Definitely! Though it's going to be a while due to the CRD. We need an :impatient: smiley that paces back-and-forth and checks his watch (or calendar, as the case may be ... ). We could probably replace about 1/3 of the posts in the Options and Pricing thread with that smiley.

I'm looking at:

Limited 4x4, CRD, Lux-II, ORA-II, Advanced Tech, 8.4AN. I want the light frost interior, but I'm torn between the white and the cherry red for the exterior. Originally I was pretty set on the white (I like that it stays cooler in this CA sun), but after seeing the red in person I'm starting to lean that way. I guess I can just make use of the remote start to get the car cooling before I get in.
Oh noze - looks like my plan may be falling apart. Took the woman to see the vehicles yesterday. She was quite enamored with the few minor differences between the loaded limited and the overland. Though it didn't help that she had to use her imagination a bit on the loaded limited since there weren't any limiteds with the lux-2 package.

So I had to just explain and show, best I could, what were the exact differences between what I was considering (the loaded limited) and the overland.

But she liked the wood on the steering wheel, liked the leather dash, liked the power folding mirrors (which admittedly I do also like), liked the dark piping on the light frost seats, and preferred the overland grill.

On the flip-side, we both preferred the black body molding (feeling it would be more rugged and hold up to bumps and bangs better) and we both preferred the black carpeting (with the light frost interior) though she reasoned that the weathertech mats I was likely going to put in would make that point mostly moot.

Ironically we both flip-flopped on the colors, but in opposite directions. Looking at pictures online, I had preferred the white and she preferred the red. When we saw them in person I preferred the red and she flipped to the white, though actually her real favorite seemed to be the true blue (which I admit looks nice in person). I just don't think I want that dark of a color in this sun (to which she replied, "we may live in CA, but we're in *Pacifica*" which unfortunately is only something someone from the area might understand, but to give you a hint, our yearly festival is called Fog Fest ).

Also may have flipped on which dealership to go to. I had visited 2 dealerships already and was luke-warm on both of them, but had been having a fairly positive email discussion with a 3rd dealership and had hoped that would be the dealership we'd work with, so we went there to check it out in person. Unfortunately the person I had been emailing with wasn't there, and the people we talked to while there were very ... uninspiring. It wasn't more than 2 minutes after I said I wanted the diesel that the salesman just walked away. Even though I made it clear I was definitely going to buy, but needed to work out which model and options so I knew what to order. It wasn't like they were busy - in fact I think we were the only ones there at the time, and the salesmen were just standing around talking on their phones. We were just left to wander amongst the vehicles.

When I finally got the salesman to come back so that we might take a test drive, I asked if we could drive the Overland and he said "no, we don't want to put extra miles on the Overlands unless the person is likely to purchase that particular vehicle, but you can drive a limited". Of course the limited was a base limited, so would be very different than the loaded limited or overland we were considering. Then he walked away before we could even say "sure let's try out a limited". So we left.

Sorry for the tl;dr. Short version - bringing the woman along complicated my decision making process, and I was pretty disappointed with the dealership that I had hoped was going to be the one we'd be working with.

Nautiboy, which dealership was it? Did you have a good experience at any Jeep Bay Area dealerships? Looking at yelp its been pretty uninspiring.

I'd rather not publicly disparage the dealership since it could have just been an off-day. And to be fair, I've actually had really positive correspondences with one of the salesman at that dealership, but he wasn't there when we visited. But if you PM me I'll tell you.

As for a good experience - yes. We drove straight from the aforementioned dealer to Fremont Chrysler. The experience was much different. The salesman stayed with us for over an hour, was fairly well informed and was more than happy to let us drive whichever vehicle we wanted, including an Overland.

And actually, I was expecting not to get much attention because I had already been to Fremont the week before and the same salesman had already spent a fair bit of time with me, and even took me across the street to see the additional 2014s that they had in their other lot. A really different experience than the previous dealership. They did try to nudge me toward the Overland vs the loaded Limited, and also mentioned they could provide me a *great* deal if I wanted a 2013 - neither of which I'd begrudge them for, that's what a salesman's job is ...

I also had a decent experience at the Daly City dealership, which is the closest to me (only 5 miles away). They were very friendly and helpful and were more than happy to let me drive a Summit. However they seemed a bit less informed than the others, at least as far as the diesel goes. But unfortunately they're not really an option for me at this point because I'm planning on using the Penfed car buying service and Daly City isn't one of the dealerships they work with.

Re: 2014 fully loaded limited or overland?

Nautiboy, driving the Ltd and O'land back to back, did you sense much of a difference between the steel and air springs?

Thanks.

Re: 2014 fully loaded limited or overland?

Were you able to notice a significant difference in the quality of the wood trim between the Overland and Limited? The dealer near me doesn't have an Overland, so I've had a hard time seeing an example of the difference other than pictures, which do little to highlight any difference in the level of gloss, grain pattern, etc.

The only difference I noted was that the wood in the Black interior Overland is glossy and I thought it looked better that the faux or open pore real wood. Just personal preference. We're still going Overland with light frost interior though due to the black interior being SO black (would like a grey headliner or something to break up all the black).

Funny you mention that about the black interior because I thought the same thing. I would have preferred for them to have the silver accent with the black and the bronze with the beige-that would have been a better match IMHO. But yeah, I was surprised that it was black on black which is rare nowadays

That was part of my concern. I'm between a few colors for the exterior (all of which could work with the black or beige interior) but I just don't think I would be happy with a the somewhat monotone nature of the black interior.
