May I ask how much you paid and where you got it done? I'm in Perth as well.

Thanks

Try Crusin on in Wangarra. Got mine done there inc wiring, plus Anderson plug, and tekonsha P3 fitted (I supplied it) for less than the stealer was asking for the bar. About $1200 all up from memory a year ago.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Vic at SBR quoted $990 supply and install unfortunately he hasnt got any in stock at the moment, so will need to either wait for the next container to arrive or pay freight.

Michael Davis at Parkside Welshpool quoted $1079.00 for supply and install of the Mopar bar
Michael said that they just need about 2 days warning, so they can get the bar in.

Jeepkraft $1100 supply and install

Gavin at Cruison hasn't bothered replying to emails asking to quote on a number of things that I am chasing??
But on the website they state $790, $220 fitting
With a note *ALL JULY 2013-on VEHICLES WILL NEED AN ECU FOR AN EXTRA COST OF $200.00

Hi all, just took delivery of my MY15 Grand Cherokee Limited and I can confirm that it has fully functional AM, FM and DAB+.
The dealer wasn't really sure of any other differences so I will have a bit of a look today and see if I can find any.

Thanks, Parkside are a supplier to my work so I'll see if I can get some intel. Didn't even know they did Mopar, I know all their bars for the JGC are Parkside branded but apparently taken out of the same factory as the Haymen Reese.

Thanks piaro, would be great to know what differences there are.

Part of the reply I received from Michael Davis at Parkside
"Thank you for your email, our tow bar to suit MY14 jeep grand Cherokee is the same part as Hayman–Reece as we manufacture both brands. I can source the Mopar product and fit including wiring for $1079.00."

So from that I assume that the bars branded "Parkside" are the same as the bars branded "Hayman Reese" and are indeed from the same factory

I emailed him back stating that I had been quoted $990 from SBR, however they were out of stock at the moment and a bit of a pain to get to considering I am Willetton way, asked if they would match or even better the price but -

"Unfortunately I cannot match this price, we are not an importer of Jeep product so at the fit and supply price I have provided it is not a viable option to discount any lower."

So they must be able to buy them at a Trade price and fit them on request, still considerably cheaper than the Dealers!

Torn now whether to wait for Vic at SBR to get some new stock in or just pay the extra $90 and get one fitted at Parkside

Maybe someone will be offering a "Show Special" over the weekend at the Perth 4x4 Show

Doesnt say anything about DAB+, just DAB, with loads of stations. It does say "station unavailable" but it only last a couple of secs until it locks onto the signal.

Congratulations

I am jealous that the MY15s get DAB+ because I know how much better it is than ordinary AM and FM

The difference in hardware could also explain why the MY15s have a specific version of uConnect software that does not apply to the MY14 models.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi guys,

I picked up my white GC Limited petrol (with sunroof an Lux group II) today from Waitara. Wow..... what a amazing car.. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face driving home from the dealer..

My wife hadn't driven a GC before, and when she did today, she instantly fell in love with it... win...

Its a MY 15 and I can also confirm that the DAB+ works great. Great sound and a few extra stations to tune in to (Double J etc)..

Apart from that, I can't notice any differences..

When I got home I installed the Mopar side steps that I got from ebay and they look great. They weren't a 'difficult' install, just very fiddly with the awkward positioning laying under the car..

I'll be booking it in to get darkest legal tint next week....

Thanks everyone for their help with the info on this forum...

I love this car...
