Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

Looks like it uses the vertical bolts into the radiator support, this means they won't retro fit other Aus delivered vehicles

Cheers

Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

How does point this compare to the 2011 models? Different?

The big question to Jeep Australia is very simple

Is the trail hawk a different chassis to the pig in the poke that was forced upon us in 2012 /13 models ?

If yes then Why?

Will the recovery points fit the 2013 model and if not why Not.

Why was it such an issue telling us that we had to have chassis for European models etc

I am starting to think that we get told a whole lot of lies and they what ever comes into their heads at the time

Your last sentence covers it all. I don't think they tell lies, well not knowingly. It is hard to tell lies if you have your head in the sand and don't have a clue about the products you are promoting.

Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

I bet they do not have the hooks and that they are just using the USA pictures.
It is not hard to put bolt'ons on a car and call it a different model. This model is just a sticker pack and will disappoint anyone who thinks it may come with the USA spec'ed recovery hooks.
The best you can expect is the shitty afterthought hooks with red paint.

Spoke to Ellie at heart land chullora and he has confirmed that recovery hooks on trailhawlk can't be fitted on standard 2012+ jgc.

Very very disappointed. Can't believe they would do this to us.

Did Ellie give a reason - what is physically different? Or did he just give the easy "no" answer without really checking?

Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

i stand corrected. Just found one on Carsales that has the red hooks.
Unusual they have the recovery hooks. May be Jeep AU heard the backlash from the '12/'13 owners. I wonder id the '14 will have them

Ellie gave no reason. If he did I would have been the most surprised person in the world.
