Add Blind Spot Monitor to 2011 Limited
 
Would it be possible to add Blind Spot Monitoring to a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited ?
Thanks

Anything is possible with enough money...however, I am betting it is going to be a heck of a lot more expensive than just buying the $1295 package to start with, which includes 3 other worthwhile features (IMHO).

OEM would be expensive I would think. I have seen aftermarket versions (Canadian Tire), about $150, with sensors in the bumpers but Im not sure where the warning signals are placed.

+1, that's how the BMW Driving Performance school recommends too. It takes a little time getting use to it at first as some have been doing it wrong for years.

I want this too. I want the SRT mirrors so I can get brilliant black and blind spot monitoring too.

So, does anyone know where the sensors are? Are all the sensors in the side mirrors for the blind spot monitoring? How would it work to just add the OEM mirrors - what would need to be done?

Your thread makes sense and I will try it cause the wk2 mirrors do have a nasty blind spot! old school has me using mirrors for centering me in the lanes.. I know I could learn, but is hard to teach an ole dog new tricks...
Most cars I've owned allowed me to see ole school way and had better blind spot coverage than wk2... I figured its there way of screwing us for not buying the adaptive cruise:rolleyes:

The blind spot are in the rear bars pointing out each side and also in the mirrors.
It would be a major PIA to retrofit the OEM setup. Be cheaper trading in and getting a better spec one that has the ACC.
