I would be doing some light off roading on rare occasion. I am looking for something that will have very few mechanical problems that I can use as an every day driver. I have had 4 Dodge Rams that have had some major issues such as transmissions going, rears blowing and front end issues. From what I have heard the Wranglers are pretty much indestructable. I am also looking for something that I can put a small lift and larger tires on. And big enough to put a baby seat in the back... Nobody makes a lift for the nitro "yet". Hopefully they will soon.Will you be doing any off-roading (on purpose)?
The interior comfort and ride in a Wrangler is not up to the level of the Nitro IMO. If you want a capable off-roading vehicle that seats 4 comfortably as your daily driver, you can't go wrong with the Wrangler. If you're looking at the occasional dirt road and want a good all-season vehicle with comfort and features, go for the Nitro.
Hope I'm not coming on to strong here, but...Any suggestions or comparisons? I am stuck between the two...:Banana01:

First of all, welcome to the forumz! Your first post should have gone in the NEWBIE threads. You haven't even introduced yourself, but your asking questions, which I personally think is rude. We are a tight nit group here, family like... you know?. But you're excused. Secondly, you can go to yahoo auto's or MSN autos, for comparisons between the two above mentioned vehicles, and personal opinions.:Racing:
Most of us ARE absolutely adults. It only becomes a problem, when it's taken "personal" Like I said, I hope I didn't come on too strong, but a first post is a first post, and first posts go in a dedicated section, like it or not. Welcome again to the best damn Nitro forum on the net!:beerchug:Sorry if I offended you in any way! I have been reading the posts here for about a week now and have found this board to be very helpful. I figured I would introduce myself once I made my decision on which vehicle to buy. I kind of figured that since you guys are all Nitro owners and assuming that we are all adults here, this would be a good place to get some real feedback on them.
I agree....it's basically a nitro (since the nitro is based off the liberty platform) that will have better 4 wheel drive capability....I just hope jeep doesn't screw this one up like the new grand cherokees and commanders and have that full time all wheel drive crap, and have the command trac or selec trac like my current liberty hasYou might want to wait for the 2008 Jeep Liberty. Looks like a mini-Commander. And has the interior almost similar to the Nitro.
