Hi Roaches,

What's reason the chain is needed in car park? Thanks

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

It's hard to run the blower through when there's loads of cars there. Plus there tends to be a lot of icy chunks from the snow pushed off cars before leaving.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

The below is national recall affecting 2014 JGC, quote:

"What are the defects?
Vehicles are equipped with a brake booster that has a center shell, which may corrode over time and allow water to enter.
What are the hazards?
If water enters the centre shell it could freeze, minimizing the vehicle's braking ability and increasing the risk of a crash."

Given winter is approaching, in particular if you line in freezing rejoin or travel to snowy mountain, this defect would have detrimental effect.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I'd suggest that corrosion isn't going to set in quite that fast.

Certainly my GC has made people turn their heads on a number of occasions, maybe due to its shinny colour, DCR.
I'm there from the 12th of July for a week.

Fantastic! I've been googling about driving in snow/ice. Do you intend to fit a snow chain, or soldier on with jeeps all season tyre without one?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

After lots of concern about appearance and weight, I finally decided on a colour coded ARB bar. It looks a lot better than I had anticipated, perhaps even better (in my opinion of course) than the alloy ECB.
So the car and camper are now ready for the Kimberley trip. We'll probably leave next weekend.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Wonder if a similar circumstance exists with Jeep Australia?
Me thinks it is so

The bar looks good. However, can't say I am a fan of that area beside the FCW dome. Looks like they have exposed the radiator.

More likely Jeep AU's banned word list is more like: Service, communications, honesty, professionalism and support
