Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm guessing you slam the shifter to the right (to activate the paddles), mash the gas, watch the tach, and flick the paddle as required, wait then repeat as necessary.:lol:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you buy the Overland, you can get the QD II as an option, you don't have to buy the whole Off Road 2 package. It costs one large extra but probably worth it if your going to see any snow or ice....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Great, I saw the SRT and assumed:eek: the size would be the 295's, so, although I'm not planning on any rock climbing etc I thought they would reduce the offroadability (new word).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: new overland rims question

Check inside the rims for ice. Remove if necessary. If its still doing it, try getting them rebalanced. Its pretty common for the tire shop to screw it up the first time. Make sure you go back to the...
