Excellent outcome and a shame it has taken so long.
The very best of luck.
New one arrived on Friday and it is perfect. The 2011 Overland had front recovery hooks, and "Quadratrak" 4WD system. The new 2012 Overland has no front recovery hooks but does boast "Quadradrive 11" 4WD and electronic LSD. Having just travelled 3000km in a conventional coil sprung Laredo, the Quadralift air system definitely provides a far superior, and well controlled ride especially with the 2500kg caravan on the back.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

So the new Big Black Jeep visited the beach with not 400km on the clock. Thought id give it a go without dropping tyre pressure. #fail. 45min later after some major beach excavation and dropping tyres to 18psi we were on our way again. 18psi really the only way to go. Night and Day.

The 320km trip south to Sydney was easy. ACC is a revelation! 8.6L/100km / 27.4 mp(usa)g's for the run.

Hey Mate, mopar one, same as yours.

The logo is my company signage. Have to have it sign written to avoid "Fringe Benefit" or "Perk" tax.

Reads " RoadSpray " Hawkes Bay Limited
