Re: 2014 GC Overland Tarnished Chrome

CarPro Iron X Iron Remover will take that right off. My 2011 had the same. Just follow the directions and those marks will wipe right off.

Re: Differentials/transfer case drain/fill plugs

I just drive up onto 4 Rhino Ramps that are spec'd for the weight. Then I set jack stands for safety and use a crawler - there's plenty of room.

Re: Differentials/transfer case drain/fill plugs

Yes. Did mine on Sunday for the second time. The Front & Rear differential plugs can be difficult to remove as they are spec'd for 44 ft. lbs.

Re: Reliability and Extended warranty

I have 56K on my 2011 Hemi Overland and it has never needed any service except tires and a couple of bulbs. I do my own maintenance but still, nothing has failed.

Good luck,

Re: 21.6 mpg highway - HEMI

I'm enjoying the same highway MPG. In mixed driving conditions, I get 18 - 19 consistently but I have to say I don't do much stop & go. The picture is pretty typical.
