I thought the same thing and went the luxo (Summit) sporty (Corsa) route. I know it's round tips in a trapezoid cutout but it looks real good in person. Sounds even better!

How is the noise level on the inside with the cords? I agree, that exhaust looks pretty awesome. In my teens I had the loud exhaust on trucks and I'm kinda over the interior drone that they provide.

How would the base chrome SRT rims look on a summit?

Virtually no drone. I am very sensitive to it so if it doesn't bother it won't bother anyone. Corsa is the only one with a patent on drone-cancelling technology. You get a small amount when MDS kicks in but it disappears. At cruise it is silent. It's a real sleeper. Civil and cruise but when you start it up, EVERYONE cocks their head and when you get on it, their heads snap! It's funny they are looking for the Vette, Camaro, Mustang and they finally realize it's a Jeep. Pretty funny every time it happens.

The base SRT rims are a "polish" which is the same as Summit so kind of a satin look. Not sure how they would look, probably pretty good. I am going to eventually "murder" my summit to get rid of the chrome and will probably go with a carbon, black chrome rim but have to chill for a while on expenses since I have already tinkered with it and the wife doesn't understand spending $48k and THEN replacing things

Nice! Ya I'm sure that once I have mine, my other half will not enjoy the depleting of the bank account. Keep me posted in the carbon black trim.

When I first saw the 2014 Summit, I knew the 2012 Overland was history. For one, the tailpipe tips just give the Summit a more upscale luxury look than the Overland. Which is what Chrysler was going for. I'm tired of seeing round exhaust tips on just about everything out there. And the standard HK stereo was the clincher. But its great that Jeep offers so many models of the GC to choose from.

The wheels kill it for me. I like that the 2014 Summit comes with totally different 20" wheels than past Summits that had the old style 5 spoke wheels. To many 5 spoke wheels out there already.

Some chrome dipped overland wheels would look nice on the summit!!
Unlike the previous 2011-2013 Summit wheels, the 2014 Summit wheels aren't chrome.

2011-2013 Overland Summit wheels aren't chrome, they're polished.

I had a 2012 overland summit and "upgraded" to a 2014 summit. I wish kept the 2012 or went with a overland for the 2014 due to looks and practicality.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I just got my factory ordered summit last night. I have to say I am extremely happy with the Summit wheels and chrome. Especially with the granite crystal paint.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I liked the overall look and wheels of the Overland over the Summit's.

Too much chrome on the Summit. The added features on the Summit didn't justify the additional cost for me. Haven't listened to the HK sound system so I can't/won't knock it but I have no complaints with the Alpine in the Overland.

I just felt that the Overland had the best feature set for the price.

I recently actually test drove a Summit (just last weekend) as I was considering upgrading to a Hemi and found a Summit in good price range. When test driving, I cranked the HK system to see what the difference was and I must say, I didn't really notice anything that much more extraordinary from the Overland Alpine system. I actually felt like it had less bass than the Alpine. I even cranked the bass up and turned the treble and mid all the way down and still didn't boom that much. I will say the sound may have been a fraction crisper/clearer but not enough to make a huge impact/difference over the Alpine system. Unless there is something I was missing, I wasn't that all blown away by it.

Here is the tread I posted regarding my Summit experience:
