First Time Jeep Owner - 2014 V6

Hey all...my wife and I bought a 2014 GC for her last week and it's my first Jeep and first SUV. I've driven Camaro's all my life, and have found those forums to be useful for information and what not, so it looks like this forum is going to be handy too!

We picked up an Overland V6 4x4 and love it so far - True Blue with Indigo interior. It has absolutely everything we had our list when we started shopping, and was still less $$ then some other SUV's (and cars) we were looking at. My parents actually bought a 2013 V8 a few weeks before, so guess we became a Jeep family real quick.

We haven't come across anything too too negative yet, though there's more technology on the thing than we really need and sometimes seems overkill (like I miss a simple heated seat button, not having to go through a touchscreen menu). But, it's been good.

Hope to read some cool stuff on here

Welcome!!

This site has great information and is usually filled with friendly and helpful people. Until you get to the V8 vs V6 debates.

Re: First Time Jeep Owner - 2014 V6

Thanks all...hope to take some pictures this weekend, it was actually a dealer demo with about 400 miles on it, and we bought it late at night and have been too busy to take it back to get detailed.

That does sound like a great color combination! Hope you're loving the V6! Awesome ride!

Re: First Time Jeep Owner - 2014 V6

Welcome! As another newbie to the Jeep fold (impatiently waiting for my '14 Overland to get built ), I can tell you that the community here is top-notch and super helpful.

Also, I'll just save SnoFire the time and recommend the "search" function now.

As someone who just spent a solid hour researching plasti-dipping, I fully approve of this message! (Now if I just had a Jeep to put these hypothetical mods I'm planning on doing to... )

Anyways - let's see some pics, jer630!

First blue-on-blue i've seen and i like it! I think it's a testament to how cool the amount of color customization is jeep gave us this model year.
