2016 Overland High Altitude Question

I've been test driving 2016 Overland HA's and the driving (and even just looking at them parked side by side) impression I'm getting is that at overland with QL in normal ride height seems sit a little higher than my 2014 limited. Is that the case or is it just my imagination. I tried to find specs on normal ride height for both to compare with no luck. Is an Overland heavier than a limited with the same engine? I also was reading a rather long thread about the HA's when they first came out. There was a question as to whether the QL suspension on the HA was the same used on the regular Overland or a sportier tuning. Any information on that regarding MY2016? I guess my question is whether the Overland HA has a stiffer ride than the regular Overland. I really appreciate the info that I get here. It's amazing how little anyone at the dealers know about their products!
Thanks

Re: 2016 Overland High Altitude Question

I hate it when I have to reply to myself Did I post this in the wrong forum? Questions too dumb? I wouldn't mind doing the research myself if I someone could point me towards good sources of information.
Thanks,
Steve

Re: 2016 Overland High Altitude Question

As far as I know, the height is generally the same at "normal" height. There could be slight variations between vehicles for any number of reasons, but I don't believe the specification is any different.
