Been a few weeks since I trade my Liberty for the Cherokee. LOVING IT. Such an upgrade all around.

Hi - Can you talk about your previous KK (modded?) and why you prefer the KL Trailhawk?

I'm actually contemplating the same swap - an '11 lifted KK - obviously the KL cannot be lifted, but don't really need that anymore. Just need something to get me to the trailheads and ski resorts of New Mexico and the desert bends of the Southwest...with good gas mileage : )

They can be lifted! Check cherokeeclub.com.

Love my KL. Got a Limited 4x4 though.

I did the same this morning but I traded my 2010 KK for a 2016 Trailhawk. I was sad about turning in my old battle wagon until about 5 minutes into driving the new Cherokee. Oh My God is this thing nice!

Where to begin? It rides a million times quieter and smoother, it has dozens more features like blue tooth radio and phone sync, backup camera, diagnostics to see the exact air pressure at each tire and not just a generic "one or more of your tires is low by some unknown amount" light.

I'm in heaven! I can't wait to try out the vastly superior 4 wheel drive system and 1" extra ground clearance!

Replaced (after an accident) my 2006 CRD KJ for a 2019 KL Trailhawk. Miss my old rig but the KL is nice, new features. Not a diesel, say goodby to 450/500 mile refueling. Also goodbye to looking for diesel fuel (and usually paying more) noise and lots of drips. KL better turning radius than the KJ. Haven't had the KL offload, only a couple hundred miles on it so far. I think this will work out.

I came so close to doing the same swap. 2012 KK Arctic with a Daystar 2 inch and ATs, for a 2019 KL with the 2.0 turbo. The price was a hard pill to swallow and I like having a vehicle that I feel is more truck based vs car based when I'm off road.

If I had a rear locker on my KK how would it fair to a trailhawk offroad?

I feel like I'm gonna get better articulation out of my KK.
