That said, i may put skids on which will run me $500...i like the idea of hill ascent... and if we do do any serious off-road trails we'll want/need taller sidewalls meaning diff 20" tires or 18" rims+tires.

Would make the same choice today as it is the Mrs' ride and she wont venture off the asphalt path and when/if we go off-road it would be fairly mild anyways 😏
Was torn between a velvet red HA and a 75th. Picking up a granite 75th today with Lux, ORA2, and Nav. This one was my 2nd choice in the 75th as a dealer that had my preferred vehicle (only one left like it anywhere) was a nightmare and then some and would not trade with the dealer I was working with.

I really only wanted the Quadra Lift and tow package out of the ORA2. Really want to swap the 18's for 20's as I do a ton of driving and rarely leave the highway. Could very well be willing to remove the skid plates as well.

If anyone has 20's and wants 18's, shoot me a PM! I'm in Maryland.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Photos please. I'd love to see the 18" 75th wheels on a Granite JGC.

And do you want the 20" just for looks? I would imagine the 18's ride at least slightly better even on the road.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Thanks! That looks great. I think you should stick with the 18's.

Not for looks. Since the18's are all-terrain and I average 26,000 miles a year (99% on the road), my thought was that switching to the 20" & all season tires that are stock on this model without the off road package would fare better (longevity, better gas mileage, smoother ride) on the road.

I will say that the cabin is pretty quiet and the all-terrains aren't nearly as loud as I thought they'd be.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

You can accomplish those goals (assuming you still want to) just by switching out the tires. No need to switch the wheels - and in fact you would probably lose at least a bit of comfort/smoothness by going from the 18's to the 20's (assuming same tire that is).

I had the AT Adventures on my 2014 as well as this one - noise wise, I can't tell the difference between the Michelin Latitudes I had originally and these ones, on either Jeep. Same thing with ride smoothness. The AT's were, and are, far better in rain, etc than the stock Latitudes too.

God it kills me that they made this model single exit exhaust! That drives me nuts! Dual looks so much better.
