Cupcake - 2020 V8 GC Trailhawk

Recommended Posts

So we traded in our Ram truck and picked up a 2020 V8 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. A huge shout-out to the amazing Martin Swanty dealership in Kingman, AZ.  There were by far my best car buying experience.  We negotiated via email and they were very fair with no games.  Then drove up and were done in 20 minutes.  I highly recommend using them.  The Phoenix dealers were playing a ton of games.   Ask for Chuck if you decided to check out this dealership.

 

So now a three Jeep family....God help us!    So now that Chris is busy on the other two Jeeps I have something I can do easier off-road trails with.  Loving all the fancy features and it is fun to drive!  Up next is a set of Animal  Off-road rock sliders. We  are considering their bumpers too but it gets pricey!

 

We have named her "Cupcake" for now as her coloring is Red Velvet.

Got our first scrape on them during the Dirt Gala trip. Glad we had them on!

New tires and wheels 265/65/18.  Nitto Terra Grapler G2. Had to pushback the pinch seem and trim a bit of plastic. Also installed the air link suspension fix https://airlinksgc.com/ to keep it in Offroad One and not drop to normal height. Still can use sport mode.  20201109_135038.thumb.jpg.dac876bf03b1f87a5836f2ad39123f1d.jpg20201109_135049.thumb.jpg.88de790613735e8edf889ebde4d21af1.jpg

We were looking at those same tires and Toyo Open Country but ended up going with the Bridgestone Dueler Revo 3

I looked at your link above and I see that Jeep refers to the lift as "Quadra lift".  Made me laugh, Jeep has a thing for "Quadra".  I've got a Quadratrac in the FSJ, TJ's were advertised as having " Quadra Coil" suspension.  Wonder if they have trademarked "Quadra"  😄
