Re: Choice between Trailhawk and Hemi Jeep GC

Don't let the V6 vs the V8 sway your decision. Depending on your driving habits the difference in mileage may be minor. Get the one you want and enjoy it.

Re: Upgrading to 2014 Limited V8

I will test drive the V6 before I buy anything. I'm curious to experience the difference between the 5 and 8 speed transmissions.

Upgrading to 2014 Limited V8

Re: I take delivery tomorrow...V6 owners need your feedback

Now that we have eased you mind about the V6 you can upgrade to 20" wheels very easy. Ebay has lots of OEM 20" stock wheels for sale. The Fotera tires are not that expensive. Good luck

Re: I take delivery tomorrow...V6 owners need your feedback

The V6 has more than enough power for regular use. I live in the Boston area and like you don't off road or tow and the V6 does the job just fine. It's only because of the Hemi lovers bashing the V6...
