Re: The Towing thread

Perhaps ideally.

I don't believe that dealer activation applies in Australia. Everything should work as expected once connected up.

Re: Cooling fan overworking

From advice I received at the dealership, this is a fault in the latest flash relating to the transmission shift logic recall. A patch or updated flash will be forthcoming soon.

Re: Off Road 18"s

To minimise wear noise you need to rotate... and frequently. I move mine around every five thousand, which is obviously a PITA.

275 is well inside the fender/guard. To protrude, the offset would require fender/guard trimming and/or running at above normal ride height... that's if you want to go around corners anyway.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Interesting. I was sure the ones I had on my other MY14 left quite a bit of the sump exposed. Maybe it was just the front edge, or a gap? My bad if so.

I've been told that the post-recall fan issue is related to DPF regeneration, though it sounded more like it was in response to a "phantom" regen.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

The actual damage count is probably under-represented, simply because the risk obviously requires such careful management when off road.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

According to a Jeep employee, the timing of the post S49 fan noise is due to a false DPF regeneration condition occurring.
