Whether the lux2 group would get you a 220A alternator is questionable.. I don't know if the package list for lux2 listed a 220A alternator (I stopped looking at the packages when I ordered my '14)
Thanks for that info on the fan size. I always wondered what all they did to increase cooling on the tow pack

No ORAII. I believe the only options were tow package and 8.4 radio. I have since added skid plates and tow hooks but that another story.

Re: 2015 JGC alternator

April 2013 build V6, Limited, ORA-2, Lux, Adv. Tech - 220 Amp. Alternator. I thought the 220 alternator was tied to ORA packages not necessarily to trim.

Re: 2015 JGC alternator

Oddly enough the 2015 overland and summit is only available with the 220 amp alternator with the eco Diesel engine.

Very strange because the limited can get it with the ORA II and trailer tow groups. The only thing I can think is the LED DRL and HID's pull less current so they don't think it's needed.
