:)Well, it was a week past the expected delivery date but I took possession of my first Jeep yesterday: 2014 Cherokee Limited with every single option except the tow package. In retrospect I wish I had gotten that if just for the larger alternator and resale. But I couldn't be happier so far. The ride is firm but steady with Active Drive 2.I love the Granite Crystal paint job. The tech and luxury equipment is all top notch. Tried active assist parking today, what a blast! It took a while but I was amazed at how it maneuvered into a tight spot. Drove around on some crusty snow which it handled with aplomb. I'm still getting used to the behemoth after decades in sports cars but the rear cameras and collision avoidance tech really help. Hats off to Milous and everybody on JeepGarage for the device and support. I highly recommend upgrading to Level 3 or 4 if you order a vehicle. Looking forward to being part of the Jeep Community!

Aldonola, I thought about the tow package for my 3.2L/V-6 C-TH order for the same reason, but didn't want the 3.517 final drive ratio with the tow package versus the 3.251 final drive ratio without the tow package. Not hauling a heavy trailer on a regular basis makes the higher drive ratio (higher revs for a given speed) a minor negative for me. A trailer hitch can be added OEM style, and the alternator can probably be upgraded if required, while still keeping those revs somewhat lower for daily driving.

BTW, congrats on the C-Ltd.

Stopped by the Edmond, OK Jeep dealership yesterday on my way home from Christmas dinner. They had a Granite Trailhawk outside the showroom and that color is sweet looking! They had even left the doors unlocked so I tortured myself by looking at every little detail of what I'm getting. If it ever gets out of what they told me today 100% Quality Control Inspection. Congrats on your new ride!!

After volunteering for several organizations, I can tell you they are doing a great job! Lots of work, little reward, except the appreciation of the members:D
