After the first year of an all-new vehicle, manufacturers often “decontent” (delete) features and equipment to cut costs, most often trim pieces that they feel are no longer necessary or that owners will not notice or miss. The following is a list of items that were deleted from Grand Cherokee models starting with the 2006 model year.
Badge, “5.7L” portion of “5.7L HEMI” badge
Deleted starting with 2006 models built after June 28, 2006.
Chrome caliper cover (rear brakes)
Deleted starting with 2006 models built after April 3, 2006.
(Note: this part has been discontinued by Jeep)
Door handle mat

SRT door sills
Deleted during the middle of the 2007 model year.
Windshield header molding
Deleted starting with 2007 models built after November 7, 2006. The molding is designed to be installed underneath the top of the windshield when the windshield is new or is being replaced. Adding it without removing the windshield can be a little tricky, the back edge on the molding needs to be cut off in order for it to fit into the groove properly.WK windshield molding photo.
