I wonder how much they'll give you for the stock tires.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm hoping a Benjamin or two will get the swap done. The stock tires actually retail for more but they would be take off, so worth less.

I'd rather pay a little to swap them out than curse the stock tires for the next 50k miles.

And then us poor buggers Downunder would be the FIRST to know whats going on instead of being the LAST to know!!

In fact Detroit is 16 hours BEHIND Melbourne so by setting up a JGC factory here Jeep production would have a 16 hours run before Detroit got going even!! A thousand units before USA even got out of bed!! Run that by the JEEP boffins.

And when the JEEPS were completed they can get shipped back to the States 24 hours BEFORE they would even come off the Detroit line!!
Thanks for the info m8's.

Bluey

8.42am Saturday morning here in Melbourne, a lazy 30c (86F) and blue skies.

GTG now, time for my medication!!
Only if we can get a Commodore and UTE assembly line over here in the states.

Yah, I typically set up a swap for when I get my vehicle. Here in the NW I've been able to arrange this kind of trade with Discount Tire.

I'm keen on the Bridgestone Revo A/T myself. Been running them for years, all the way back to our WJ QD.

I thought those LTX A/T ratings looked great. I may do the same thing when I find out what's really on the Overland ORAII.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does the Overland black interior have very light welting around the edges of the seats, like the indigo/ brown seats?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

PMD G8 Sir you will not want a Commodore after you have researched a GT, GT-E or GT-P Ford Falcon/FPV with the 335kilowatt supercharged engine. These are great Aussie cars but I have still ordered a 2014 CRD Overland. The Falcon is only RHD but an absolute blast. Regards Brian

At first, that's all we were building! Now it seems like just Laredo and Limited. Not sure what is going on.
