Hello all

As you can see this is my first post but have done a lot of reading and this place has a wealth of information. I'm picking up my new to me 2015 trailhawk tomorrow. It's only has the six speaker system and I'm wondering if anyone has swapped out the original's for 6.5"s. The reason why I'm asking is I have 2- 6.5 RF's and 2- 6.5 infinity speakers that I don't want to let collect dust. Thanks for any help and great site you have here.

Welcome. There are 6x9s in all the doors. So, you would need an adapter to use your 6.5s. Anything will sound better than the crap paper factory speakers!

Well I picked her up today and left my Santa Fe sport at the dealers. Santa fe was a great, but just not for me. Driving the jeep home I noticed I could look around while driving and it didn't wander like the Santa fe, also the seats are like siting in a recliner. Now for the not so good the power...the 2.0 turbo was kick ass, almost as good as the hemi ram I had, well almost, the 3.2 just isn't quite the same which I can live with but part way home it developed this squeak that seems to be coming from the rear but hard to tell. Bottom line is it's a very nice truck, nice to drive, great off road, comfort, but would be really great when we figure out how to put a semi in it.

That's the first I've heard someone complain about the power of the V6 in the Cherokee. You should go take a test drive in a Cherokee with the 4-cyl. Maybe you should have held out for the diesel... :-)

Not really complaining just comparing the two. If I had both in the driveway the jeep would be my choice every time.
