Re: WK2 DownUnder

My WK2 has taken its first big train trip. It went from the New Boston Rail Services Yard, Michigan to the Toledo Walbridge Yard, Ohio. It took two and a half days to travel 74km. Only 16,000km to go to Sydney.

Hey, what's this hook on the bottom at the back? Is it a recovery tow hook?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yep... It's a hollow consolation for the lack of front hooks.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

For those in Canberra.
Did u know that there is a JEEP Apparel shop in Westfields Belconnen?
They have a Sale on with Jeep Logo T-Shirts $10 as well as trousers, shirts etc. All very cheap. Looks like it is closing down, so if you want the gear to go with your car....
I happened to stumble upon it while in Canb for the weekend.
Now I got the clothes... waiting for the car....

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I bought some Jeep clothing the last time I was in Malaysia. Even managed to squeeze a Jeep branded umbrella into my suitcase

Re: WK2 DownUnder

There's a Jeep outlet store in Harbourtown Adelaide too. Got some nice cotton shirts for $25 and a key ring bottle opener for $5.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Has anyone purchased a shark fin antenna from the US?
How do they go for reception. I need one due to the antenna being too high and will get ripped off in my garage. So i need a sharky or somthing similar

And another thing.. on my mirrors there are dotted lines on the outside, about a 1/4 of the way in. What are these? Something to do with blind spot assist if you have it fitted?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Those dotted lines are the blind spot indicators. They light up orange when there is something in the blindspot.
