Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Death to the new guy!!!! Just kidding...I guess we never thought the SRT wheels would be on a different model, what a concept.

GCOverland, you are dead to me for trying to steal my thunder (not my fault Chevy or everyone missed it, haha).

Chevy - HOW DARE YOU give up a clue and not consult me first on who to give it to or to give it to me for approval..lol

This is good news no matter what guys. Can't wait to hear more or to finally see a finished product before ordering

I think that's great news! I previously owned a 2006 X5 4.8is and that SAV looked so bold due to its wider rear-wheels. I'm expecting the same effect on the Summit, too.

So by going with polished Alu, Jeep continues the current "Summit-DNA". Putting the SRT-logo on Summit-wheels would certainly be a miss-match.

Final question: So when putting the current SRT-wheels next to the new Summit-wheels, are the noticable differences limited to the appearance of the polished Alu and the missing SRT-stamp or do they also differ slightly in physical shape, too?

Great guess! I was going to guess that after I guessed the Brembo brakes but thought that would be too easy.

Anywhichway, welcome to the site & I see you're from MN. Beware, there's a couple Wisconsinites on here but you're probably more concerned about the Iowegians since you're closer to them.

Let me know when you're thinking of ordering & we can go into the same dealer and make them beg for our business!!!

Yeah, that's simply brilliant. Why not use something that's already there and obviously loved? Makes the customers happy and saves some money.

I never thought about this happening either. It was more "hoping" but certainly not expecting. Sure, you always have the option to buy those wheels and put them on later - but to me, that wouldn't have been the same. Now, they really BELONG on the Summit..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just left work.. Got off a while ago, but decided to take another trip to the other side of the world to check a few things out for you guys. So here we go (in order);

1.) I've got good news and bad news; Last week I jumped the gun and said the Alpine was returning for '14. Now this may turn out to be true, but the bad news is what I saw last week was NOT a 2014 Alpine Edition SRT8. BUT - the good news is that what I saw last week was not a 2014 Alpine edition SRT8. So again, I apologize. But on this I'm happy to be wrong. Bc this means that the Alpine (if it does indeed return) could potentially be even badder than this bright white beast I've been dreaming abt for a week, and may, idk, get some goodies that make it SPECIAL!!! (And not just some black accents and black chrome wheels. )

2.) Marlon was right! Again, "MARLON MR. KNOW IT ALL _JB2" was right! Lol.. There IS another headlight, ASIDE from that hack job junk we both saw awhile back. I'll let him give you all the details abt it when he gets back to work. (Sorry bro.. I missed this last week. Please find it within yourself to forgive me, as I have sinned... Scott, I take my apology back sir. Thank you. )

3.) ... Stay tuned.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm guessing this is the comparable wheel for the srt that chevy says resembles the new srt wheel, if so, it is bad ass and will look killer on the new SRT's.
