The Granite Crystal looks great, i am very happy with the paint choice. Hopefully i will be heading to Moab in the next month or so, i should have a bit more to say after i get some trail time in.

What are the tires supposed to be at got mine late last night and mine rode rough this AM and didn't get a chance to look at the sticker on the inside of the door

Tires are rated at 51 psi max. Mine came inflated in the upper 40's. Door sticker says 33 psi.

Re: 2017 Trailhawk reviews, let's hear em!

Are the Wrangler Kevlar 18's that came on my Trailhawk nitrogen filled?

Because I had two tires at 39 psi and two at 40 psi, so I topped off all 4 at 42 psi with air. I was just wondering if I shoulda went nitro instead?

You would know if they're nitro filled. Mainly because the dealer would be telling you non stop and charging you 2k over sticker for it

Re: 2017 Trailhawk reviews, let's hear em!

I just picked mine up Friday. Going from a 2015 v6 limited 4x4 to a v8 trailhawk, I have to say, the ride is much, much softer than I would have thought. It's almost floaty feeling. OR1 seems to ride much better and even OR2 isn't bad for the short distances I'm able to drive slow enough for it to work. Aero sucks going over expansion joints.


I think I know what my first mod is going to be.

Did your 2015 limited have Quadralift? Just curious if comparing coil suspension vs QL or comparing older QL vs newer QL. I have a 2015 Limited as well with QL and I agree it feels a little floaty, but it actually soaks up expansion joints quit well in Aero.

My '15 did not have QL, just factory coil springs.

Do they have the GREEN valve caps on the tire valve stems? I was told if they have the Green caps they are nitrogen filled tires.

The air pressure placard on the door jam says 33 PSI if you want to run 42 thats up to you but you will probably get excessive wear in the center of the tire tread.

Re: 2017 Trailhawk reviews, let's hear em!

Can the trailhawk be ordered without the stickers on the hood?

Or can they be taken off easily?

It's just a vinyl decal and should come off easily. Just take a heat gun to it and peel off. Careful not to keep the heat to one area for too long as it might damage the paint.
