Re: What do people upgrade to from the SRT Jeep?

I promise you parts of Michigan are doing 100x better than your dead Genesee County UAW enclave. Your view is clearly distorted. My folks live in Rochester Hills, where Range Rovers and SRT-8s are a...

What do people upgrade to from the SRT Jeep?

I see a lot of very lightly used SRT Jeeps for sale in the Metro Detroit and Chicago area. I was wondering what (you think) guys are jumping into when they leave SRT. I'd guess perhaps the new Tahoe,...

Re: 2012 vs 2014 WK2

Re: So. I want a new bumper on my brand new '14 Overland

I've dabbled in dealer auctions and was under the impression the depth of a re spray is never going to match factory, thus why those paint detectors at auction work to sniff out prior repairs.

Purchasing a '14 Overland w/ black exterior, and just browsing cars.com it seems like 99% of the black exterior Overlands have black interior.

Re: 2014 fully loaded limited or overland?

Options tend to hold less of their value when it comes time to sell. And you won't confuse would-be buyers. Go for the Overland.

Re: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY GROUP (ADG) any reason to get it? Lower insurance rate?

Worth every penny? Please explain.

Further, is this option that in demand that dealers want their inventory with it? At first impression it seems like an "annoying" $1500 option.
