Knew there had to be another in AK!
Am out in Chugiak (Peters Creek), running an Atlantic Blue 03 Liberty LE. On order as of 12/16 is a 3.2L TH with everything other than the hole ij the roof and the premium sound system.
First Jeep was an original 74 Cherokee bought in Texas, followed by a 76, and 2 77s Cherokees (all SJs) and an 84 XJ and the current Liberty. Seemed right to get another edition of the Cherokee!

Another Anchorage driver here. Just placed my order for a 3.2 V6 Trailhawk in Mango Tango orange.

Picked up my True Blue Trail Hawk at Lithia Tuesday evening.
3.2 and everything excepting the audio and speaker upgrade and sun roof options.
Knocking on wood, no problems thus far with about 50 miles on it.
Crashed my 03 Liberty some 30 miles South of Glenallen last Wed on the way to TOK, pulling a trailer with a Polaris Widetrak 600IQ. Trailer has bent axle, snow machine has broken windshield and air box pod, and the Liberty has been officially totaled though I drove it back and have been driving it up to today. Insurance payoff - deductible will be OK and I have a buyer for it so I am buying back from insurance company .

It was 12 weeks to the day before I picked her up, and yes it was worth it!

al7fi...congrats on the new Trailhawk, my condolences on the Liberty and other toys. Still waiting on my TH, which has shipped. Lithia is telling me sometime around the beginning of April.

Thanks. It all worked out OK. Insurance paid over 4500> bought it back for 1400 and my friend bought it from me for 1500.

By any chance is Matt your salesman?
Also it looks like Jeep is sending a different recovery kit. Mine is a red bag with two clevis sets, and a snatch strap and gloves. All by Warn. It came as a separate package to dealer and my guy found it for me when it did not show in the TH.
It was 12 weeks to the day till I took delivery. And it was well worth the wait

Would love to see Mango Tango up close and personal!

Last weekend of June, pulled an A-Liner Expedition hard side popup camper from Chugiak to Byers Lake Sate campgrounds. Empty weight approx 1850. Estimated loaded, water and such 2500-3000. Overall mileage for trip 18 mpg

Just got back from a trip to the Kenai (Nikiski) from Chugiak. Overall mpg of 28+, at times reaching 28.9.
Using cruise most all the time. Max of 65 and whatever lower the speed limit was.

She has been a joy to drive and even after a 4 hour nonstop, no cramps, etc. Important for us older folk!

Windy stretch through Cooper Landing was a blast, even at 35mph. And no problem on the higher speed limit sections on tight curves, She tracks like a sports car!

Yep! TracktorAK in Anch, another in Whittier (sri name escapes me), and I am in Chugiak, on the north side of the muni of Anchorage. May be others I am missing - my apologies

There are multiple TH in And and a flock of Limited and Latitudes as well as Sports.

And the Cherokee does well up here.
