Hey there,Visited Quadratec today, 24/Marc/2014 http://quadratec.com
1) They don't yet have the 2014 Cherokee on their site
2) I called their 1-800 #
Asked when they would be adding 2014 Jeep Cherokee to their site.
"It usually take a while for aftermarket to begin making aftermarket components for new Jeeps blah blah blah".
I explained that there are numerous suppliers available and they are bypassing a huge potential market.
"Can't tell you when we will have the 2014 Cherokee on our site. Sorry".
Asked to speak to their "Forum contact and that I was referred by one of their current suppliers, MGP". Was blind transferred to a voice mail box.
3) I tried their live chat. Following is a transcript:
Hi Rick!Hey there,
My name is Rick, I'm the Quadratec forum rep on all the Jeep forums. I want to apologize for the blind transfer on the sales team. I can't speak for them but I'm not sure why you were transferred to a voice mail randomly.
If you see an exhaust from any vendor with whom we work, or an intake, seat covers, wheels, or anything else, my sales team can special order these parts for you at 1-800-745-2348. Just call them up, tell them you want to place a special order for the product, and provide them with the manufacturer part number. Their hours are Mon-Thur, 8am-Midnight; Fri 8am-9pm, Sat 9am-5pm.
If you need anything, just let me know.
Thanks and have a great day!
Thanks Buddy!Greetings Rick.
Great idea for a thread eak.
We all know Magnaflow has systems made.
MBRP said they will have one
Borla said they will have one
Banks said they are going to design an air intake
K&N said they will have choices
I talked to Bilstien, they said they will look at the Cherokee and see what they are up against, but so far they have intensions to
I like that Magnum has a kit now as well
I have been trying to call Volant for awhile, always a busy phone. If anyone lives near them, stop by. They are always looking for donor vehicles to design kits.
As I have posted in other threads, as the aftermarket opens up in products it makes for an exciting and fun opportunity for these new Cherokees to be personalized by each owner.
Thanks again eak:smile:
