Re: Hood "JEEP" Emblem

You shouldn't have to remove those at all. I have the clear bra on my 14 and it has a cutout that matches the outline of the letters in it. If its an Xpel dealer, they should have a plotter that...

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Overall I have about 6400 miles on the truck. Since the update I probably put around 150 on it. Maybe....hopefully, it will mellow out with miles.

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Hopefully this is the case. I had the same clunk with mine but have not had enough drive time to listen for it since I got the update.

I just returned from my dealer after having the update installed on the Overland. It is night and day better in eco mode. Before in eco, it seemed like you had to floor the pedal before it would...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Re: Subwoofer carpet destroyed

I would think so...I cant imagine it being that expensive.

Its just a matter of finding it. I havent tried the dealership yet so I assume they would have the means to price it out and order it.

Re: Nice fill up after record MPG trip

Id agree with that. Maybe even worse. My old car would average around 31 at 75mph on the 600 mile trip to Fl. If traffic or the weather was bad and I stayed around 65mph, 37-39mpg was certainly...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes
