I always tell the dealer before the car even gets to the lot. No dealer advertising and no front license plate bracket mounted.

Re: My 2011 Silver Overland with Saddle/Black interior and Hemi

The front advertising has been pulled off some weeks ago.
I had directed the dealer not to fix any, but my instructions were not followed.
I was in a rush to drive my Jeep…

My Sharkfin antenna is now installed.

I will get new pictures when Mr.Winter goes away…

Luv my WK2!

Re: My 2011 Silver Overland with Saddle/Black interior and Hemi

love the interior and the exterior color choices!

does it have the quadra-lift?

its strange that the front lip and side skirts are black, I'd ask the dealer to paint them body color as part of the deal.

Re: My 2011 Silver Overland with Saddle/Black interior and Hemi

Actual mileage : 5,000 km or +-3,000 miles

Still very happy with my purchase!
It has been a nasty winter here in Canada, and I’m very happy with my WK2 performance.
Very cold weather, snow every other day, now water accumulation everywhere on the roads since warmer weather is back… guess what? Who cares… I drive a Grand Cherokee…

NO PROBLEMS SO FAR! Nothing! Except small paint chips cause by the salt trucks…

The suspension is getting better: I guess because of warmer weather.
The sound of the Hemi is getting better!
The fuel consumption: Who cares, I did not buy a Hemi to save fuel…
Alpine sound system: Excellent!
Reception since I have added my SharkFin antenna: no difference
Blizzak performance on ice + Quadra-Drive II: HoHo! Nice! Bip Bip! Out of my way please!
Braking system: Well, I have been pushing my beast to the maximum lately and the braking system is doing the job easy.
People face expression when they see my WK2 for the first time = A big WOW!
In the weeks to come snow will melt and the sun will be back. My jeep will go in the dealer to be cleaned just like when it was new. After that, I will post new pics.

For those of you that have ordered or that will order an Overland, IT IS WORTH THE WAIT! Enjoy!

Re: My 2011 Silver Overland with Saddle/Black interior and Hemi

I'm jealous, mine has the cream leather seats with the beige dash. i sooooo wish i had waited till saddle came out. that is hot on silver, which is my fave color. awesome ride man, top notch.

Re: My 2011 Silver Overland with Saddle/Black interior and Hemi

Hi fellow Canadian,
I am from Montreal and plan to buy the same model in a month or so. I drive a Liberty today. I just have slight reservations about the hemi. I am kind of hoping it is not too much worst compared to the Liberty, which is for the performance, pretty bad on mileage (14l/100km). What's your average?

Thx and congrats. I have been nuts for the last 2 years about this new jeep. Now is the time!
