    Greetings -

    Going to move from Town & Country Ltd and Cherokee Overland to new Compass and Renegade

    - Both will be probably Limiteds, to get the 8.4" navigation console and both with Trailer package (for HD components but also to fit a hitch cargo tray for hauling gravel, fertilizer, dead things, etc.
    - planning to get "safety" and "comfort" packages for LED headlights, adaptive cruise, etc. Just would like some input as to whether anything has been left out, that should be.

    We're on the Florida panhandle's Emerald Coast so will get heavily tinted windows, light paint and no sun/moon glass/panels (when it's not blistering sun it's torrential rain).

    We'd rather have something and not need it than wish we'd had it later. Any/all inputs welcome!

    Downsizing ok but losing some utility and trail capability?

    Well, thought about retaining the off-road capability but haven't risked anything for the past 3 years. Only high points around here are dunes and the only challenge has been getting out of loose sand - so, something tamer will see more utility. Age lowers bars.
    And, on the Compass, to push the point, Milady has just about decided on a Voyager if she can load it past the "tradesman" level. For some reason she does not care for the new Pacifica styling. She was probably frightened by a kitchen appliance in her childhood.
    In any event, she has until Friday to change her mind (again).
