Bought another jeep yesterday, hopefully will turn up in a couple of weeks. :peaceout:
2017 grand Cherokee diesel with some shiny flash bits, should be able to do 2200km between servos. Can't wait to get touring in it.

My good mate has a '16 Blackhawk WK2 with the T/D V6 and the 8 speed.

So good dropping down to 3-4l/100 on the highway. Tows like an absolute champ too, you'll love it.

Really? That could be interesting considering how torquey they are in the Cherokee, I imagine the wrangler is a lot lighter

Yes but it isn't a proper 4wd.

My wrangler with both tanks full plus fridge weighs 1800kg (350kg more then my jimny) and the GC with full tank is 2400kg.

1800kg and 570nm @ 2000rpm would be a lot of fun

Yikes your Jimny was 1450kgs. The JK is obviously much better for your needs.
