Picked up my new 2016 Summit last night :D

Exactly 1 month to the day since order. Dealer was totally surprised it came in so fast. Got the Michelin Defender LTX's put on right away. That new Velvet Red looks amazing in the sun! Very happy so far...

That looks great i like that red velvet.

So how do you like the 2016 V8 with the electric steering?

And how do you like the Defenders? Those are great tires. Do they soak the bumps up well? Smooth highway ride? Any complaints or all good?

Those waffled lugs are like velcro in snow and ice. That with the Quadra-drive let you launch from snowy stoplights.

Congrats, yeah that Velvet Red is saucey looking.

Re: Picked up my new 2016 Summit last night :D

Dave,

Love it! I'm about to order a new jeep. My wife has a 2014 overland granite. I'm looking at a summit v8 platinum California like you got. What made you chose red? Are you happy with it? what interior? I am leaning black. I love the granite but I can't have the same color in my garage.

Why did you change tires? I just put on Pirellis on my wifes overland.

No problems at all with the electric steering. Feels more "normal" than my Kia that also has it. Love the ultra smooth 8 speed. I wanted a more aggressive tire than the Pirelli Scorpions that came on it, with great winter capability. So far, the LTX's feel very smooth and comfortable. There's really nothing wrong with the Scorpions for most people, but I knew there would only be one set of tires on it for the duration of the lease, and I'm very particular on what I want.
I went with the black interior. Every other Summit in the country seems to have the dark sienna, which looks orange to me.

Man, that's an awesome combo, velvet with black interior Summit!! Awesome! Just curious, what are you doing with the original tires? Keeping them or maybe selling?

I sold them to Discount as part of the new tire purchase. Didn't get as much as if I sold them myself, but couldn't be bothered with doing that

so what do they give you for a brand new unused take off like that? Scorpions are a decent tire did they give $100 each or not that good? The Forteras were practically worthless I think I got $20 a piece for them with 10k miles on them lol guess it makes sense they are the lowest cost tire in that size category. guy said everybody takes em off but no one puts them on or something like that.

I got $400 on Craiglist for my Fortera's but they had under 20 miles on them.

Id say getting $400 was excellent for a fortera take off they are a cheap tire to start. I probably could have done better if I had taken the time to try and sell my 10k take offs online maybe got $200 out of them but a private local sell on used take offs is not always quick and for $100 bucks more not worth to me trying to ship so didn't mess with it and just dumped them. My mistake was putting the 10k on the forteras in the first place I should have just gone straight to the Defender like Driver Dave did.

They gave me $90/ea, which was $40 more than the dealer offered. Their price on the LTX's was also cheaper than even Tirerack at $210/ea. And Discount has the best "after purchase" protection of anyone. Basically everything is free, including rotate/balance and flat repair.
