Classic one today about if they made a gold version of a GC for Dubai, what accessories would we suggest? Someone got in before me a suggested a camel recovery hook, but there is other's also:-)
nice I have seen those - will add my comments as well...

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has any news for delivery of 2012 Maximum steel CRD.
I've 1st order my Jeep (Dark Charcoal) in Aug 11'. That got canned so I ordered a Max Steel which was quoted to be here in NOV. I'M GETTING SICK OF WAITING!! Dealers latest ETA is mid March.
Anyone in a similar postion with any info?
Also anyone sorted out any compo for lack of tow hooks? I was thinking of aftermarket fitment or getting the Chrome pack put on.

Cheers

The ship Endurance is on its way to us with jeeps on board. It is scheduled in Melbourne on 15 March. See further up how to check if your VIN is on board. There are no after market hooks available that fit the 2012s. Jeep say they are working on it but I'll believe it when I see it.

IT will go to your dealer to fit extras and stuff like that - usually you pick it up from them. Depends how long the car takes to get through customs, compliance, etc to get to the dealer - dealer should only need it for a week max

That is not an order nr. It is in fact the VIN.
I did a checfk, and that car is NOT currently on a ship. Are you sure the number is correct?
The next ship due into Brisbane is the TONSBERG, which is scheduled to berth on 25th Feb. If it were on that ship, it is unlikely you would have it within 1 week. More like 2-3 weeks

Re: WK2 DownUnder

OK. Found your car. You had the wrong VIN. It is 1C4RJFFM4CC191166
It is showing up as being on the TEXAS, however, that does not appear to be a Car Carrier. Strange.
Texas is scheduled to arr Bris:8th Feb, then Port Kembla:, before arr in Melb:13th Feb.
You must have bought a cancelled order, as it was apparently set to unload in Melbourne on 13th Feb, and not Bris.. Sound right to you? You are in Qld?
That would mean, it needs to go through Customs and Compliance there in melb, then be trucked to Qld. I would think the dealer is only guessing their receiving date.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just confirmed that after sitting on the docks for 2 weeks, my GC is booked to be loaded onto the Carmen. The Carmen is right now in Baltimore but over at the Dundalk Terminal offloading BMWs I guess. It needs to come across to the Failfield Terminal to collect the Jeeps. It needs to do it quickly because it's due out today. The Carmen is scheduled in at Port Kembla on 14 March only one day after the Endurance which left Baltimore six days earlier but has an extra stop at Galveston. That's good because I was p...ed off my car didn't get on to the Endurance.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Good to hear, Bob. When the Endurance left, it went from the Dundalk to Curtis Bay, and out the river in what seemed like only a few hours.
