Re: Back up Camera

The park sense features are part of the Tech group. The backup camera comes with the comfort/convenience group (at least on the trailhawk).

Not really. The TH uses a different rear crossmember that has a provision for the tow hook. On the THs with the tow package, the hitch cross member also has this provision in it.

Re: Trailer Brake Controller Installation Question

Still looking myself. I can't find anything on this issue. Will probably have to wait until the service manual comes out. Luckily my small trailer is so light I really don't need brakes on it.

Re: bad wheel ding & now road whine??

I bet you knocked it out of alignment. Hopefully you did not bend something from the impact. If the tire is bulging then it needs to be replaced.

Re: Trailhawk tires

Are you sure it is 35? I thought it was 33 PSI. Running at 33 has no negative impact on mileage or handling. It also gives a much smoother ride than the 41 that mine was set to when I received it.

Re: A few questions......

The updates are performed VIA USB or cellular. I don't think you need the UConnect Subscritpion to do it. With this system Chrysler has the ability to push down Uconnect software updates.

Soo, lets see. A Cherry Red Cherokee with gold wheels, gold hood and front facia. Then do the hood decal from the TH out of red to match the paint. That would pretty much get the color scheme down.
