In regard to bras, yep. Got one on the GC too.

MAN! - I must say your Car-Bra is the Dolly Parton style.

I think I'd prefer the Tayler Swift version:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

The other point that's worthy to note about Car-Bras is the damage it can cause to other vehicles if it comes off while you're driving....like the link below.

Beware!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hey everyone, new to the thread, but been watching.....
Noticed this on the jeep.com.au blog and remember I saw the question asked recently by a forum member...

"The adaptive forward lighting system actually directs the lamps to shine where the Jeep is heading. The lamps adjust up to 15 degrees to help illuminate the road around corners at night.".

To me, that's saying at least the adaptive headlights are an option...

Thoughts?

Just looked out the window and I see the Oberon in the harbour. Must be about to unload all those 2014 GC's in NZ. Hope they leave some for you guys in Aussie!

Auckland harbour has a webcam, so you could have seen the Oberon at the dock.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I agree the bra kooks a wee shabby, but I only use it on country trips, and remove it when I reach my destination. I do not have a single chip on the front of the car.
It is not a genuine Mopar bra, which fits a lot better, but is made of thinner material. Mine comes from a Melbourne company.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Oh, and to highjack the thread again...

My Alfa parts arrived a few minutes ago at my front door from the UK. So from order to arrival about 5 days. I was able to track it through the DHL site through Germany, Singapore and arrival in Sydney.

So when Jeep tell you parts take 5 weeks from the USA, or they tell you you cannot have an E number to track your $80K car - what a load of bull.

I wouldn't mind knowing where you got the Parton Car-Bra - and bugger the way it looks, as long as my girl doesn't get any chips or dents!
