Very nice. You'll also be impressed by the resistance to weathering with the diamond package! No streaking at all!

That Windjammer 2809W might be a bit too much unit for your
Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L :eek: Whats the tow rating on your jeep?

Given a dry weight just over 6000 pounds, that Windjammer should be around 7000 pounds loaded up modestly.

Tow cap - 6500 lbs. Tongue cap - 750 lbs.
By keeping the tire size to a minimum, setting pinion factor, optimizing shift points on trans and keeping it cool and reprogramming ECU for the engine to produce more torque, as long as the frame holds out, I believe she'll do just fine. I'll keep you guys posted as we go on our travels.

I think what he's worried about (and me too) is a TT that long with a wheelbase on the TV that short is a recipe for disaster, especially in cross winds or semi's and other large vehicles passing you on the highway. :bestwishessign: Concerned.

Ah, we'll see. Thank you for the concern.
