Sounds good

Ordered the overland yesterday. 4-6 weeks to figure things out for the bra.

Got the safety package and 19 speak hk sound blind spot / cross detection.

Would have pulled the trigger on the summit but was not big on the wheels and interior but loved the front end. Not enough to justify the 3-4k difference. Just getting out of a $60k lemon of a vehicle so just really playing things safe.

First jeep grand cherokee since 1998. Might as well test it out for 3 years and then spend the extra if I enjoy it on the re-design 2019. Looking foward to the adventure!

Did any of you run a strip of clear bra along the lower door jab or install a door sill gaurd? Looks like that area gets killed with the in and out.

Re: Paint Duribility

2014 jeep srt....paint is still flawless. Only thing I've done is use optimum opticoat and gloss coat from new.

Good choice getting the Overland with those options. What interior color are you getting?

I purchased and installed clear Xpel door sill guards over the door sills. I got it from amazon. You can get metal grand cherokee door sill guards from any Jeep dealer or online Mopar/Jeep parts store instead but then those covers could get scratched up I would think.

I went with the basic white exterior (no tri coat) and tan interior. Very excited for it to arrive.

I've had the best luck with white. For the most part scratches are hidden and swirl marks are harder to spot.

Almost went with the black interior but black gets extremely dusty when the windows are down. The brown just stays clean. I'm looking for easy!

Re: Paint Duribility

Absolutely loving the Overland but im thinking this white paint was a mistake.

With no metallic everything that lands on the paint shows x10

Only have 600 miles on the vehicle in a month and every little rock flip up etc seems to leave and show a mark. My wife has a white Acadia and the paint seems to be much more durable.

Maybe they changed paint brands etc for 2017? Paint almost seems soft.

Will be interesting how long I chase the marks for before giving up.

I get it though , you cant keep the jeep in the garage and stare at it. Its transportation and its just a matter of time before every panel takes a beating.

Re: Paint Duribility

Seal it with a ceramic coating. I use C-Quartz from Car Pro. But there are many other brands. Your local professional detailer can help you out. I charge $500 for this application. Look it up on youtube or something its worth the investment. Just do your research and see cars that have it done that way you know he can do it correctly, if done wrong this could damage your vehicle.

Re: Paint Duribility

I used a coating from day 1.

Mckeeys 37

The protection and sickness is amazing.

I'm thinking the marks being left are from the coating taking impact and not the paint? A little quick detailer makes the marks vanish. It just seems there are more. Maybe the freeways and additional holiday traffic on the 101.

First vehicle I've ever coated. Very happy with ease of cleaning. I did rims and glass too.
