Re: WK2 DownUnder

I was told you could not get CRD & 70th, bet it will be a rare model if you do get one.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Was told color called flat black, not sure about it but suspect no metallic, could be like a taxi in the 70s or 80s,
I had to take a boring as bat s.... silver one.
On 70th believe 150 of each engine have been built,

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yeah I was initially told that i had a choice of either silver or flat black, like the black they do the wrangler in. I chose the silver because metallic black is hard enough to keep clean let alone flat black! Nightmare! Anyway the dealer rang me about 2 weeks later saying he could get one of the last brilliant black ones if I wanted it, so I did. Stoked now!

The brilliant black is yet another fallout casualty from the Japan tsunami apparently.

No "flat black". There is "Black Clear Coat" (glossy) and the Brilliant Black Crystal (metallic).

Review of the new CRD: http://www.goauto.com.au/mellor/mell...2578B600265B06

I notice they do not have the 70th with CRD as an option....

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Picked up mine yesterday, laredo, QL, custom leather and chrome styling pack. I did 500Kms yesterday and didnt want to stop driving. This car has exceeded my expectations. I have never had anything to do with chrysler or Jeep before but this car has really impressed me. Being a guy who loves gadjets i love the Uconnect system! Very impressive. To all those that are waiting i promise its worth it, just hang in there.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

flat black confirmed as non metallic black, some buyers might not like that, as we have payed a premium for the 70th, $500 paint?
as for no 70th CRD, my guess is there all sold,
have seen Chrysler US order,
my vin BC.....
odometer 1
customer name, and its me,
and the last section of the order the dealers name whom i purchased it from,
as for enforcer, and just guessing but no vin, no car?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

As mentioned I got my GC yesterday, the only gripe I would have is that the antenna is too long, It doesnt fit my garage by about 50mm. Ive been to a couple of places to try and find a short antenna to screw in with no luck and cant find anywhere that sells or installs shark fins (yet). If anyone has any ideas that would be great. My jeep should be in its nice protective cubby hole!

Also if anyone is interested ive done about 650km mainly country driving and im averaging 10.9/100 with the V6.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just order the shark fin and do the 5min install. It looks like a piece of cake and will be my first mod.
