Sorry SNUKE.

Picked up my Laredo with QL and ORAII on Friday. Fitted with Michelins (crappy kuhmo spare!!). Bash plates are all in place so assume the ORA II is fitted. Have select terrain available as well which further confirms the ORA is fitted.

Currently getting about 7.6/100 after 300 kms.

Love it!

Regards

Adrian.

I thought as much. Where do they come up with this stuff? It just facinates me how little they know about their product. It's their job!! They get paid to do it!! Yet most of us have full time jobs and manage to know more about the vehicles.

Ha the 'choco box' jeep, like a box of chocolates cause you never know what your gonna get.

Adrian, the terrain select comes as standard on all the GC's, except SRT. I'd be testing the rear diff with one wheel in the air to see if the limited slip kicks in.

Hope they didn't wack on some bash plates just to complete your order.

Ok, just had a look at the official buyers guide and my understanding is the Laredo has the Michelins and Ltd and Overland get the Kumhos.

My apologies Adrian for casting doubt over your ORAll.


Anyone else taken delivery of Laredo with ORAII?

Can you tell me what it shows as the "current status"?
You wont see your car on a ship until you see this text in the tracking "VIN Information Effective " You might get lucky and get on the Tammerlane, but I doubt it. More likely your car will get on the Tirrana, depending on how many cars are in front of you on the wharf.
