Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

I have not done this yet. I will test drive the diesel this weekend though. I think THIS might be all I need to decide.

Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

My commute to work is about 15 one way. On the weekend however, I might be inclined to take a 100 mile camping trip.

Mostly though,, it will be a daily driver.

Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

Odd favor. I found a JGC I am interested in, but it is in Pineville, NC and I am in San Antonio, TX.

Is there anyone near Pineville that would be willing to kick the tires of a JGC for me?

What package adds 20" wheels?

I am looking at two 2012 JGC's, one has 20" wheels the other 18". Besides that and color, they seem the same.

Just wondering what options might one have that the other doesn't.

Thanks!

2011 Overland Creaking Suspension

Re: Replacing strut (QD2)
