So is the Liberty and Commander

Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.

At least drive one, I was thinking the 2.4 would be weak but coupled with the CVT it has some good power.

Definitely... I was pleasantly surprised by the power it has. I'll have a better idea when I drive down to Phoenix after the break-in period.
