My name's Steve, picked up a 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo for the wife a couple weekends ago, think I've driven it more than she has though. She & I are loving it so far, but I'm having to fight back the urge to tinker with it.

Welcome. Sometimes something simple like floor mats or a different tire will quell the urge to tinker

Come over to the dark side....it is a mans legal obligation to tinker and modify anything with wheels attached. Welcome!

2014 Overland Oiler, ORII, QD, Granite/Indigo Blue, rock rails, Cooper AT3's - oh yeah!!
Officer, these handcuffs are tight!
Just relax, they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while....

Congrats

I started tinkering before I even got the car - ordered skid plates and floor mats. Now shopping for a dash cam

If you are going to 'Tinker", Laredo is a great choice for tinkering.

Enjoy your new ride.

Is the Summit not a good choice for tinkering? I want to tinker when I get mine!

The point of a Laredo being good to tinker with is that there aren't as many gizmos and gadgets like on the higher end models. Summit...not a lot you can do with them. Can't put an aftermarket lift. Just a lot of electronics to them thus more stuff to break in the tinkering process.

I'm not sure what you'd tinker with on a Summit.
The Summit is like Clark Kent and Optimist Prime(kick you *** and read the newspaper to you).


However, stranger things have happened .

I'm sure I am going to mess with something. At the minimum, I will be putting my cool undercover police lights in there. Nothing that anyone will be able to see without really knowing to look for them. From that point I will move forward and start to get crazier lol
