Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

No, pretty sure they all have this hard plastic behind the seat. I like it because the kids can't do as much damage. You could always put seat covers on, that would hide it.

Re: Attention JGC Overland or Summit owners....

I have 275/65R18 STMaxx on, they are fine in park, but rub a little at full steering lock. If I have it in park height I tend to manually put it up to normal height before maneuvering in car parks.

Absolutely, or perhaps its a jump jet or a tilt rotor, the riddle doesn't say. With more detail an answer may be determined, but the question does what it is designed to, generate arguments.
