That's exactly what I thought, I just miss-read the section about touching the White SRT as the vehicle, and it made me double think the DCR thing.

Hi All, just wanted to see if anyone has the same issue with the plastic trim just inside of the tailgate - there is a fair bit of bounch / movement here - almost like some support underneath is missing.
Appreciate if anyone is able to check theirs to see if this is just a design issue, or I have a problem.
Thanks,
Dom

I picked up the truck today after being without the radio for 5 weeks. They also did N58 recall and updated U connect I found something new. When I parked in the garage which was darker than the bright driveway behind me and looking in rear view mirror I thought someone tinted the glass but on closer inspection I found this.

Can see tint with clear glass around edges

More easy to see in this photo



How good is to have radio working and now Bluetooth works and favorite destinations and recent destination in GPS now also works. I now don't have to sing ( happy wife )

Sounds like per-delivery is nothing more then a wash and remove the plastic covers.

So why are we all paying some $4,000 plus dollars on Pre-Delivery when it is obvious they are not doing it.
I would have thought Prixcar would do the software upgrade as part of their contract, perhaps I am expecting too much.

It's a heaven sent option. You don't realise it's worth until someone drives behind you with their headlights on, and when that light should shine in your eyes, it looks like the headlights are dimmed - works a treat.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

What fuel are you 2014 GC SRT owners using? I see the manual says E10 is fine.
Thanks
Nathan

Mine is the same also, but I found that if I tuck about 25mm under the corner of the floor plate it looks a lot better

My plastic trim is tight and firm with no wrinkles. Very snug. I think when they built mine, being one of the first for Australia they may have been more particular with the quality control because everything is just so straight and well fitting. No gaps, no spacings, no misalignments. I stare at everything trying to find something not lining up correctly but have nothing but good reports to post. Maybe they started "slackening" off once into full production.
