My GC was sitting in Curyis bay for just over 3 weeks, i know how you feel that it missed the last ship.
When i got my GC i went over it, and it was perfect.

Enjoy

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Much cheaper, more reliable and you can move their locations.
Sort of defeats the purpose of having a central media unit "mygig"
In my old GC I replaced the stock unit with a double din NAV Radio.
Got rid of the hands free car kit.
The TOM TOM.
The reversing camera monitor.
Wifes DVD player (that was bad she sat it against the airbag)
All these were stuck on the dash.

Have you checked your VIN on Track & Trace?

Mine on the build status tracking says that it is still at Curtis bay however when I enter the VIN on Track & Trace I find that it has passed through the Panama Canaal and is on its way to New Zealand.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ok mine has come up in the track and trace but as expected it on the ANIARA with a port kembla arrival on the 28/11/2011 so much for the 16/11 delivery date. Well that is progress at least.

Btw you can track the ship when you put in the vessel name on this site.

Yeah, mine has come up on w2global as well.

Progress is good.

Hopefully the ship comes early (doubtful)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

WK2 Owners Unite! -- We NEED aftermarket support

We need more companies to provide support for our platform.

I have contacted ARB and have been provided this link to petition ARB Senior Management to begin supporting the WK2 platform:
http://www.arb.com.au/contact/international/

Below is the message I left for them, but you may leave one in your own words (or just copy and paste mine):

"Please begin providing support for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 platform. I appreciate the great products you produce, but unfortunately I have learned that they are not available for 2011-12 Jeep Grand Cherokees. Our community is eagerly awaiting lift, roof rack, snorkel, steel bumper and locking diff options for our platform.
Thank you!"

The ARB Representative that I spoke to stated that the corporate executives in Australia would probably consider looking at producing accessories for our Truck, if they were to receive 500+ messages.

Got this reply today.

"Thank you for your enquiry to ARB.

Historically there has been very low demand for Jeep Grand Cherokee products. Engineering time is limited and there have been many new model vehicles consuming that time. Between this and the historically low demand the Grand Cherokee has not made it to the top of the priority list.

You will be happy to know we are discussing the Grand Cherokee and at least some product development is likely to start in the first quarter of next year. Unfortunately at this early stage I can’t comment on what products will become available and on what time line, except to say there appears to be more interest in this new model Grand Cherokee than previous models.

Kind regards.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It's a numbers game and traditionally GC numbers have always been low. I didn't give Jeep a 2nd look until I actually stumbled on the WK2.

After market specialists will only look at our model when more new converts like me hit the roads. Jeep really needs to get into and remain in marketing overdrive to start scratching the surface of Toyota's and others current Australian marketshare. Only then will ARB and others take the Jeep seriously.
