Re: The Towing thread

Has anyone in the past or presently thinking about installing a chip? I have just over 3 tonne of caravan to move around and more power and torque should mean easier pulling? I have been looking at Racechip from Germany which is fairly inexpensive and I would wait till after the first 10,000 km before fitting it. They currently list for the 177kw CRD so will wait till they upgrade the MY14 before buying it.

Re: The Towing thread

GDay Peanut
go here and wade through the pages......Anyone tuned a CRD yet?
A few Aussies are running Bluespark and give it a very good wrap.
The ecodiesel CRD the Australian market is getting in the 2014 puts out 184Kw and 570nm - personally i'm more than happy with my 2012 CRD - but it only drags around 2200Kg.

Re: The Towing thread

The Racechip is basically a plug n play, but a few owners have had to fiddle with the settings to get the formula right for their particular setup.

Hi
I should be getting mine about a week later so please keep us informed as to how you go. I'm also in Brisbane so the name of who you use would be good if they have done a reputable job.
Cheers
Andrew

How did you secure the drawer/fridge module and how do you access the spare wheel?

Smile Re: The Towing thread

Hi
I installed the Blue Spark standard pro tuning box in my13 GC CRD on the weekend and there is a marked improvement in performance. It is to early to say what affect it will have on fuel economy. I tow a 2500KG van and was looking for more torque and it certainly has delivered that.

i've replaced the spare hold down bolt with another bolt with a welded eye, then a turnbuckle to the underside of the module. Because the module frame sits in the spare lift up cover recess it is located all round, and held down by the turnbuckle. Quick and easy to fit - the module has holes cut out in the base so access is available to the pockets around the spare, and in the centre.
I've added a Jeep OEM alloy wheel and tyre to a bracket on the van so when we are travelling I've got that available, plus the steel spare as an extra. And yep, I would have to unload the module if I needed to get it out - takes about 5 minutes....
I've seen photos over on AusJeep of a module a member made that tilted to allow access.

Thanks John. Looks like a neat light weight solution.

I'll let others answer the questions on wieghts, but in respect of the recovery hooks Alex from jeep waitara has advised that the part number is 82212095. I don't think anyone has actually seen a set fitted up yet. Alex was going to order some himself but no news on this front for a while....
