2007 WK OVERLAND 5.7 hemi vs 2008 wrangler x unlimited
 
Hi guys

need some answers. I have the choice of two vehicles, both comparable for me on Insurance, purchase cost, and vehicle condition.

I am driving an older Grand Cherokee now and love the drive, spec. everything about the car - basically anybody driving either the 2007 Grand Cherokee or the 2007 Wrangler have any opinion or have found any expensive faults on their vehicles please. Difficult decision this one - fuel consumption in the real world would also be good, seema a no brainer to go for the WK. with the much higher specs. any helpful advice would be apreciated:)

i'm not sure about the JKs but i know the WKs have a very picky electrical system.

maybe read through the troubleshooting forums an see what comes up as common issue for the two vehicles.

Well. The wks are IFS. If your used to your solid axle on your older grand it may be a factor. The pre 2012 jks are going to seem underpowered on everyday driving, but will definitely be better offload. I chose a wk because I love the way they look and can still handle offroading with a nice lift and tires.
