QL Normal Ride Height vs Non-QL

I've seen conflicting information about this. Is Normal Ride Height in a QL equipped the same as a non-QL jeep assuming everything else identical? I've seen information saying one was higher than the other.

Re: QL Normal Ride Height vs Non-QL

Before buying my '14 I looked all over the place. At that time even various spec sources from Jeep were conflicted. The biggest difference I found was 1/2". So I bought my Overland with QL and forgot about ... until you had to mention it.

I will be checking back to see if anybody comes up with a definitive answer ... just out of curiosity.

I've seen them vary a bit. It can also be adjusted a bit by the dealer if necessary.

Re: QL Normal Ride Height vs Non-QL

The OP asked about normal ride height, not offroad mode height.

I don't know the answer for sure, but since QL at highway speed drops 1/2" into aero mode, if you do a lot of highway driving I think the QL would be lower than the non-QL in practical use.

I wonder if even Jeep knows for sure? They seem confused. For example, on their website when you look at the QL info, it says OR2 goes to 10.8". But when you click on the "watch it in action" video, that says it goes to 11.3".

Are you trying to say that the answer should be related to the question?

Great, I'll never get an answer to this one.

Re: QL Normal Ride Height vs Non-QL

Take a tape measure to a dealer and check the real world result.

That's not a bad idea, although I would have to have the QL one in normal drive mode. Does anyone know where on the jeep the measurement should be taken from?

Re: QL Normal Ride Height vs Non-QL

I suppose you could pick any spot on the body to the ground and figure the differences. Any other ideas on this? I actually think there's a thread somewhere on the forum from last year with diagrams.
