Just mention this forum and that you were recommended by Webber and others to visit. Worth the drive and time. Ring Shannon prior to going.
Colozzie, what's going on. Zamo's already got his car and you're still waiting you poor bugger.

Yeah, I'm not a happy chappie yet, but I think of the poor guys who have been waiting for many, many, many, months on this forum and I only have a couple of weeks to go I hope

Not correct size: firestone destination, Michelin ltx at2, general grabber 2, Pirelli scorpion atr, bfgoodrich all terrain ta, cooper discoverer st Maxx.

Bridgestone dueler at 697 is an option but beaten by the Geolanders on 2 reviews I have seen.

Cheers
I have an MY13 Trailhawk which came oem with Goodyear Silent Armour 265/60/18. I can only comment on their on-road useablility so far. They have a very deep aggressive tread but are still extremely quite on the tarmac as promised by their name. I expect they would handle off-road very well.
Have just purchased an extra one for $360 in Sydney to replace the road tyre they gave as a spare with this "off-road" version of a GC. Also replaced the steel spare with a genuine Jeep 18" alloy from Murchisons in Brisbane for a great price compared to Jeep parts.

Has anyone else ordered this upgrade on a Laredo and been able to actually get it? If so, could you please tell me who was the dealer so I can get my dealer to contact them to sort this out.
Although it is a dealer in Queensland , contact Adam at Aspley Chrysler Jeep, I had a meeting with him 2 days ago re a Larado vs Limited. He stated that it would be no problem fitting the Jeep Sat Nav Unit to a Larado, cost about $1000, also can fit front and rear parking sensors too (didn't get a price on this). Another option is the aftermarket Polaris unit Ph 1300 555514.
I have decided to buy a Limited as it is better value. (Placed an order today $65,886 on road).

I pick up my GJC overland CRD white with light interior from Northstar motors next Wednesday. Ordered 5th Dec. 2012. Can hardly wait. Northstar have been very good throughout this time, and price has not been increased from original quote.

Ordered this black beauty two weeks ago (12/06/13) .... Picked her up at 3pm today.

We ordered the Overland with tow pack. But the new wiring harnesses aren't in the country at the moment. The actual tow bars are here. So we have to take her back in to be fitted out with tow bar and wiring. The current wiring on the 2013 isn't compatible with the 2014 tail lights.

It's a great time. I know exactly how you are going to feel when you are introduced and when you sit in that car for the first time, all by yourself, knowing it really is yours......you're going to pinch yourself.

I told the missus I was sleeping in the jeep tonight. She laughed. But I was almost seriously thinking of it. I've got that new car smell in my nostrils. I'm hitting the manuals tonight to swat up on all the hidden treasures. It was pretty overwhelming getting the instructions this afternoon. All I wanted to do was hit the freeway!

Doesn't the passenger seat fold flat or something? That'd be something to try....
