I highly recommend having the sensors and tires installed by a tires only store like Discount Tires that really know their business. Sears did mine and it was nightmare that Discount had to fix! You would think that with TPMS sensors being around for 10yrs Sears would have the proper tools to install them and know where to install stick on weights on chrome wheels and how to properly mount and balance tires but NO!!!

I bought new TPMS sensors @ www.tiresensorwarehouse.com for $79.80 set of 4. Part# 56029398AB. Same part# as Chrysler uses. The sensors linked up almost immediately after installing the new tires and wheels on my JGC. No activation of the sensors was needed.

The mud flaps are stock Mopar bought off of Amazon for around $65. The rear flaps have the raised JEEP lettering all black. I did trim the front flaps up 1.25" as I thought they hung a little too low.

What tires are you planning to put on? I'm very happy with the Coopers. They are as quiet as stock tires! I run them @ 36PSI cold and they run 38-39 PSI when driving. . Haven't noticed any decline in MPG.
I have been planning at least since April 30th, (found an old post of mine), to go with the Cooper DISCOVERER A/T3™ 265/60-18. I thought about going bigger than OEM but changed my mind back. Consumer Reports rated them highest. I also wanted a tire that would also perform well in snow, (I travel north every December for 2 weeks), and Consumer Reports rated them high for that and with road noise at a minimal and price low too, I knew it was the right tire for me.

I'm having the tire place down the road do the installation. His price for the Coopers was good enough for me to give him the business I just ordered 4 "Schrader 20398 TPMS Sensors" from Amazon. I think the OEM is Schrader.

Schrader 20398 TPMS Sensor : Amazon.com : Automotive

I guess the price at Tire Sensor Warehouse used to be lower, now it shows: 46.24 a piece before shipping and they're not in stock right now. Amazon beat them by a few dollars.

I am going to install other sensors on the outside so I can monitor the pressure from inside the Motorhome; I don't think there is anyway to pick up the Jeep sensors and rebroadcast to the Motorhome, I wish there was. I will take off the RV sensors when not using the motorhome if I have problems.

Edit:

Also, I am putting Rocky-road Outfitters Super Sliders on as well as Mopar "Deluxe Molded Splash Guards" front and rear. It looks like I get a break from my dealer on installation if I buy the parts from them.

I will probably proceed with other Rocky-Road accouterments as well, as they get made for the 2014.

Re: The official Wheel thread

Question about TPMS sensors.... On the 2014 Grand Cherokee I believe the OEM is Schrader, specifically the Schrader 20398 TPMS sensor. Is this sensor transmitting all the time or only when the wheel is turning? I am shelving my OEM tires and rims for many years. Just wondering if those sensors will still be working in seven years. I'm thinking now I should have just bought new service packs for them and unmounted the OEM since they might be no good anyway and I will have to replace the sensors when I put them back on prior to selling.

Re: The official Wheel thread

Thanks for the help. I just bought a wk2 and could not decide on wheel and tire size. Went for the 22" srt8 polished reps with teh 305/40r22 toyos. Looks and handles awsome. Will install a 1" leveling kit tormorrow to avoid rubing when there is a little flex on the front suspension. Here are the before and after pics.

When I use an image I simply wrap image tags around the URL like this:
(I added spaces after the"[" so the tags wouldn't get picked up.)
[ IMG]http://www.jeep.com/en/2014/grand_cherokee/images/ecodiesel-badge.png[ /IMG]

I believe you can upload an image by clicking go advanced and then clicking the paperclip icon.
I will try:

Seemed to work

Re: The official Wheel thread

I like the stock 20” rims on my 2014 Overland, planning on purchasing a set of Spacers to get the nicer looks from the back. Anyone know if I will have issues with the Tire Pressure monitors or any other electronics or safety issues with using the spacers .. Thanks..

Make sure you get hub-centric spacers and when mounting them, make sure you cut that little ring off of each of the five threaded OEM posts. It may or may not have these little clips, just watch for them because they'll prevent the spacer from mounting perfectly flush.

Won't cause any TPMS issues.

Re: The official Wheel thread

Just put these on 2 days ago. KMC XD Rockstars. Some say the rockstars are played out. But not in my area (Washington DC) and definitely not on Grand Cherokee's. And I think they look pretty boss too.

The Revo 2's are new as well.

Re: The official Wheel thread

Here's what I added to my 2011 WK2 for winter... MB wheels with Goodyear Silent-Armor all-terrains. Worked really well last winter. Added the chaos center caps cause they looked better, and wouldn't catch mud/snow behind the original cap.

This may be bad form, but I also just put them up on eBay. Pls don't IM or ping me here about them, though, because we're not in the 'for sale' forum. Apologies if I'm breaking a rule or something by saying that...
