Thanks John, and all. I'm convinced. The mighty Cherokee is the vehicle
for the job. The interstates ARE clogged these days, and with the Borla
exhaust, K&N intake, 5-speed, and good stereo in the Jeep I think I can
enjoy the trip. It DOES haul - up any hill on the WVA turnpike with
loaded trailer at 60 in 3rd gear. The All-American SUV experience?
hehe. And being January, we could get major snow. It's really fun in
that. We always carry a tow strap and love snatching people out of
snowbanks (wouldn't recommend THAT in the S4). And then there's the
advantage in cruising range...
