Going to see my daughter in Korumburra tomorrow - can't wait to get out on the open road.

Colozzie, congrats on the new baby. You will love the fuel economy of this thing. My trip back to Alice was just amazing. So wish I was still driving home.

Yep now that I am in town my economy is similar if not a little worse. Living in such a small town you don't get to go on any freeways, etc. so constant slowing down, accelerating... Still the now city economy is beating my hwy economy of my old 4wd..

A pleasure it is.. Sadly for the last two nights it comes wine o'clock.. I look out the kitchen window and tell the wifer... "Baa Baaa is lonely" So we end up going out side cranking the stereo in Baa Baaa and having a glass of wine... Sad I know... tomorrow she gets to go to work with me so she will get a good run. 60km round trip.

Hahahahah that's completely awesome .. I've taken Any excuse to do any job that's needed doing at any time .. Including getting milk at 11pm at night from the servo incase we ran out ... Now that's sad

The jeeps love wine time for what's its worth.. Seb had a fantastic weekend frolicking around the hunter valley wineries last weekend.. Sunroof open, daylight lights looking like a little show pony!

A classy car needs to do something classy and skipping through Australia's wine region is up there. stayed in a nice little B&B in the Hunter a number of years ago, can't remember it's name but was in kicking distance from Allandale's winery...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Thanks for listening to my short rave on my first drive home - doesn't quite match up to auscop's. Only had time for one post last night - had to keep going out to the garage. It's amazing how many things need doing in the garage some nights. I was up to 11pm putting her to bed and making sure she was comfortable. Missus kept laughing but did join me enjoying the new music blaster, fiddling with seat positions etc. So far the uconnect is amazing - makes my ex-Subaru seem like a dinosaur. Still dark outside this morning - better go and see if she is still cosy and likes her new home

I was told this as well and given the reason that they have had too many angry calls from people who think they are not getting the colours or options that they ordered.

I would think that the build sheet is accurate "as built" including any changes made along the way. With this and a few shipping differences maybe CJD Oz swap the numbers around if they need to. What may have started as your E number may not be your end E number
