Summit Video's taken today

So I got a call from a dealership that i didnt order my summit from, and, he said he had a summit in stock if i wanted to come see it. so, i hurry down to get my eyes on this beauty. i took 2 videos so those who have ordered a summit can get an idea of what to expect.

I did this via my iphone. somehow it compressed the file when uploading it to youtube so it came out skinny. i'm gonna try again in a few min.

Video 1- around the summit and inside



Video 2- suspension adjustment



i have a few pictures i'll put up too

Chrome rims, really??????

(we all know they aren't but it just makes me crazy when people who's ONLY job is to sell these know less about them than the customer)

Re: Summit Video's taken today

Yea, it's 100 times better than i even thought it would be. the leather on the dash is beautiful. i thought the chrome rims would be a problem but they blend in very nicely. if the guy would have matched the price i had at the other place where i have placed the order, it was coming home with me today... i'm thinking about changing the mineral grey to black. would that put me back at the end of the que?

Yes, it is just the right amount of saddle. Some had posted it was too much saddle but that is not the case at all. In fact, now when I see an Overland without the upper saddle it looks like it is missing something....still looks great though.

The black is AMAZING combo.......haven't seen a Mineral Gray Summit in person yet though....

Re: Summit Video's taken today

I think photo 5 of the door is the most accurate color photo with lighting....

The only thing I wish they had done is to bring out the wood grain a bit more...perhaps highlighted the grain with a small touch of silver dust....

Perhaps you are using chrome as a generic term but these aren't chrome rims, they are polished. Not sure if it makes a difference to you but it does to some (me included, I prefer polished).

Re: Summit Video's taken today

The interesting thing is, I have a loaded 2011 GC Overland Hemi, Black with Saddle/Black, ACC Pkg, installed chrome fog light bezels. The price differential between a loaded Overland and the Summit (IMO) is not justified. Personal preference is a factor. I just would spend the extra $s for the Summit. For the most part my Overland is the same vehicle. Again, just my opinion. That said, the 2012 SRT8 is a totally different animal....!!!!

Re: Summit Video's taken today

There is a black summit on ebay right now. Has 37 miles which means its been test driven and stuff and seems pretty expensive but either way just thought I would post it up. Looks good in the pics.
