Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

You should do all the usual diligence tests.
Ensure the car is outside in the sun.
Walk around it, looking very careful at each panel for signs of paint blemishes. Many Jeeps have been found to have dirt in the paint.
Do the same inside, looking for scratches or misaligned panels. Don't accept "They all look like that"
If you have a RHP radio (with Navigation) check the version numbers. Ask how often they get map upgrades, and what is the current version.
Regarding the wheel profiles, there are 2 wheel sizes. 18" and 20". Depends what pack you have.

What is rhp radio. Yes mine does come with navigation. What version should the software be at and how do I check? Is there a combination of key press that I need execute.

Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

I recall Milous sending through a pre delivery check list some time ago.

Can't find it on my iPhone.

Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Search doesn't reveal Milous's blurb on pre delivery check. Would love if someone can hyperlink it.

Also what is RHP Radio? What should come standard? How do I check if the version of UConnect software is up to date?

Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Don't worry about the Radio type (RHP) If you have Nav, then you have the correct radio.
If you select MENU, then SYSTEM, you will see the information about what versions of software you have
It should look like this
Application: 2.126
Gracenotes: 4072
Database: HPT1-A1112 4.2.1
SDS: 237246

If any of the numbers are LESS than above, then the software is out of date.
I think the DATABASE version relates to Nav Maps.

1. Fender Flairs Allign and are not coming unglued.

2. Rear Hatch Glass is properly alligned and glue on hinges is not coming off (had this happen on my Summit)

3. Check that the seat stitching is intact.

4. Mopar Pedals are on right side up.

5. Drive the vehicle in tight 8's and reverse to ensure there is no grinding noise. (TC)

6. Make sure vehicle does not pull to one side or another (Alignment).

7. Make sure Side view mirrors are not blurry.

Please feel free to add your .02
Got it. Looks amazing and drives amazing. How do I tell if its my13 or my12?

Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Also, take a look at the front headlights, where the side guard meets the light. Some of the guards slide over the edge of the light, due to broken clips. If the guard is even all around the headlight glass, you do not have that issue.

Where is the key to lock the glove box etc. The dealer handed me two key fobs but it appears you need a traditional key to lock the glove box.

See the little slide on your FOB under the buttons? Slide it to the right and pull the stainless key ring. This releases your traditional key....more importantly for starting the car manually if the push button start fails. (Prise off push button in car to expose traditional key start)

Just a question how diligent do I have to be to accept delivery.
Did you make sure you got a warranty / service record book and Owners Manual?
