Just the pics I was looking for--thanks. I must have missed that thread somehow when it was originally posted.

I agree about the 20 inchers, I think they are the best Jeep wheels ever and probably one of the best wheels on any vehicle I have seen in a long time. I just like the black ones for a winter set to change it up a bit, which appears to be your thinking as well.

Re: Short-Term Review 2011 JGC

I have one other pet peeve. The keyless entry allowing just to unlock the doors by simply grabbing the handle is fine. However, if it is already unlocked it shouldn't blink the lights. I had this feature on my BMW (called comfort access) and it was smart enough to know it was unlocked. I like that it turns on the interior lights again, but the constant flash of turn signals is unnecessary. I know you can turn them off, but then you get no lights. You would think a car with a big CPU brain could be programmed well enough...

Re: Short-Term Review 2011 JGC

One Year 11K Update: Honeymoon is not over. Zero issues to date. Local Jeep Service has been surprisongly solid, as is this vehicle. Deep winter snow and cold, towing, high speed Alpine driving, moderate trail, city date night, gear and kid hauling - all good to superb.

Only features I have not embraced are: HDD due to gracenotes inconsistency, VR due to repetitive inputs and choppy functions, and Navi as Googlemaps on cell phone is easier and more effective. Hard to say if this is operator error or PITA functions, but just haven't bothered to figure these out yet.

Re: Short-Term Review 2011 JGC

25K mile update: still a huge fanboy of this rig after putting it through full paces in all conditions. IME this is a stylish and versatile workhorse of a SUV, and a home run for Chryco. I am even pleased with my local Jeep service.

Just finished a 1600 mile trek to Yellowstone, Teton NP, and the Snowy River Range WY. Hauled a 4k camper rig the whole length over multuple high altitude passes no sweat.
