At least yours meets you half way. Mine is fixated by 21 and sometimes fancies the extra freeze factor of a ventilated seat...

What I don't understand is why these faults are only with a few cars, especially since the update should bring them to all having the same issues or fixes

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I get a bit of what I call diesel clatter at about 20km/h when taking off. Didn't really notice it for the first 850kms, may have been there before but know that I'm aware of it, it seems more noticable. Maybe I had the radio on.
Anyone else notice this, is it normal?
Other than that everything is going well, (fingers crossed)

It seems to want to go at full speed or not at all. I am not looking forward to trying to reverse the van into its parking spot.
I also have a steep driveway and need to reverse my Camper Trailer into a tight location. I have learnt to place the Jeep into Low Range and crawl my way up the driveway. It becomes effortless by choosing the right combination available to you. I hope this helps.

Good luck on the trip it is one I would be considering if I get the opportunity.
Engine air intake is only part of the equation for wading depth, also need to consider the vents for the diffs and gearbox.

I have to say have not looked into where the vents terminate has anyone looked into it?

Thanks for the info, how do you think the QL will go

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Just had a new polished ECB bull bar fitted. It looks great. Hand made sheep skin covers coming next week. I love this car.
Towed my van on the weekend, and I must admit I tried my luck on a dual highway traversing a rather step hill. The challenge was to cruise passed a Toyota LC 200 towing a similar van.
I didn't realise how much black smoke the cruiser could blow. It was hardly a challenge but the other driver got cranky after being passed and tailgated me all the way to the next town. Oh what a feeling.

Great another one for Jeep. Did you get the bull bar with winch where they have to slightly modify bodywork or the the one where they do not touch the trim. Can you post photos as I am thinking of getting one fitted but which one.

I did not need a winch, it is simply a tow tug besides why would I take such a beautiful car off road?

Not sure how to post a pic

They still cut the trim as there is an aluminium bash plate that goes under the front of the vehicle. Not a super strong one but it still offers protection.

If anyone is on the sunshine coast and needs one, the company that fitted mine was fantastic. Never meet trades people like them. They loved the car as much as I do. They also fit all off road accessories and my ECB was fitted for $500 less than there nearest competitor.

$2,315 fitted and fitted properly.

cheers
