Tempted to trade the Grand Cherokee Gasser in on this

#1 Post by grant » Thu Apr 25, 2013 4:41 pm

30 MPG with 7400 lb tow capacity. 420 ft lbs of torque with 8 speed ZF tranny. Man that would handle 17 like a champ. Not that my Penastar v6 gasser cant handle it but it takes some revs. But i do like burning corn juice at $3 a gallon with my current car!

I thought thats what trailer was for? At least thats how I justified mine! Whenever I haul lumber etc I just hook up trailer.

Great idea. I'll try to pass that off with the lady but for quick trips across town to pick up freebee brick finds from the internet, she might cry wolf. I'm totally fine with it, though.
