Re: WK2 DownUnder

One question I had was can you add in the electronic diff for the rear in the CRD at a latter stage? (If you didnt order it originally)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Nope.
You have to get ORA II for ELSD.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

There isnt an aftermarket solution either from what I can see unless someone knows of something?

Don't worry about too much. The 4x4 traction control system you have is still way better than a standard system with LSD. The ELSD is just a refinement. If the ELSD clutch ever wears out, I doubt if one would notice.

Mine is a Feb build (that is when it is inspected, but it actually went through the assembly in Jan. No signs of problems with the CV boots so far, and no other problems yet :cross fingers:

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi I'm currently considering a Nov13 build date Laredo 4x4. Dealer is asking $49k (perth)
Are there any known issues from this build month that I should be watching out for?
Thanks
Simon

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Petrol? Can't think of any specific issues, there was a dpf issue going around for builds mid last year, but that won't affect the petrol.

Dealer has given me a May build, not sure about delivery date. Hopefully the problems haven't crept into May!!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi yes it's a Petrol model. I could be driving one by next week unless I can find a good reason not to pull the trigger on this one.

Thanks for the reply. This site has been so handy for researching the Jeep GC, keep up the good work gents!

Cheers
Si

yeah we tested that out quiet a bit on sunday and those with a locking rear diff you could see the difference it made.
