07 Wk Limited 41xxx. 4.7L fully loaded trail rated 4x4. QDII

Is 12.3k worth it? (Through my dealer.)

Or is there something I need to look out for with the 4.7 mechanically? I know alot about the 3.7L, but don't know much about the 4.7.. Thanks. TRANS also?

4.7 has been around for years... its a classic chrysler motor, as in its been around a couple decades. mine has 105k on it and with basic maintenance has been fine. i have a 07.5 laredo, 4.7, qt2.

all I can say is we have 130 k on the commander with little problems . We had to replace the water pump and evaporator last summer. Other then that she has run like a champ!

Great engine plenty of power and good low end tourqe, takes well to minor mods, ie. intake exhaust, and tuner.

Well now its a toss up haha. I can get this 07 wk for 12.3 or a 2014 Mazdaspeed 3 for ~19 fully loaded.

So best of both worlds or 2 lifted wk's. Got some thinking to do.

trade in your 06... try to get that 07 4.7L limited for as little as you can.. and buy the mazda..
NOW THATS the best of both worlds. :lol:

seriously though, that 07 limited is a great deal. i love my 08 4.7L. I got mine with 28K on it.. laredo.. for like 17K..which is pretty good.. so 12-13K for a limited with 20K more is a nice price.

if the 06 is paid off and lifted with some nice extras.. maybe just take a few of the goodies.. you would want on the 07 off.. trade them the lifted 06 and see if they give you the stock 07 limited real cheap. then lift that. and try to get the mazda as low as you can afford.

Thats a good point, but the trade in value for mine is 4k. Ugh.. shafted on that. I can buy the jeep and sell my 06 for about 7500 (kbb). Put a lil money down on that and mod it to my liking with about 4g. Or put that 4g down on a speed3. Remember I also have a 00 xj aswell.

OR like you said pay off the 07 and buy a speed later on. :) that may be nice.

haha.. well i do love XJs.. i guess its just preference.. if i had a really nicely modded 00 XJ.. id go with the mazda and the XJ. (but im partial to XJs) always wanted a 98-01 XJ. maybe someday haha

I will say ...if i had an 00 XJ, a 07 WK 4.7L limited, a 06 WK 3.7L, and the mazda.. that 06 would be the first to go in a heartbeat. i'd want the mazda for DD.. and the weekend warrior would be a really hard choice on the XJ or the WK4.7L id probably go XJ though. i just like em too much :lol:

that's cheap.. In houston the jeep would run 16-19k easy.. The 4.7 is great just had my wj rebuilt she had 250k on her

Well, I took it for a test drive today. It runs awesome! Only one thing, when the steering wheel is at full lock right the right wheel makes a clicking noise. Sounds like a CV joint. I'll keep you guys updated, but for the most part I've decided to keep my 06 and buy this 07. :) Couldn't drag myself down to buy an import.
