Re: Aussie tv commercial gc diesel

judging by the amount of rattle i have in my jeep now after some minor 4x4ing, i can only imagine how the inside would sound after doing 60mph on a dirt track....

Actually, not to be pedantic, but the Gibb River rd is only in WA. Runs from Derby to Kununurra (closest towns)

Agree, I wonder if it is for the Aussie market?

Reminds me of the commonwealth bank ads where the US ad execs go way over the top and totally miss the mark when all us aussies want is no bullsh1t.

I do not like the ad either, but only the last 15 seconds ruined it.

I did 12000 km over 4 weeks on a holiday from Sydney to Adelaide to Flinders to Ularu to Alice including the 100 km shortcut between King's Canyon and the Stuart Highway to Darwin and back via Mt Isa in my Jeep (Cherokee CRD)

That included a lot of dirt roads and now the only thing rattling is my coin holder

I hope the new JGC which I've ordered with its extra body stiffening will be rattle free too

No bull bar at the beginning of the video but it magically appears at the end.

Oh.........and the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the vehicle.
