Remember the spy shots of that white WK posted a few weeks ago?

We don't even handle those brakes. They come pre-assembed as part of the front and rear cradles.

Ask someone at Marysville Axle...

Sounds Great ... except the Overland still has Napa leather. It's the Summit that gets the plastic?

Does it seem odd to anyone else that the '14 is listed under build but throws an error when clicking on it?!? What management would allow that to happen?!? People would be fired for having something like that on my company website for a few weeks.

I believe the plant manager has a deep cherry '14 now. I see it leaving the plant everday I work afternoons (when Im going in). Idk what he was driving before this, but our old plant manager we had when the '12 SRTs were launched was driving a mineral gray SRT. We just got this guy less than a year ago. The body shop manager however, told me a couple weeks ago that his current '12 SRT is his last, and he doesn't know what they're gonna give him next. He was one of only a few ppl I know who never really cared for the SRTs. So maybe when he gave his reviews, they said, "Screw you a-hole! You're gonna love this Ram transit van we give your @ss next!"

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Doesn't throw an error, just redirects you to the 13 build. The configurator for the 14s is built and waiting behind the scenes to be linked in. I've been trying to decipher the pass through link code to get to the 14 build in price site hiding in there, no luck so far.

I remember Pat W. running around with that mineral gray SRT. Dude's a speed demon. He's worse than us getting off work!!!!

That doesn't happen for me...I get the selection for the 2014 models and then a white screen when selected that says "an Error has occurred"

Yeah, he was! I heard he went to Warren Truck, and this guy we have now came from over there?..

And McDowell doesn't like his SRT, but he sure did dust me up one morning on Connor in my Mustang. When we pulled into the plant he says, "I thought you wanted to race?".. I wanted to punch him.

That would be pretty cool... how hard is it for any of you guys to recognize one coming by? In other words, you know a VIN and a, well, whatever else you need to know...seems like it would be pretty hard to recognize pumping out the amount of vehicles you do.
