So Traded up to the Trailhawk. We loved our 2016 Altitude but we were ready for all the luxury we didn't get in our 2016. We bought the 2016 with 25 miles on it and it wasn't loaded but had nav, AD2, and the alpine upgraded audio system. Being in northern Nevada we always want the heated and vented seats, heated mirrors and wiper defrost. So we bought a loaded Trailhawk. I'm loving the better headlights. The 2016's were damn near dangerous. We also want to start doing some Overlanding, so the 17" wheels, skid plates, tow hooks, and locker will help make that a better experience

Congrats. Living in the Sonoran desert of AZ I could not live without the heated/vented seats etc.
As for the '15 headlights, we just don't drive at night...:cool:

I don't drive much, so less than 800 miles on mine so far, but the one time I took it on some trails I found it to be an amazing vehicle. Now I just have to get some of those magnetic panels made so I don't claw it up on a trail. Even though they polished out, the brush left a few pencil marks.
So, I would recommend a good wax job before you take it out wheeling. I think if it had wax on it, the brush wouldn't have left any pencil marks.
Oh, and when Jeep puts a trail ready badge on it's vehicles, they can do just about anything you have ground clearance for.
That said, you have to take it out on some trails so you can be sure that 4 wheel drive system is up to snuff :unsure:
