In October 2011, Demco offered me a free baseplate if I would bring my new 2012 Smart Car to them so they could make it the trial model for that year. I was picking the car up in Plano, TX and heading south to Conroe for the winter and Demco was north, in cold country, so I declined.

I had already spoken to Smart who assured me that there were no changes made to that part of the car since before 2008. I was naively confident that the 2008-2011 base plate would fit. It did!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions . After further research and phone calls, it appears that road master has come out with a fit for the Trailhawk that will work with theirs or Blue Ox tow bars. You are correct Steve there are differences behind the grill between Cherokees and the Cherokee Trailhawk because of the adaptive cruise control. Jeep referred me to Roadmaster as their reccomendation for towing but I'm still investigating the Blue Ox model before I decide. Either way I feel much better now.

Steve we are headed up to McKinney on Sun. to have Jenny's shades replaced with new ones next week so we will shout when we go by.

Herb, glad things looking better on the toad. I was collecting some rope lights together in case we had to tie that Trailhauk on!
Sold an old baseplate I had to a man from McKinney, Tx last week.

Looking at many of the video posted of Jeeps crawling trails on YouTube you will see lots of granny's and grampas. I think I've caught the jeeping bug!

LOL!

I had a 99' Wrangler Sport for 9 years that I bought new. I just like they way they look, and the fact they were "no frills," less stuff to break. I never took it 4-wheeling except to test it. Thus, it was "like new" when I sold it, and got my asking price. The buyer WANTED one that was stock, and "unused."

I sold it because of the horrendous gas mileage...I couldn't stop complaining about it.

Of course it was red, like my current vehicle, and the 2 vehicles before that... And also The Vespa I had until last July when I sold it to get the base plate, and tow bar for my Element.

Now the only color I ever buy any vehicle in is "Cindy Red."

Last September when I took my maiden voyage to my Dad's in my new MH; he said "I'm surprised it's not red."

Red is not just a color any more. It is Cindy Red. And that's just a fact, you STMs!

Okay, y'all, even all y'all, what color is red?
