Re: The Summit has landed!

And generous storage around the spare tire....nice. The spare tire compartment cover seems heavy duty so should stand up well to loads placed on top of it.

Re: The Summit has landed!

Wow, Dan...congrats again and I can tell that you are pumped to finally have the Summit! I think that Jeep really got it right with this car b/c a bunch of us have been waiting, and even with all the time gone by, and growing expectations....when folks receive the car, it seems to continually exceed (high, and built up) those expectations. Really cool stuff.

if it's any help to you or others I'll keep you posted on mine when I receive it, and like I said I'm in contact w/Arrington performance (virginia) right now as I may just handle some performance upgrades right away (Corsa exhaust which allows for skid plates, CAI, etc.). I already have the Shark Fin, Weather Tek mats, and new shift knob. Great reviews, thanks again. You made me a believer of the Brilliant Black color...I was really leaning towards Mineral Grey for a while...

Re: The Summit has landed!

I was in the left hand turn lane a few minutes ago and as I was waiting for traffic to clear, a black RR with saddle color interior pulled up behind me....couldn't help but smile thinking how much I like my Jeeps and what a far better value they are (and made here too)....and that the RR or LR whatever it is looks a tad dated.

Re: The Summit has landed!

Congrats Dan! Glad to see you made it!

Have you spent much time with the iPhone connection? I have 3,000+ contacts, curious if they'll all sync.

Also, do they download each time or are they saved on hard drive after first sync?

My wife's 2011 BMW X6 downloads EVERY time. While it syncs 100% (thumbs up) it takes too long (thumbs down).

Any feedback from friends/family on quality of mic when you're making calls? My 2006 GC sounded great on my end when others spoke, but everyone always complained about the mic...said it sounded like I was talking through a straw.

Appreciate any insight - also, thanks for sharing the pics! Would love to see more!

Re: The Summit has landed!

^^^ I think it downloaded once...but not 100% sure. Will check it out though. Also, used the bluetooth and sound quality was good...better than with the UConnect in my 2005 GC.

Re: The Summit has landed!

Dan can you take a pic or two of your dash and seats to see the colors how close they match one another?

Re: The Summit has landed!

^^^ Yep....but they do match. I can take in the dark now but might not be the best until daylight. In the meantime, trust me...they match since I would have noticed immediately.

Re: The Summit has landed!

See how lighting conditions and the camera affects the color of the photos of the saddle interior....this is with my iPhone 4 which like most camera phones does not take great photos in low lighting conditions...

The saddle on the seats matches all of the saddle on the doors in my Summit...

If you have a flash or bright lights that hits the saddle at one angle while hitting other parts at another angle the saddle comes out looking different even in the same photo. These photos were all take within minutes of each other...the last one with a flash.

Hope this helps...

Re: The Summit has landed!

^^^ The first two had overhead lights on in the Jeep...so seat bottom looks brighter...the third one I opened the passengers window so I could close the door and turn off the overhead lights. The fourth one was with a flash (ugly in the photo for sure).

Re: The Summit has landed!

The ventilated seats are very nice...more pleasant than expected. But then again, I am in Florida. Definitely will be nice on long trips.
