Lmao Yea, I'm at work now. Been here for abt 2hrs now. I come in extra early on weekends..

I haven't been over there yet today. My next quest is to investigate whether those Summit wheels will be standard, or not. So far I'd say yes, bc I haven't seen any without em.

And I purposely didn't turn on the headlights of any Laredo's bc I didn't wanna struggle with trying not talk abt them. It's just too hard. I feel as tho bc Marlon introduced them into the conversation, he (or Milous) should be the one(s) to elaborate on 'em. But I'm gonna check on this later.. Marlon, you're on the clock buddy..

And I still have to find something BIG to give Rupbre. So I'll be back here in a lil' bit.. (In the meantime, gotta build some Jeeps.) Rupbre, look for a PM from me in the next couple days..

Yep.. The SRT has 2 sets of LEDs in the front. (Bumper cover and HL housing.)

I think the wheels would look nice and all, but wouldn't the off road capability be reduced (driving slowly past a gravel road?)

also could you put larger profile tires on them or would they be too wide?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Chevyboy_711, Are these the wheels are you talking about that look similar to the new SRT wheels?

Why would the off road capability be reduced? The Overland Summit already (currently) has 20" polished aluminum wheels.

Again, these are NOT the SRT wheels, they just look very similar to them. I'm not going to comment on wheel width at this time. But just out of curiosity, why would you want to put larger profile tires on a Summit? I mean don't get me wrong, you can do whatever you want, it's your car, but that's kind of a weird thing to do with the lux model, don't ya think?

Heeeeeeellllll naw!!! Lol.. Those are a lil' older than the ones I'm referencing. You guys know the ones I'm talking about! When the Hemi was reintroduced in the Ram back in 01-02, the 20" polished aluminum wheels that most had, are the ones I'm talking abt (for the new SRT).

Same as with the SRT to Summit wheels, these Ram to SRT wheels, are NOT the same, they just favor them. Somebody please find me a pic.. I don't have the time right now.

Hey, you guys need to go back to bed. Nothing to see here. You fools are worse than little kids at Christmas waiting to see Santa Claus or is it worse than Butters ( Southpark) needing to lord of the rings but it was really Back Door Sluts 9?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

^^^

Gotta love Southpark!!!
Why may I ask then are you snooping around this morning?

I know with the lower profile tires and offroading you definitely run the risk of damaging the rims on rocks/stumps, etc.... Also, less air = less cush so it might be a little harsher of a ride.
I also would believe that in deeper snow you'd notice less traction.
