Good luck installing the brake pedal cover. The one for the gas pedal was fairly easy, had to use big a$$ pliers to snap that bad boy on. But the brake pedal cover...next to impossible! Getting the stock cover off is no problem, but the new cover...even using hot soapy water in 70 degree weather didn't do the trick...ended up trimming off some of the back rubber and used some adhesive just to be sure it doesn't come off.

These pedals do look awsome though once you get them on.

I bought these already (part #82212120) on line, and I'll post a quick write-up when I get them installed.

X2 on trimming some rubber off the back side. Brake pedal install is a PITA. Look good when installed!

Check out some of the install tips on amazon. Somebody suggested dipping it in hot water to soften it up.

2014 splash guards are the same as 2011/12/13 for Limited and Overland. On Ebay for $68.77 free shipping.

I did the splash guard install. Took a couple of hours. Instructions are a joke, but if you have done things like this the past you can figure out how to get it done. If you have no patience or mechanical aptitude for this sort of thing let the dealer do it.

You do need to pull away the fender interliners for access to install retaining clips (u-clips) ect. Don't be afraid you will damage the liners as they will go back into postion without any problem.
Crimping the U-clips a little tighter before you slip them on will help keep them in postion when intalling screws and bolts.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Mopar Accessories

Does anybody know where/if the "underbody" skid plate listed as part of the ORAII package is available to buy?

I looked at the installation instructions and it is really tough to tell. It looks like a Surge controller not a proportional one, so I would guess that it would not perform the same as the pickup ones from the factory (like the RAM). I have used a Prodigy P3 in the Durango, Mercedes ML and I find it works better than the factory RAM controller (waiting on my Jeep diesel as we speak). It is a proportional unit with a ton of adjustments to the point you will forget you have a trailer. it is roughly the same size and shape as the Mopar one but is quick disconnect instead. I have tried the surge ones and they are difficult when it comes to larger trailers... either grabby or not enough on heavy breaking....

Feel free to ask me any trailering questions... I have towed with everything from SUVs to 1 Ton Duel and I have pulled up to 20,000 pounds (clearly not with the SUVs)

they are available, I still can't get the dealer to install on the summit though! :-(

look at justforjeep or any other parts website, they should run for about $400 to $500 + installation...

Confused on why you need an accessory that was not listed as they are not listed I looked underneath our 2014 overland and after installing the 3 listed skid plates there is nothing but the drive axle exposed. There is a large long underbody plate already on mine from the factory.

I didn't realize that the underbody skid plate is installed on all WK2s from the factory. It is listed as part of the ORAII group, which made me think it was not installed unless you got the ORAII group. Thanks!

I think you might be looking at the plastic dirt shield under the motor.

Although not a mechanic I do know the difference. Besides, I had the front skid plates installed so no plastic up there. I saw the off road package listing underbody but not listed as an accessory. When I got my overland it is on there.... It is black steel, approx 14" wide and 40" long and runs under the passenger seat from front to rear
