Newbie from Western Australia

Introducing myself - from Western Australia. Owner of a 2012 Grand Cherokee WK2, diesel. My first Jeep, and so far, excellent. This is the export model, and from what I read, it's only just coming onto the US market.

Tested it over several hundred miles in the outback, no cellphones out there, I always take a satellite phone. Very rugged on the tyres - er, you guys say tires - and I replaced the standard supply tyre with a set of Coopers.

For what you get for the $$ the vehicle stacks up very well alongside the trusted Toyota Landcruiser, the Mistubishi Pajero and the Nissan Patrol, all of which are showing their age, technically speaking. It reminds me of the demise of Landrover 30 years ago. Jeep is technically way ahead, and up there with the best (and extremely expensive) European 4WD's.

A few questions and comments, I'll save them for later.

Welcome, I'm also from WA, have had my GC Overland for 6 weeks now and I love it, had a WJ for 7.5 Years and loved that too.

Mines the V8, once you have a V8 you can never go back, looking fwd to trying out on the Lancelin sand dunes in the next couple of weeks..
