Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

A tit-bit I heard is that the salesperson doesn't get paid for the deal until the car is collected. Use this to your advantage.

Cheers,
Steve

The Chief front hooks and torque wrench arrived this week, now I just need to find the time to fit these chunky units.. How long should I allow?

The hooks are an easy one, maybe an hour. I did the skid-plate at the same time, which meant it took a bit longer.

UHF/CB INSTALLATION

Installed the ICOM IC- 440N at last.

No probs there.
Was worried about the aerial located on the bonnet but room there OK, no catching.
The base unit mounted under the passenger seat easily.
have the handset coming out of the cubby where the USB and lighter are.
Packs away nicely and doesnt interfere with anything.

So all OK, just call Bluey on the road (Literally). Big Red Fire Truck pulling a German van called a Hymer.

TYRE HELP

I've got a flat on my 2014 SRT8 with the Pirelli Scorpion. Most tyre places wont even look at repairing (although havent driven more than 200m with greater than 14psi before pumping) and the next time they can get the same in is september. 2 questions:
-Any thoughts on alternatives - want good quality?
-Do they have to be run flats? All tyre places tell me that it must be replaced with run flats, Jeep dealer had no idea and didnt want to give me advice and pointed me towards the tyre deal

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, dont want to park the car up for a month

cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

As far as "what they have to be".... refer the tyre placard. Personally I'd be uninclined to mix tyres across axle, and would never do it on the front except to limp somewhere.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Not 100% sure where the leak is, I havent been able to locate although I havent spent ages on it. One tyre place said they will look to see if they can fix although they say they shouldn't - will take it there tomorrow

Re mixing tyres, I can get one Pirelli not 2 hence looking for alternatives. Will definately not mix across the axle even with same tyre as there is probably less than 30% on the old tyres

Burger,

Had the auto sparky wire it up to the accessory supply and fitted an inline fuse to it.
Neat fit of the base unit under the passenger seat cavity. Doesnt interfere with the electrical unit (QL pump I think) that is there too.

Channel 40 in Melbourne has to be the Moron Magnet channel for all imbeciles on the road.

I tell you,if they had another brain, most of them,it would be an orphan.

If they want more candidates for the Australian Champion Bogan show on telly, just get them from Channel40 Melbourne. They would win hands down.
