Plan on pulling the trigger as soon as the recon green shows in the build for the dealers as long as the V8 remains an option.
If true that is great news.

What color interior are you thinking with recon green?

Dan, the lady from Koons who's running the Group Buy said she was showing the V8 available on the Limited version of the 75th Anniversary edition. If that flies, it will make some folks happy.

I think maybe the puddle lamps. That's how I'm going to configure my Limited, mostly to avoid the wooden wheel and leather dash of the Overland. I've decided to wait for a 2017 though, in hopes of getting Carplay and Android Auto.

Oh, I believe you also have to spec the 8.4 NAV if that's what you want, as what you get otherwise is the regular 8.4.

I'm going to go with the frost (beige) interior, think it is nice to have some contrast and not be all black. I am planning on selling my resort and moving to SW Colorado and the lighter interior will also be a little cooler in the summer. I have the indigo/jeep brown interior on my overland now. Wish they would have had a brown option as I think those look good too.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking, although there is some reference to "courtesy lights" on the mirrors so I'm not totally sure about the puddle lamps. Would be nice to have them, they work well on my overland.

Yeah I was thinking of the same color combo/options assuming a Hemi is offered on the limited. I think it will look awesome. I would like to see the interior before committing though.

I do think the black interiors tend to be too dark.

Thanks Milous you made my day confirming that!

Now as soon as the order blanks will just show Recon Green as an option I'll get my order placed!!

Nice, thanks for the info. It didn't make any sense that it wasn't offered for the limited, glad they fixed it.

Now we just need some quality pictures of a recon green with lux II and tan interior ;-)

I might have to order one.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Milous - Liking the Laredo E version of 75th, and want to know if it can be optioned with the off road adventure 1 . Also, The 17 inch wheels on the 75th Wrangler Unlimited are IMHO Better suited for going off road . . . WILL THESE FIT THE LAREDO G.C. 75th without any alterations ? My Dealer I am sure will be wondering when I bring it up ! ? Thanks in advance.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

MILOUS - Thank you & also for the newly updated wk2jeep site, Nice. Just call me stupid cause I have more dumb questions based on your sites 75th G.C. Info. & since not able to build at jeep.com. #1 When buying/building the 75th Laredo 4X4, is 'AGM' package ($4,480) in addition to the msrp. of $36,775 ? This package is a LONG list of otherwise smaller options when building the current Regular Laredo E 4x4. I was not aware (more like confused by the JEEP site) concerning what was included or not in this vehicle - such as the 8.4" screen ? Thought that was for the Limited version ? #2 Are you saying then, that the $36,775 msrp. (package 23F) is for the new styling, the PUG V6 & the 845RE tranny, + the new seat materials and colors ? #3 and that IF I do not want the 'AGM' package ($4,480) I can instead BUILD it with the off-road adventure 1 + the back-up camera, and be under/close to $40,000 ? I MIGHT AS WELL JUST WAIT FOR THE JEEP BUILD & PRICE TO SHOW UP - & hope IT is up & running properly !

MILOUS, about those RIMS, any suggestions as to who or how to determine that OFFSET difference in the 75th wheels; G.C. Laredo & Wrangler ? Is it an issue, and if it is how to correct for it ?
