I would go with the maxliner all weather mats. I have a granite JGC Limited with Lux II package with black interior and they look great

Personally, I like the look of the Mopar mats better. The Maxliners are probably better mats, but the Mopar mats should get the job done for what I am using them for (they won't see much more than some rainwater off of my shoes).

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

Everything from JustForJeeps came today. I installed the Mopar mats and cargo liner, and they fit very well. I also installed the Aluminum Door Sill Guards (very easy install) and they look great as well. I am hopefully getting the Mopar rock rails and illuminated door sills installed this weekend (if not this weekend, then soon), and will post pictures when that is all done.

I like the look of the the illuminated door sills but wow are they expensive!

Looking forward to the pics.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

1500 mile update:

The Jeep is almost flawless, except for these very small issues:
-The leather on the front-right door panel is wrinkled, while the leather on all of the other door panels is smooth.
-There is a VERY occasional rough shift when coming to a stop.
-Eco Mode- I know, this isn't really an issue, but it is terrible and I wish that it wouldn't default on.

Now, for the real review:

Exterior- 9/10
The exterior looks are really subjective, but I am liking the design more and more.

Interior- 9/10
The interior of this Jeep is FANTASTIC. As a reference point, I would rate it higher than the interior of my 2011 Lexus GX. The quality is fantastic, there is leather EVERYWHERE, the real wood looks awesome, and the color scheme is great. In my experience, the interior of the Jeep is only substantially eclipsed by the interior of the 2014 Range Rover Sport ($80,000-$90,000) and the Tesla Model S ($80,000-$100,000).

Ride Quality- 9/10
The Quadra-Lift air suspension makes the Jeep ride incredibly smoothly. I can go over speed bumps at 20+ MPH without being jolted. There is a considerable amount of body roll, but given that this is a 2.5 ton luxury SUV meant for off-roading, there isn't any more than expected.

Cabin Quietness- 8/10
The cabin very quiet until you get above 60 MPH, and even then, it is not by any means loud. However, I think that my Lexus is still quieter, but I also paid $15,000 more for it, so once again, not a completely legitimate complaint.

Sound System- 7/10
The 9-speaker Alpine system is good, not great. Now, I am used to premium sound systems (Bose, Mark Levingston, HK, etc.), but I still think that the Alpine system should be better for a $52K vehicle. The HK system is definitely something I wish I could have gotten in the Overland.

Power- 8/10
The 5.7L HEMI V8 provides more than enough power. Personally, I wish I had more, but more is definitely NOT a necessity (more on this later).

Additional Thoughts-
It has been an absolute joy owning the Jeep for the past few months. I am completely satisfied with my purchase, and have had a flawless experience thus far. My 16 year-old son has been driving his two younger siblings in the Jeep to school on some days (when I am not using it), and I have no fear of it breaking down and stranding them.

I have enjoyed this Jeep so much that I am considering buying another (SRT this time) to use as my primary car (currently I drive an Infiniti M56x) or my wife's primary car (Lexus GX). I am also considering the Tesla Model S Performance and the 2014 Range Rover Sport Supercharged. I will most likely buy 2 of the above within the next year or two (possibly sooner) and my wife and I will share them. The Tesla is a completely different type of car, so I won't even get into it. However, the Range Rover Sport and the JGC SRT can definitely be cross-shopped. Here's a short list of what I have found so far:

Range Rover Sport Pros:
-Retain off-road ability that is lost with the SRT
-All-around nicer- more features, insanely nice interior
-Styling is different from Jeep (the SRT does not look that much different than the Overland I already have, so it would be sort of like having two of the same thing with the SRT)
-Better service

JGC SRT Pros:
-MUCH cheaper and a much better value
-Similar to Jeep I already have- I know I will like it
-Sportier feel (not sure if I want it, though)
-Doesn't give you that elitist feel that the RRS does

What do you guys think?

Now, for the real review:

Exterior- 9/10
The exterior looks are really subjective, but I am liking the design more and more.

Agree. The only thing I'd change is to powder-coat the wheels gun metal grey.

Interior- 9/10
The interior of this Jeep is FANTASTIC. As a reference point, I would rate it higher than the interior of my 2011 Lexus GX. The quality is fantastic, there is leather EVERYWHERE, the real wood looks awesome, and the color scheme is great. In my experience, the interior of the Jeep is only substantially eclipsed by the interior of the 2014 Range Rover Sport ($80,000-$90,000) and the Tesla Model S ($80,000-$100,000).

I actually think the WK2's interior is better looking then the RRS.

Ride Quality- 9/10
The Quadra-Lift air suspension makes the Jeep ride incredibly smoothly. I can go over speed bumps at 20+ MPH without being jolted. My only complaint would be that it doesn't handle that well, but that is not a completely legitimate complaint because it is not supposed to handle very well.

The WK2 with Air Suspension handles better then my 2005 4Runner with X-REAS Sport suspension. I love that!

Cabin Quietness- 8/10
The cabin very quiet until you get above 60 MPH, and even then, it is not by any means loud. However, I think that my Lexus is still quieter, but I also paid $15,000 more for it, so once again, not a completely legitimate complaint.

Agreed. Lexus & Toyota are crazy quiet. But the WK2 is pretty good as well.

Sound System- 7/10
The 9-speaker Alpine system is good, not great. Now, I am used to premium sound systems (Bose, Mark Levingston, HK, etc.), but I still think that the Alpine system should be better for a $52K vehicle. The HK system is definitely something I wish I could have gotten in the Overland.

Overall Agree. The WK2 sounds better than my 4Runner but it could/should be better.

Power- 8/10
The 5.7L HEMI V8 provides more than enough power. Personally, I wish I had more, but more is definitely NOT a necessity (more on this later).

From what I've read, the performance of the 2014 V8 is better then my 2012 V8. But I'd love the option to have the 6.4L Hemi in an Overland!

What do you guys think?
I'm also seriously looking at the new Range Rover Sport (Supercharged V8, of course). What I love about it is the near SRT like performance On Road while maintaining equal or better Off Road performance to the regular WK2s!

And Land Rover is coming out with a 550HP RRS R-S version that might BEAT the SRT On Road as well as match Jeeps Off Road!
If only the RRS didn't cost so much more than a WK2. But... you are basically getting the capabilities of TWO Jeep Grand Cherokees wrapped up into ONE Range Rover Sport... so the price might be justified!

BTW... here is the thread I started that has lots of info on the RRS:
Ultimate SUV: Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne?

Can you elaborate on what you mean by the air suspension not handling well? That would definitely impact my buying decision, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this.

What I mean is that there is a fair amount of body roll, but then again this is meant to be luxurious, not ride like an SRT. Honestly, it rides so well that I would be compromise any of the ride quality for less body roll.

If the RRS was $10,000 cheaper, I would go out and buy it now. That last part about buying 2 JGCs for the price of 1 RRS actually had the opposite effect on me than it did on you. I don't think that the RRS is worth the price of 2 JGCs, it is just not THAT much better. But, I still want it and there is a good chance that I will buy it anyways.

No problem! It is my fault that I phrased that so badly originally.

Sorry I haven't been able to get the pictures of illuminated door sills and Mopar Rock Rails up for you. The parts department at my dealer has not responded to a request for an appointment to get them installed. I am taking the Jeep in for its first service soon and will hopefully get them installed then.
