After a year long search to find the perfect example, I found a one owner 2007 WK (Grand Cherokee) CRD (Common Rail Diesel) in Sept 2016. What makes this particular vehicle special is 2007 & 2008 were the only years the Mercedes OM642 engine. Mine had only 60k miles on the clock.
Tough call. It's a rare and desirable vehicle that's in near perfect condition. So do I want to treat this as an investment, or do I want to hardcore expo it?
What I've done so far is very minor. Rough Country spacer lift to clear the 32" tires. JBA UCA & belly skids. AEV EGR which allows calibration of speedo and stops the traction control from freaking out. Of course, I had to hook up the electrics
Super lift does make a 4" lift which requires cutting and welding for $2,800 and JBA makes a 6" fit like $10k.
OME makes some parts too, but then the Outfitters be all like whaa... I don't know Jeep parts.... whaa... Joseph's always looking for a deal... whaa... I'm all Jeep hatrz....
figured i'd update...i picked this up as a work truck, but i've found it to be incredibly capable and i love driving it, so i'm sure it will see a bit of off road time after this trip, i added slee sliders and a winch and bumper are in the plans
Some of you from a couple years ago may have remembered seeing me in the Dually on the "Freeze Your Tail Off" trip. I had the only big truck and failed to air down from 80PSI. My kidney's are still out there somewhere.
But, I do wheel this thing regularly and it's an awesome offroad rig and very capable 4x4 (4x6?):
But, mostly I have 4x ATV's that I have ridden throughout the West, Idaho to Southern Nevada.
