Yeah, I have the same question in mind. I think if you're planning on keeping it forever then it might be worth it since you'd just replace the film every X years. If anything I think I'll go for the cheaper option.

It might also be worth it if you live somewhere that your hood takes a lot of hits. We have a ton of epic construction projects going on around Seattle that are causing lots of rocks to be flung. I've taken a bunch to my neck this year on the motorcycle, so I can vouch for their ability to cause damage.

Well good thing you're not at the dealers, other wise you might get hit by the "after-birth" and that would be messy; I know from experience. LOL

Congratulations once again!

Check out the vendor section here on the site as well. They usually have some JG specific promotions.

Thanks. I used the website and came up with a couple of dealers for the Husky floor mats.. Not sure if they have them in stock but will check it out in the next day or so.

I have a couple of weeks before I have anything to put them in.

I have about 20K miles on a set of Michelin LTX A/T 2s on my Silverado. They are good in snow (my Ice-X's are better), good in gravel (they're real rock chuckers, though), good in mud, okay on wet roads, good on dry pavement, quiet, and they seem to be wearing quite well.

My ride is sitting in a warehouse in Texas, but I have a few pictures to share.

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

12 miles on the Odometer. Came with 8 miles, and 4 were put on during the PDI.
Now it is locked in a warehouse till I get down to pick it up.

I have a question, and am looking for opinions. There is no front license plate holder, but in MN, we have to have front plates.
What would you do?
1. Have the dealer put on a front plate bracket
2. Buy my own plate bracket and install (I am assuming it is easy - any install tips are welcome)
3. Mount plate directly to front

Would value your input

Idaho requires a front plate as well, but I never do it. Usually have it in the car, but police here are nice and give verbal warnings (they never enter them in the system).

If it looks okay I'd be good with putting it on... Maybe!

Let the dealer mount the bracket so that way you know or at least hope it's done right. I'm sure if you tell MG he'll make sure it's done right.

By the way it really looks good in that bad lighting. The only thing holding me back is taking a diesel for a ride other wise I'll get another Hemi if I don't like the diesel; but I'm just about sure I will.

I'd be inclined to ask the dealer to do it. I assume they have done it 1,000s of times and if they screw it up then they should fix it....
