off, if I were you, see if the "right one" comes along. if not, it wasn't meant to be (and you won't have to suffer buyer's remorse). If yes, you'll be happy you waited.

Andrew, do you have the single sun roof or a pana roof?

As for the price I get the employee pricing thanks to the father in-law so either is a decent deal. The sticker on the green one is $38430, after discount and the rebate it's at $33114 and I haven't even attempted to haggle yet:)

Yep, that would be pretty much exactly what I was looking for but can't seem locate in the metro Detroit area... The extra $1k on the Limited pushes me over my monthly limit but man would it be sweet, heh. Wish I could find a Laredo like that around me though.

Haha, I think the drive would put me over miles on my current lease!

Now that I think about it Performance Chrysler Jeep in Lincoln is owned by Baxters Auto Group and they would deliver it to you for a small fee.

Why ruin the fun of a good road trip to get to know your new Jeep? :confused:

I know, but bossk said he wouldn't drive there because of lease miles on the vehicle he's getting out of.

No need to drive there. Take the train! Best of both worlds. Rail there, new toy back.
