In the Jeep 'club' Sort of
« on: August 01, 2019, 09:13:57 PM »
recently bought a Jeep, the Grand Cherokee Limited, with a Hemi.  Total stock, but plan on doing some easy offered stuff, nothing real technical.  Afraid my money well is not that deep for the major upgrades.  What can I expect off-road?  How are they classified?  I see 1,2,3 etc.  I assume 1 being a regular road that is dirt.  What os the 3'boulders?  10's, 5's etc?

I may up the tire size when it is time for a change, I understand the issue of gearing and speedos. ut a stock GC will take what size? 

Got the base plate installed today, need to finish up wiring, which is just mounting and connecting the plug at this point.

Welcome to the "club," Bill. Sorry I can't help much on answers, but those Grand Cherokees do pretty well off road, certainly up to doing Terry and Frank's usual at Q. They're wider and longer, of course, than the Wranglers, so there may be a few snug spots. Of course a lot depends on the options, too, such as optional suspensions. Other than the larger size, they'll do just about as well as my stock Wrangler (it's not a Rubicon).
