Wj owner looking at Wk

I'm looking to upgrade my jeep soon but don't know what path to take. I like the look of WKs but I'm afraid the 3.7 doesn't pack a lot of punch becuase my dad has a Commander with the 3.7 and it's a dog with only 2" and 31s...I want to get 4" with 33s. Should I try to find a HEMI, or go different and try to find a Wrangler

I had a wj 4.7ho. Do not get a 3.7 just like previous poster said. U gotta go at least 4.7 again or if u find a hemi thats the way to go. Im very happy with my hemi although city mpgs suck. But i really dont care. Its good to know if you need it the power is there. One of my friends had has a 2013 passat another has 2001 inifinity i30. If it wasnt for my jeep we would have been stranded in Vermont after new years during that big storm. But i managed to get both of them out with my truck in 4low. That thing is a beast. If u can get one b4 the recall was done to it even better, otherwise i recommend that you get a flashpaq.

The only reason I could afford it was I was in an accident with my first car and got a lot of money in court haha, I love it.

I forgot that the WK had a 4.7 option, I will have to look into that although almost all for sale in my price range(10-12k) are all 3.7 or HEMI with 150k on them

You can find a 4.7 in that price range just keep looking. Although not the best time to be looking as it's winter and prices are obnoxious

Like I said, my dads got a XK and it won't go anywhere off road. And plus the V8s got a low-lock option so that will help out a lot especially and the sand dunes
