All hard plastic seems to be gone even from the door panels. They all appear to be wrapped in leather or something similar.

You can see headlamp washers on the 75th anniversary one from the Geneva Show. Probably same that will be used in the Summit.

The 2016 Volvo XC90 won Motor Trend SUV of 2016. That has a leather boot on the shifter. I prefer the leather boot over a knob any day.

Re: 2014 grand cherokee bulbs

You are going to need two bulbs for each side for the reverse. The one on the liftgate and the one under the turn signal.

Liftgate: 921 (W16W)
Under Turn Signals: 7440 (W21W)
