I've noticed an electronic buzz sounds. Comes and goes, figured it was thinking about something....

So much better than the useless Jeep Australia supplied hook.

Also finally got around to installing my new UHF radio

What are the benifits of the Chief ones, they are really expensive.

You get 2 hooks and no more than the Jeep Australia one.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

$289 for one hitch point is a lot for what it is? Or is it for two?

This electronic buzz is it a high pitched humm and does it change frequency when you load up the the steering wheel. I have a humming noise in mine and it's been traced to the electric steering pump.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I think it has something to do with the air suspension.... but it is just a guess....

They aren't cheap, $289 each, but I'd prefer one of these over the Jeep Australia version. It sits too far back in the bumper to be useful, and looks difficult to hook on to. The design of the Chief hooks looks better too, the Jeep ones require a bracket to right angle it, the Chiefs bolt straight on, looks a more robust design.

But if you want to hide the hook, then the Jeep one doesn't stick out as far, just not as functional in my opinion.

2 hooks look cool to me:

I would have to fit air suspension for that theory to work.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Has anyone hit the 20,000km service mark, if so how much did the service cost and what consumables were replaced?
Thanks in advance.
