I was looking at a Boss 302 the other day. White and badass looking and the dealer had gone a screwed on the front plate bracket just so they could advertise their dealer name on it. Totally screwed up the front end of the car for me.

Buy A Sherry!!! Not only aplate but an awesome bracket to go with it!!

Me too....I cannot believe the things they do to a vehicle "after" it is sold and "not" theirs to drill and advertise...

...only they put petrol in it.

It took them a week and a lot (I mean A LOT) of money for them to get it all cleaned out (as I had driven it and it had sucked petrol into the engine fouling everything along the way... tank, pumps, filters, lines, injectors.. the whole damn thing had to be ripped apart and cleaned/rebuilt.
Wow bummer...reminds me of a brother in law going through a divorce and the soon to be ex put sugar in his chrysler mini van....and it fouls up the whole fuel transport system like you mentioned....he fought with problems for a long time as the sugar kept leaching out of everything...ugh.

Have you tried the VON# with your name? I know for mine it took a few days before I was able to get into the VOTS

I got an error message in vots for about a week. Then everything took its natural course, with what seemed like endless delays. But 7 weeks later I drove my Jeep home.

If you obsess over it and call people to make sure they are building your car, you will drive yourself nuts.

Relax ... your baby is coming ... and this one you don't have to put through college.

Four holes if its the Jeep bracket...plus potential additional marks by the two screws coming though the plate and on through the bracket...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

when i went to the dealership earlier in the month they had 2 2014s on the lot and their front bumper already had marks on them for where to drill holes.
No plates or brackets were in, but there were 2 round indents that looked to be where the license plate would go

That's from the factory. My MDX had the same.

I've never had a problem with dealer advert stickers or badges. You just tell them you don't want any on your car and they won't put them on in the first place!

Got to agree with PMD on this one - that's one hell of a difference.
