This is one of the nicest Jeeps on the road! I custom ordered this Jeep and it is number 232 to roll off the
production line in 2016. I was planning on keeping this Jeep forever, but our business is expanding and priorities
dictate a sale. There are a ton of upgrades and every upgrade has a functional use that nearly every Jeeper can
appreciate – no angry bird headlight covers here :) And there are only two mechanical upgrades: a K&N cold air
intake and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust. No worries about a DIY installed lift. Want a lift? This Jeep has
everything else. Don’t want or need a lift? This Jeep still fits in the garage. I started this build by custom
ordering a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock the way this Jeep was meant to be built: 4.10 gears, a
six-speed manual transmission, and premium Sunrider soft-top. From there, I added all the upgrades listed below.
Nonsmoker. This Jeep has never been off-road and is in absolutely mint condition inside and out. Runs and drives
perfectly and is still covered by Jeep warranty. If you are looking for a top-of-the-line Jeep with all the bells
and whistles, this is it.
Gobi roof rack with all the available options and add-ons (quick release, dual rear ladders, 4 ratcheting tie
downs, removeable crossbars, and removeable front sunroof insert. The only rack that allows you to quickly tilt it
back to open and close the soft-top. I have the brackets to install a hi-lift jack as well and a kit for touch-ups
if you ever need it)
JW Speaker LED headlights, taillights, fog lights, turn signals (much brighter than stock)
K&N cold air intake (better MPG, HP, and sound)
Magnaflow cat-back exhaust (better MPG, HP, and sound)
Viper alarm with two-way 1-mile range remote and unlimited distance with phone app that includes ability to GPS
track vehicle, Bluetooth, and proximity sensors (proximity sensors can be turned on or off, when on, will alert you
if someone reaches inside the Jeep)
Warn Zeon 12-s winch with wireless control (best winch money can buy and fits beautifully in Rubicon Hard Rock
Maximus-3 stinger hoop (I had the idea that with a synthetic winch and this stinger hoop, I could winch my
heavy PA14 kayak up on the Gobi roof rack – ended up buying a trailer for our kayaks while waiting the 5 months
for my Gobi rack so I never tried, but the concept should work as the synthetic winch cable can wrap around the
hoop and over the rack without ever contacting the Jeep)
Cowl Covers (prevents the cowls from being damaged if the door swings all the way open with the door straps
Tuffy Driver lock box
Tuffy Passenger lock box
Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure (keeps trunk area locked even with top off and top opens or removes easily with
A-pillar mounted grab handles
Sunglass (or anything else) holders for each window seat
Roll-bar flashlight holder
Mopar door sill guards (prevents scratches when entering/exiting Jeep)
Molle Tailgate Storage (comes with two bags that hold a lot of gear)
Grill insert (protects radiator and looks much better)
Jeep 3rd brake light cover (ok, so this wasn’t a functional upgrade, but adds to the look)
Alien sunshade (great in the hot summer sun - not currently installed)
Off-road 13-inch antenna (functions great and looks much better than stock)
Jeep Jammock (hammock designed for Wranglers that mounts to roll bars - my daughter used once to watch
fireworks – fun)
Rear Mopar cargo liner with subwoofer cutout (rubber protects great and cleans with hose)
Soft-top care kit + zipper cleaner and lubricant
Trail anchor rails (really useful for strapping/bungying anything in the rear cargo area)
Windshield custom-fit reversible sunshade (blocks sun and reverse to help heat in winter)
Rugged Ridge black textured hood latches (no more hood shake on highway)
Rugged Ridge hood scoop (never installed)
Removeable mirrors for doors off (not currently installed)
Door hinge side steps (makes it easy to reach roof rack)
Vitamin Blue roof rack pads (great for protecting rack)
New Duralast platinum AGM battery late 2018 (great reserve power for accessories/winch)
Rod holders (I mounted these rod holder on the Gobi rack and they make transporting my 1-piece rods much easier
– they can be easily removed with no damage if you are not a fisherman/don’t have a need)
Dash cell phone mount (retains the storage tray, but adds a very secure cell phone holder to the dash)
WeatherTech in-channel window deflectors (much better than the ones that mount outside the window)
Soft-top window storage bag (keeps the rear windows protected when you remove them to put the soft-top down)
ARB Awning with Awning Room (attaches with Gobi mounts to Gobi rack and creates either a canopy or a tent)
K&N Cabin Air Filter

This is indeed a case of not knowing how much we wanted something until it arrived. We've been big fans of the Jeep Grand Cherokee ever since the new model arrived a couple of years ago, and while the update you see here might seem just a slight refresh, it's actually much more than that.
For starters, the 2014 Grand Cherokee marks the return of a diesel model here in the States, with Chrysler's new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 under the hood, churning out 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Of course, all of the Grand Cherokee's usual off-road goodies are on hand, with moderate tweaks to make it an even more capable vehicle when the going gets rough. Both the gasoline-fed 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8 get the new eight-speed auto, as well.
The high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT also trudges on into the new model year, with very subtle tweaks found underneath the aggressive, slightly redesigned sheetmetal. The 6.4-liter Hemi V8 also gets eight-speed gearing, which Chrysler says will improve not only 0-60 times, but mid-range performance as well. Bring it on, we say.
Okay Jeep fans, you want more diesel options? Time to step up and prove it. The only way Jeep will offer a diesel powerplant in the Cherokee, according to brand head Mike Manley, is if sales of the Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel nearly double.
Currently, about eight percent of the Grand Cherokees sold feature the 3.0-liter, EcoDiesel V6. That's simply not enough to warrant the bringing an oil-burning Cherokee to the US market, despite the vehicle's presence in Europe, where it's sold with a 2.8-liter diesel V6.
"Cherokee is slightly different because of its weight and size. When I think about bringing Cherokee diesel here, I would like to see Grand Cherokee diesel get much higher than eight percent," Manley told Automotive News. "It would have to be in mid-double digits."
For a certain cohort of young folks, Jurassic Park is a touchstone film from their childhood. Not only did it play into practically every little boy's love of dinosaurs, the movie included some great action scenes and special effects that still hold up today. In its latest video, The Aficionauto takes a look the Jurassic Park Motor Pool, a California car club with over 40 fans who created replica vehicles from the iconic film.
The club is made up of an interesting cross-section of people. Many of them were Jeep Wrangler fans that already loved off-roading and Jurassic Park, and liked the idea of bringing them together. Like any close-knit club, it ends up being about community and people coming together to share their interests. It's quite a heartwarming video. Also, be sure to stay until the end because The Aficionauto teases a future Jurassic Park-themed vehicle. Scroll down to check out the motor pool.
