Whoot Mud! That is what I have ordered too! Just waiting to hear back from the dealer as to IF they have found one here in NSW and WHEN the bloody thing will be ready! Also RTA is taking their time with my number plates too.

Good luck with the sale!

Great info!! You will love your JK. I have had mine less than a week and sometimes I have to hold myself back from just going and sitting in it for a while!

Which dealer in Brissie did you get yours from Aussie.
I have not been finding them too helpful or knowledgable.

Call the nearest dealer(s) to see what they have in stock.

These are the Qld dealers according to the jeep.com.au website

Albion: www.chryslerjeep.com.au

Tweed: www.tweedautomotive.com.au

Bundy: Bundaberg Prestige 07 4151 1923

Holland Park: Leo Muller Chrysler Jeep 07 3243 7766

Redcliffe: www.qldjeep.com.au

There are a few other dealers, but we are talking Cairns and a few other out of the way places.

Violet Rose :wave:

Mud 06-21-2007 01:09 PM

Yeah, I know which ones are out there,
I just get the cold shoulder when looking at them.

Its seems that unless I have a huge wad of money on me they dont wanna know me.

I'm hoping Aussie had a better expereince with someone.

I bought mine from SVM in Chatswood and they were excellent and I don;t look like I have a wad of money... ancient goth girl here. Just walk in again and make sure you have a good mind set that you are going to get what you want. Makes a difference! My car was originally ordered through Lincorp at Parramatta which was THE WORST experience, basically, all I got was salesman bullsh!t. I asked where my car was and they said they had one for me and they would ring me when it was ready... I found out that they DIDN'T have a car as it was (and still is) sitting in the middle of the ocean on a ship! This had blown the contract date. So, I am waiting for my deposit back...

Go in and demand (nicely) that you get some service!

VR - the are a few Aussies lurking but you will find more Australian applicable info at www.ausjeepoffroad.com

For JK accessories give Wooders from 'Wooders Garage' a ring - www.wooders.com.au he's in Sydney.

I still own a TJ and with around $30K in accessories added I'll be keeping it for a while as I'll never get any of it back. The one draw card the JK has for me is the higher tow capacity, but it still isn't a big enough insentive to upgrade.

I know how you feel. We spent 1 entire day trying to buy a Jk. I have never worked so hard to buy something :eek2:

The only person who seemed to want to do a deal and had any knowledge (Not that he was a expert) was the sales manager at Tweed Jeep.

We have ordered our 4DR Renegade manual CRD in black about 3-4 weeks ago and have been told its on the water and only a week or so away:rotflmao1: :rotflmao1:

Give them a try...

Hi Chili

I have some accessories on order with David Woodley (Wooders).

This is my first Jeep and in fact my first new car and first 4WD, so there is a lot I need to work out but so far I have had fun. I am hoping to get a few Aussie people together with JK's as parts and accessories are so hard to find here and it is great to hear from others in the same part of the world.

I had a similar problem with Lincorp down here in Sydney, all I got was bull shi!t and it wasn't until I put the thumb screws on that I found out that my ordered Jeep was on a boat. They would not tell me until I got narky. They promised a Jeep in 2 weeks and blew it out to 5 weeks. So I rang a dealer that was closer, they had what I wanted on the showroom floor and I told Lincorp where they could go.

I have had my Jeep for a shade over one week and I loooooooooooooove it!

I was told that expected delivery date for boats on the water is around 11th July.

Fat Chili 06-24-2007 04:10 PM

Matt and Leisa - I have seen you logged in on AJOR, where are you guy's, are you on the Mountain (Tamborine) or in the village?

I'm up on the Mountain, Eagle Heights. There are quite a few Jeepers up here.
At least 5-6 TJ's (some modified), a YJ and a couple of CJ's as well as the soccer mum's in their XJ's and KJ's.

aussiemark 06-24-2007 11:49 PM

I have on order a CRD Unlimited in Red Rock, but it doesnt look like it is going to land here ( WA ) until August.... anywhere working with a local jeep shop to do a 3 inch lift, MT Classic rims, 35 inch tyres and AEV front bumper. Will keep you guys posted as I go

From what I understand, the next shipment of JK's arrives within the next couple of weeks. I am not sure if they are arriving here in Sydney or Brisbane where Stock Control is for DC. So, once they count their stock and get the cars ready for shipment, August would be about right.

I would be ringing the dealer in a week or so and ask again.... It would be great to pin them down to a date!

JKohn 06-28-2007 03:55 AM

Hey All,

I finally checked my private msg's - great to see an Aussie thread!!

Hey Fat Chilli- I've been meaning to say this on AJOR for a while but I remember meeting you at Fraser Island a couple of years ago - I was the guy taking photos of your Jeep!!!

Just got my JK Unlimited Rubicon last week and I LOVE IT!!

Hey there,
We live on the side of the mountain just out of the Village. I work on the Coast but my wife is the Paramedic on the mountain.

What jeep do you drive?

I don't know if I can wait that long, this is killing me !!! (silver renegade unlimited)
I'm gonna get mine regeared to 4.10 from the 3.21 gearing. Anyone else considering the same or already done it ???

JKohn 06-29-2007 01:08 AM

Sorry, I'm not an Aussie... I was just looking through. This is completely off-topic, but sounds like you might be a Nick Cave fan!? :)

aussiemark 07-01-2007 06:15 AM

So I did give my dealership a call, they are still saying Aug delivery, but hearing a lot of news about delays, re routing etc elsewhere, so I am not holding my breath. Then have been doing further research on installing the AEV bumper and it looks like it might not be ADR compliant - so rethinking that..... and other info that if I modify the suspension beyond 50mm my insurance isnt valid.....whats the world coming to.

SOLD!!!

Just gotta sort my finance for me new house, and with a bit of luck I'll soon be ordereing my 1st Jeep.

I'm now going for an Unlimited in Jeep Green, Sans Renegade Pack.
I'll probably never use the hard top, I will be putting in my own stereo, and I can get a set of side steps later.

daveaus 07-15-2007 06:21 PM

Nice, thats a big change skyline to wrangler.

Are you sure you don't want the hard top? $2000 is pretty cheap, to try and buy it later would cost a lot more. The upgraded stereo & side steps are pretty much worthless.

I was suprised about just how quiet the softtop was but I will definately be running the hard top all winter.

Are you getting crd or petrol?

Dave

Mud 07-15-2007 06:33 PM

Yeah I'll miss the Skyline.

I live in Brissy, and have been riding a scooter all winter so far. I can manage the cold with a soft top.
We are also in drought here so it never rains which means the top will be down all the time.

Yeah $2500 is pretty cheap for the hard top, but i'm better off paying the extra and getting the 4 door.

I will be getting petrol.

Violet Rose 07-16-2007 12:42 AM

Hiya Mud

Great news to hear that you have sold the Skyline! I would invest in the hard top, seriously... in the Renegade pack you get - hardtop, side step, sub woofer and 6 stacker DVD - well worth the pack and the side steps really do come in handy!

I seriously love my JK... alas, the only off roading so far has been the grass outside my Father's house!

CHOOK72 07-25-2007 11:48 PM

Hi all you Oz JK lovers!
 
Hello all.
Seems there are a few of us out there now!
I've had my 4dr JK (Blk) since May 07 and loving it.
I couldn't wait for a Rubi 4dr to arrive but still very happy :yup:
Getting some accessories from the US that will beef it up a bit once
complete will post some pics...
Enjoy..

CHOOK72 (rego:RKCRLR)

Violet Rose 07-26-2007 04:39 AM

Hiya Chook!

Where in Sydney are you? I'm on the upper north shore and the only JK I see is my own or what was in the dealer yesterday and this morning. I did see a cool black 4dr this morning with chrome tube bumper bars, only saw the back in a fleeting glance - looked great!

This will be happening on the 10th August. Bumper is in with Warn winch and will also put some extra lights possibly IPF or Hella..any thoughts on which brand or lights?
Have a great weekend Violet Rose and to all you JK freaks:crazyeyes:
