We are pretty excited. We bought a 07 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited yesterday. We haven't got it rigged for towing yet, that'll come next week.
Silver, Hardtop, Auto, 18" wheels, Nav, Sirius, and about anything that could be drug through the order sheet. The trip home, about 100 miles, was better than expected. Jeep has made leaps and bounds in ride quality and noise control. The X3 is a pretty tall bench mark and to say the least I'm impressed. Pictures to follow after a detail job later this week.

You should also have;

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> The Chrysler Lifetime Powertrain Limited Warranty

is the first of its kind to be offered by any automaker. Ever. Because with this warranty, you're covered, and it lasts for as long as you own your vehicle.

OUR LIFETIME POWERTRAIN LIMITED WARRANTY IS THE ICING. OUR VEHICLES ARE THE CAKE.

The big news is that this powertrain limited warranty applies to the vast majority of our great new Jeep® vehicles.* So if you want to leave civilization behind and explore the great outdoors in a Jeep Wrangler or a Patriot, our powertrain warranty will go with you. All the way.

</div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Now that is a great warranty.

Not a bad deal though it would appear. I think that the Detroit auto industry in going in the right direction with the American buying public. We also see a 5 year 100,000 mile GM powertrain warranty which is transferable as well.

About how much can I expect to spend on getting it rigged to tow? Also. Anyone tried the brake assist system that ties right in to the hydrolic system? I'm really wanting to use the latest technology to do this right.

Also, the original owner must take the vehicle in for a NO CHARGE INSPECTION within 60 days of every fifth year.
