Re: WK2 DownUnder

So yesterday I went in to my dealer and got my new/replacement tow hook fitted..... While in there the dealer also told me that he had ordered a replacement satnav cable for me that would be fitted free of charge once the part arrived. According to the dealer this was because some owners had been having trouble with their satnav's. My satnav is Ok but apparently other owners have been having "trouble" with their.... no exact details of what "trouble" actually means. Campaign/Recall number 12-042 and ordered Part Number is K68194555AA. Anyone having "trouble" with their satnav?

Hi Brig,

They are replacing gps antennas on some models due to loss of signal.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Any one in Perth, Western Australia want to take a run up to Lancelin one Saturday to try out their new GC in the dunes.

I'm looking to go asap and don't want to embarrass any of my mates with their Toyota's..

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am now seeing a JGC on a daily basis. We get asked all the time about ours, but many are turned off by it not being a 7 seater. That being said many cars the size of a JGC do not have a usable 3rd row unless they are dwarfs or under 6.

Looking forward to the pictures after dark. Did you get the Mopar one with various colour LED's or just the colour that matches the cupholders etc?

I tried out my GC on Stockton Beach the other day. Not quite WA, more like Newcastle NSW. It went great on the soft dry stuff and on the hard packed wet sand but in between was terrible. Recent storms had pushed up berms of soft wet sand and that was nasty. Got bogged twice but the maxtrax got me out no sweat. I was experimenting with tire pressure. I went down to 150kpa but should have gone further. I have since bought a proper tyre deflator to replace the stick I used. Also I used the sand/mud setting which sets the height to OR1. Next time I'll go to OR2. It is interesting that once the Jeep's little brain realises you are stuck, the traction and stability control shuts off so as to allow the wheels to spin. Wish is accordance with the manual but not always such a good idea in sand. Nevertheless it was useful when using the maxtrax. Will have another go in a few days. BTW, having the air-dam on was not issue whatever.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Is that the tugboat which pulled you off the Maxtrax (3rd image) ?

Built the kit myself, for around $40. Uses the same aqua blue lighting as the console.

Really interested in how you acheived this. Ambient lighting around the footwells would look superb, especially matching the existing. Are you happy to pass on the details, wiring etc....buy you a beer or two if you are ever in Qld?
