First real post

Hi,
I've been reluctant to post until I actually had a Jeep. I would have felt like an imposter. I picked up my Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD Overland yesterday. It is a vastly different beast to my old 80 series Landcruiser. I'm still working out how to open the rear door and window, how to pair my phone with blue tooth and all the other gadgets . What I can say is that it is wonderful to drive. Smooth and quiet with lost of power. It should tow my caravan oops sorry, Trailer with ease.

Re: First real post

Welcome to Jeepgarage and I'm glad that your happy with the new CRD. Lots of features though, probably many you don't even know of yet, but as the days and weeks go on you'll explore and find new things and understand how it all works.

A friendly warning though Smudge, these guys will cost you tons of money. You've been fairly warned.
