When I saw how much the late models are, compared to new, and that people lift them and do other stuff to them, and maybe even break them, I descided I might as well go NEW. That way I know it's 100% Stock and also has a warranty of some kind.
I'd like it to be able to haul stuff. Hit some trails. My current car is a 2006 Chevy Cobalt SS/SC. (Coupe) It has very little ground clearance and I'm afraid to take it off the pavement. I may keep the Cobalt for To/From work, and Daily driving. Then use the Jeep on the weekends. I will eventually be moving, so I'd like to have the room to pack stuff in it. So that has me leaning towards the Unlimited. That and when I purchased my 42" Insignia TV, I could barly fit it into my Cobalt. I have a trailer hitch bike rack for my Mt Bike, and so I'd want one with a hitch reciever so that I could do that. Trails would be fun though. Id love to try it! Also, should I move to Wisconsin in a year or so, it would be good to use for the move itself, and better in the snow then my low-to-the-ground-push-the-snow-in-front-of-it-and-get-stuck-cobalt. 4 Wheel Drive would be helpful... Ooo espessly if I put chains on it in the snow. But I may never move north though. Who knows what the furutre holds.
I priced it out and did the build for the one I want online. Couldn't find an exact match anyhwere
That means they would have to special order it.
Orange Crush!: I love the way that one looks. The name makes me think of that soda drink.
Hard top: I just like it better then the soft top. That is all.
One with a Nav System: I have an after market nav system in my Cobalt. I dont know how well aftermark nav system can hold up in a jeep though. I'm wouldnt be the first person to get caught in the rain with the top down. Would hate to ruin an aftermarket head unit.
Tow Package: That way I can hook my bike rack onto the reciever. Thought about getting the Max Tow package, so that I can haul a U-Haul trailer if I wanted or needed to. Then I can carry even MORE stuff. I understand that the difference is in the gear ratio at the end.
Manual Transmition: I like to shift. It makes me feel more in control of the vehical.
