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!!!
I usually buy from Kemna-Asa in Jackson. The owner is a friend of mine. Yes Iowa is really hard on me, then I just remember they have no pro teams and I don't feel to bad....jk

Scott, I take my apology back sir. Thank you. )
Really?



Oh how I love working in assembly.

I already posted all details that I am aware of. 3 different types of headlight assemblies. I have seen all 3 now. Still not sure what hack job you are talking about though.

And oh yeah, I'm back to work, did my 10hrs today.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hey 4jeepdiesel - if you don't head down to Jackson with Rupbre and stick with a dealer in the Twin Cities, let us know who you go to. I stopped by Roseville Jeep the other day to get a little taste of the '13's while we wait for the '14's. When I left I felt like a needed a shower. Definitely not first on my list for ordering my '14.....

Same with the NEW SRT wheel. At first glance they reminded me of the old '03 Ram wheels, but now I can see the subtle differences. And again, they do fit it quite well.
So, similar to these: Set of 4 New 20" Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Chrome Factory Wheels Rims 9113 | eBay

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Kindly asking our Jeep GC manufacturing experts: Would you see any disadvantage from pushing with the dealer in France for the earliest possible delivery of a GC CRD Overland?

The dealer wrote "Making a reservation now you can get the first 2014 GC imported to France". LOL, probably a bit of a mouthful! Anyway, I'll do the reservation but do I need to be concerned about quality issues for an early delivery?

I presume before the export models manufacturing starts you will have built many thousands of 2014 GC's already, so that the "first French GC" (LOL again) should have no infancy issues. Guess you have a good QC anyway, or?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The 2014 Overland Summit sounds like it's going to be really special. Hopefully they base some Special Editions off of it to give a less chrome option.

Sad part is that I can't see how they can do that?

If your order lines up with what parts are available at the time... You might get lucky. You might not. I just ordered up a nice Dodge Dart, fully loaded, even I have NO CLUE how quickly it will be delivered. It was listed as a sold order which supposedly have the highest priority, but if they don't have the parts, they can't build it, not to mention what else could happen AFTER build.

I do wish the both of us luck for a quick build though!

Quality isn't that much of a concern, as nothing leaves JNAP unless it is good enough to our very high standards! I have seen vehicles held off for so much as a very tiny, not even noticeable by the customer scratch on a transmission shifter!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have been lurking here for a while now and I feel it is time for me to post my first post. This is one of if not the most informative automotive forums I have been to and it is fantastic to see a few people related to the manufacturer contributing to the site.

Like many others here I have been in the market for a GC for a little while. Since I found out there will be a 8 speed mated to the diesel I have been delaying the purchase.

Anyhow in the last couple of weeks I have been talking to a couple of dealers here in Aus to see when I will be able to order a 2014 GC. The funny thing is I got two completely different responses from 2 different dealers which are different to what I have been reading here.

The first dealer told me there will be no 8 speeds for the diesel nor hemi , only the v6.
Confused, a few days later while I was working interstates as I had a bit of spare time I thought I might drop into the local Jeep dealer to see what they have to say. The response there was that they will only see the 2014 diesel in June / July and because of the torque output the V8 and diesel they may or may not get a 8 speed; and if there is one it will not be a ZF box!

I know the Australian CJ is distributed by a franchise but where are these dealers getting their info from? I wish the distribution here is own and run by the CJ itself!
