Ordered a Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Hemi Thanksgiving week. It took 6 full months, but it finally got here. Luckily it was built with every option I requested.

I have to say, so far it greatly exceeds my expectations. Super luxurious, comfortable, quiet, powerful. I love the massaging seats, and the night vision is pretty cool.

This will be my 3rd string tow vehicle for my 7000 pound boat, and a primary tow vehicle for my boat. But mainly, as most "tow vehicles" here, it will be a daily driver. And a very nice one at that.

I found the night vision on my Cadillac XT6 cool as well. Interesting to see the electric transformers that were hot, the basements of houses in the winter that were losing lots of heat, the glow of the hay wagon tires as you follow behind in the dark, and the occasional deer. Six months may be the current new standard. Daughters boy friends have been on contract electrical work at the plant.

I'm not up on the new Jeeps. Does it have a full frame under it? Or is it unibody? Very nice BTW. Congrats man.

Very nice! Did you look at the new Wagoneer (no longer a Jeep LOL) when you bought this? Just curious how it compares, it's been getting good reviews. That Hemi is nice, it moves along nicely [emoticon]

Congrats on the nice ride. Looks like Jeep no longer designs the GC for offroad use like my parents '96 GC they used to own many years ago.

GC has been unibody since AMC designed the first model.
