Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I got the Jeep to get away from it all... including the NBN. I guess I'm a Luddite

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I am trying to remember who purchased a My14 in Karratha, I am trying to find out the name and number of the service agent there. The dealer has posted my reversing camera and mud flaps up, I can fit the mud flaps but I want to get the camera done by and agent seeing they are paying for it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I think they must have unloaded my wagon from the railcar, parked it the back corner and forgotten about it.
Seems like everybody else's are loaded and on the way.

Watch this space if you are interested in a Summit.
Iboughtajeep, sent you pm asking for a copy of the summit specs, given my Overland is off the production line only a few weeks ago, so different to your comparison, but no answer from you, nor have you posted the comparison that you were going to, any update to this please ? ? ?

My fm reception is also poor and drops out much earlier than other vehicles.

salmo, reckon yours will on the Taiko, due to leave on 8 October (9th Aussie time). Mine was supposed to be on that ship as well, but must have arrived and still had room on Tonsberg. Yours arrived too late for that ship and Taiko is the next one.

I can only hope, with a bit of luck they might get a tail wind and still get into Port Adelaide on the 11th Nov.
Cheers

I got an overwhelming response to this. For those who PM me I will reconfirm the info in the next 48hrs and post.
It could be bulls#*t so don't get your hopes up.

BTW stopped by the dealer to see my Laredo CRD. It was covered in bird crap. Still looked good though. No sign of the reverse camera, was tempted to bring her home.

It must be done, it will be done, itís inevitable. I will only cost more later, and cost us from and international tech standpoint.
While I understand the Libs standpoint that the $13 billion (their inaccurate figure) difference that their solution will provide is greatly needed elsewhere at the moment, itís myopic.
By the time their solution is completed, it will be out-dated.
It is like the M5 in Sydney or the Monash in Melbourne, by the time they finished their construction, they were already too small and congested. They knew it from the original planning too.
It just pushed the economic problem onto another government.

We have a unique problem here though, nearly the same land mass of the US, but a population smaller than Northern California. So the cost per capita is greater than other countries have to deal with.
But that is why the cost of living in Aus is so high too.

Donít talk to me about wireless because that bandwidth is so small regardless of speed itís next to useless for tech solutions.

So the government investment in this is not to just create business for ISPs, but to allow for entire industries to exist in the near and far future.
And that is our return, creating and environment that industry can exist to employ people. In the same way we have spent billions on the car industry.
This is why it gets praised by so many foreign nations that have no dog in the fight, because they are already there or heading there and can see what they get out of it now, let alone as the entire first world globe heads that way.
For all of labours moronic faults that rightly had them booted from govt, this basic concept and Conroyís handling of the telco industry was fantastic.

Guess I did get political, completely wrong place for it.
Sorry to upset you SNUKE. I don't want to get political also but everything you have written is nothing but crap. Let's just wait for the real cost benefit analysis to come out. You may not but I certainly do believe it was "back of an envelope stuff". Hundreds of Billions of Debt and this NBN stuff was kept off the Books so not included in debt figures. I'm going out to buy a $100,000K computer for the office next week. I'm not going to worry about the interest bill or whether it renders me bankrupt, because hey, I will be leading the world in home office computers.

Nope, and not exactly well counter pointed.
But lets not get into a flame war on this.
