Seems nice. How does it compare to your current one?

Rocky Mountain is a trim package, nothing more. If both trucks are Trail Rated, they'll both have the same suspension components. It all boils down to the engine and extra options. If the RM edition has the extra toys and V8 engine, go for it.

And to re-ask Bobula's question: how does it compare to your current XK?

I say go for the one with the most options that has the V8. You can't take it with you when you kiss this crappy world goodbye spend it all I say.

I have a 2008 RME. It is just a very well dressed up Sport. - One interesting fact: in 2008 with the RME there was an option for QDII (not QTII) with the 4.7. Very rare - I tried to find one when I was looking but my dealer could not locate one here in the Midwest. In the end I purchased the upgraded skids and lived with the QTII.

2008 Jeep Green Rocky Mountain 4x4 4.7L, 245/65 R17 Fortera's,
class IV tow package w/shackle, front tow hooks, remote start,
MyGig w/backup cam, bun warmers, commandview, QTII,
Rocky Road Super Sliders (now installed and tested!), no lift, full Jeep OEM skid plates,
4xGuard Belly Guard, 4xGuard front skid, Surco 50 x 70 roof rack.

Dumb question

Can you not change out transfer cases if you wished at a later date?

I have the RME and it also has the QDII not QTII, much better option if you can get it.

Transfer cases are the same for QTII and QDII. The differences are the differentials: QTII has open diffs; QDII has computer controlled auto-locking diffs. You'd need to change the diffs & axle housings and computer controls for the ELSD system and related systems. Its easier to buy a XK already equipped with QDII than to try and convert one.

I second that! If I had it to do over I'd have bought a Limited Hemi!
