    I just bought a 2015 Grandokee Overland to replace a '13 Grandokee Limited that I smacked a street-light pole with; the insurance co. bought it and I bought this '15.. They were/are equipped similarly, with V-6, QuadraTrac II, airsuspension, skidplates, tow package, etc.. The best new part is the 8-speed transmission--the wimpy V-6 feels MUCH-more responsive with it--while the WORST part is the shifter.

    I bought my first Jeep when I was 28 (I'm 76 now), starting with a 1970 Wagoneer in '72, a '95 Cherokee, a '99 Grandokee Ltd. with the 4.7L V-8, then the '13.. I'm not a 4-wheeling enthusiast, but I use my Jeeps to get me where I want to go as a landscape fotografer.

    I don't plan to do much to this one, but five new 20" tires and wheels and new exhaust tips are on the way; I'll post pics when they're installed.

    Here are the new exhaust tips; they STILL look nicer than in this new pic.

    New tires and wheels today the 4th.
