Enjoy.

Hi Wayne. The idea of the change was to overcome that sort of thing. It's Diesel also. and Looooooooooooooow Range. No more embarrassing moments

One thing to watch is steering vibration BAD if you put a lift kit on it. Jeep had their own lift kit in one of their vehicles and had heaps of problem with steering.

Other then that they will go just about everywhere.

I also have an X-Trail and I know their limitations as far as off road goes.

Cheers

Hi Steve,

We picked up a diesel sport in late November and am absolutely loving it! Not a huge amount of offroading yet but the few times we have, it's been great. I definately prefer the basic style and more rigid feel to taking cruisers or patrols offroad (do this a fair bit with work).

You can get a good deal on accessories at the moment direct from the US with the exchange rate.

Discount Jeep Parts

Have fun!

Tristan
