1) The Red tow hooks are for factory and are red to follow the black and red theme over the trailhawk (the trim level of the Cherokee). It also comes with factory skid plates underneath and a webbing strap to pull people out with (or yourself).
2) There are two engines you can get. The 2.4L Inline 4 (the one I have) has 184hp and the 3.2L V6 has 271hp. In hindsight the 3.2L is the better engine to have but I got a stinking deal on this one. As for a DD the 2.4L does the trick. If I were to be an avid off roader then the 3.2L is the one to go with in my opinion.
3) I am a Business Development Manager in a Chrysler Dealership. I run the Business Development Centre (glorified name for a call centre lol) for a bunch of car dealerships (Chrysler being the main one) that are under a company called the Grande Prairie Auto Group (part of Auto Canada).
Make sure you get a good quality light bar, the Chinese knock off ones are cheap but they don't last half as long. Eep if you use the bar for off roading. Then there are different strength ones (brightness), flood or spot beam, double row or single row and straight/curved.
Never caught the swine who did it to my door. I'm waiting for the winter to be over here before getting it fixed. I wish it were just a buff out solution but some of the scratches are deep! So I'll have to get the door re-painted... yay...
Thankfully the fleet manager at the Chrysler Dealership (good friend of mine) has a customer that he deals with that does this kind of repair work. I'll get it at cost. Thank god.
