You can get dual exhaust on it...if you don't get the V6

You're welcome. You might go through tires a little "quicker" running AT's...but I'd rather do that than lose the traction they give me, all other things being equal. If I get 40 or 50K out of them, I'm happy lol.

Hi Bubba, this is late in the offing, & I see your inclined to go Granite, but my lowly Laredo 75th in Recon Green has the same 18" wheels as that Limited, but has the LRR Michelin tires. Crazy that I (or anyone for that matter) couldn't (can't) get those Goodyear AT's w/kevlar with ANY Trail Rated G.C., regardless of the model level !
BUT, you can see those same wheels (if you haven't already) on page 26? post 301 . . . on this thread.

I had a similar problem. Ended up finding the one configured the way I wanted it out of pure luck at a dealership 30 miles from my house. Searched within 350 miles and it was the ONLY one of its kind...

Limited, V8 5.7, tech, lux, and tow. Brilliant black.

Same here, but I had to go 400 miles for the one I wanted.

I recently found a granite 75th with adv technology package at a Jeep dealer just North of Baltimore. I found it through jeep.com's build tool and it seemed to be the only one in granite anywhere about 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, they were unwilling to trade it with another dealer and I was treated in such a way that I wouldn't but as much as a lug nut from them.

Ended up making some compromises on options and purchasing my 75th elsewhere.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Yeah. The dealership I originally went to told me they could order what I wanted, but that I wouldn't get the incentives or deal I wanted as a result... I work in sales so paying sticker or close to it is complete BS in my opinion.

After searching online through Jeep's website, I happened to find the exact one I wanted not too far from my neck of the woods. After a quick 40 minute drive and a little haggling, I was all set.

The dealer I ultimately went too has been far less than stellar in terms of getting things done right - i.e. they screwed up my direct deposit, gave me a ration of s4!t for having my own financing, paid off my trade in late... I could go on... Long story short, I wanted what I wanted so I had to go through with a crap dealership, but I refuse to spend $40k+ on anything that isn't exactly what I want.

If you can get the stars to align though, these 75th editions are some of the most stunning JGC's I've seen on the road to date... Maybe I'm just biased, but hey, they do look good.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

75TH, I just don't get dealerships that play games when someone wants to order from the factory...it's a good sale. And they didn't even have to give up one that they can sell to the next person through the door. So that means...if they are actually good salespeople...an extra sale for the month/quarter/whatever. One of the things I like about our JeepGarage "group buy" vendor Koons is that they sell you the vehicle you want...out of inventory, out of incoming, out of a new factory order just for you...for the same price. That's how they get to such huge volume. When I buy my next one...that's most likely where it will come through.

You should be biased if it is the one you chose! Best of luck with it.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

I noticed end of model year 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 75th Anniversaries are now built with body color matched (and even listed on Window Stickers) lower fascias, side sills, and fender surrounds as opposed to the gloss black.

What an odd thing to change. I am glad I got mine while they were still doing the gloss black. I think the black lower facia/side sill/fender surrounds make it look more aggressive...
