The 18" wheels are growing on me now, especially when paired with a more rugged-looking tire. I might do the opposite of you and pick up a pair of 18" wheels and some heavy duty tires for off-road use sometime soon.

Thanks man! The 18" wheels would only be put on when offroading. The rest of the time I'll run my 20" wheels.

Changing the size of the tire will affect the speedometer, but not by too much, and I will only be using the wheels for a short amount of time when I use them, so it isn't that big of a deal.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

I finally got back in town and got the Jeep all cleaned up and ready for pictures. I also have tonight and all day tomorrow open to take them. So... any requests or ideas for pictures? I can also take video from inside or outside the Jeep, driving or not driving (GoPro HD Hero 2, Hero 3 Black Edition for driving footage, Canon EOS 60D for non-driving footage). The GoPro's take great burst photos and slow motion video, so I can try to drive through a puddle in slow motion or something like that if you want .

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

Below are a few photos I took tonight. I apologize for the weird look of the headlights in some pictures. The editing to remove the excessive glare left them looking like that. I have more, you guys just have to tell me what you want to see!

Exterior shots:











Now some interior shots. I think these photos represent the interior (Beige/Brown) pretty well in terms of color.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

Update on the Jeep:

At ~330 miles, it is still driving great. I updated to UConnect 13.19.0 and my unit is working flawlessly.

I do have 2 issues, however:

-My rear right tire is slowly deflating. I am going to call the dealership (Koons) tomorrow and see what they can do.
-As you can see in the latest pictures, my house is under construction. Unfortunately, one of the workmen hit the Jeep with something (not sure what) and there is a ~1.5 inch scratch in the clear coat. Does anyone know how I (or someone else) could fix this? It isn't a huge deal, but it pisses me off, especially given this is a brand new vehicle.

I'd have the asshole pay to have it fixed! Love your Jeep man, Granite with Brown/LFB interior is Sharp... how the hell do you keep the light carpet clean? Also you may have your tire check for nails and screws since they are doing construction on your house... Take your Jeep to a tire place and have them look at the tire. If there is a nail in your tire and the dealership wants to plug it, it's $45 vs $5-10 at a tire shop. If it's not an issue like that then take it to the dealership and see maybe if you have a faulty TPMS on that wheel...

Unfortunately, there are a ton of workers and I don't know who did it. They might not even have noticed they hit the Jeep.

As for the carpet, there hasn't been a lot of rain/mud to get it dirty. It actually stays much cleaner than I would have thought.

I might go to a tire shop to get the leak fixed unless the dealer says they won't charge me. Money isn't a huge issue, but I don't really want to spend an extra $40 to get my tire plugged. The tire shop is also probably quicker. Thanks for the suggestion!

By the way, I will try to get the shots with the front plate off today for you.

Cool cool! Yea that's true about the scratch... I'm OCD about scratches nicks and things like that so it would drive me nuts.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

Nice, looking shiney like the last 3, nice bokeh
What about some of the rear, straight on & 3/4? Or wack a wide angle on and shoot front on or the interior/dash from rear seat?
I like 3/4 pics with wheels very slight angle
