I am not sure what you mean, On October 9th, I downloaded the manual from the link you have shown above. I posted the page from the manual I downloaded from the link above. That is where I got the Owner's Manual. I clicked on the Owner's Manual Download Link on that page(illustrated below), for the 2014 Grand Cherokee. Someone here noted the new edition had been posted, that is when I downloaded it. Naturally, when I wanted to find the Torque to use with my torque wrench, I looked for the Torque page; I posted a copy of the page from that manual. Note: The Forth Edition shows a torque of 110 on page 534 the Fifth edition shows a Torque of 130 on page 538.
The User's Guide edition that came with my car and the User's Guide and Owner Manual 3rd edition that I had seen prior to my original post all said 110. As you said, the newest version of the Owner's Manual, 5th edition, says 130.

I went to Jeep's site to see if both the Owner's Manual and User's Guide had been updated to a 5th edition and to compare the two. Only the Owner's Manual 5th edition is available on Jeep's web site. They haven't updated the User's Guide yet.

It could be a typo in the Owner's Manual 5th edition or it could be that Jeep engineers changed the recommended torque from 110 to 130. I would think that if they had done this that a TSB would be issued.

Personally, I'm sticking with 110 for now until we find out more.

There's a thread about the diesel on the first page, it's really long, and someone asked about torque in it, and Milous said he just looked it up in the most recent Factory Service Manual (FSM) and all Grand Cherokees (WK/WK2) 2005-2014 are now stated to use torque on the lug nuts of 100 ft-lbs +/- 15.

Here it is: post #4873 http://www.jeepgarage.org/f73/2014-d...60273-407.html

So the question remains, why did they go out of their way to provide inaccurate information in the newest Edition of the Owners Manual. Someone spent extra time to modify the Manual to create an error...
