White. Black leather. Tech. C/C. Cold weather. Sun roof. Tow. Basically every single button.



I'll post pics tomorrow after she gets a bath. She's got road dirt from the drive home and clods of mud jammed in the front skid plate. (I may have bypassed the cloverleaf at an interchange)

I didn't even see that in inventory! Good for you. I've been looking at the inventory online and the only THs like that that I have seen in Texas have brown interior, otherwise, I would have bought that one up myself! Just curious, what did you pay or how much did you get off MSRP? Trying to figure out how much I can work off my deal.

I got very lucky. Searched the inventory and called Ancira in san Antonio to verify. Negotiated over phone. They even price matched what is worked on my order (about 2% below invoice). Just had to pay a bit more because this one had the cold weather package on it already.

They had just unloaded it off the truck and were pulling the plastic wraps off when I got there. They'd received 3 other calls about it in short succession after I called. Glad I left a deposit.

I know it's not totally kosher to name dealerships here but I have to say the folks at River Oaks CJD were great. They helped me get an amazing price on my order. And the other dealership matched that price. I felt really terrible about canceling the order but they were very understand and came across excited that I was able to get exactly what I wants and promptly got me my refund on the deposit I'd already given them.

I can't speak highly enough about the folks at both River Oaks CJD in Houston and Ancira in San Antonio. Chrysler has some really great customer service all the way down to the local level. The whole process of finding and getting this trailhawk has been a pleasant adventure all it's own.

And many thanks to everyone here on JG for their help and advice

Happy Trails,
Herb

1 complaint. Fuel economy.

I can't seem to get better than 16/18.

But that might be because it's always in sport mode and I find the accelerator is already wearing a spot in the floor board.

Also. Just discovered another Easter egg I haven't seen listed anywhere else.

Requirement:
Trailhawk, sunroof, 9 speaker audio, v6 motor

There's a very specific process to trigger this eegg

You have to be traveling greater than 70 mph select sport mode. Sunroof open. Queue up "Sweet child of mine" by guns and roses. Turn the volume up to about 27. When the drums kick in, about 18 seconds into the song... Mash the accelerator. At 5000 rpms... Off all of these conditions are met you get a really awesome Easter eggs courtesy of jeep engineers. I don't know how they made it happen... But it will actually make your heart flutter!

Would that be the flashing blue and red lights in the rearview mirror?

Actually. Ready for another fun story?

I had been driving it rather aggressively all day around San Antonio and visiting friends before getting back on the road to Houston. I had a friend that made the trip with me and I offered him to feel how the v6 drives. We waited til we were out of the city and exited the freeway and changed seats. He drives it back onto the freeway. Punches that long skinny pedal. And off goes the red and blues. He wasn't driving it for 3 minutes.
