Re: Taking delivery at different dealership?

Thanks, that's good advice. I also just read through the thread about the 2015 WK2 which mentions that the order banks are closed for 2014s and the 2015 diesels aren't available to order until the...

Question Taking delivery at different dealership?

Hi all,

I'm going to be moving from WA back to AK soon, and will be bringing my 2000 WJ along, but have another vehicle that I'd like to trade in on a 2014 WK2.

My question is: Is it possible...

Re: ORAII 18" wheel + QL = mushy ride?

Fantastic tires...have the LTX M/S on my WJ and they've yet to let me down, plus they are far quieter than the stock tires.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

$4500 MSRP is better than $5495, but still, neither makes it a no-brainer. I guess my initial hopes of a negligible, "pick yer poison" difference between the Hemi and CRD were highly optimistic...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Based on the pics I've been looking at of granite Challengers, I'd say with a great deal of certainty that it's billet.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

To me, that means that the CRD Jeep *is* covered, since it's a Chrysler (ChryFi) brand. Unless they're saying that Jeep & Chrysler are two separate entities for the purpose of the warranty terms.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The "Build & Price" button on the 2014 JGC site is now redirecting to the 2013 B&P. Better looking than the original error page, but only about as helpful.

Milous, do you know if Rear Cross Path included in the "Advanced Warning System" package? It seems to include every other safety feature, but RCP is not specifically mentioned.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Agreed - our TDI Sportwagen usually gets 38-39mpg in mixed driving (also around Seattle), and on long highway hauls it's easily in the mid 40s, unless you're really stomping on it. It handily...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

"Next-clue" rhymes with "res-cue", but if winch has been ruled out, I'm not sure what the rescue would refer to. "Rescue Mode" for special low-range gearing? Some sort of SPOT device-like locator...
