    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!!!

                There is a Russian outfit who makes wide body kits for GC/SRT that are pretty wild.
                I was thinking the same thing- $70,000 is a little high if you ask me. It's cool, but a little overpriced.

                    Ben: are you building a 2016? I read that Chrysler finally pulled the diesel from their site today on the 2017 build tool. I guess they aren't going to get it certified for 2017 after all.

                      Wow! Really?? That is interesting. I guess if I do build one, it will have to be a used one.
