Before Driving - Exterior:
  1. Paint consistency (especially on the doors) in bright sunlight if posssibe. Also dust specs under the paint.
  2. Check the spacing between the rear liftgate and the vehicle body. Also check the spacing of the taillight sections in the body and the liftgate in this area. The items mentioned should line up and have equal spacing on the left and right side.
  3. Check all body panel alignments, especially focus that chrome trim pieces line up on door areas. If the hood is out of alignment with the body, there is an adjustable stop on the right and left side under the hood that may be an easy fix for you.
  4. Check under the vehicle in the shock areas for any leaking (not common, but has happened to a few apparently).
  5. Check exterior of side windows on bottom and rear rubber seals not being folded under itself, cut, or any kind of distortion
  6. Front and back lights for interior condensation (some dealers claim this is normal, - not sure on that one)
  7. Check the fender flares for alignment or bulging
  8. Look in all 4 wheel-wells for loose or missing plastic rivets.
  9. Check all visible grounds under the hood, and on the battery posts under the passenger seat for being tight. Not sure if this is still a problem, but was in some early builds.
  10. Check the cover over the rear lift gate handle for being bowed out slightly. STAR case no. for this is S1323000043 if you have the issue.
  11. Check that the lower cowling under the front and rear bumpers are secure. There was mention of the odd early model having them loose, and I think one actually fell of with driving.
  12. Check inside and outside alignment (as best you can) of the sunroof or Pana roof.
  13. Check rear window in liftgate for being set in straight.
  14. Check to see if a double press of the Hatch button on the key FOB opens the rear hatch.
  15. Check the cowl panel under the wipers. Should be smooth and should be flush at both front fenders.
  16. Check interior panels that they are fastened correctly. Especially seat trim.
  17. Alignment of the tail pipes. Drives me nuts every time I walk up behind my Jeep.
  18. Have them give you a copy of your vehicle’s PDI sheet. My vehicle did not have it done before delivery.
Before Driving - Interior:
  1. Did not have this one on my list, but mine has this issue on the interior cover for the Pana roof. For about the last 1/4 of the travel when the cover is closing, it make a fairly noticeable vibrating sound.
  2. Check inside the center armrest for manual park release having a red nylon strap hanging out? Apparently someone just had a cover missing? You'll have to search for more detail on this one.
  3. If you have an iPhone 5 connected via Bluetooth, ensure that it reconnects after the vehicle is turned off, exit and renter the vehicle and start back up.
  4. Check to see that the tire pressure on all 4 tires is equal and correct on the EVIC, and that they agree fairly closely with a manual tire gauge.
  5. Check the reading of the outside temperature reading. Lots of mention of it being far off at various times and I think this is still a known issue. Willx seems to have the knowledge on this one.
  6. Operation of Air Conditioning when remote started. Still an issue I believe, but according to Willx, it sounds like they will be addressing this one fairly soon.
  7. RA4 software version
While Driving:
  1. Check for any wheel balance like vibration or steering wheel shimmy at Hiway speeds.
  2. Check that the steering wheel is straight when rolling down the Hiway.
  3. Listen for a rattle that may come from above the gas pedal area. Possibly caused by the lower of two heater core tubes running through the Firewall vibrating against the HVAC box.
  4. Listen for any door seal air leaks at Hiway speeds. Might want to hire an assistant for this one
Here is the checklist Chivvalry posted earlier. I had pulled it up to look at as my arrival gets closer.

In the back of the rig there's a shade you can draw to "hide" or otherwise cover anything you have back there. It runs from the back of the back seats to the hatch.

My Durango didn't have it (someone either forgot to put it in, or it was sniped while in transit/at the dealer before I took delivery).

I don't really plan on using it much, but, I wanted to make sure it was there (else I'd never hear the end of it from SWMBO).

I *believe* the JGC comes with it as well.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I did not think the cargo cover was included. I had assumed it was an accessory.
I don't see it on my build sheet. Maybe it's included with the Summit?

***EDIT***
Nevermind...I see it. Cargo Compartment Cover (CSC)

It's been awhile since I sat in a Jeep, so I don't recall offhand if it came with it (I want to say it does, but I could be wrong).

And there's an insane checklist floating around here somewhere, it's about 6 or 7 pages long with purdy pictures in it.

See if I can find it and repost it...

I think I posted a picture of how it looks too.
