Re: WK2 DownUnder

I'm seeing sooo many new WK Grand Cherokees on the roads it's amazing. I drove the WH for 5 years and you were lucky to see another one days. I even had one day in Brisbane when I pulled up at the lights and there were 3 of us all in Black Grands next to each other WTF, that never happens.
A, still lovin the jeep after 22000 km and 8 months. Love the fuel economy, and tows well.

Last Sunday I pulled up at a set of lights and you'd be excused for thinking jambo had come to town early.

Front row was me in the right lane, a silver wk2 in the left lane, pathfinder (ring in) in the middle lane, a mineral gray WK2 behind the pathfinder, a black wrangler behind me, and a new blue compass behind him. I had first noticed the other wk2's but then spotted the other jeeps. The pathfinder driver was looking at mine, until the lights went green and then he was swamped by jeeps.

A slightly funny event last night. It was my dad's 83rd birthday, so I've gone to get a cake after work and was parked in front of the cake shop which is next to a fish and chips shop. On coming out with the cake, there's two old guys waiting for their fish & chips, with their faces to the window of the GC having a look inside. One says to the other "it's criminal having a 4WD that looks this good".

I pretended not to hear anything, got in and drove off.

And to think I was originally contemplating a patrol, pathfinder or pajero.

Yeah Jeep nailed it this time with looks and interior, I did the LED lighting in the foot wells as well, looks great, and relativly simple to put in. http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=42530,

Savvas I notice you have done that mod as well.

Same here and have been for quite sometime - during work hours that is (public service made my work redundant but they won't make me redundant).

And there isn't much input on this forum nowadays either. So thanks allypally for giving me 3 minutes less boredom today.

Have been doing that for 10 months.

Researched, bought, added: chrome fog covers, door sills, pedal kit, bug deflector, waxing and cleaning products...

Whinged about JGC issues such as no front tow hook, lousy sat nav and paint defects.

Researched places to take the beast on tour and now I need a redundancy so I can get out there and put it all to good use rather than snoozing in it during the day. haha
