So frustrated!! The new toy is sitting at the car yard, Can't be delivered as they are waiting for a part for the hand brake.... So close, yet it feels like forever before I can get my hands on it....

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Has anyone noticed the GC Trailhawk, displayed on Jeep Australia's Facebook page?
They say that it comes with "both front recovery hooks" which gives me the impression that Jeep may have reverted back to the old 2011 chassis.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I have the latest RHP software upgrade 2.126 as well as the latest Gracenotes on DVD if anyone in NW Sydney wants to collect and update.
They both work, as I did the upgrades last weekend.

Apparantly thats the case, where its reported "2012 owners won't be to happy now the hooks are re-introduced". Not sure wether they are back in the 2013/2014's or just the Trailhawk?

I've been following that update thread but can't workout what enhancements are included other than stability/retaining tracks/stations. Can you advise any benefits. Cheers.

I haven't noticed any difference in the screens or the performance.
The Gracenotes update appears to have captured the album cover images, so that's probably a visable enhancement.

Haven't checked my MY13, but it has the screw in tow eye in the boot so I'm guessing I have the shortened chassis.

It's a photo of a US Trailhawk. If they come here, then they'll have the same export front end.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ok ... I hadnt seen that report.

That's annoying then. Makes sense as the euro pedestrian requirements were never enacted in Australia.

Or, there maybe a redesign of the way the hooks are mounted.
