One size does not fit all, so a generic plate opening is good.

I figured 2 or 3 would be enough. I guess not.

Maybe they can make an elastic one.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Anyone been able to snoop around to see what exterior colors will be available for the '14' GC?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm guessing they finished look of the headlights will be a twist of this..... I hope it grows on me.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any word on if the chrome body side moldings will be an option at least. That is the only thing I don't like on the refresh. They help keep the paint from getting chipped from parking lots and they look good with dark colors. If they aren't an option, guess I'll have to get moldings from the 11 - 13's and put in on.

Wasn't sure where to post this so I hope nobody minds...

So we can't order any 13's anymore and I'm wanting an Altitude with very specific options. Extensive searching leads me to believe there are only 3 of the exact builds I want in the whole damn country. I'm not opposed to buying away from home and getting it shipped so long as its a good deal. I did the same thing when I bought my Challenger a while back, right before a similar model refresh.

Anyway, I'm wondering if there are any more 2013 Altitudes coming out of the factory or should I get moving quickly so I don't miss the boat on one of these last three perfect (for me) GC's?

Thanks guys, especially for this thread (I read every single post while debating 2013 vs 14 in only 3 days!)

I'm wondering how this novel ends.

But they don't really do much for protection. Next time you're walking through a parking lot look at the doors on cars and where they line up on the car next to them. The odds of them lining up with the strips is pretty low.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

They will start building 2014 models just a few days after the last 2013 rolls off the line...

I reckon that is exactly what they will look like. Can't say I am a big fan thou and is the reason I have just bought a 2013.

If you're not interested in the new features MY '14 offers, then yes, I'd go ahead and make a deal on one of those '13s. There ARE still Altitudes coming out of here, but as Milous has stated, the order banks are indeed closed. Which means the rest of the '13s we're building were ordered in advance. However, many of these orders will be filled as '14s bc we're so behind.

If I were you, I'd use your knowledge gained on here as leverage in making a deal on one of the three. Dealers should know by now what's coming. And although you won't get as good of a deal as you would once the '14s launch, you should get something off.. Good luck!

Maybe not for that situation, but they help when opening the doors in tight parking situations or in my garage which is rather narrow.
