Cool New KL (2016 Cherokee Sport

Greetings from the uninformed (and slightly confused....)


Fairly certain of what I have just not COMPLETELY certain.....the dealer tag stated (as did the sales guy) that it's a 2016 Cherokee Sport Altitude (NOT Latitude). Made the sales crew work for this one - didn't leave the stealership until 4 hrs after they had closed on a Sunday evening (10 p.m.). Equipped just the way I wanted it - 2.7 Liter 4 banger with the 9 spd auto transmission (FWD only) and the full Blackout package, not a speck of chrome on this thing! I'm going to have to go to MIT to figure out the sound system in the dash (recently received 4 books on that entire package - almost afraid to open 'em).
Runs like a sewing machine which is perfect as I commute between Myrtle Beach and Charleston on a daily basis! Still under warranty so not much in the way of mods I can do but I'm looking forward to getting into the tech section and seeing what other members have to suggest, like additional/better road lighting, brush bar for the front, fatter tires (largest I can squeeze in preferably), etc. Chat with you folks soon! Peace
The Croc.....

Welcome to teh forum @Swampcroc !

Congrats on the new Jeep. Yeah, the *Sport Altitude* is a special edition : http://www.jeep.com/en/limited-editi...port-altitude/

You mentionned mods and *road lighting* ; the halogen headlights are pretty crappy on these Cherokees... This should probably be your first mod, and I suggest you look into an HID kit, roughly a $200 investment.

See you back here soon !

Most of the Sport Altitudes that I've seen (Mine included) come standard with HID's.
