Getting aftermarket leather is relatively easy and it's unlikely that your dealer can't make it happen. Check out this thread for an example:

If shipments get released on the 22nd of this month like the latest e-mail to dealers suggests, I think we might start seeing people here get theirs by early March, which is only a month away.

Might see performance figures before that, the "media embargo" (presumably on reviews for the 2014s) is supposed to be lifted on the 25th of this month.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yes. Plant runs 20 hrs/day, 6-7 days per week. Sometimes we do run ONE shift on a Sunday.

I haven't paid attention to the ratio. I don't have to, as part of my job, if anyone was wondering why I'm always guessing the ratio. Hehe

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Need opinion from all of you. Do you think a brilliant black 2014 Overland with 2012 Overland wheels done in PVD chrome, and with brilliant black mirror caps and handles would look good? Or is the front end going to have too much chrome, especially down low? And then I should just wait and hope they make a blacked out Overland special edition of some kind.
