I was testing in ECO mode. I will try with that off and in sport and paddle shift modes on my way hone and report.

I drove a hemi back in April while waiting to order the diesel.

It's NOT a cheap thing from our local guys, but they're a high end detail shop. I'm also going to make sure the dealership doesn't wash mine when she shows up. I'd rather have it detailed right off the bat to get it 100% and don't want to start with any scratches. It's a bit of overkill, especially considering she'll see eight straight months of rain, but I like to start off on the right foot.
An outfit called Skip Chips quoted me $799 which includes a clay bar prep on the area where the film is going. They laser cut the material before application. They also will remove the Jeep logo off the hood, apply the film then reinstall the logo. According to them this gives a nicer looking installation and claim no problem with the logo staying in place. They carry both 3M and Xpel, but recommend the Xpel as it has a 10 yr vs 5 yr warranty compared to the 3M product and they claim the 3M product shows some orange peel on it apparently due to the liner they put on it. Kinda irks me as I'm a retired 3M guy, but will go with what they say is the better product. He also said to make sure you don't treat the surface at all prior to installation as they want a clean paint surface for better adhesion of the product.

If you do like the weathertechs, disregard my comment. Either way, CONGRATS on the new ride. Looks awesome. Surprised you are posting less than an hour after delivery. It will be hard to get me out of my Jeep for the first few days
Do you know of any suppliers that carry the floor mats? I would like to look at some before I order.

Thanks

Yup, I'm not going to stress about it either. It's not really worth raising a stink over $10 when you're talking about a $50K purchase, though that goes both ways - you'd think the dealer would be happy to spend $10 to keep their customer happy ...

Ditto.

And like you, I'm hoping I can work it out so that I'm there right when they unload it. In that respect, I'm hoping that my SFU either gets delivered on the weekend or on monday. Weekend would be ideal, but Monday wouldn't be bad because it's Veteran's day, and while I don't get that day off my girlfriend and her kids have it off so it would make it easier for her to take me then.

Husky X-act fit
As you can see, they are laser measured and have an exact fit like the weatherbeaters and weathertechs, but have a much more rubber like feel. Also, no holes for fluids to leak down, but has indents on the bottom to hold the tabs. Also lots of rubber spikes to help hold it in place. In the photo below, I am bending the mat 180 degrees to show how flexible it is. I could have bent more, but you get the idea.

Unfortunately, no. But I have personally seen the Weathertechs, the Husky weather beaters, and the Husky X-act cut, and IMHO the Husky X-act fit are the best - not plastic, like the other two, but rubber, and laser measured for an exact fit. Now I just need my jeep to put them in. Get it in 9 days.

I like the Husky x-acts a LOT more than the Weathertecs I got for my wife. The feel of the weathertecs is really hard plasticy...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I feel like a new papa. Jeep is at the dealer, but now I have 9 sleepless nights till I get to "hold her". At least I can stop obsessing over MOTS (although it has been great).

I know it must feel like someone teasing you for the next nine days. Not a good feeling. Congratulations on your new baby. !!!!!!!!!

Sounds like your research has turned up similar results to mine - thanks for the confirmation.

The place I'm looking at starts at $695 for the first 18" on the hood, fenders, lights, bumper, and mirror.

They also do the whole front of the car, but that starts at $1,600.

That would be on top of the $325 for the full new car detail. All in all, a VERY expensive day at the detailer. I'll have to mull it over for a while before I make a decision on that one.

I'm curious if you peel off the film after 100k miles and it was pristine, would it be worth appreciably more than one with the usual rock pecks and bug damage? $1600 is steep!
