Hey all...my wife and I bought a 2014 GC for her last week and it's my first Jeep and first SUV. I've driven Camaro's all my life, and have found those forums to be useful for information and what not, so it looks like this forum is going to be handy too!

We picked up an Overland V6 4x4 and love it so far - True Blue with Indigo interior. It has absolutely everything we had our list when we started shopping, and was still less $$ then some other SUV's (and cars) we were looking at. My parents actually bought a 2013 V8 a few weeks before, so guess we became a Jeep family real quick.

We haven't come across anything too too negative yet, though there's more technology on the thing than we really need and sometimes seems overkill (like I miss a simple heated seat button, not having to go through a touchscreen menu). But, it's been good.

Hope to read some cool stuff on here :cool:

Thanks all...hope to take some pictures this weekend, it was actually a dealer demo with about 400 miles on it, and we bought it late at night and have been too busy to take it back to get detailed.

Welcome! As another newbie to the Jeep fold (impatiently waiting for my '14 Overland to get built :rolleyes:), I can tell you that the community here is top-notch and super helpful.

Also, I'll just save SnoFire the time and recommend the "search" function now. :D:slapfight::lol:

As someone who just spent a solid hour researching plasti-dipping, I fully approve of this message! (Now if I just had a Jeep to put these hypothetical mods I'm planning on doing to... :thumbsup:)

Anyways - let's see some pics, jer630!

That is sharp!!! The True Blue looks great...I thought it would look a lot bluer!! Great match with the interior and the chrome pops just enough!

Yup...definitely a neat deal. Outside of the 4x4 part, it lowers a bit into Aero mode automatically over a certain speed on the highway. And it lowers like an inch and a half in park mode...which we used yesterday to lower the tailgate to put some bags of mulch in.

On a negative note, it sort of got "stuck" in raised mode today when I was showing it to a family member...when I pressed the button to lower, it said "Lowering" in the display but never did. Drove it around the block and tried it again and it was fine. Odd, will have to keep an eye on it to see if it was a fluke or what.

And we've already gotten a lot of positive comments on the true blue...definitely happy with it.

A menu to activate heatd seats?

.....there's more technology on the thing than we really need and sometimes seems overkill (like I miss a simple heated seat button, not having to go through a touchscreen menu)
A touchscreen menu to activate heated seats?? Seriously?

Can anyone comment on this? Are heated seats only available through a menu? I hope not.....seems stupid and unsafe.

Yup, only thru the menu. No hard button to push.
