Sounds like you got a great deal. Congratulations!I’m a big function-over-form guy, so; having driven both I went V6 and am very pleased. It’s got more power then I’ll ever need. Acceleration is fantastic, works great with the automatic, and Sport Mode is stellar.
I didn’t want a moonroof and prefer cloth to leather, so I found a brand new 2018 Laredo “E” with the All-Weather Trail Rated package, so it’s got the heated stuff, skid plates, tow hooks, remote start, etc.
This gave me most everything I wanted, without paying for stuff I didn’t care for. The only things I missed were an auto-dim rearview mirror, cargo cover shade, and the HID lighting. I easily installed a Gentex auto-dim mirror with Homelink and picked up a cargo cover locally. Lighting was an easy DIY upgrade with superb results, plus I added larger tires.
My Jeep was less than $28k and all my upgrades still have it at about $30k. I’m very happy.
Oh, I also have some neoprene Wet Okole seat covers being made. This will make it perfect.
Good luck with your decision.
