Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hope it isn't a MY12, and it's taken that long to be shipped to Darwin.

Enjoy the ride

lol, the exceptionally long wait was because the initial order was for a MY13 (Del Jan 13) and I changed it in November for a MY14 but the fact that I didnt get one of the first ones to arrive in Australia is purely due to dealer slackness.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

As far as delivery to Darwin goes, it got off the boat on 25/7, arrived by train on 14/8, so yeah, things do take a while to get here

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Have just sent off to the States (Moparone.com) an order for the chrome honeycomb grille inserts. These come from the Summit.
The Laredo grille is rather bland so these should trick up the Deep Cherry red somewhat!!

Amazing cost for 7 chrome inserts were; US$22.69 plus US$52 for freight to front door. 6-10 days delivery. (Take note Chrysler/Fiat/Dodge/Jeep/RAM/Alfa etc)

Self installed, not easy though.
Also ordered chrome door sill scuff plates with Grand Cherokee stamped.

I think Webber got some.

Anyways, Red Devil 1 week in OZ tomorrow, probably still on Swanston Docks. (Melbourne)
US photo of grille inserts below.

Contacted the dealer yesterday to get an eta on the towbar which was ordered in january.... he advised that parts have started to come thru and they would be prioritized on when car was delivered and he would have to see where I am on the list...

He didn't appreciate it when I said I would start sending him delivery fees for stuff that we can't pick up... the 1st is $500. Hopefully when I drop off car next wednesday and pick it up later in the day the tow bar will be attached.

You would just assume that if 100 people ordered tow bars you would build 100+ tow bars and the applicable wiring for the country....

Phunny you should mention that!!

The yanks started out being feely feely gentle about the installation until they started getting scraped knuckles and forearms then resorted to cutting out the original PVC grille inserts with stanley knives and saws.

That then makes for easier installation of the new chrome inserts.

There goes the expertise!!

Correct... and from sa.... how's the vr trialling going.... I'm going to spend some time seeing what my car can do on the weekend as I have to document all issues before wednesday.

Last night when I said to go home... it asked if I wanted to ring 00.

And when I asked to ring my partners mobile it said it was ringing her work number but instead did ring her mobile number....

And later it read out a text message while I was in motion.... I thought it would only do that while stationery...

I'm going to have to rename the jeep to something female... as it definitely had a mind of it own.... and is more hormonal than a pregnant partner with twins....

Steve

But on the bright side.... it's more fun than my last car which was a subaru liberty spec b.... it's just so temperamental and a bit too precious!!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

finally after waiting a month I will have the tow bar fitted Friday. Waited 9 month for the Jeep and 1 month for the accessory. Was also told that that jeep australia will have a fix for the U connect shortly. More waiting, waiting
