Camped at port Stephens for a week and got the Jeep our on the beach most days.
this I thought was cool from the other day, nice to see the comparison.

New beadlocks arrived, Method 101 beadlocks. They are a work of art. Thanks to Stu from Murchison Products for helping to source these.

Finally got all my lighting sorted out. I had to go with an unusual sized lightbar (43") to mount it the way I wanted to on the Smittybilt XRC bar.

I forgot to take night time pics when I was out fishing so it will have to wait until next time but I'm really impressed with the 4 Stedi cube spots on the top.

Went for a quick drive out to Sturt National Park and Cameron's Corner.

Nice drive but it was bloody hot, few overheating issues to try and fix.

Rino-lined my front bar. Looks nice, but contrary to what I have heard, it definitely does scratch.

What were the overheating issues?

I am looking at the JL. I have read that Wranglers in Australia have had overheating issues in the past so it is a concern for me.

CRD + Auto. First time was a long, high load, low speed hill climb. Then trying to maintain 100kph on dirt roads in 40 heat. Has a new fan hub + poison spyder bonnet vent.

Different motor/trans combos in the JL, would expect them to behave differently.

Have you got a aftermarket trans cooler? The autos need it, the stock setup is junk and if the trans needs to slip a lot which it would have done on the dirt roads, the fluid temps rises very quickly. The heat from the trans fluid radiates into the coolant radiator and intercooler and leads to rising engine temps (if the trans hasn't overheated already). Get a proper auto trans cooler and its all good.
