2.) Are any Overlands being built to this day without Quadra-Lift even though its a standard option?
1. We launched QL in late July as a late availability. We also combined additional features and colors for Overland model. This resulted in some delay of shipment. Now being launched

2.Yes, we launched without for first two months.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

To the Jeep Engineers:

Are there any plans to add direct injection to the pentastar V6 or dual exhaust (more aesthetically pleasing)?

Also are there any plans in the future to reduce size/weight of the Grand Cherokee. My favorite size was the ZJ as it was light and nimble (though the steering was sloppy).

I love the Grand CHerokees and owned 5 until my last one, 2006 WK overland, which was so problematic I traded in for a BMW 3 series. I hope to return to the WK2 once the reliability has been proven. Which i'm sure it will.

One more thing are there any plans to add Headlight washers, power folding mirrors (for tight New England garages and streets), and a front ELSD?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Again, hats off to the Jeep crew whose hard work brings us fun.

As for the WK2, are there technical hurdles that prevent offering Quadra-Drive II with the V6 Pentastar?

Thanks.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Question from abby -

"Could someone ask about the 3.6L Pentastar and whether they are , in fact, shipping E85 versions? Mine is not, apparently, no yellow cap or badging. Literature from Jeep refers to E85 compatible but that has now disappeared in the glossy catalog and one reply I received on the phone from Jeep said it was "CARB STATE" restricted. I live in MD and this is a "Carb State" complying with California's emissions rules."

Primarily asking referencing from experience with current WK..

1- When lowered or lifted, how does the steering alignment (toe) not get out of whack?

2- Does the front knuckle hit the strut at the full lift point (as happens on lifted WKs)

3- With these in mind, and the fact that Quadra lift exists, will lifting a Laredo WK2 with an aftermarket kit basically create no foreseen ill effects?

4- Does the ESP have a special calibration for when Quadralift is activated (or in other words will a lift on a Laredo not freak it out)?

It does modify slightly but within specs.

Packaged to not hit strut

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Welcome,

Regarding the MP3023 TC can you run in sport for extnded periods and is it using a continuos duty bearing for the clutch actuator now? it didn't on GM trucks and when left in auto they crapped out the bearing.

Thanks,
JH

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

question from maxst2

"Why move the battery under the seat - being what looks like a bigger truck and with that one would think the engine compartment should have room for one since all other GC's are in the front... and why, while the numbers look good for it being a long lasting battery, is it replaced with a battery that is high dollar? ALSO would it be OK to replace it with say a traditional type of battery in an emergency, as I doubt wal-mart or auto parts store will have something like that in stock."
