Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I don't need a flat-head screw driver to open my makeup compact Bluey. Why don't they make it like a makeup compact? See, there is a design flaw right there.

I'm not even sure I can find a small flat-head around this place. Probably buried somewhere in the husbands shed/barn. *sigh*

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

And finding a flat-head screwdriver for a key fob is the least of his worries when he goes and does something like this:

On the basis of that, I wouldn't be letting him anywhere near any of the Jeeps then!! Back to the scooter or dragster for him!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

He's alright with the Jeeps PK.

To be fair, this is the first time that it has got the better of him over a few years - we are on a fair slope in places and it handles it fine in 4x4 mode, as do both Jeeps.

The issue was (according to him) that the rotary hoe attachment (attached for ballast purposes) got stuck on the lip of the new slab... and over he went.

He wanted to use WK2 to haul the thing upright. That would be no from me. We didn't have a 20 metre strap to begin with and the height angle would prove difficult.

Tow truck with long winch rectified situation from the top of the slope.

That was cool. I thought there would have been more robots involved. Still a fair bit of "human intervention". I like the way they reckon the GC is off-road ready, however those of us who do take them off-road well know, there is a bit of money to be spent and work to be done to make this so. They are still very much "toorak tractors" out of the show room.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

One interesting bit out of the video is that the 21 inch water wading depth is rated to 30 mins.

Also liked the bit where they were adjusting wheel alignment, hopefully they have fixed that for RHDs.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

A little DAB will do it!! (Maybe)

Ok, don't shoot me down in flames but here we go with the DAB question for the MY14 Laredo.

Just got my 20,000km service done with the UConnect update of 14.25.5.

As others have mentioned the DAB screens have come up ater updates as well. Not sure if it was this Jeep Garage or some other site said it is only a matter of tweeking the Unconnect to get DAB on. For those that have DAB, is it worth it?
