Re: 2014 Grand cherokee diesel accelerator pedal

It's pretty much a trait inherent in all latter generation diesels.
I first noticed it when I drove one of the first diesel Territory's in my previous job.

Re: Off Road 18"s

My tyre placard only lists the size tyre fitted as standard, as ordered.
I assume that if you ordered it with ORA pack and the 18's then the placard would state that.

Re: Off Road 18"s

I've seen them on Ebay for anywhere from $240 - 260
Obviously freight and fitting need to be factored into that.
