Re: Chrome Liftgate Trim on Summit

No chrome in that area on any MY14. It's one of the key visual differentiators from earlier model years. I'm not sure where that illustration you posted came from. Maybe something aftermarket?

Re: Chrome Liftgate Trim on Summit

thank you for the reply, I'm aware of that but that pic was taken from 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee App available in the Apple app store, I am curious why that chrome part was not included in the final Summit Design.

Re: Chrome Liftgate Trim on Summit

Downloaded the app myself to check this out and I have the same results. Maybe a hint at 2015 model difference?

If something says, "Steal this one." that certainly does.

Re: Chrome Liftgate Trim on Summit

I'd assume it didn't make it to final production because it is hideous.

Re: Chrome Liftgate Trim on Summit

That may be an early illustration that just happened to look "pretty" for the document. I happen to like the chrome strip on my MY12 Summit, but the one in the OP is a bit over the top for me!

I completely agree. It looks absolutely awful.

Re: Chrome Liftgate Trim on Summit

Looks like something Pep Boys or JC Whitney would offer. No thanks. I never liked that chrome piece on my 2012 Overland so I'm glad they got rid of it on the 14's.

I disagree with most of the replies I kinda like it even better than some blackouts I've seen out there IMO but once again beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
