Northern Motors tend to do good deals, they also sell through ebay.

Uneek are also doing their own version of the rock rails for the GC. A bit cheaper than the mopar ones.

I'd like the mopar rock rails, tow bar/harness and the underbody protection.

I don't mind waiting if it's going to save $$.
The new Uneek rock sliders look better than the Mopar ones. Might be worth looking at?

VW Touareg 2015, a serious challenger to JGC. Love rotary knob style control and electronic park brake.

At $20 or $30k more than the Grand, yeah I'll be considering it The Grand is still best value for money. The Touareg really needs to come down in price for me to honestly consider it as a viable option. Bullbar, underbody protection, offroad tyres and tinting all for under $57k, show me a touareg I could get for that money!

Ye, price is killer. But still think it be a worthy challenger to overland and summit.

I'd also be interested to see what it's off-road pedigree is like. Have taken the grand off the bitumen and its a strong performer.

I'm impressed, as good as jeep if not better. Plenty off-road clips on YouTube

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Exterior wise, jeep beats VW hands down. Interior wise, the reverse is true.

Here's a link, re off-road clip.

Hmmm, okay. As stated previously, if I'm spending that much on the VW and then adding all the 4WD stuff, well, would I really want to take it off road?? That's a lot of $$ I'm pummeling around the bush. Also, with that electronic suspension, would hate for that to fail in the middle of the outback. Most of the serious 4WDers I have spoke too forsake the airbag suspension for that reason and spend the money on a Murchisons lift kit or similar. Just a lot more robust and reliable.

Now that being said, if I was fair dinkum about 4WDing, I would have bought the renegade etc, however for minimal spend, I get a fantastic road car that can still go hard in the bush. Hence my choice of the Grand.

And what is with the "War of the Worlds" hooter whenever you enter hill descent!! That is creepy!

I'd still take the touareg off road, but it doesn't do anything the Jeep can't so why spend the extra $30k-$40k (for one with low range)?

I do like the cameras though, I'd love to have something that gave me forward view and integrated with the uconnect system.
