Looking at a 2016 Trailhawk. I have a WK2 currently. Any pearls of wisdom?

So I have a 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited, which has such a good equipment package that I could never repurchase a comparable new WK2, but I do like the Trailhawk. I live in a snowmelt,rust belt if upstate NY. I don't put loads of mikes on my cars as I'm retired these days but still under 50. I do have a dog I transport, who would have to be in the back of the Cherokee, maybe with seats folded down. My WK2 is still worth a pretty good amount with just 54K miles on it, but no warranty or service contract any longer.

Is there anybody who has downsized from a WK or WK2 and really liked or hated there decision to go with the Cherokee?

It took a couple years for me to like the newer look but, now I like the XJ styling. I really like the mango with black Trailhawk.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

It would help if you posted this in the area for 2014+ Cherokees. This section is for XJ Cherokees over 15 years old.

I figured this out but didn't know how to remove. Bought the TH so no more questions. Just adjustments to the new style of Jeep.
