Here's what I don't understand, they seem to imply that the eco diesel was ordered from the factory. To my knowledge, jeep has never offered that as an option in the states.

I also think 70k is obscene for a truck that has 35k miles, and only a lift kit.

Oh nooooo... Jeep started offering the EcoDiesel in 2014 in the states through current production. Really nice engine and gets 27-30MPG! Although maybe not with 35's.

I'm actually about to build one.

Is it a real Trailhawk? Does it have any traction devices?

I'm sure it not an actual "Trail Hawk" we saw this in Daytona in April this year at Jeep Beach.

So if it's a factory option why in the hell does this guy think it's worth 70k with 35k miles! Sure an air sprung jeep is nice but is it worth the 50k over what it would be with out it?

Yes, all true. I'm sure it is his "asking" price.

$45k is about the starting price for any Grand Cherokee w/ EcoDiesel, so this guy's initial price looks like $25k over that.

I read his build thread somewhere not too long ago. It's much more than "just" a lift kit. There was a bunch of trimming and body modification done as well. The price does seem a bit high, but from what I read, there was quite a bit involved in the build.

As much as I'd love to have something like this, as it would be great for the type things I "normally" do, I just find the Grand Cherokees really lacking in interior space and no real options for adding things like dual batteries or a spare even.

It looks to be a very sweet ride!!!
