Nice catch! I've been trying to get a pic like that and it never comes out this good.

Re: True beauty of Maximum Steel

I am considering this color if it's available for the 2014s but I drive off road and dirt roads etc... so how hard is it to keep looking clean? I know with black it gets really dusty which is why I need to stay away from that.

It's not as bad as black. It'll hide a good amount of road dust and grime like a gray or silver would on the sides but one look on top of the hood or roof and then it's noticeable. I live 2 minutes from a DIY car wash so for $5 I just hose her down once a week.

Thanks for the input. I really like the rugged brown color which would be perfect in hiding dust/dirt but it's only offered in the Summit & I don't really want to pay that much more for that color. Also, I don't want the 20" rims and all that chrome. They may change things up though for the 2014s. I wonder if they will offer different colors for the 14s or keep them the same for the refresh.

Re: True beauty of Maximum Steel

Hi, new here 1st post. Going to go down to the dealership and order a 13 Max Steel Limited w/ 20's & Luxury Pack II. The last thing im deciding on is either black interior or the beige. Ive never been able to see a Max Steel w/ beige or even a pic. Im wondering how it would look. I like the look of the beige w/ the black exterior and would imagine it would look almost the same with the max steel since its a dark color. Anyone have a Max Steel w/ beige or has anyone seen one at a dealer that could comment on this? Or anyone w/ any Cherokee w/ beige want to comment?
Its really hard to order a color combo that I cant see in person, but I do love the Max Steel.
Thanks..

Re: True beauty of Maximum Steel

Re: True beauty of Maximum Steel

Heh, thanks. I think it going to look real nice. The Max Steel is a pretty dark color, and I know the Black Ext w/ Beige interior is real nice. Would be nice to see a pic from outside with both doors open..
Thanks for posting that. I ordered my 13 Cherokee w/20's & Beige Lux Pack II, should be here is 5-6 weeks.
Cant Wait...

Re: True beauty of Maximum Steel

Thanks to your post I was able to get the dealer to send me a pic. Though Im trying to post it here and it keeps saying "do not use remote images, upload them instead"
1. Why does it give me the option to use a URL if I cant use remote image?
2. How do I upload it?
