ROFL, it got me first time too, that's when after trying to find out what the icon was for is when I found out the wankers had put a my12 manual in GC

Funny after you put it in park, turned it off then on again it went away

They are definitely volume controls... just not for the radio though.

Cheers,
Steve

I just HAVE to ask: Is Bruce married to Sheila?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Looking for options in an all terrain tyre, 27565r18. Little disappointed with availability in aust so far.

Good year at adventure 27565r18, not available
nitto terra grappler 27565r18, not available

So what is everyone running in Australia?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I have General Grabber AT2's in that size. They look very much like a BFG AT. They have a noticeable roar up to 50km/h or so, but at speed the sound is not unlike the background noise in a 747 or similar. Like white noise. There is no whine, which is what displeases me most.

Traction on wet roads seems good. At high speed on loose gravel they are extremely stable. There is a degree of tram-tracking on scalloped roads. Both of the latter are a function of a square shoulder. Off road they bite OK... as expected for the appearance of the pattern. In sand, the LT construction along with the reduced sidewall height means you need to utilise lower pressures than the old rules dictated. Fuel consumption increased a bit... unfortunately I don't maintain great data but it's somewhere between 1 and 2 litres per hundred, and tyre pressures make a big difference.

If I wanted something more "roady" I'd have a look at the Hankook Dynapro.

Have you dredged the Off-Road 18"s thread???

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

The worst part is the prices they demand in Australia for Tyre's which sell for half the money in USA
