'14 Grand Cherokee Overland EcoDiesel in Granite

I haven't had a whole lot of time to post since picking her up, due to work. Here is the first decent photo I've captured, more to follow!

Re: '14 Grand Cherokee Overland EcoDiesel in Granite

Congrats man, the Jeep looks great! Also, where did you take that picture? I love the background. Lastly, I really wish I got the ORAII package on mine. The 18" wheels have really grown on me (partially because I have curbed the 20" wheels a few times, and I don't think you should be able to curb your rims on an off-road oriented vehicle) and I would have gotten the skids from the factory. Oh well, nothing that throwing more none at it can't fix.

Again, congrats and enjoy it. It must feel great to finally get your Jeep after all of that waiting.

Re: '14 Grand Cherokee Overland EcoDiesel in Granite

Thanks! I took it in the hills north of Dublin/Livermore. I agree, the 20" rims look generic to me. I really like the 18's, and think it gives the Jeep a better look.

If you decide to get 18's I'm sure you will find some even better looking ones! I'm loving it so far, and haven't noticed any of the common issues noted on this site. The only thing so far was a bit of carpet that was folded weirdly under the dash on the passenger side, and it was an easy fix.

Your "Trail Rated" emblem fell off.

Re: '14 Grand Cherokee Overland EcoDiesel in Granite

I love the Granite/Black combo. At first I was bummed about not getting the brown/indigo interior, but after seeing them both, I like the black more. Couldn't be happier with the Granite.

My jeep in fact never came with the Trail Rated emblem The dealer has ordered it, and will be attaching it soon.

Tested my hand at Plastidip today. Came out OK, but I have a couple issues. Having trouble getting the paint out from the middle of the 'D' and 'O', and in the process, broke the surface in one tiny spot, though you can't tell from the pictures.
