Cheers' the rims are the very first OEM "Arrowhead" rims in the UK which will be fitted as standard on the 2008 Grand Cherokee Overland and S-limited.

The hitch is the standard height and design for the UK which is a real pain. (good for ploughing though!!). We can only fit UK approved hitches.

I think if my hitch had to be that low, I'd forget about towing anything!

Nice pics. Always good to be outdoors. What's the reason for having four crossbars?

After dragging the hitch across a few rocks today I'm going to look at removing the electrical connector from the hitch and just remove the hitch when I don't need it.

I never get tired of Derbyshire!

Four roofbars... I bought two from the dealer for £150 :eek: and was going to buy a rack to fit for luggage, then found and won two more on ebay for £2!!!! I thought they'd make a neat rack which is also lower for entering car parks.

I have four as well, The mega warrior was so large that I wanted the extra support if I carry a load.

The nearest town is Sheffield where I live!! :D

This route is about 5 miles/ 15 mins from us and there are quite a few more local. The toughest is Stanage Edge but it needs a lift and mods to get across without damage.

Unfortunately there is a lot of pressure to close all these routes to vehicles from enviromental groups. This route dates from the 1700's as a turnpike road and has never been surfaced.

I used to work for the fire service in Derbyshire. I had to attend a broken unimog at the heights of abraham so drove up there in a land rover defender. Great day out!!

removing and reinstalling the hitch is easy enough once you know how:D it took me 45 minutes to fit my witter one after I worked out how to get it to sit where it needed. remove the plastic push nut clip things from the lower part of the rear bumper

I thought about it for wheeling and decided it was high enough

Lol :D just realised what you meant with cico's comment. I would be worried if the wheel was on the left when we have to sit on the right. :eek:

Its more annoying than anything else scraping along at the rear.

I'm replacing the rear bumper so I'll have a look at where I can mount the electrics and the easiest way on and off.

I had wondered about a us hitch. Can I get a UK towball to fit a reciever?? and would it be legal here??
