One of Chevyboys guesses was correct & you can paypal the $5 but I won't be buying any MBest.
I was going to guess that unless you could get the '14 JGC CRD by Easter (the "hop to it" reference) you were going to go with the Ram! I have a pickup now and am anxious to get back into an SUV so I am definitely waiting...

But my other guess was going to be a '14 Subaru Forester since they announced the refresh of that at the LA autoshow. It is going on the market in the spring and Subaru has already published photos and released a digital brochure on it. Speaking of brochures, walk into any Jeep dealer and ask for a brochure for the '13 JGC and see what kind of answers they give you for not having any

Nobody here is buying a stupid Subaru, especially someone that works for Chrysler.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The reason that I was mentioning the '14 Forester is that (A) that's what my wife wants, and (B) sales should start sometime in the spring, after the JGC is in full production, and Subaru has already released information about MPG, trim levels, colors, options, etc. Whereas we are only relying on the guys here on the inside to get our info on the new GC. (and don't get me wrong I am extremely appreciative of the info!!)

IMO, Subaru makes a decent car and actually has a good AWD system. That said, the Forester and JGC are totally different beasts and I can't see a lot of people cross shopping them. YMMV.

LOL, I've got this one...

From Yahoo Answers:
A variation of the word "owned". The only reason that this word came about was because of a typo, and given that P and O are right next to each other. It is rumored to have come about from an early Warcraft3 map, in which the creator meant to have a trigger say "Player X got ownd", trying to use the "1337speak" variation of "owned", but hit P instead of O, thus giving birth to "pwnd".

The "3" is used instead of "E" ('LEET'-speak).

That is what decreases legroom, but as previously mentioned, legroom is the same since they're still using the same pad and there are no (major) floorpan changes.
I ask a simple question regarding front driver leg room and get the answers in amazing detail from people who obviously have an intimate knowledge of the construction of the vehicle.

I pose the following rhetorical question ..... Is there another forum for any motor vehicle that has the quality and level of enthusiasm both from Jeep prospective purchasers and more importantly, people involved in their manufacture? .... I am yet to find anything that approaches the level of enthusiasm and excitement generated here on Jeepgarage.

My thanks and admiration go to Chevy, Marlin and the other jeep specialists, and of course not forgetting that perennial teaser Milous for making the wait almost bearable.
