Looking for a WK with 5.7 & QDII

I'm a long time WJ owner looking to get a WK. I want to get one with the 5.7l and the QDII. I'm finding it difficult to find that combo without all the fancy "bells & whistles" (wood grain, leather, power everything, etc.).

I dont want a Cadillac, just want a basic jeep. All I have found are Limited editions & Overlands optioned to the max.

Am I searching for the Holy Grail? Are there any Laredos with the 5.7 & QDII? Or, am I just going to have all the fanciness?

Thanks for your input.

You can get a Laredo with a 4.7. But the only way to get a 5.7 Hemi is a Limited or Overland. I LOVE my limited, you will too.

I hear ya! I am shocked at how many luxury features my Limited has! It has more gadgets and gizmos than my 2005 Escalade!

My buddy has a 2010 Laredo with Hemi and QDII. Leather, nav, sunroof but not the dual zone climate controls or any of the interior wood or exterior chrome trim.

165k highway only miles. Sales rep. For sale.

Look for a 2010 laredo. The hemi's were in the "Laredo X" leather, sunroof. Usually QT2 in the laredos.

Hey man. The last year of the WK (2010) was the only option to get a Laredo with the HEMI. They also dropped the 4.7 that year. What that being said the 2010 Laredo HEMI is going to be the most basic for what you want. Good luck finding one too. It took me 4 months to find mine and there were only 4 others in the US for sale at the time!

The HEMIs are hard to come by here in TX. I finally found an Overland for sale. Not real crazy about all the fluffy, foo-foo stuff.....

I did end up buying the Overland. Was too good a deal to pass up.

I may have to plasti-dip over everything!
