Returning Jeep owner with a 2013 Laredo X
For my first post, I would like to say I am glad to be back in the world of Mopar. After owning 5 other Jeeps, I am very happy to buy my first NEW car, and it being a Grand Cherokee. All I can say is wow - Jeep and Dodge has really outdone themselves making a very nicely built SUV this time around. It blows away any other Jeep I've ever owned.
In the end - I bought a white Laredo X with the Hemi V8, Polished 18" wheels, Offroad Group, Allweather Group, Fullsize Spare, Sunroof, Security Group, Trailer Group, and Uconnect Voice for $38k flat. I think I did my shopping right, walked out the door with tax, title, tags, and extended warranty for $39.5k.
Sadly, NC weather has been absolutely horrid, so no new pictures of my toy yet. But I am very surprised with how well it is built. The paint is pristine with no orange peel, the leather interior is nicely done, and the dark wood trim doesn't feel cheap or out-of-place.
I saw online the Trailhawk concept - and I LOVE the gunmetal gray tailgate trim, grille, and wheels - and I am looking for something along those lines as my first cosmetic mods, along with color-matched turn-signal mirrors, and OEM projector headlights (VA state inspection is very strict on retrofits). I am keeping my eyes open for all of these parts but have no idea where to start - if they even exist! If anyone knows where to find any of these - I would be happier than ever!
I hope to post pics on here soon of my new pride and joy, and update it as time goes along with my modifications and upgrades - cosmetic and functional!
