    Congrats on the Jeep!!!

    After driving the diesel on a couple of trips, you won't look back. the low down torque is addictive

    Looking forward to seeing you on an outing with us soon...

    Ek hoor daar is iets by Chloorkop die Sondag. As ek nie by die werk gaan nie, miskien maak ek a draai soon toe. Het iemand die GPS co-ordinates vir die plek?

    Chloorkop 10:00 Sondag

    Take Allandale offramp towards Kempton Park
    approx 7km from highway, turn left, sign says Chloorkop
    Straight accross circle, at first stop sign turn left
    Continue straight with this road untill you get to Allandale again. Here the road turns sharply left, but you turn right onto a dirt road - this is the entrance. Follow the dirt road untill you reach the pay point

    Sorry, don't have GPS co-ords, but it is very easy to get there

    Yourself, friens and family, recovery gear if you have

    We normally do a braai afterwards, so I take some wors, bread rolls and something for the thirst Some stay for the braai, others not, and we understand that time is sometimes limited, but a braai afterwards is always great

    Congrats. Now you can go through life and know that you at least had that one moment of pure BRILLIANCE. Only thing I regret is not getting it 15 years earlier!!!

    Default Yes, I got it!

    Thanks for all the good wishes
    I took delivery of my Silver Rubicon this afternoon! Eish! What an ride home. Now I have of plenty reading to do. It is like being back at school. This is my 1st 4x4 vehicle. The last time I drove a 4x4 was Landy (may I use this word here ), many years ago.
    Previously Disadvantaged, you have 1 awesome 4x4! The CRD was a 50/50 choice.

    Sounds like fun except what I know about off-roading is scary

    I am considering the Wrangler...from one PD to another. How are you finding it? Is the fuel consumption as bad at many say?

    Default Wrangler 4 door

    P.D.... Welcome to the JK Club.... I purchased my 2 door CRD 2 door auto in Nov 09 and am having fun in it. When it comes to buying a towbar, give me a PM and I will advise you after learning a few truths trying to find a suitable unit.....

    What are they saying?

    I know there are 101 threads on the Forum regarding fuel consumption, here is my 2c. I have no problem with the consumption (15.2l/100kms - on average) on my auto petrol. Others might have heart failure at that. My wife drives the Cherokee and averages 19.5l/100kms going from Bryanston to Sandton daily and still I have no problem with it, whereas anyone with a sane mind would baulk at it. One of the mods, Dirk has on his signature that the one thing he needs everytime he leaves the house is his petrol card! - Scaring you yet?

    Forget the horror stories about fuel consumption, once you have driven the JK, you will realise the fuel bill is worth it. Read the thread "which Jeep accessories", you will see that we JK owners are not of sound mind anyway. It isn't just a vehicle, it's an addiction and we have dealers all over the Forum who will be more than happy to feed that addiction, the nice thing is that they are addicts too .

    I wish you the best of luck in your choice and hope to see you in a Jeep soon.

    diesel JK - lots of town driving 13l/100km.... steady 120km/h 11.5km/h...

    nothing wrong with that...

    if you drive any 'proper' 4x4 you'll not really beat 12l/100km... have a look at the thread on Suzuki 2.4 fuel consumption... I'd be annoyed with that, it;s not even a Jeep!!!

    From what I hear the V6 JKs are very good on consumption too... I had a 2.4 Colt 4x4 before my tdi, 18l/100km was more the order of the day... the Tdi made 13l/100km... I think the V8 Jeeps are a bit scary, but then I've owned a Disco 2 V8... that was scary... 24l/100km anyone? and not enough power to pull the skin off a melktart for all that fuel...

    and ask a Defender owner what his consumption is ... and I mean REALLY, when he tells you 10l/100km ask him why he has 100l extra tank and 4 jerry cans on the roof then.... at 120 those things drink fuel, if they manage it.. I think they call it a 110 because that is the maximum speed...

    Default Jeep Wrangler 2.8 CRD

    Hi to all the Jeep guys.

    I have a question.

    I sold my Jeep and are reading like crazy, to see what n want to do.

    Let say I buy the Wrangler 2.8 crd auto, for me I have to change the wheels to 33" or 35" as I don't like the look of the standard wheels on them, and then if I am right I need to lift the vehicle to fit those size wheels 2" or 3" lift.......................what will happen with the fuel consumption when this changes are done.

    Thanks guys.

    33's won't make much of a difference other than improve the look. The 35's however are a different kettle of fish.

    Before swapping and changing for the sake of it, come up with a plan. Make sure that you don't duplicate mods, that makes it hell of an expensive in the long run. If ultimately you want to run 35's then start there, not at 33's
