I was considering those for my 2014 GC Limited that is going to be delivered in the next week or so. Thanks for posting the picture. I think they great, so I'm going to go ahead and order them. Did you install them yourself, or did you have the dealer do it?

Did it myself. As others have said instructions are practically useless, but that's OK because installation is pretty much plug and play.

I removed rear wheels as per instructions, but probably could have fought it a bit and left rear wheels on(you only need to punch one hole in felt liner) Also coulda used one hex head screw instead of the phillips head that came with it.(to aid installation without removing rear wheels)

How big of a PITA factor was this install?

Did you have to drill holes in any of the bodywork, or are there removable plugs/fasteners there? [The online instructions I found are just pictographic and slightly less useful than a petroglyh]

Salesman indicated he could get body color ones, but other than the paintables, I haven't located any dark cherry red yet.

Install was easy, not a pain at all. Like I said, I could have gotten away with doing it without removing rear wheels by using a hex head screw instead of the supplied phillips head. There was NO drilling into steel of the body. On the rears you have to make one hole(drill not needed) in the felt liner. The supplied instructions aren't very good, but since the install is so straight forward you really don't need them anyway.

Those look good, nice job :) I guess they are not available for the summit? looks like they exclude summit from the models it fits?

That's odd.

Maybe it is something with the front end being different on the summit or something. who knows but that made my decision for me on that one.

Found out the hard way by not reading the fine print and ordered them for my '14 Summit. Not even close to fitting with the fender flares. Hoping they do come out with a set as the Chicago winters aren't very nice on the paint job.

Those look nice. I have been thinking about getting some for my Overland when it comes in.
I installed mud/splash guards on my Ford Superduty after I got it and it really helps to keep mud from building up on and under the running boards.

I had splash guards on my '01 GC Ltd and loved them. Now I have a '14 GC ltd on order and want them also. When I asked dealer, he quoted about $165 for the Mopar and painting extra. but when I checked some Jeep suppliers like "Justforjeeps" etc they quoted about $34 for front and same for rear. I don't know if these are Mopar or aftermarket. What did you guys use and from where did U get them. Since I have a air spray gun, I could paint them but since my ride will be Billet Silver, Black will look good.
