Since I don't like the bulbous euro front fender indicators (side markers), since they stick out and could be easily broken (especially offroading), I bought a set of the USA ones.
I thought it would be like my old TJ and I could swap them over in a few seconds
It seems I need to take the fender off
Definitely a step backwards in the design by Jeep (just like the rear headrests).
Yep, one of the rear headrests needed replacing under warranty since it would not fold, which meant I could not drop the seat down to increase the cargo space
What am I supposed to do when the warranty has run out, or it happens on a Sunday miles from any dealer?
At least the monstrous front bumper can be replaced (when funds allow).
Since Jeep keep changing the radio connecting plugs, it is impossible to find an adapter to allow me to install my Parrot hands free kit, and with the built in bluetooth connectivity disabled, it is not a cheap option to restore.
I feel a bit better now I've said that. Just need to wait for a warm and dry weekend to remove the front fenders (not much chance in the UK
After 2 months of ownership, I still like it. It is more refined than my old TJ, but not as refined as a car or other road Jeeps, which is probably why it is not very popular in the UK since Jeep insist on selling it as a luxury vehicle, and price it accordingly, which is why I don't think Jeep will remain in the UK for much longer.
