I doubt that would change anything unfortunately. And it definitely wouldn't magically convert my chrome to brushed steel and turn my bezels black.

It's also even more ridiculous that you are manufacturing in the US, yet we can't even touch them. What a great business model.

I would actually trade in my 2012 for a 2014 if I could get the Ukraine look. Oh well, I'll keep my money.

Wouldn't have to worry about any chrome corroding and could take the
Bering Strait land bridge (throw it in Off Road 2 height and ford some ocean water) on to Alaska and then through Canada and few hundred more miles and into my garage.

Seriously though, love love the Ukraine model Overland.

Re: Ukraine gets Overland w paint matched mirrors&handles, &black rearstep & tail sur

I too like the look of this version so much better. When i first saw all the chrome on the 2014 it reminded me of that episode in the Simpsons where Homer is hired to design a new car.

Marlon_JB2 - is there anywhere in your system where you can tell people in design or marketing that you frequent a Jeep fan site and all there who have seen the low-chrome version like it much more? Anyone we can contact?

Understated is classy. Loud and brash looks cheap. JMHO.

You'd have to contact Chrysler yourself, I don't have any "contacts" with product design, etc. Just here at the plant level, and somewhat with Mopar.

Sorry.

BTW: I don't need to tell them that I'm on the forums. Trust me, they know.

Re: Ukraine gets Overland w paint matched mirrors&handles, &black rearstep & tail sur

hmmm... so you're telling me I should buy some parts here before I leave?

The sh*t they put on the roads here is ABSOLUTELY corrosive. So glad I decided to bring my beater here instead of buying a new JGC before we moved. Under 100 days 'til I'm back in the 'states!

That's what I would do if you wanted these parts that bad.

Grab some of those diesel badges too. Seems like around here, a few people would rather have those instead of the NAFTA EcoDiesel badges.
