Nice ride!
I am pretty sure all 75th limited's come with the HID lights and LED driving lights. I think a big part of this is the 75th anniversary front end that if form fitted around the HID style headlights (ie no black filler piece). Part of the 75th limited package comes with about half of what was in the regular luxury II package (ie uconnect and headlight upgrade). The things omitted (and thus in the 75th anniversary lux package) are: pano roof, vented seats, smart high beams, rain sensing wipers, 9 speaker stereo, and power tilt.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

BIG THANK YOU TO CROM. . . & JIM for answering-up about my rant/cry fest on TIRES ! !
crom . . . , your absolutely right, I (finally) priced a Limited 75th with the ORAII and even saw the photo change wheels to the 18"'s !
Jim, when I went to Michelin.com, checked on those tires specs & they too have an OD of 30.5" as do the Goodyear AT Adventure w/Kevlar (the ones I want) !
SO, all boils down to "insisting" I get the tires I want or no deal, even if it means going out of town . . . which means doing most of the negotiating via email !
Now THAT will be a new experience ! ! !
It would be great if the dealer could "special request" - pretend I have a Limited with ORAII on the assembly line - & have them put the 18"s with the Goodyears on my Laredo ! Can't hurt to ask ?
AnyWho, Much appreciate both of your inputs . . . as you know (?) even getting to a dealer, without wheels, IS a real pain in the arse !

Pretty good deal I think? They took around $5200 off MSRP.

The dealer put it in the HC spot! lol


Edit: I don't know why they are coming out sideways, they are normal on my PC.
SIDEWAYS ? It's a "New York" thing !
I know cause born/raised in/or close to NYC, and I usually end up "sideways" too . . . gets worse the older you get ! Kidding of course.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

All of the OEM tires have a general diameter of ~30.6" regardless of brand/model. And there's no way for Jeep to change that in the computer system, so if you up-size, your odo and speedo will be off slightly. And you'll need to replace your spare with a same-diameter tire, too. (required for 4WD vehicles)

Rumor has it you can use a Diablo tuner to adjust for the up-sized tires in the vehicle computer, but that's a pretty expensive proposition...

JIM, are you saying that upsizing is a real PAIN ? Yea I knew there was some ODO recalibrating that needed doing, & "assumed" the Dealer could easily do that ? Truthfully I do not want to upsize like so many of the others here, like Alludc's 33's. What I'd really prefer is to get the 75th-Wrangler's bronze 17" wheels which look very similar to the 18's of the G.C., but again just to keep it "simple" for now, I'll stick with the 18's and hope I can "finagle" a 5 set of those AT Adventure w/kevlar by Goodyear! IF, in the near future I come up with a few bucks to spare, I'll spring for those 17's IF THEY FIT WITHOUT ALTERATIONS NEEDED ! ?

ps; now that I think of it, I'll go check what the OD is on the same size tire used on the Wrangler 75th, which I believe ARE those same Goodyears I want ? They're probably not even 265's, but with a sidewall of either 70 or 75, the OD may be closer to 31.1" ? Something to do besides watching blah TV on the Internet !

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

If you put the Wrangler on your spare, it may be wide enough to disallow the cover to close over the compartment. The JGC full size spare is on an 18" wheel, but while the tire is the same ~30.6" diameter and rating, it's narrower in profile. 'Just something to know in case it's important to you.

There have been many, many discussions about tire sizes, etc, in the forum area up above that focuses on tires, suspension, brakes, etc.

BTW, don't make assumptions about anything...you will get burned...

Burned ! Ouch, so true . . . Bootcamp, 1st thing drilled into our heads - Make NO assumptions, Ever, Period ! Sometimes I don't catch myself using That Bad Word ! + I would NEVER not change the spare to match the rest ! Common sense, especially if off roading ! Believe it (or not) I DO have lots of C.S. !
I was born a "Nit-Picker," that gene must of come from dad [never got to meet him] cause mother wasn't, hee hee. What ever wheel / tire sizes come to be, the choice will be within that OE range of 30.5" / .6" - so it will fit in the spare compartment, & if by chance it may be to wide to close, "air down"! Will have my Compressor at all times & a tire repair kit too ! See I'm not as think as you dumb I am ? Hee hee !

PS; been trying to get a Milous answer confirming (as per his 2016 pg.1 mention of the "Orders Close date of May 6th" ! We / I have had talks about it perhaps on another thread, but the conclusion was (by Milous) I could order in June ! That may of been in reference to a 2017, I just don't remember !?
MY CONCERN is will any date after May 6th be TO LATE to order a 2016 75th G.C. ? ? ? Thanks Jim .

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

I'm going to gamble and wait for the 2017. I basically want exactly what Vanguard got so I hope they carry over the front and lights into the next model year.

They will...if u have seen the 2017 trailhawk and summit, it has the same front and lights...the 75th Anni is basically the first model available with new front.
