oh and 4.11 gearing is now unavailable in everything except the rubicon model with a tow package. x and sahara tow packages now have 3.73 gearing so if you want the 4.11's get an 07 now while you still can

So you mean that a right hand steer, will be available to the U.S. civilians? If that is so, then cool!

no extended warranty

I happened to be looking at the terms of my DCX extended warranty yesterday, and noticed that it said the extended warranty is not available for vehicles right right-hand drive. Something to consider if you care.

This will be good for the rural mail carriers but there are many areas of the country which do not need that much off road capability to deliver the mail but need something more than 2 wheel drive. They ought to offer the Patriot in right hand drive for postal delivery.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.
