Bummer! Those holes aren't there on the MY14 Australian model so we can't fit the recovery hooks. So my next question is, is that part structural and would there be any problem with drilling it?

Cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

IWANTANOTHERJEEP, going by the pictures in the installation instructions it looks like those holes you are talking about is actually in the steel bumper reinforcement. If those holes are not present in the Australian version then it would be easy to drill the holes in the bumper reo to accept the recovery hook spacer bracket bolts.

Can item D (tow hook bracket) be bolted to the chassis rails with item C (16mm flange bolt)? If so then i would expect that all is needed is to drill out the holes in the bumper reo to be able to fit the Mopar recovery hooks.

Yea, I couldn't see it on mine either at work the other day.. I'll try to pull it up on my girl's laptop when I can.. Right now all I have is an iPhone and iPad. Unlike most of the techy's here, I have no use for a computer.

I just need to see if it mounts to the front rails, or the bumper reinforcement. Or sumn else.. I'll let you know tomorrow. (I'm off today.)

G'day Zillajnr,

Yeah there is no problem fitting the tow hook brackets at all. The front end is modified and the Aussies got the European front end in the 12-13 and I was hoping that the uproar it had created by not having or being able to install tow hooks would see them revert to the US front end like we got in '11. Unfortunately it looks like we got the modified front end again.

After doing more research into this, I'm not sure we have the same part(the bumper reinforcement ) in that location to drill out. It is such a shame because everything else is first class about this truck. These tow hooks would be the icing on the cake for me.

Enjoy your day off Chevy!

I think the only way for you to solve the issue would be to see the front end of a US model and then go compare it the front end of an Aussie model after you see what I mean from the instructions.

You guys at JNAP should be proud of the GC's. I've had mine for a few days now and it is first class. It has minor issues which will hopefully be sorted in time. I'm like a pig in mud

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I just noticed that the 2014 Cherokee includes "Stop & Go" in it's Technology option. Any mention within Chrysler / Jeep if that feature will be an upgrade to existing 2014 Grand Cherokees with the Adv Tech Grp?

The newer 2014 grand Cherokees quietly started rolling off the assembly line with the Stop & Go feature at the end of July per Milous. According to Scott, no it is not upgradeable to any of us with the old ancient one or two month old 2014 Grand Cherokees and several of us are not happy about that

That's extremely disappointing. Seems as if it should be a simple update. Wish they just held off until the 2015s so I don't feel like such a dumbass for missing it by a month. Woof.

Same here would have waited a month or two if I would have known it was even going to be available in the 14s but that's probably why it "quietly" went into production so the people that haven't bought wont avoid the ones already on the lot and so they don't piss off the people that already bought, so much for that.
