2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

So what do people keep around the spare?

From my photos, stuff kept in the well full time :

Bottom left is my first aid kit and garbage bags for muddy boots or wet gear. Top left I have a folding shovel and a small kite ( yep - still a big kid). Top right I have my snatch strap. Bottom right is other recover gear, riggers gloves and various tie down straps. Centre in the wheel is standard jeep jack, a towel and emergency ponchos.



So what do others have?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Nothing revolutionary here GM. A 6000kg snatch strap, tow strap (technically a winch extension), 2x bridle/equaliser straps, a few rated shackles, tyre plug kit and associated tools, gloves, rags and a tarp, ratchet tie down straps, occy straps, cable ties, duct tape, fridge 240v power supply and a few other bits I've forgotten. I keep a few very basic tools on board, but I can't fit all I want when travelling so have a more comprehensive kit I pack in the boot.

As a serial tyre pressure adjuster I find I need to keep my compressor heaps accessible, so it's either in the side hatch of the van or just on the back seat floor. The gauge and deflators are in the door pocket in a stubby holder to stop rattles. Actually all the door pockets are lined with stubby holders... I must look like a Class A pisshead when the doors open! Ironically they hardly ever get used for their intended purpose.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

There is a rumor over at AJOR that they won't be importing the v8 (other than SRT) anymore due to poor sales. I thought that was strange.....

The WK2 5.7 ? - I haven't actually seen one on the road yet.
The only 5.7 V8 I've seen was one for sale in the used lot at the dealer last November when ordering my diesel.

It's quoted as a 27hr job!
As a 1hr service takes them 8 hrs to complete, this will take them at least a month.
Actually its only 14.5 hours for the WK unless you have both the Jeep (WK) and the Durango (DS) engines under the bonnet.

The 0.3 hours for the "highly skilled technician" is probably 20minute to explain to the vehicle owner that the shudder that they perceive is NOT this problem, and why they wont be doing the repair.

I've seen one on the road (well at the shopping center) and I know Bill (Chief Products) has one. So maybe there are 3 in Oz.....
