You won't get any bashing from this KL owner. Our first Jeep was an XJ, and it has always been one of my favorites long before we bought it.

It might take a while, but stuff will begin to show up.

I'm finally in a position to make car payments again (not sure if I really want to or not...) and the KL is growing on me.
Have you checked out the limited information on the BU Renegade to see if it would suit your needs? If you don't need to get a car right now I would suggest waiting a few months until the 2015s are released. If you decide the Renegade won't fit your needs you can pickup a 2014 KL a little cheaper but you have to do it before the year end "sales" start.

Default trailhawk bashing

Hi all im new here and have been reading and I just wanted to say this... my first jeep was a patriot. . I got it for the gas mileage and true it was not a true off roader BUT I loved that jeep a few years back we had a BAD WINTER and on Christmas Day I was out pulling people out that got stuck in the snow.. it was a Great little jeep.. now that being said when I first seen the new jk unlimited I was like they just ruined the jeep I HATED THAT JEEP.. but I purchased a 2011 and lifted it and put 35s on it... and LOVED IT... but now I am looking at the new trailhawk... because of gas mileage. .. I guess what im trying to say is this.. ITS YOUR CHOICE OF WHAT YOU BUY AND YOU ARE THE ONE THAT PAYS THE BILL... so who cares what anyone else thinks if it fits your needs and your happy then thats all that matters. .. thats just my two cents. . Thanks for reading. .

i have the 2.4 trailhawk.. its quick.. feels nice in auto mode.. and once you switch to sport mode.. its ON!.. it tenses up! holds its self down a gear to maintain RMPs .. i love it.cant kick it out of a curve it handles better than some cars...
mud and sand work well.. and rock mode is awesome.. lockers are great too.

also.. its 4 lo is pretty sweet.. it crawls pretty good.. however.. it lacks the 10 inches the wrangler had in clearance.. but the skid plates work well.
does excellent in mud "so far" and if your a good driver you can go where a stock XJ goes or jk with 18s goes..

I think that was a marking ploy, if they would have named it a BLAW BLAW then it would be another jeep that I don't want. Why didn't they call it a scrambler B Or CJ- 2000, -------- cause the Cherokee was a best seller for years. Cause kids " know and like the cherokee name and this is smart business
And not to mention if cute little blondes are buying them, well I get to pull them out of the ditch, so no harm no foul
My XJ will stand proud no matter what. And the KL is just another car on road. It's a new day, humans don't like change, but change is here
Isn't this exactly what we started off with saying not to do... My KL hasn't gotten near getting stuck in the 5 months ive been driving it
