Obviously I like the idea of owning all around better vehicle but I'm not giving mine away and causing myself more issues. I'll have to take a little time and gain some info from those who have built the ad1 latitude to be more capable and reliable offroad.

So I assume the deal did not pan out? As far as making it better...the one you have...there really are only a few things you can do that make sense. And, with computers controlling everything, even possible. Get some AT tires. Tires make a huge difference. Pick up the front skid plate. I would not worry about the rest of the plates, you are not going to Moab. ****, even roadkill is likely to cause less damage with the front skid plate. My gf is going to get one in the next few months...she just does not know it yet . Pick up a shackle receiver from Warn or something off Amazon if you get the hitch. I'll tell you, if you want to hit trails, the hitch on my gf's Sport is NOT the one you want. You'll want the factory hitch due to the huge difference in ground clearance.

Hope this helps @Tmugz88. FYI...if you and I meet up next month for some camping, you can follow me on the trails and if you get stuck, I'll push you out of the way

As for the deal the bank is giving me the run around. I'm trying to trade the latitude in on a new trailhawk and they keep under pricing the trailhawk which is causing the decline. So I'm trying to get a different dealership to finance me and take my latitude in on trade.

Ditto!
