Thumbs up 2011 gc overland

I have had this beauty for about a year now and I have to say, I have not had one thing go wrong with it! Sweet ride, 5.7 HEMI for the power, loaded with options for any desired mood and in addition, I have added the Chrome in quite a few places like the Door pillars, Side Bars, Fog bezels and added a few Non-Factory installed nameplates including the throwback "V8" tag from the sixties...
A great Truck that rides like a dream, oh and yes it has been in the snow , rain and on the Beach with no problems at all... LOVE IT!

Re: 2011 gc overland

Although im not really a fan of the extra chrome as I think the Overland already comes with plenty of it, I will say you have a beautiful Overland. It makes me feel really good about my decision to buy a new Overland that you have not had one issue with it.
Hows your saddle interior holding up?

Enjoy!

James

Re: 2011 gc overland

I also think the Overland has plenty of chrome as it come from the factory. Does NY State require all those stickers on the front windshield? Also, maybe its the lighting, but those NY license plates have a horrible color to them. Who picked that color?
Other than that, your GC looks fine.

Re: 2011 gc overland

The saddle interior holds up real good, although I don't work in a job where I would wear dirty clothes day after day, I do run a crane in construction, but usually change before going home. BUT, not afraid to have fun with it and it cleans up pretty good...
I have seen quite a few of these loaded trucks and have asked and looked up reports on them and it seems they have a winner here for sure. It is reassuring that we have finally got back to making good cars and trucks again...

Re: 2011 gc overland

The color was picked by a former governor who did not get elected to the office. They are supposed to be retro to plates from the 1950's, but the color is not even close. Not too many residents are pleased by them. Bottom 2 stickers are NYS registration and NYS inspection.

Cool Re: 2011 gc overland

Yep, the plate colors suck, (and they charged an arm and a leg to convert to it from the old white ones), and the stickers are: Registration (White), Inspection (Red), and Beach access pass (White square).
