Sitting at my desk, trying to switch gears during lunch, distracting myself from some meaningless b.s. going on in the background. My sister is thinking about getting back into a Jeep Wrangler and somehow from that I ended up on their website seeing how cheaply I could build a diesel Grand Cherokee. It’s bad enough you have to step up four trim levels in pricing to even see the 3.0L EcoDiesel listed as a powertrain option, but as I was going through the option packages details this stood out like a sore thumb...

So I get that prioritizing the ‘Trailer Tow Group’ in this package would affect other chassis hard points at the rear of the vehicle, and I realize that you could/should easily fit a shackle recovery point in the hitch receiver if needed, but seriously?.. The ‘Offroad Adventure II’ pkg deletes a tow hook?

No wonder automotive options packages are so effed up these days. They’ve got more in common with cable channel packages than cars with thinking like that.

Or am I just extra-pissy today ‘cause work sucks? I can fix that...
