This 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Diesel was purchased from Jeffrey Ayers at Robert Loehr Jeep.
Professional, easy, and quick transaction- THANKS!
Bittersweet day trading in the Alfa Romeo Giulia that I had put a good bit of work and $$$$$ into but the new Jeep should fit our current needs a bit better. Funny though, the WL shares a version of the FCA Giorgio platform that was first used in the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio models and the 2.0L Turbo 4 is also derived from the Alfa Romeo 2.0 Turbo 4.....some are even manufactured in Italy.

Window mount and cord for radar were temporary solutions

Front windows tinted by Your Tint Girl (Heather Lee Dills, 706-498-0103) in Monroe, GA.

WeatherTech Cargo Trunk Liner for Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe - Behind 2nd Row, Black P/N 401530 for carpeted side pieces- (not to be confused with P/N 401517 for plastic side pieces, WeatherTech website) and WeatherTech Bumper Topper- P/N BP0053 (Installation Video, WeatherTech website) installed.

Valentine V1 Gen2 installed (Owners Manual, Quick Start Guide, Programming Guide, Troubleshooting, How To Upgrade) using a BlendMount (P/N BV1-2001R, Installation Instructions HERE).
Rearview mirror center trim piece removed first starting at the top, and then surrounding piece that snaps on to windshield mounts unsnapped/removed. Radar Detector Hardwire Power Cord used in tandem/spliced into Dongar Dashcam Power Adapter (10-pin Type D) for MOPAR Vehicles for a true plug and play solution. Push center release (screwdriver helps if your fingers don't do it) and unplug harness at mirror while holding the mirror side plug in place. Plug in adapter between the mirror plug and wiring harness, radar power cord routed to V1 location as plastic mirror surround snapped on to windshield, and then center piece snapped in to place. 15 minutes and done, more details in pics below.

After hearing a familiar story about issues with the OE AGM battery leaving owners stranded, I decided to proactively replace ours with an Odyssey AGM battery- an Odyssey ODP-AGM94R H7 L4 from FCP Euro with their LIFETIME guarantee (Odyssey specifications HERE).

Owner's Manual HERE, Technical Manual HERE, Ultimizer Charger Manual HERE, Warranty Information HERE.

Videos that show how these batteries are made HERE and HERE.

Great write-up on the process by 4XE forum member BilLongua HERE, great video with some applicable information HERE.

These are the steps I took to replace my OE battery but should in no way replace the factory service manual (with the high voltage drive battery SAFETY is paramount), pics below-
-Opened hood (should disconnect the drive battery),
-Opened rear hatch,
-Removed the plastic fusebox cover by pressing in the top/bottom tabs,
-Removed the IDCM fuse (5A) in position F76,
-Removed the spare tire cover,
-Removed the spare tire after removing the center retainer,
-Removed the (4) 13mm nuts on the battery cover/mounting plate for the tire,
-Put on some rubber gloves- just in case,
-Loosened the 10mm nut for the ground (-) terminal and removed the terminal/IBS assembly CAREFULLY TO AVOID IBS DAMAGE from the battery post,
-Unsnapped/Opened the positive terminal cover,
-Loosened the 10mm nut for the positive (+) terminal and removed the terminal carefully from the battery post,
-Removed the vent tube by pulling straight out from the battery,
-Finally, I removed the 10mm nut (deep socket) for the retaining strap/base plate (found an extra nut).

Installed the replacement battery, it helps to have another set of hands to hold the wiring/vent tube out of the way.
-When installing I was careful to slide the battery in to go under the fixed front battery mount,
-Reinstalled the retention strap/base plate,
-Reinstalled the positive terminal and tightened the terminal nut,
-Bolted rear tire mounting plate/battery cover in place,
-Installed ground terminal/IBS assembly and tightened nut,
-Installed vent tube,
-Snapped battery cover into place,
-Replaced spare tire, accesories, cover.
-Replaced IDCM fuse in position F76,
-Replaced battery distribution block cover,
-Remove and Discard rubber gloves,
DONE.
