Hey mate,

Mine is a brilliant black 70th anniversary limited without quadralift. I was told they won't be building any with QL until late this year. I had the choice of bright silver or one of the last brilliant black ones! :-)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

QL is being made for AU right now. Whoever told you that is full of it.
Do you have an ETA, as there are 70th already here in dealers.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well when I ordered mine it certainly wasn't an option. I don't know if things have changed recently, but i called several dealers and all told me the same thing at the time. ETA is about 6 weeks as it's in the holding yard now.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Nut I did not mean on the 70th models, I meant on general on the other models.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Enforcer I wasn't even aware they were making them at the moment. As I said, I was told QL was not available until the end of the year full stop. This was one of the reasons i decided to spend the extra $$ I would have spent on QL on the 70th anniversary model (although it was mainly to get rid of that ugly 'retiree woodgrain'!!)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The overland I tested had QL. What I was told is that Jeep did not order many (or any?) QL's on the low and mid spec models, as they did not thing it would be popular.
This was the same situation with the Overland's mostly ordered with the $3250 rear DVD system. Jeep had an epic fail on their initial order, as the 2 things the decided on were wrong.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I got told the QL wasn't available because a part required for it was made in a factory affected by the Japan disaster, similar to the story with many of the paint colors. However the test vehicles most dealers have arrived before the Japan tsunami happened.
I also read somewhere that all the parts they did have left would go into overlands, so if you wanted QL in another model you would actually be waiting until next year.

Can anyone else confirm or deny?

I am now talking direct to Chrysler Australia and they are building customers orders. I have my VON.

Also Milous has confirmed they don't do production runs. LHD and RHD are all built the same time.

They just cant keep up with US orders, US customers are waiting 3+ months for their cars.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I heard exactly the same thing from the dealer nut. I posted a link to an article here before that said they were starting to produce QL for australia October and we should have them by end of the year?

http://talkingjeepoz.blogspot.com/20...ustralian.html

Seems to be plenty of different stories circulating.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Jasonf that was exactly what I was told. 3 dealers told me it was not even a possibility until October build. So as much as I would have loved QL there was no way I was waiting until December possibly Jan, Feb to get my new GC! I just don't do enough 4x4 anymore to warrant waiting that amount of time (hence the reason I'm trading a wrangler for a GC)!
