Got my 1st. JGC
 
2 Attachment(s)
Just got my '14 JGC Overland last night, ordered on September 30..
It's Overland with 5.7L HEMI and Luxury options, I was planning to get a Summit (had to wait till end of January 2014) or at least Overland with Advanced Tech options (had to wait till end of December 2013) but couldn't wait and pulled the trigger on this one from the earliest shipment..
I've done a quick delivery inspection based on some info and checklists from this forum (big thanks :thumbsup:) and no big issues to report, just the famous tail gate handle gap :) and very minor misalignment of the rear right tail light (the tail gate half of it).. didn't have a chance to fully check under the car because it was in the showroom..
Being in UAE (Middle East), some options are not available or different option groups for example no Diesel Engine, HEMI Engine is standard on Overland and Summit models (can't order them with V6) but that's fine I wanted the HEMI :)... what pissed me off is that the Remote Start isn't available on any model and dealers can't do it later and they don't know why!!
More impressions and better photos to come...

Congratulations!

I've been driving an Overland Hemi since March. My guess is you are going to enjoy the ride.

Thanks bill_de, I Love it :) and hope nothing bad will come up and change that..

what I don't like so far (or maybe still not used to) is the mirror tilt on reverse option, wish I can choose to tilt one side only.. and I don't know why the interior lights stay off after switching off the engine?! only light up when I open the door! is it possible to change this in the settings?

l like my interior lights off, but there is a setting for it.
If you go to controls/settings you will find a lighting option.

Congrats on the new ride! Really like that color.

It looks like your back window is clear glass instead of smoked. Is that how they come over there?

We got one that mistakenly came with a clear window and had to have it replaced.

Nice ride and I really like that color.

Quick question though - My '14 Summit should be arriving this Monday and I'm curious about the issues you mentioned. Are dealers able to fix these items or are we stuck with it the way it's delivered? thanks for your help.

Thanks uofh2005, I'm not sure if it's 100% clear or lightly tinted..
as per my build sheet, all glass should be tinted but maybe with different %
GBBS Tinted Windshield Glass
GCBS Front Door Tinted Glass
GEDS Tinted Rr Drs/Qtr/Liftgate Glass

doesn't matter anyway I'll put some high quality 3M or V-KOOL tint before summer (daytime temp range 105F to 125F):mad:

Dealer promised to fix everything, Will take it tomorrow for 1000 km check and see if they can fix the tail gate handle and tail light minor issues + steering wheel shimmer/vibration on highway speed..

Congratulations! I'm sure you'll love it! The WK2 is a great 4x4, both in terms of looks and performance. :thumbsup:

For the steering wheel vibration/shimmer, dealer said I have 2 faulty tires and requested to change the whole set or at least the 2 faulty tires (currently processing warranty claim)..
For the minor misalignment of tail light, fixed..
For the tailgate handle gap, they can't fix coz it's not installation problem! They said the handle itself isn't straight or flush and they will follow it up with the manufacturer for future solution..
