Mine were the same. I reset them so they were rolled neatly flush with the window (not tucked in). I did this outside in the sun so they were more malleable. I then didn't use the windows for 2 days and they haven't moved. I thought this was a bit odd and what concerned me more, was the potential for water to get in. Not sure I did the right thing, but it just looked wrong.

Under Seat Storage

Well this is an update on the bin under the passenger seat, for those of us who don't have the Air lift suspension we can utilise this bin space.

The size of this bin is approximately 260mm wide x 170 mm deep x 345mm long and the useable area after my modification is 180mm long x 260 W x 170 Deep, plenty of room for a first aid kit etc.

When I opened the bin cover I found a small electrical box with a couple of attachments, it was not secured, it was simply hanging there, its correct location is in the front area of the bin where it slides into a plastic bracket assembly.

I removed the plastic bracket assembly and cut it in two as it serves little purpose, I reinstalled the front half (clips in) and slid the electrical box into place at the front of the bracket. Everything is now secure and I have gained some additional storage and as you can see this is where I have put my first aid kit.
If you wanted more space than you could easily Velcro attach the lightweight electrical box into place and dispose of the plastic bracket assembly..
Also as a matter of interest I have included a photo of the Battery Compartment which is under the drivers seat.

I suppose it makes up for the lost space in the glove box.....possibly an alternative place to put the CD player...

Mopar Sill Plates

My Sill plates arrived today and I thought I would attach a couple of photos of the plates fitted into place.

I think it is a great shame that jeep don't fit these at the factory as the door sills on the GC are very wide and would be easily scratched with constant use of shoes / boots going in and out through the door.

The quality of the plates is very good and in my opinion a must have item for your GC. Fitting is straight forward, but watch that double sided tape, its a bitc# once it's in place or just touches the sill as it sticks incredibly fast.

My advice is to use some masking tape on each side of the sill to centralise the Sill Plate, buy some extra alcohol pads for pre clean (they only give you two very small pads for the four doors) and then make sure the leading edge is in place first before sticking the top part down, once stuck it is impossible to remove the plate without damaging it.

Hope this advice has been of assistance.

Me.

Based in Perth. Still Waiting for nudge bar and reversing camera. Was called today to say all now arrived. Booking probably next week.

Hopefully, three (3) pics will appear with glass up showing the rubber seals. Hopefully this is of use to you. Will next send two pics with glass down next.

I think they will come out sideways again. Sorry about that. Managed three with open windows showing the rubber window seals. Are yours like these?

Adriwood,
Please post pics of the nudge bar when fitted. I was considering same but was a bit worried it would spoil the chrome lines. This MY14 has such sexy curvy chrome lines and grille that I am worried of braking those visual shiny curves. I feel for guys that, through necessity, need to fit the heavy full bull bars because, unfortunately, those bull bars completely remove all the beauty of this car. However, those bull bars are still preferable to the damage that could occur should one hit a Roo.

It's Winter with day temps often in single figures here so have not been able to drive it with the roof open but having driven my Overland now for 2 months with a sunroof I will never close it over (unless Summer heat forces it upon us). It is so good, we love the light that bathes us. On the odd occasion we have closed the roof we quickly open the cover again because it feels so closed in and dark now.
It's a tough one webber, that's for sure!

I'm going to test out the v6 petrol tomorrow. If it fits the bill, I might well be ordering the Overland and not have to make that tough decision!!

Thanks Butts_Oz, I appreciate the technique so it look like I will have the truck out in the sun tomorrow morning. Thankfully there is no rain forecast soon

Love the door sill protectors, I have them on mine and I agree the sills are very wide. Combine this with my rock rails and you need to put a foot down on the rock rails to be able to get in and out. I'll post a similar photo to your photo tomorrow, after I finish doing the rubber seals around my windows
