Very nice setup!
Esp. the lack of sunroof, and blacked-out badging!

That’s a really cool vehicle!

I’ve always thought the Grand Cherokee was the most interesting vehicle of the SRT lineup, and probably the only one I’d consider owning.

Does this use a beefed-up version of the ZF 8-speed auto?

Interesting note:

As folks who had read my reviews of my 2016, one of my very few complaints was the MDS "rumble" or "drone" due to how low of RPM it engaged at. They've fixed that. You can't tell when this one goes in and out of MDS at all, which surprised the socks off me!

They fixed that by 2018, the only way I know mine is in 4 cyl mode is by the DIC. That's one sweet JGC, congrats!

I think it’s something with the exhaust. My 2011 Durango had no drone in MDS till I chopped off the resonators.

I believe you are correct. My 2015 SRT Charger it was transparent, same even with my wife's '06 Charger. Something with the 6.4L in the Grand Cherokee and the exhaust selection resulted in a rumble/drone when the MDS engaged, obviously I wasn't the only one who noticed it, so they've rectified it.

How would you rate the performance of that transmission, having owned one for a while? Any problems?
