Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

I just got back from a week at Fraser. It had the deepest softest sand I have ever seen there all the times I have been there. I've done it in a triton, 120 prado and now the jeep. The jeep is an...

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

Just got back from another week on Fraser Island. No problems at all. We were in high and low and mostly sand mode unless we forgot. In fact I think it performed better than the first outing last...

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Should be fine as long as you aren't towing anything and not going on any narrow trails so a rescuer can get to the rear. Might be preaching to the choir but needs to be said- don't use the tow ball...

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

I doubt it. The tyres actually pretty good for sand driving and I have them and didn't have a problem. The prevailing theory (although others will disagree) is you don't want an aggressive tread for...

Re: Colour Prices

I believe all colours except white attract a $500 surcharge on any model. There has been conjecture around this being charged on non pearl variants. For mine it is more about total cost of purchase....

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

I mentioned this to my dealer and he wasn't the slightest bit interested. You are generally a week or two ahead of their system. I was told my car definitely missed a boat but I was tracking it...

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

The Von is a US thing. We have order numbers, the fact that they are the same as a von is lost on most people in the supply chain in oz. I understand the order process to be.

Re: WK2 - Minor Fault Summary

I don't even think I have one. I havent looked too hard though. I believe it is fitted like a tailgate of a ute. So when you open the boot nothing comes tumbling out on top of you.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

How keen are you for the ELSD? Just get skid plates and tow hooks added to a STD laredo. It already has the 18" tyres and selec terrain and The CRD gives you the 3.45 rear diff and 220mm axle.
