Re: Replacing copper trim on MY14 overland with silver trim

Jim's note of clarity didn't seem to get through, so I think it's worth repeating.

Nearly right: the discount applies to the 995 destination fee, too. So with that minor adjustment I think the total would be $49,952.68

Re: What are new owners buying for their new Jeeps?

I'm not crazy about "Grand Cherokee" on the door, but otherwise the chrome doesn't bother me. I'm getting a CRD, but I might remove the Eco-diesel label.
