    EcoDiesel Grand Cherokee TRAILHAWK on 35's

    Not mine and no affiliation but this is pretty wild looking. 35's on a Trailhawk GC.

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

    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.

    What options are you starting with? Build thread?

    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!!!

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

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

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