Re: She's home! '14 White/Indigo Overland - Questions and Picture Requests Welcome!

the power folding side mirrors are a good feature when parked as such and will work well in my garage scenario as well.

haha, actually, I completely forgot about them! They're not folded in here.

Will do on pictures. My cell will likely skew the colors, but rest assured...this is as spot-on as you can get:

I stand corrected....appeared closed on the small pic but when enlarged, noticed they were in open position.
What's your opinion of the chrome colored side mirrors in relation to the exterior color complement ? Do they stand out "too much" or find that they "blend" in nicely ?
Also can you check the dual exhaust tips...on the Overland, they're rounder than the Summit, which are "fluted" for lack of a better word...do you think it's possible to remove the Overland chrome tips and replace them with Summit-like tips or is the bumper opening on the Overland sculpted to only fit the standard round ones ?
Thanks and congrats on your new 2014 JGC.

Re: She's home! '14 White/Indigo Overland - Questions and Picture Requests Welcome!

It's the 6 cyl.

As requested: I tried the best I could to get accurate pics of the interior color. I took about 12 shots and picked the best few. The close up one, I included my blue jeans and black wool coat for comparison.

About the exhaust. There are oval cutouts for the oval dual exhaust. If you put the flattened summit tips on there, I think it'd look funny. Some bigger tips might look nice though. They are molded into the mufflers..but any shop could cut them off and weld new ones on for you. I'll be leaving mine as-is.

And yes, those are custom hand-crafted cardboard floor mats until my Weathertechs are delivered.

That's far less blue than I was expecting. I think it looks great.

Love the floor mats too!

Re: She's home! '14 White/Indigo Overland - Questions and Picture Requests Welcome!

Thanks for the pics..the indigo looks quite sharp and the white piping on the seats goes nicely with your exterior color...and thanks for the exhaust info...makes sense.
I'll pay the shipping for those "custom hand-crafted" floor mats once you get your Weathertecs ;-)

What color is the carpet? Black? Beautiful combo of exterior and interior colors. Where can I order those custom cardboard floor mats?

Carpet is blu, but very deep blue.

pillars, headliner, and sunroof shade are dark brown.

If the sun has set, the interior looks black all around...with the white piping really standing out under the ambient lighting.

I can't get over how warm and inviting the interior is without being black and somewhat boring.

Re: She's home! '14 White/Indigo Overland - Questions and Picture Requests Welcome!

Very nice ride!! I am just about to order a Limited in white and am having trouble deciding between the V6 & V8. You said you will be happy with it, which makes me believe you were torn at some point. How did you decide and did you test drive both?

Thank you!

I was never torn, I was always going v6 because I put on about 20k miles per year and barely tow. I actually didn't test drive a '14..there were none on the lots when I ordered.

There's nothing I'd enjoy more than the V8 with a nice exhaust on it!

At one point, I was torn between a 2013 and a 2014 V6. The transmission makes it feel like a completely different vehicle. The few extra MPG, and the electronic upgrades made waiting for a 2014 a no brainer. The old 5 speed made the v6 feel like a dog. The 8 speed makes it feel like how you think 290HP should move a mid-size SUV.

I tow a small boat a few times per year on the weekends, and tow 2 snowmobiles a few times per winter. If I did more towing and put on fewer miles per year, I'd have gotten the V8 or waited for the CRD....or bought a different vehicle all together.
