See if can prices for the tow hooks, maybe you can send some across the ditch.

No tow bar for a few weeks. Waiting for stock parts apparently.
Full tank of petrol to fuel the 5.7 Hemi. So many buttons, it's going to take a while to navigate through it all.

Another word, Sweeeet!!
TJQLD, so cool.. Congrats, post more photos when you can... Love the Cherry Red..

I wonder if that is because they figure you guys get more snow than us... They tend to forget Aussies take their 4WDs off road.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi,
Some interesting posts lately.
My dealer on the Gold Coast supplied a full tank of gas on delivery. Have just driven from the Gold Coast to Mossman (qld) with numerous site seeing diversions along the way (2600k) averaged 9.4l/100km. Did not see one other my14 (you can tell by the drl)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi all
I'm new to this forum but have been lurking around trying to sus out real reviews of the GC.
I've placed an order for my first 4x4 a MY14 Black SRT but delivery not expected until Dec
Yesterday a friend told me they have the exact car I ordered on the show room floor at another dealer. did a little investigating and sure enough it's there but apparently they don't share stock so am unable to get it .... the wait continues

May well be an SA thing new2jeepsa - I am also SA and thought that it was a little disappointing to have the bare minimum of fuel in vehicle ...... along with a couple of other things have left a disappointing taste to what is a major purchase - and all this from a dealership that parades itself as holding the customer at he centre of everything they do!

Good news Salmo, I was a lucky one and got what I wanted in about 30 days.. That was bad enough, many a night I would lay away counting Jeep jumping fences, trying to get to sleep. Nov ain't that far away.. Can't believe I have had BaaBaaa for over a month now.

Can I ask which dealer..... I might have to put the bite on them for at least 1/2 tank min.

Now I don't feel too bad....but have to call dealer tomorrow to see if they have the towbar yet... as it only took one phonecall today to find a h/r towbar that fits the new GC...
