Welcome Shocker, I too am in AZ and there are many places to go. Are you in the Phx area?

Your 3.7 will be fine for off roading. The main reasons for the larger motor come inot play if you are pullung a trailer and things like that. I have the Hemi but there are a lot of people here with the 3.7 and they are quite happy with it.

Welcome to the club -- I have a HEMI, b/c in our area, it helps to boost quickly into the freeways and also to haul extra people without noticing the add weight. Enjoy it w/ the 3.7L.. I bet it's loads of fun
