Very nice! Did you look at the new Wagoneer (no longer a Jeep LOL) when you bought this? Just curious how it compares, it's been getting good reviews. That Hemi is nice, it moves along nicely [emoticon]


My wife has a Expedition MAX that will likely be replaced by a Wagoneer. That’s the main reason I didn’t choose it. I don’t want two huge SUVs in the family.

And honestly that night even be tough after driving this. I can’t get the same equipment in a Wagoneer, and to get the same level in a Grand Wagoneer it’s going to be $40k more than I spent on this.

The Trail Hawk and the Overland are still “trail rated”. Other than snow and an occasional forest service road, this will be a pavement queen. It drives much better without the off road options.

The Grand Wagoneer is north of $100k...

So the Grand Cherokee is smaller than the Wagoneer? Hard to tell from the pics. Makes sense, no need for 2 battlewagons...

Yes the GJC L is a stretched GC. Similar size as a Durango (Not sure if they share platforms or not)
The Grand Waggoneer is a full size suv.

Not feeling this one with the white B, C and D pillars and a black roof. Makes those pillars look like they're not attached to anything.
