With the Jeep as a wifi hot spot you could even do streaming video with the iPads.

My guess would be 375 but that's really just a guess.

I had suggested this for someone in the SRT thread..

a buddy of mine does this with his kids and he swears by it.

the cost of streaming video via data plans would be pricey and then some unless Jeep is going to offer an unlimited option.

I'm right there with you. Not a deal breaker but it definitely sucks. Even if the dealer added them down the road for twice the price the quality wouldn't be the same.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sno probably more leather vs vinyl content and a higher leather quality.

This is going to be such a great upgrade from my 2000 4.7L! More horsepower, more torque, more mpgs - love it, and that's just the engine upgrade. Thanks for these numbers, Milous.

Now to see if the delayed CRD ordering rumor is true or not...I hope not, because the money that's currently burning a hole in my pocket is getting uncomfortable.

True. But I could just hot spot my the 4g cell phone and everyone could stream netflix or whatever on 3 or 4 different Ipads.

Same set up I have, the Holder attaches to the metal on the headrest and holds the Ipad. I have had zero problems with it and works great.
