I think they are made to our request BUT if something goes wrong or a dealer makes a blue they try and cover it up or remedy the problem behind the scenes by trying to match the original requested order with a bulk stock vehicle to get themselves out of trouble.
I am sure Milous can confirm how it works.
Ohh not sure ? Thought I read somewhere that's how it was rolling? At least for the start up stock.

Having serious colour changing thoughts .. Just don't want another very long wait .. Should it not be happening that way, I wouldn't worry

I have also attached some images.

Webber, they might look good on your 2014 White GC and seeing you like chrome....?

Enjoy and regards..................JosephR

Coincidently I found these today......

Not sure if they will fit the SRT's though due to the body kits, but these might?

Perfect example, we had a much sought after item that was front page of that brands website, no hiding it.
We didn't promote it one bit until it was marked as shipping in one week.
Well, they got pulled and we did not actually receive it for another 8 months.
So everyone got told about a product that they couldn't get their hands on. This equaled pissed off consumers and dealers all over the place.
You know who looks like the prick when an item is promoted yet not supplied for many months later, we do, the local distributor, not the actual manufacturer.
So, no promotion until you can guarantee supply.
I am dealing with it once again, something that should be 90 day production schedule, well, I won't see them shipping until September now.

Here are some standard features on my MY14 Limited CRD that I thought you will find interesting: power lift gate, SAT NAV, LED day time running lights, tire pressure monitoring, heater steering wheel, auto dimm exterior mirrors. There are many others but these same as MY13.

Ahhhh NO.
I just understand their reasoning for not officially launching it.
How they handle a lot of what they do is poor to disgusting.

It's JeepAU's handling of customer orders that is causing the angst. If they placed individual orders with the factory when received from the customer and allowed interested customers to follow their build using the E numbers then much of the complaints here would not occur.

By trying to manage orders from a pool of distributor orders ( allocating customers orders on a near enough basis ) they are trying to control the process and micro manage Never works in any industry I have seen.

I am glad my order is fairly vanilla without major option. I have a reasonable chance hey will get it right. They had better cause I am not going to accept and alternative colour or interior or whatever. Not when spending 90K.

Does the MY14 Limited also get the 20" wheels like the MY13 or has that become an option?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

G'Day Milous,

I have just become a financial member, hooray.
I have really enjoyed this web site and it has helped through the details of ording a JGC without knowing what it has.
I have ordered a limited CRD Cherry Red with Beige interior. The dealer has given me an E# of 5724826. Could you provide a build sheet?
Cheers,
Mike

MY13 Limited has tire pressure monitoring system and auto dim mirrors as standard too. Power lift gate and heated steering wheel came in an optional package for a substantial fee in MY13.
The LED daytime running lights should be on all Australian models as we get the HID headlights on all of them, and they're built into the headlight housing.
