Finally checkin in from Utah. Been roamin around these parts since last summer, but finally got my Baby Trailhawk a few weeks ago after it sat at the Port for over a month....NOT due to software updates. LOVING the drive. No problems at all...no whistling, or odd shifting, or door lock issues. As mentioned in a different thread, getting a sunroof installed. They had to order it from Italy. Will take pics, of course, for the forum to check out...in case they decide to go that route. Getting a new sound system put i n on Saturday :). Decided not to install a hitch and use the money to upgrade sound a bit more...$865 before install price.

Anyway...hey, y'all . Oh, and here's my Baby girl...recently waxed and ready to roll.

*will post picture later, as my phone won't upload* dumb phone

Awesome! Congrats.

I bet you're getting a lot of looks and a lot of thumbs up from other Jeep owners, especially as they realize its a TR Renegade.
Took her to an audio shop for them to figure out a good system, and the tech guy was wowed. My comments I get is..."Holy cow...I've never seen one before!" or..."Yay, Jeep...you went back to the squared grill front!!!" lol

Looks great and welcome to the forum! Glad to hear you have no problems so far (knock on wood).

Any other mods planned for the future?
In the general discussion area, I posted my sunroof install story in one of the "mysky option" threads. I'll just copy paste it so you don't have to go lookin...

"Well, initially, when they thought it was going to be the Grand Cherokee sunroof, I was quoted $2200 which included the install price. I asked if there was any wiggle room with the price, as I hadn't yet bought the Trailhawk and thought they might bring down the price to get me to buy the Reney. So he dropped it 10%. But a week later, I mentioned a competing dealership quoted me $1300. They replied it was a lesser unit, but that they would give the one THEY ordered for me for their cost of $1600. So, I said yes. They've actually been a real honest dealership to work with--even talking me OUT of installing their speakers and told me I would get a cheaper deal at other audio shops. They ALSO said not to bother paying for extras like VIN etching and such. So, I trusted their price for the sunroof. Oh, and they ALSO beat my Credit Union loan...60 months at 1.9%...which actually even beat the APR Chrysler was offering as a special on the Renegade.

So, I paid the $1600 in full, and let them put it down as part of my down payment. It wasn't until 2 weeks later, when the first sunroof came in that they decided they didn't feel comfortable with it. So they did some research and found the factory, Renegade specific, sunroof and ordered it for me. And, haven't upped the price.

If it DOES turn out to be panoramic, I'm going to be OVER...THE...MOON with excitement. After researching sunroofs last night, I was certainly hoping it would be Webasto. So, thanks for that info, MJAB. I know there's a lot of aftermarket skeptics out there. So, I've been really praying I made the right decision, being a REALLY was disappointed the US wasn't getting the glass sunroofs yet. But, finding out it's more than likely Webasto, AND the dealership did tell me that it DOES come with the Lifetime Warranty...feeling good about my decision.

And yes...most definitely will post pics."
