My First Jeep: 2012 GC X Package

Hey All! I just picked up my first Jeep, a 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo with the X package. I've been wanting to buy a Jeep for several years now and the timing with this one was just right. I live in CT and traded in a VW GTI to get this Jeep. I'm still learning a ton about this vehicle but so far I can say I'm absolutely pleased with my decision. Anyway, look forward to being a part of the community and learning from you guys. Only thing I've done so far is get the front windows tinted to match the rest.

From the dealership






Then when I got it home, the before and after pics of the tints.

Congratulations on your new ride ! Nice step up from the GTI, and better in the snow.

Thank you guys! It's definitely a HUGE change from a lowered GTI

biggest thing i've had to get used to so far is the pedal placement. The GTI pedals were a lot further back under the dash, if that makes sense... my shins are feeling it going from gas to brake. but overall, I love the Jeep so far! Is it scary that I'm actually looking forward to the first snowfall now??
