GMWK2's New Ride

Spent the weekend finishing off cleaning the old GC - it is now officially for sale. Someone will get a bargain.

New one is booked to have the wheels swapped over next week and Cooper AT3 fitted. I've been very happy with them on the old GC so will go again. Bit of stuffing around with the pressure sensors.

Oh - and I can confirm that my full size spare won't quite fit in the well with the floor shut in the new car, even though it went in the old MY12. There is something different between the two cars - i think it is the thickness of the floor panel. The bumps in the wheel well look the same. I'll swap the floors over when I get a chance and see. Why the f jeep did this is beyond me. Might swap the Laredo floor if it works - I don't really like the steel strips in the Overland floor anyway - makes dog stand on a lean. Lol.

Re: GMWK2's New Ride

I've noticed a few quality issues with the Overland. The window rubbers are pretty crappy and the fit of the trim under the glovebox is poor. I'm not trying to find stuff, but.....I'll get the dealer to see if he can sort when it goes in for its 1000k service. Will give them something to do beyond changing the oil.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456049460.491264.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456049481.692761.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456049495.843825.jpg

Congrats on the new beast!

They're the standard issues most have.
Don't think they'll change the oil at 1000km.

Re: GMWK2's New Ride

How did you get color matched side mirrors on an Overland?

My 2015 came with the crappy chrome ones.

Don't know about the mirror caps - just came that way.

Re: GMWK2's New Ride

My under glove box trim is the same, and I also had the window rubbers popped out, I just tucked them back in and they have been fine.

That's because you're in the United States?
The O.P. is not. I can tell by the license plate. Jeep doesn't put chrome mirrors on for Europe, Australia, and other countries.

GMWK2's New Ride

Had my old Laredo wheels and Cooper tyres swapped onto the Overland. I think the chrome wheels go better with the other chrome on the car . I'm not a huge fan of chrome if I had the choice, but if you're gonna have it, may as well go all out. The MY15 18" are too drab in my view. Plus I have a full size spare to match.

So my Laredo will be sold with the MY15 18" and brand new Michelins.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456534898.363248.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456534911.462617.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456534944.314887.jpg

I could just about read the reflection of my watch on those shiny sidewalls.

Re: GMWK2's New Ride

I've got about 350km on the Overland now and I have to do a quick trip to Armidale over the weekend. Wonder if low flying along Thunderbolts Way fits into "running in".

See you in about 1000k's.
