Yep, but I don't agree with Wiki, I think the actual wavelength is closer to 457 nm, +/- 1 nm. I'll see if Chevy or Marlon can run a meter measurement...

Now you're getting very technical. If you want i can ask few of my professors about the actual wavelength of indigo blue, but I'm sure they will all tell me something different because of the purity of the indigo blue. That's why they give a range and not an exact number lol.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I actually think it sounds pretty cool, stepping out of the bounds. Its like I said earlier about another topic, pretty "bad ass". Can we hear some news about the lower end models Laredo E, X and the Limited?

Hopefully the Laredo gets another Wheel and Nav package.. I'm a big fan of those wheels you have on your's. There aren't many Laredo's in the building right now, though (if any). I was actually looking for some to see what has dual exhausts and what has single, and possibly why.

Marlon has been MIA today, but maybe he (or Milous) will have some more info on that shortly..

I guess Milous is still awaiting 2 source confirmation on that.

Random: I just noticed your new sig. The first thing that popped into my head was that old Evanescence (Seether) song "Broken" ft. Amy Lee. After you place your order, you'll be singing, "the worst is over now.. And I can breathe again..."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just saw this on another forum regarding a brandnew 2013 GC, which made a buzzing noise and dripped water into the footwell :
Problem finally resolved!!! Brought it in during a rainy humid day so they (Jeep dealer) can hear the noise and see the water.

It was the climate control condenser drain pipe. The factory didnt secure it during production and just left it hanging right underneath the center console. Its suppose to be routed down to a hole that exits the car under the shifter. While driving around, the water got shifted around till it leaked out of the passenger footwell. The water also dripped onto the ac blower fan which is what caused the buzzing noise.

They tied the hose down to the correct place and replaced the ac blower fan. All is well for the time being.

The tech showed me a pick of the hose with the center console removed. When he turned the ac on, water would come shooting out of the hose...

So basically someone at the jeep factory didnt have their morning coffee and forgot to route the hose...bad quality assurance...
Hope that for the 2014 GC production you guys on the floor get the best morning coffee and an extra doughnut each morning ... keep the quality up!
