Almost mine.. 2013 Brilliant Black Trailhawk

Well, I'd figure I'd jump the gun and introduce myself to the forum. I am in the midst of replacing my 2006 TJ that was totaled when a distracted driver rear ended me. That is not entirely true; I bought a 2004 Toyota 4Runner v8 to replace it.. I HATE that thing..

So, I have on delivery a brand new 2013 BB Trailhawk. It is a few states away and i'm having it shipped.. Anyway. Glad to be here. Hope to get my new rig soon. Already looking into the ViewPick mod for DVD and NAV controls in motion.

Anything else i should look into?

I'm thinking of getting a 2013 Trailhawk as well. What made you choose a 2013 vs a new 2014 model (not trailhawk obviously)? I'm concerned about the 5 speed mostly vs 8 speed tranny. Otherwise I like the 2013 looks better.

Re: Almost mine.. 2013 Brilliant Black Trailhawk

well, i love the face lift of the '14s but i hate chrome.. so that left me with a laredo, but i wanted the v8.. there is no middle ground in 2014..

I love the hood, the wheels, the gunmetal look grill mirrors and brushed trim on the interior.. i just wish the window trim was black or brushed as well.. nothing some green scotch bright pads cant cure however. (carefully of course)

the tow package, the adjustable ride height for conditions; you really cannot go wrong with the Trailhawk. I need to figure out if SRT8 headlights need anything special or if they are plug & play.. (I.E.: leveling motors)

Nice, real nice. I saw a TraiHawk at Chapman in Las Vegas on Sahara yesterday with the black roof rack or basket or what ever they call it for when you travel with a lot of stuff. All blacked out even the rims; had the hood strips and red hooks and it was new. Looked real nice and so does yours.

yeah i was originally going to get taht one.. untill i saw all that "aftermarket" mods they did.. i hate black wheels; they painted or swapped our the grey for black. and the roof basket... umm.. not my style.

My rig is OEM from the factory as you see it.
