Question about what Grand Cherokee platform would be best to start with.
A few years back I had a 2012 GC Summit with the Hemi but it was only 2 wheel drive (I loved this SUV). I sold the GC to buy a Viper (which I still have) and then I bought a 2014 Ram 1500 (but again only 2 wheels drive). Now I have the urge to build a 4x4 GC but not knowing much about the different options Jeep offers, I'm unsure what would be best for me to start with. I just assumed that I wanted to start with the "trail rated" package group (Off-Road Adventure II) but it looks like those all have the air ride suspension. I've read that I can't lift the air ride equipped Jeeps. Is this true? If that's true what would be the next best option?
My must have list:
looking to buy a new 2016
1.) 5.7L engine & 4x4
2.) heated and cooled seats (live in Houston and cooled seats are needed)
3.) I wanted ACC but it sounds like this causes problems with after market bumpers and winch combinations so I'm undecided on this.
4.) color has to be silver.
