Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

The MSRP has nothing to do with how much people are willing to pay dealers.
I got my hellcat for 70K which is MSRP as I ordered it. I waited 3 months. Other people paid as much as 25K "market...

Re: Option to make side mirror body colored

I ordered a spare set of chrome covers and painted them myself.

Re: Lease vs Run into the Ground vs Replace every 1.5 years

This needs to be calculated on a case by case basis. But just as it is obvious that the cost is not linear.
You loose most of your depreciation on the day you take the new car from the lot.

Re: Chrome Mirror caps and chrome fog bezel install

You can't take the chrome pieces off the fog lights without removing the bumper.

BUT, taking the bumper off is easy, just buy a plastic rivet...

Re: Overland vs summit

I agree, even though I opted for an overland for mild to medium off road the summit will do just as well.
And just the front parking sensors and the HK sound system makes it better : )

Re: 2015 Grand Wagoneer

I disagree with you. I also have a grand Waggy mine is 91 and it is still a stunning jeep. The commander was just a failed design.

Also look back at the jeep rescue concept, big and brilliant!

Re: Lowering advice

It may be just me, but I like the way your rear wheels look better then the front, so I would have done the opposite you will and just raise the front 😎

Re: For WK2 Overland (2014-2015) owners: what is your opinion on the factory audio so

I agree with snuke, I found the bass to be the weak spot. As long as the bass is not to loud the sound is OK, but let the bass rip and it deteriorates quality

Re: Mirror Caps

There are 5 tabs that you need to get to.
You need to pull mirror glass, and open one screw out and then you can reach the tabs.
Look at wk2jeeps.com for the procedure or search here.

Re: Help with what size rims and tires?

It's not just the diameter. The jeep comes stock with both 18 or 20. You also need the right width and offset.
