newb, please help with model comparo

I am going to purchase a black grand cherokee. I was going for the overland because I like the body color lower and wheel lip cladding. I also like the rims. I don't like chrome, and was going to powdercoat the rims, get door handles and mirror caps all in black.

Now with the altitude, I'm thinking that model. I was going to order on Monday, hence why I was searching this forum today.

I want heated seats, heated steering wheel, back up camera, the 7 inch gauges, 8.4nav, power lift gate, remote start, led running lights, and sunroof. Am I missing anytHing or misinformed? Forum experience is usually way better than the info from the dealer so I thought I would see what else I might not be seeing here.
If I get the overland I would get the technology package. Is this a must have?

V6 is the engine of choice anyway.

One other thought. ... what is the entry height of the Laredo compared to the overland with the air ride at park? Is it substantial?

This will be an on road veHicle. But I will opt for 4x4 since I'm in illinois for snowy weather.

Thanks. ..

The Adv Tech package is an option on the Overland, but if the dealer has one in the area with it already, you might get a discount by hinting you didn't need it but would buy right away if it were knocked off a bit.

The jeep website build your own was pretty accurate, dunno if it has the altitude models up yet to compare.

The Summit is a 4x4, oriented on road, but the Overland can be optioned with on-road as well... 20 in wheels no offroad package.

You can't get the altitude with the LED DRLs or the nice nav unit. Just isnt an option.

What you want is found only in the overland or limited with lux 2.

The Adv. Tech package is great if you want blind spot alert.
