Many of the Companies that manufacture rock rails and the like will cut you a deal if you give them your car for a couple of weeks to design and install products.

For one, Rocky Road Outfitters will do this.
Also, for tow bar base plates all the manufacturers will do something similar but I don't think it takes weeks for them.

Thanks for posting these pics. They help validate my color and interior choice and most importantly, help sustain me while mine is in purgatory, also know as I status (2 days and counting)

Well, we know they have been producing CRD's. They were all slated for overseas though.

That said, I'd be curious if Chevy, Marlon, or Milous can confirm the production date for LHD diesels for us Yanks is still mid-May.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

The article seems pretty clear that CRD production has started for North America, so that would be LHD models. I think the blurb at the bottom was just to indicate RHD for export was already going.

I wonder if they are planning something similar to the DART launch, make a whole bunch exactly the same and then have the dealers come get them and drive them back as demonstrators. Would be nice to get to drive one at the same time we finally get to order one....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

As has been mentioned, at least 1 dealer in the Atlanta area has received a CRD for "training" purposes. So that certainly could be what is happening. Full production certainly will not start before ordering banks open... Milous chimed in a few days ago that things still look good for May 13 production start date, and ordering should open anytime between today and May 7.

There isn't anything available for Summits or SRT on mud flaps (splash guards). I am checking with a few carbon fiber companies to see if they would be interested in making some for the Summit (and SRT) and they both showed interest. Jeep might come out with some but who knows when. The other models, Jeep makes plastic ones that fit the wheel well.

Concerning the production start, my dealer told me yesterday, that Fiat Suisse (Swiss market) gave him the information that:

1 - Limited 3.0 CRD
1 - SRT

will go production next week!

Hope that they're right.

Well, just had a hail storm go through the size of ping pong balls. Sadly i was at work in the parking lot and now my Summit has nice little dents. Good thing it's insured. This is the first vehicle I have owned that has had this happen in 38 years.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Quick: what is the "door edge guards"? It's on the window sticker as a 'dealer added option' for $99.
