New here, new '13 Laredo

Hello everyone. New here here from Prescott, AZ. Just traded in my 2008 JK Unlimited Rubicon on a new Black Forest Green 2013 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 3.6L. Just had a kid so the JK had to go, since it was heavily modded. Came here to read up on the WK2 and see what all there is to do to them. Already planning on a set of the Overland 20" OEM wheels/tires, a 730N head unit, an OEM Hemi exhaust, and am going to get the OEM tow package added on at the dealer. After test driving a few Hemi Grands, and a few 3.6 Grands, I went with the 3.6 for the extra fuel economy, and not much worse performance compared to the 5.7. I like the new Uconnect 130 bluetooth features that my RER MyGig Nav in my JK didn't have, like bluetooth audio streaming. Still would like the 730N for the Sirius Traffic though. I love the new 3.6 engine as well.


Here's some pics of the WK2. I LOVE it so far.




And here is the JK I traded in.
