Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The other thing I wonder is did the people who had to wait so long order right when the banks opened, or did they wait a while, at which point there were already tons of orders placed and they were in the back of the line...?

HOPE!

HOPE!
Orders are handled in alphabetical order, based on the middle initial of the owner of the dealership that placed the order.
So shop around and find someone whose middle name is Al, not Sal.

Do you guys think that it actually is higher. I don't think so. This is ground clearance so I would imagine something that was sticking our (most likely related to old tranny) was flatten a bit and you gain a little bit more clearance.

I don't think they would raise the Jeep. To many issues with stability, handling, fuel economy, etc.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have been lurking for awhile, so figure now is as good a time as any for my first post. This forum is great, love all the information! Thanks! My appreciation of Jeeps started with riding in my Grandfather's 1946 Willys. It still runs! My first and only Jeep was a 1996 Cherokee that gave me nothing but trouble. Currently driving a 2004 4Runner and am looking to put an SRT my driveway. I cant wait for the reveal.

Just sharing my experience....back when we ordered the info we had indicated that the SRT's were going to start shipping by the end of July, some being delivered in early August. As you pointed out, that is not how it worked out. Hopefully no one ordering a 2014 will have to wait that long. I can send you the link to the thread we had going back then if you want a good read or think any statements I made are mis-representing the situation.
