Trailhawk in the UK

Hi Everyone

Picked up my TH V6 last week and so far enjoying the relaxing ride. Coming from a previous selection of coupes and hot hatches sitting up so high is taking some getting used to but god that front seat is comfy. The TH is somewhat a rare car in the UK with only 50 or registered in the country I think (all other Cherokees here are diesels). Already finding this site to be a mine of useful info. Got to get a few more miles on it to run it in so I can see what the 3.2 has got. No red front tow hooks for us UK folks and no option of black wheels alas but we do get a good standard spec to appease us. Not had a chance to take many pics yet but one here.

Any other UK TH owners out there?

Congrats on the new TH and welcome to JCC.

Since law requires no front hooks, are there any front recovery points?

Not sure exactly how tall your front plate is, down here I have slimline front plate and did away with the plate bracket and mounted the plate directly to the bumper with a nice clear perspex cover. Came out heaps better (in my opinion!)

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm not 100% sure but I suspect we have to do without the front tow hooks over in Europe due to some sort of EU pedestrian protection law but yes we still have the one on the back. We have a small plastic panel in the right of the front bumper and a removable screw in tow hook you can fix in just like every other car over here. Alas Dave we have a uniform number plate here that you cant mess with the size of but yep that looks good on yours.

The TH does seem to be a bit of an oddity over this side of the pond. I have kept an eye on them for a while and a few appeared back on Autotrader around 2015 followed by nothing more really then recently a very small number of them have turned up at a few dealers around the country all registered in the same month of last year, all with delivery miles on them, all with very similar registration numbers, nearly all white and all formally owned by JEEP UK and all very keenly priced. Where these have been for 7 months is anyone guess but I managed to get a good deal on one with 40 miles on the clock so went for it. A petrol 3.2 V6 will always be a niche choice due to fuel prices here but interestingly enough the TH is no longer available on the JEEP configurator in the UK so that may be it but only time will tell.

You get Nappa leather, full sat nav, Xenons, 9 speaker stereo etc as standard on it here. Only other difference seems to be that we get Yokohama Geolanders not the Firestones you get in the USA.

Welcome fellow UK Trailhawk owner. Great bit of kit. Got rid of the Geolanders for BFG KO2's and a stainless cat back exhaust as it was way too quiet for my liking!

Very cool! I can't believe there are that few over there - I feel like I have seen 50 THs just within a 25 mile radius of where I live...there are a lot here for some reason. That is strange that the tow hooks are a no-go - but at least they sell them in the best color there!
