I would have to disagree. The True Blue always looks BLUE. The Maximum Steel tends to look black-dark slate most of the time with a blueish/cobalt blue hue to it. Like many have said, the Jeep website does not quite show the actual color - it looks cobalt blue on the site. I actually saw a Max Steel next to a Brilliant Black at the dealership and it is just a shade or two lighter than the BB.

It IS a nice paint however that I am considering it over the True Blue.

For those of you hearing the buzzing sound or metallic rattle while driving, I have posted the info over in the following Jeep Garage Forum: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound While Driving. The info their contains the Chrysler Star Number and what was found along with a picture of the offending bracket.

Now to get the estimate on the hail damage and then get the PDR team to get them knocked out. At least none of them chipped or broke the paint seal so that is in my favor. Found 5 more this morning once the daylight came (no sun).

Appreciate the thoughts guys and gals. Was a tough night thinking of the dents in my new ride

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I really like the Max Steel, but on seeing a Granite JGC in person earlier this week I've decided to get it instead. It's much better looking in person than on the web and is quite a bit different than my 05 Dodge with mineral grey. Glad I saw it in person before my order goes in.

I have a billet with indigo in I status now. I really like the blue, but the silver doesn't show dust pollen etc as bad and I just can't keep the dark colors clean where I live

Agree, I have always had black and this time opted for the Cashmere which is really more beige than anything,

Do you have a MY14 or 13? The info below your image name shows 13 - may want to show your support to your 14

Haven't checked in a week or so. Last time I tried changing it to a 14 it wasn't an option. 2014 Summit. The Edit Profile screen does not offer a 2014 as an option (2013 is as high as it goes), so I set it back to nothing and let my signature do the bragging!

fyi, I went to the Jeep build/price page, built the color I wanted then did a search of local dealer inventory and went to the dealers to see the colors (interior and exterior) I was interested in. Even doing that I went back and forth on exterior colors, but have finally settled on the cherry red. Also, other chrysler products often use the same colors, for example the cashmere is available on the town&country, and the auburn brown on the 200. That makes it easier to find the color you are looking for.

I've been checking on the availability of GC's within a 400 radius of my home and that's real close to the ratio I'm finding - lots of Hemi blacks (usually paired with that ugly ass tan interior), a few reds and granites with the occasional white thrown in - very few V6's.

Hemi's cost more, they probably make more selling them.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

That's all I see my local dealer has as well, Black, White, and Red. They mixed up the interior colors, but they are only ordering Laredo and Limited models and the V6. They've only had 2 V8's in, mine being the first and one other sitting on the lot. I would assume they have a higher demand for the higher model/bigger engine but I guess not.
