Ouch! Great that she's alright, and good to know how well the JGC handles that type of an accident, but the loss of the coveted lifetime MaxCare is going to leave a mark.

RIP Bruiser.

My wife totaled our 2017 Rhino Trailhawk this morning. She is fine but sadly the Jeep is done. She was driving entirely too fast and slammed it into a bridge rail.

I am glad she is ok but I am heartbroken the Trailbird is gone. It had a lifetime maxcare warranty and only had 55k on it. View attachment 231243 View attachment 231244 View attachment 231245 View attachment 231246 View attachment 231247 View attachment 231248
Dang! She's very lucky to walk away. Anything high speed colliding with a non-moving object is always dangerous. Looks like the GC sacrificed itself, air bags deployed as the should, and the body crinkled as designed.

Hate that you're losing the Rhino color, but thankful you kept your spouse. It's probably my favorite of all the GC colors and especially in TH. My next favorite is Sting Gray (what I have).

Once the dust settles, what do you think you'll get as a replacement?

Thank you, The Jeep surely did as it was supposed to do. I'm very thankful that she wasn't hurt and in awe she wasn't.

For now she is just going to drive one of my play toys. The J Truck and the 48 are actually hers. She will probably drive them a lot more.

I'm not sure I want to jump back into another $800 a month car payment. We are planning on retiring in a few years and going full time in a 5th wheel. The freed up cash will allow us to do some updates to the house to make selling it a bit easier.

Everything happens for a reason they say.

255/70R18 Sahara wheels.

PSA:
Rubbed front calipers.
1.5" spacers to clear calipers
That created a Front rubbing issue around 20% steering while on parking mode and hitting a bump.
Confirm rubbing one Front fender liner clip going straight. I'll be trimming fender liner there.
No rubbing rear.
No issues on std height
Additional clearance super welcome while offroad.
I should have only put 1/2" spacers for the rubbing... but looks really good with 1.5".
3 days / 380mi offroad in death valley in December all good.

Took the TH to Uwharrie this past weekend for some laid back trail driving/camping. Fall in love with this thing more and more every time I take her out!!

Would have loved the TH, but couldn’t resist a limited with 4700 miles on it that i bought used. I’m addition, my kids would have destroyed the seats with food and drink, and add the fact that I have never off roaded, I stayed with the limited. Love the TH look and abilities though! What could have been! Lol

Day number eight of my stolen grand Cherokee trail hawk and no sign of her. Depresses me every time I think about it.

Im sorry to hear that. I’ve seen some people reach out to forums and car site like Jalopnik with pictures of their cars. Personalized things that make the car stand out. If you get the word out to more people, especially in your area, you may have more eyes looking out for the car.
