It is up high, but it is there, and it contains your quick start pack. The full owners manual will not fit there (for that matter, I don't think it will fit in the main glove box )

Thanks. Speaking of the owners manual, I'm trying to decide where to stow that along with the diesel supplement, Uconnect manual and warranty book. If you have any ideas, please let me know. Right now I'm thinking they are going into one of the bins around the spare tire. Not a convenient location, but those manuals take up a lot of space!

There is a lot of book there. Mine just came today. Thanks again for showing how to order. Fast shipping on them too. I think I'm going to put mine in a zip lock bad and store them in one the the bins by the spare tire.

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

Picked up my new 23' camper two days ago. Had put about 800 mi on the CRD prior to pulling the camper home. About 90 miles from RV dealer to home--some stop and go--some hills--some interstate. Averaged 16.4 mpg with plenty of power to spare. Camper dry weight is about 3800 lbs. I used to pull a very small pop up with the minivan and this actually felt similar but with lots more power up the hills and merging on the interstate. Way to go JEEP!!

Just did first road trip! My first 1,000 miles were all around town computer read 22.5mpg. Filling at station calculated 24.5 mpg. Just drove to effingham Illinois from Detroit Michigan 415 miles doing 7-10 over 72-80mph last two hours with 10-20 mph headwind computer read 26.5mpg manual calculation was 28.5mpg (gauge was just under half tank) seems like computer is off 2mpg

Use this as an excuse to upgrade your kindle/tablet/etc and load the PDFs on the old one and keep it in the car. Kindle with eInk would probably be best since it uses so little power and lasts a very long time on battery.

However, he is saying that the distance the rear driver's door extends beyond the body, about 3/16", falls within Jeep/Chrysler's dimensional limit specs for gaps/flush fits. Says the same for the Liftgate which extends beyond the body about 3X further on the driver's side, 0.108", than on the passenger side, 0.040". Ditto for the variance in the gaps between the body taillamp and lift gate taillamp assemblies, 0.187" on driver's side vs 0.110" on passenger side.

I was given a copy of the dimensional specification that I will scan and post after I've had a chance to compare my measurements with the specs.

Will they fit in the front door lower storage bins if you split them up putting some in the driver side and some in the passenger side?
