2014 Cherokee Trailhawk or 2014 Wrangler Unlimited

Wasn't sure where to post this. These are the cars I'm considering. Either a loaded Trailhawk or a sport s unlimited. I would be putting different rims and tires on whichever I get.

Depends, do you go off road a lot? If you care about how it rides on-road, and don't need GOBS of capability off road, then I would say trialhawk. Never driven either so don't base it all on me, just saying from what I've read.

I agree, they compare in price, but they are TOTALLY different vehicles. Wrangler if your looking for true traditional jeep ride and off road, but the trailhawk is a typical crossover, just with more ground clearance and a locking diff.

id prob go trailhawk as well... its loaded, has all the bells and whistles and prob has a better ride than the sport s. also if you want to take a backroad or whatever one day its capable of doing so.

plus its looking like you wont be able to lift them so you wont kill your MPG with a lift and bigger tires because its not possible

You might think about buying a used TJ and driving it for a few months. Even a loaded new Wrangler is pretty primitive compared to a completely up-to-date new platform like the Cherokee. If you shop, you can find lots of clean TJs that can be resold with little or no loss in the short term. This beats dropping $35G's on a vehicle you may find that you hate only after it's lost several thou in value. Buyer's remorse is expensive.

While I agree the cherokee looks "different", if he can get past the looks then the cherokee is a very good vehicle choice. Depends on what he is looking for in a jeep.
