Hay Magoomba, how's the new GC going?
You haven't posted up any thing since picking it up
Leaving aside the Kerry's stuff up's( anyone who has dealt with them is not surprised ), what do you think of the GC, good, bad, love?
Any pics?
I talked to the tyre place that fitted your Yokohama's yesterday, half an hour after taking the kumho's off yours he had a guy with an up market Paj come in saw your kumho's and had them fitted to the Paj as he wanted highway tyres
Give us an update
Yoda

Re: Test drove the 3.0L Diesel today!

Hello Everyone, I did plug a tuningbox on the engine of our limited diesel 2012 GC, racechip.com, it really improve the response. The only thing I'm not happy with, is the final rpm when driving on freeway... to high, it ruin fuel economy... we can drive 130 km/h...that's mean 2700rpm...

The future 8 speeds transmission will have the same final gear as the 5 speed... 0.67... too bad

Hey yoda,
As of this minute I'm in Darwin .. Today I had the Anderson plug installed into back for my thumper battery system ... They did a great and very neat job. In the morning they are putting in my 20 inch LED light bar under to number plate, bracket was made today. So fingers crossed I will have photos tomorrow ... As for the car .... Wow. Great fuel economy and a pleasure to drive. The Yokohama ATs are unreal !!!!

Good to hear they are finally fitting some of the things they should of before delivery, have they done the reverse camera yet?, when they do check the tail gate for damage (trim and paint inside and out, they damaged ours while fitting the camera )
Are they paying for your fuel and accomodation ?
Glad to hear you are enjoying the GC, looking forward to some pic's

Hey Yoda,
It's not jeep fitting anything ... Their next month, it's Peter Brown Auto Mechanics, they are fitting my Thumper Battery system in the back and LED light bar under the number plate. Up side is, it's nice to be here in Darwin where I can shop! Lol
