Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee is a WK2??

Unofficially, yes.
Officially, no. It's a "WK". Problem is, so was the last Grand Cherokee. This one was supposed to be WL, but there's a long story involved that I'll tell if you want to hear it.

So this one is unofficially called "WK2" to not get confused with the 2005-2010.

Yeah, "WL" doesn't roll off the tongue as easily as "WK" or "WK2".

Thanks -Folks.

Hope to keep it for a long time, as it is a very nice ride.
Looking for a service manual for it now. Probably not 'issued' yet....
----Even a pdf kind I could download onto zip drive and carry it to OfficeMax to print out.
