Great ride, just got back from a 10 day camping trip. Usually pulling 40 km/h on the steepest hills (old but luv'd pathfinder) this thing I could do 120km without going over 3K revs.

A few weeks earlier than ours....according to the dealer it will arrive Brisbane on the 10th and we get it on the 28th or 29th. We ordered 23 September so you are doing well.
Good thing it's getting here soon as I need to get off this computer and get on with putting all its towing and rear module stuff in so we can hook up the van and get away!!
I've had all the stuff out on the bench for weeks now.....

They also charge the iPads and connect with wireless headphones to watch movies. They are yet to be hardwired, in the next week or so.

Swampy how did you do the hard wiring? Did you have to permanently use the 12 Volt connection in centre console?

Hi

I had a Car Stereo installation shop hard wire the iPad holders in for me and they turn off and on with the ignition.

This guy in Perth was highly recommended and they did a great job.

My understanding is that Jeep uses something like Can Bus wiring so I would suggest that you get someone who knows what they are doing.

Not sure if that is fact or fiction but worth asking about.

From memory the DC outlet in the centre console maybe a permanently on outlet.

Your's has caught upto mine (or someone elses if the Dealer cannot resolve my upholstery issue). I believe these cars will be loaded onto the ship on the 8th Feb.
I would like to know what is happening to PWYSS's Jeep. It went into the JAVA yard early last month, and has not been mentioned in the Tracking since. Come to think of it, nor has PWYSS. Maybe he told them to stick it.

So you think it will be the Endurance? She is right now steaming up Chesapeake Bay for Baltimore. She should dock in a few hours and is due out on 8th heading our way.

Ok, can as well update all of you....

I wish I knew what is going on with my Jeep.

Exchanged some PMs with Milous and I know that my GC had some transit damage and was fixed up (that's the Java yard) but since then the tracking does not update and Milous only knows what the tracking says.

There is a possibility that just the tracking does not update but the car is actually moving so I will wait another day and then check on the "Endurance". If I can't see it on the ships manifest I will have to try and kick the dealer into action. The dealer has the same non-updating tracking info and getting him to actually do something more than just repeat what I already know will be the big challenge.

It would help me if you can let me know once your car appears on the ships manifest so I know that they have been loaded.

Thanks
Peter
