  1. 2014 SRT - Lifter Failure causing Cam Failure, $7k repair

    Grand Cherokee SRT - WK2
    Update on mine... Just picked up and we're back to normal... no knocking. Attached is the official write-up. Lifters and cam we're both on backorder and other dealers had stocked-up and we're trying to get my dealer to pay MSRP. Runaround for a few days but got it figured out. The techs were...
  2. SRT Paddle Shifter Swap

    Interior/Exterior/Visual/Lighting
    Dealer is replacing the paddles on my '14 SRT. Steering wheel definitely needs to come off. Can't speak to compatibility but seems straightforward if you're comfortable with that kind of project.

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Re: Uconnect - faild to update and neverending loop (worked...) Hi All - Tried again after leaving battery 60 minutes and had same failure. Left the battery disconnected again for about 2 hours then decided to just leave the USB in while running errands. *Surprise* I came out and the screen...
  4. Uconnect - faild to update and neverending loop

    Audio/Visual/Navigation/Electronics
    Re: Uconnect - faild to update and neverending loop (17.43.01) I'm having the exact same issue with my 2014 SRT. Have tried different USB drives (sandisk 16GB and samsung 128GB). Disconnected battery for 5 minutes and tried with same failure. Tried both USB drives while driving today...
  5. Carbon fiber trim came off on passenger side!!

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    This happened to me last year on my '14 SRT. Previous owner was in Florida and I think the environment change coming to North Carolina caused warping of the carbon fiber trim. And, didn't help that it's all held together with 3M tape :( I was still under warranty and the dealer here in...
  6. Stop shaking damit!

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Hey All - Hennessey was the key to the solution for me. Please go read this thread where he details exactly how the 20s should be balanced. I went from heavy vibration at 65+ to now driving LIKE NEW because the shop followed his instructions and got it properly balanced. It's been months of...
  7. Steering wheel shimmy anybody?

    Grand Cherokee SRT - WK2
    @Hennessy has the solution - THANK YOU SO MUCH! Same story as the other guys here... Multiple trips to the dealer and the tire shop, balancing, wheel bearing (TSB) replacement, etc. "Must be the tires..." "Maybe it's the wheels..." "Why do you need to go above 65?" Always the same result...
  8. Stop shaking damit!

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Stop shaking damit! The infamous 2014 vibration Hey guys - add me to this list. Replaced my worn Pirellis with Toyo Proxes back in August. Feel it hard at 75+ but noticeable at 60. Leith Jeep in Raleigh has been great. Took wheels off a 15 and tested different combinations with mine and...
  9. Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Leith Jeep in Raleigh was fantastic on this for me. Replaced dash and all separating fiber under warranty on my 2014. Good guys over there. Sure glad I was still under 3yr/30k - would have been pricey.
  10. Black door trim on B pillar separating?

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Hey guys - I'm the guy Tinman referenced in this thread. Definitely get it fixed by the dealer as soon as you can. I just left the dealer here in Raleigh (Leith Chrysler Jeep). I had called and asked to double-check the warranty on fixing the chip/dent and they said over the phone "we'll...

  12. Trim Part Help - exterior pillar - 2014 Grey

    Interior/Exterior/Visual/Lighting
    Hey All - The pillar between the driver and passenger door has been a little loose (1/8 at the top) lately. Today on the freeway (~85MPH) I heard a *BANG* against the door and saw in my side-view mirror the trim piece blow gracefully into the median. Anyone able to do a part lookup for me or...
  13. 2014 SRT - want spare tire

    General Discussion
    Yeah - I read about the front spare limitation. I'm just getting it so I don't have a flat (if I go no-spare I'll have one in weeks, guaranteed). Just talked to the shop today and will be going with the Proxies IIs. Have heard great things. Also getting Hawk ceramic pads on the front to...
  14. 2014 SRT - want spare tire

    General Discussion
    Hey all - It's time to retire the OEM run-flats and I'm going non-run-flat. I'd like to purchase a spare tire (and jack) if anyone is looking to get rid of it. I heard a guy shaved 2 seconds off the 1/4 mile by saving the weight!! Or, maybe you have AAA and don't want to deal with the spare...
  15. Any of you guys use a Phone mount?

    Grand Cherokee SRT - WK2
    In my Magnum I had a mount that slid into the CD slot (which I never used) and used a magnet to connect my phone (small plate between the phone and cover). Loved it. I found the Mpow vent mount (Robot Check) and really like it. Cheap, easy access, magnet mount, inconspicuous. I just set the...
