Jeep JK Unlimited – 2014 Polar Edition
My current travel companion car-wise is a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6l, Polar Edition which I got fresh (36 km on the tachometer) in April of 2014. Quite a change to its predecessor this car supports me on my travels.
Update 2016-06: Gobi Stealth roof rack and roof tent.
26 Countries visited so far with the Jeep, no double mentionings:
Often, tires are not mentioned. My Jeep came with the following ones:
BRIDGESTONE D 840 – 255/70R18 113 S
Update – Winter tires: Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT2 – 275/65R18
After some initial learning (selecting/copying music from USB stick to HDD of car takes really long) I am now familiar with the multimedia system.
Currently using audio streaming via bluetooth from mobile phone.
The navi is not a stable one. After hours of zooming and audio streaming it can loose voice(no music, no navi info). So far only car turning off/on with a pause in between resets that – very annoying.
However, after an Update to a later version, most of the annoying part of the Navi is gone.
1) Why the power dome? Basically it gets dirty quite easy and after some rain you drive your private puddle around:
2) Where is the first aid kit / warn triangle?
They are NOT part of the new car, very bad.
Bought a pack including warn west and stored it below the seats.
Tip: check regularly for expiration dates.
3) Do I have equipment to change the tires?
Yes, basic stuff(car jack) is found at the compartment below back door.
4) Service interval of just 12.000km on the V6 3.6l is quite short, especially for long distance explorers.
