Ok, Jeff, Dave or any other Jeeper out there. I've looked over the jeep website which is where most of my factual info came from. I've stopped in and kicked the tires at a couple places and as is common, the salesman always says what I need is what they have on their lot. The big question is what do I really need? Hill stop is something I've never heard of, what is it, do you have to order it, how does it work, how's it different from differential lock.

Is there much difference in jeeps built in past few years, what's to look out for on a used one. Was told they keep price and therefore want cost much more to just buy a new one!

I bought 2008 in 2012 and got a great deal on it. I think the switch is called hill hold I don't have it but it is on Dave's and he has a 2012 . Its more than adequate for trails without spending an extra 10k for a Rubicon

Cheers !!!

Bought our from Landers in Benton... We just got basic wrangler, no power windows, etc... Soft top.... Can get as basic as we want.... In fact i use it for my everydsy car.... Better deal than from Steve Landers... But i did buy a cherokee from Steve 14 years ago, and a toyota... This time DH liked the deal from Benton.....
Not sure what hill stop is, but do know that it does not roll when i come to a stop on a hill...

You can see a lot further from a hill stop. The higher the hill the better the view.

For the benefit of the audience, or any STM that may lend an eye:

Hill holder is when you put it in 4L off road, press hill-holder, and just use the gas. No braking. When you let up on the gas it puts on the brakes, you stop. Works uphill or down.

Waaaaay cool.

We have that on our Jeep. Called hill descent control. Never been on a hill steep enough that I felt a need to use it. Have it on a Ford super duty also and have never used it. May need it someday, for now I just use the brake pedal myself. In four low it pretty well holds it self back.

Ok, my last Jeep questions for the night, to tow, do you need to do anything other than place transfer in Neutral, does the toad mileage show up on odometer?

If 2008 or later, Xfer in N, trans in P. Key off. Lock doors. ROLL! No miles added.

My odometer reads about 34,000, and the tires have enough on them that I will replace them with BFG A/Ts this summer.
