Great web-site and user forum!
I just bought a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6l.
Done 2,000 miles very happy

My only wishes...

Possibility to bump the BHP a bit. I dont see any overclock solutions yet for 2011-12 GC 3.6l available. Are there any other quick fix solutions that can give a noticeable improvement in HP (e.g. cold air intake?) that members could recommend? I go to Tahoe a lot and the climb to 6500ft certainly shows up the lack of power mid-range for overtaking etc.

Will the navigation firmware be upgradeable at all? User interface is not the best - who chose to hide the zoom/out function behind a screen button? Also, infuriating to not be able to enter an address when moving...I am not so stupid to program the navigation whilst driving - too distracting - but the passengers can operate it too...! would be great to disable that function at least - any suggestions?

Any chance to tweak ground clearance settings? It seems crazy to not be able to lower the car for standard road use...also 1/2 inch insnt enough... I dont mind a harsher ride in exchange for better roadholding/cornering (I just changed from an Infiniti FX with sport suspension). Again - any quick fixes that members can suggest much appreciated.
