From what I can tell (I could be wrong, but it's basically doing the same job, no point in designing a completely different system), the BLIS is basically just another sensor of the type they use for the rear parking distance alert system, only it's mounted in the side of the rear bumper cover, not the rear. Mate that to a light on the side mirror and a buzzer, and you're there. Still, I wonder if there's just no spot on the stock harness for it- that, the mirror differences, and the computer programming are probably the main obstacles. The computer isn't much of one, but the mirror and the harness would be.

Another thread said you could order the tech package today. I don't know if that means they will be building that way right away. I didn't hear from my dealer today as expected so I can't say that I personally know that. Other members are definatley informed.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee - Now it's getting personal

My understanding is that the items that became available today are for November build.

Nothing on Jeep.com yet so it would be great if anyone could chime in on whether the dealers are able to order any of these new options (Mineral Grey, Saddle, ACC, Blind Spot, Rear Cross Path Detection, Advanced Collision Warning etc.)

I would be ok with that. I'm in no rush to get rid of my paid for Tahoe with 118,000 miles
Seriously I would just like to get it ordered the way I want it and then play the waiting game.
I did this last year with the wifes Camaro. Once it was ordered then I went into frantic when will it be here mode. Really only because it was her anniversary present. Sure enough it came in 2 days before.

I was hoping they would update the site today with more options. Looks like they got a few more 2011 models up though.

Yes, dealers can order the new options as of today. The web site updates always lag behind the dealer order availability date.
