I'm a little confused about the 18" tire. From what I've experienced buying my JGC there's only one 18" tire used for every application. Michelin Latitude Tours are on every 18" wheel Jeep rolls off the assembly line. Even the ORA packages use them. This would make it a Michelin production problem. I think a lot of it might be due to overall good new car sales across the board. I know I had to order early and wait for my LTX M/S2 Michelin replacements for my Jeep. Just in time supply chain tactics can save a company a bunch of money until short supply shuts down selected production, which is what seems to be happening with the Laredo. You can bet some supply forecast person is getting an earful right now.

Or it's nothing more of marketing strategy to upsell would be Laredo buyers to base Limited. Ever wondered why the most basic model is "Late Availability"???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

How often is MOTS updated?

I received an email from VOTS early Tues AM saying my vehicle was in Paint.

If true, then it's completed but MOTS still shows the status as D1.

Can anyone help me understand what's going on?

The last time I looked at a Jeep CRD, they were pretty heavily marked up.

Demand here in Seattle basically meant they *never* had one on the lot.

To this day, if you want a Diesel (pretty much anything) in this area, you are going to pay a heavy price for them (especially used).

For example, I sold my 2004 Mercedes E320 CDI for *more* than I paid for it, when I bought it used. I've never had that experience with any other car.

...stupidly, I bought a 2006 Mercedes E55 AMG to replace the diesel.

Sorry about the wood part gentlemen.

I'm a old Texan and I've got a few rough edges - or so my wife says.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

When they finally do release the CRDs, wife likes the "Deep Auburn Pearl". I have searched for a gas version to look at, and cannot find any dealerships that have this. Does anyone with a 14 have this or have you seen it? Is it the same as the old "Rugged Brown"?
