2014 JGC Overland Bright White

Hi guys,

Just wanted to post pics of my Wife's new Jeep. We got it a week ago and I was able to polish and seal the paint with Cquartz. .

We had been wanting this SUV for the past 2 yrs but held because we were waiting for the 2014 models. I was a bit let down that they did not have the mineral gray color, but white is still nice and very low maintenance.

When we bought the SUV I told the dealership to not touch the car. To my surprised they listened because they pointed to a new car that had just rolled in. This car was fresh off the delivery truck and still had the plastic on the wheels and all interior. We checked the mileage and saw 3 miles! I quickly took it home and placed an order for Cquartz and Opt-Coat.

Here are some so/so pics using my iphone. The interior is really nice, we went with a bright white color and tan interior because my black on black 2005 infiniti G35 taught me a lesson. I did not want another black vehicle, that would be murder, especially out here in Palm Springs CA, where summer temps can reach 125F.

I wrote a small summary of my detail methodology.

Wash: 2 Bucket+CarPro Wool Mitt+ Chemical Guys Wash & Clear+Iron X
Polish: Menzerna PO 85rd on LC Gray Pad
Paint Prep: CarPro Eraser (smells great and works really good, removes polishing oils)
Protection: Cquartz (polymer based sealant that is good for 2 yrs.)
Wheels: Opticoat 2.0 and Optimum Tire Gel for Tires

Pics

Good to see another "autogeek" here! Test drove the '14 laredo today. Much improvement over the '13 for sure. Can't wait to pick one up before winter!

Haha, I knew there are other Autogeekers lurking on this forum too . I was hesistant to post things like Cquartz and Opt-coat but I figured they might ask. You will be happy with the 2014.

Re: 2014 JGC Overland Bright White

Have an ordered black limited with lux II ordered and on its way but the pics of your bright white overland along with a few others have me second guessing my decision. Lol that white is superb and the extra features on the overland may have just changed my mind. Decisions decisions

Re: 2014 JGC Overland Bright White

The Limited is actually really nice too, the only thing I did not like about the limited was the bottom exterior was not painted. However, since your getting black its not even noticeable. You'll be happy with the limited.

Re: 2014 JGC Overland Bright White

Thanks guys, I never got to see the Maximum Steel color. I wanted to see it in person but the dealership did not have it. Only black, white, granite, and cashmere. I wonder if I would have swayed towards Maximum Steel vs White? Who knows....

Re: 2014 JGC Overland Bright White

Looks really nice! I have a white 2013 overland and have been considering trading it in -- wife will kill me probably. Anyway, did you do decent on the exchange or did you pay a hefty premium to upgrade to the 2014 model?

Thanks, my hope is that it will be easier to clean and hide the swirls.
