My new Trailhawk WK2 & friend's 4Runner!!

Last week I got rid of my 2015 grand Cherokee Altitude and bought a 2017 trailhawk. Love the aggressive look of the front end but felt the wheels needed a more aggressive look. Picked up a set of rubicon hard rock wheels and put on some 32" BFG ko2s. Love the new look! Wish the wheels were around a +20 offset but I'm not really into running spacers.
Anyways, my buddy with a new 4Runner wanted to take some pics, so here they are! Sorry for the Toyota in a few pics are also taken in all different quadralift height settings, from entry/exit to OR2.

I just bought a Trailhawk as well. I want to run some JK wheels. Did they fit without any issues? Beautiful Jeep!

Congrats! They bolted right up. It's close but no issues. I also have a v6 though, so I'm not sure if yours is the v8 or has the HD brakes. Those would require some grinding on the front calipers.

I do have the V8. I'm not sure if my wife would be as happy as I am to be grinding on "her" new Jeep. Maybe a couple months from now I can steal it and throw some Rubicon wheels on it.
She wasn't to happy about me taking it to Truckhaven in Ocotillo Wells the morning after we bought it. IMG_20170312_134718807.jpg

Wow you don't see the rhino too much! I wish my wife drove the new jeep, it just sits in the garage all week since I have a work vehicle during the week. I have some new osram CBI headlightbulbs that need broken in haha. Im not sure if yours would have the HD brakes then or not? Seems to be hard to narrow down what comes with them. I guess if your rear rotors are vented is the big giveaway.

The rhino wasn't our first choice but they wanted to make a deal and made us an offer we could not refuse. My wife loves this Jeep. It is everything she ever wanted and more. We will have it a long time. With the lifetime warranty we have nothing to worry about. Your rig is gorgeous, you should be proud of it.

Looking good Dead Serial! So I just traded in my 2014 Altitude for a Trailhawk as well. I went with the V8. I am in love with it, my fiancée...well, she's coming to terms with it! Anyway, the only thing my Trailhawk is missing are the HID headlights/LED daytime running lights. Any advice/recommendations on after market conversion kits? I've read through so many posts and comments at this point, my head is spinning!

Here's a few pics of my brand new 2017 Trailhawk V8!! I've added a few small touches of plasti dip...just because. Anyway, part of the deal when I traded in my older Grand Cherokee was that they had to let me keep the rims/tires that I'd been running (I got an amazing deal on these high altitude black chrome rims a few years back and I'm still in love with them!). Also, I literally just purchased the Cooper Discoverer AT tires a few months ago and didn't really want to part with them just yet. I have run into one issue though...

About 20 mins after swapping the wheels out, all of the tpms sensors stopped working. I haven't really had time to do any research yet but I'm assuming that the 2017's are using different sensors than previous years. I've never had an issue with the sensors in the past. No matter what I've done with my tires, the computer has always managed to adjust and pick up the sensors within about 10-15 mins. Anyway, I called the dealership and the guys in the service department didn't really confirm or deny that the sensors were different. They just asked me to bring it in...

Do any of y'all happen to know if I'm right about the sensors not being the same?
