Default Brand new and jumped curb

I just took possession of a 2018 Trailhawk and love it. In the northeast snowstorm this week, 2 days after picking it up, I jumped a curb in a parking lot. Speed was maybe 7-8 mph, curb about 6, hit on angle, no changes in handling. Probably just new car jitters but Im thinking that this should be nothing for this vehicle. Any thoughts?

Unless you see any damage or it drives funny/acts up its fine.

I would think worst case scenario at that low of a speed would be alignment... but like mentioned, if you don't see any damage and/or nothing seems "off" with the steering, I'd say you're probably just fine.

You should be fine, Jeeps are built to go over rocks. But do keep an eye on front tire wear just to make sure nothing is bent.

Thanks all, it's driving just fine. The tire suggestion is a good one.
