Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Quadra lift questions:

1) Is there an issue with the Quadra-Lift on the Overland model. It seems most members Overlands are sitting in Quality Control/Storage/Inspection for an extra long time not shipping, while Lardeos are shipping?

2.) Are any Overlands being built to this day without Quadra-Lift even though its a standard option?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

My question concerns my 08 SRT Jeep. Fantastic vehicle. The best I have ever owned. Working for Chrysler, I have owned many fine vehicles.

1- What is the temp that the "high trans temp" warning comes on.

2- What is the direction of flow from the trans to the stock trans cooler? Upper hose in the cooler and lower hose out?

Many thanks and I can't wait for news of the 2012 SRT Jeep!!!!!

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Wow... pure luck i copied my questions.


---Quadra Lift questions----
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)?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Greetings!

Previous model Grand Cherokees were prone to what many consider to be premature component failure on items such as blend doors, lock actuators, differential howling (WJ's), and starter motors, transmission cooler lines (WK's) etc. In engineering components for the WK2, was consideration given to "stepping up" the long term durability of parts that were known to be problem areas on previous models? Thanks in advance for your time, and response.

Dave

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

1. Could you explain which one is better and why in 430N and 730N navigation systems?

2. It looks like the 730N will be changing to Garmin in 2011...if I purchase the 730N now, will that be software-upgradeable in 2011?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Been mentioned a few times, Has the thought of the weight, increasing through the generations ever caused a red flag in point where its getting too heavy and less efficient as it could be?

Also why does the ram hemi have more power?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Hello Phil,

First of all, I would like to say congratulations to you and your team. I think you guys have hit one out of the park with the 2011 Grand Cherokee! I participated at a Destination Grand Event and had the opportunity to drive the vehicle and put it through it’s paces. My wife and I were sold on it almost instantly. As an owner of a ZJ and WJ I am looking forward to adding a WK2 shortly to the stable of my Jeeps.

I am curious as to what you would say was the most challenging engineering aspect of the new Grand? (What kept your team working late at nights?)
