Dave,

As a new Mutant father don't you think you should have named the baby "Mutie"

Or, since it doesn't back seat drive, "Mute."
===========

Herb,

I suspect that you have good welding shops in your neck of the woods, but just in case, here is a link to Smitty's RV & Welding Shop in Houston. Park the coach in a campground near us and I'll shuttle you around while the Jitney is being worked on. Do it when we are in town. Leaving sometime second week of Feb for FL - maybe.

I used Smitty's for two baseplate installs (manufactured ones) and they are a full fledged welding shop.

We can sit around waiting, drinking special smoothies.

Somebody is going to get a fine class A in Fred. We will miss him! Meet Gwen. 2009 Monaco Camelot KFQ.
Wow!

Didn't Sue and Martin get the same vehicle?

Haven't heard from Sue in a while. Hope she / they are enjoying the FL weather.

Oops! Thought he had a Cherokee - just give the manufacturer's some time and they will get it right. Others have posted elsewhere that they were "models" for Demco and Demco used their vehicle as the trial version for manufacturing.

He should have bought a Cherokee and been done with it. hee hee!

The thread you refer to is the one I was mentioning last night - and I thought another company was on board too. I did not look it up again but that's what I remembered.

Yes - I think there are differences though - like placement of adaptive cruise control that then relocates hooks - bumper shape. Not an expert but since we were looking at Jeeps have been following along. When Sue and Herb got them - I sort of stopped following figuring I would get first hand info...

Good Luck Herb--- keep us posted.

From The 2014 Jeep Thread
------
I just spoke with Blue Ox. By 1/31/14 they will officially have the following available:

Baseplate: Latitude & Limited - BX1135. Trailhawk - BX1136
Both will work with Adaptive Cruise Control.

Tail Light Wiring Kit: All models - BX8848 (available now). This is a diode kit as they found there wasn't enough space in the tail light assembly to install a separate bulb kit.

Sorry - old iPhone makes linking to irv2 threads a bit of a hassle..

Glad you are up and about, amazing what a little TV and eats (not to mention napping) will do for you when you are home.. and not being poked and prodded every 2 hours.

There seems to be a bit of optimism in there re the GC @ CL Qauck... Quack...

Fingers crossed for ya.

TEFFY - Bob - will call ya tomorrow - probably around 11. Still sleeping long and hard - and often. Much better of course but batteries are low. Recharge is slow. Can't wait to be back on Floating charge.
