Re: recovery points
Jeep Australia still don't get it
Guys the Grand Cherokee is a Bloody 4 x4 and there fore needs to have fitted in the factory suitable, recovery points on the front
Why are these fitted as standard in USA but here in Ozz we are treated like second class people of the world.
It tells me that the staff at Chrysler Jeep Australia have no idea and they do not use their product for what is designed for, or is as i suspect a grab for more costs after you have made your purchase
Love the car,
Not so found of CJA

Your assuming that jeep Australia drives the option packages for their cars rather than head office.

2. The fitment of tow hooks on the US vehicles has little to do with off road antics requiring recovery. It has everything to do with driving in snow and ice with the car sliding off into a drift at the side of a sealed road and then requiring extraction.

It's part of the bad weather option list for people in snow bound states - ie come s with slush mats and stuff.

Edit - I don't remember ever seeing them standard on the landcruiser either- they seem to be options

Well as I expected they canceled the order. Thought $31 was a bit cheap to ship here. May work out for the best though, I just remembered I know someone in Colorado who is moving out to work with us in Sept. When I get back to work in a couple of weeks I am going to see if I can throw them in his household shipment. Freight would be even cheaper.

We have 7 pin flat plug and decided on red arc because it sits in the dash as just a button and no big box in the way of my knee.

Hey guys,


Our voice control works 100% apart from Nav... As we all know camera on Overland is fitted in USA so no probs on that one. Contacted dealer for the U-connect book & about parking lights not working when car is on. However everyone has gone on holidays so will wait till the 8th when they get back.. Have only just got 1000km on the jeep in 3 weeks so at this rate will take forever till its due for first checkup..

I'll ask about the voice Nav as I would love to get that feature working.. It says it should in the post sale literature so I think someone at Jeep AUS should find out how to.. Or change the VR sheet not to mention it.

Apart from that still Loving This Jeep.. In fact my poor JK has not been used apart from work since the new arrival.

You have an Overland, it is fitted in the US.
The Laredo has it's camera fitted in Aus by the dealer, all other models have it fitted in the US.

See in this bag of goodies to be fitted in the back of a newly arrived (not prepped) Laredo, there is a box marked P/Camera (I have put two red dots there).
It says "NO", as in not supplied from US, it is to come later.

Have you tried Just for Jeeps? I'm pretty sure they will ship to Aus and they have the genuine Mopar hooks for US $163.

Fair call, they should be std to compete in the market, surely they are on the wrangler rubicon.........

Still, I bet the mindset in Chrysler USA is ice, not serious offroad
