Re: '14 Overland with no Trail Rated badging

My '12 has OR1 package, the badge is on the sheet, but I didn't get a badge either.

Was gonna bug the dealer about it but never did - decided I like the clean look better.

Last time I was at the dealer for an oil change, the desk advisor noticed I had a rear tow hook when he went to check mileage. He got all excited for some odd reason and was asking me if I installed it myself. Forget exactly how the conversation went, but it quickly became apparent that he didn't even think a rear hook was available from the factory and he thought I installed an aftermarket. He said my WK2 must be one of the very few they've sold that has an OR package. (I did a factory order.)

Re: '14 Overland with no Trail Rated badging

I don't want the badge, but isn't the normal Overland trail rated... or is it just mall parking lot rated? What makes the trail rated designation? I am guessing that package with the 18 inch wheels and skid plates, but seems weird that they tout the Jeep GC offroad ability and they aren't all trail rated.

Marketing. Basically the skid plates.

With the Hemi or CRD it also adds QuadraDrive II.

Re: '14 Overland with no Trail Rated badging

Ah, that makes sense then. Worst mine will see is a gravel road. I had a Wrangler Unlimited Sahara and it saw pavement its entire life... sad really.

Re: '14 Overland with no Trail Rated badging

Not a chance... unless i keep in on the inside. I want to de-badge the jeep (once I can find a how to as I have never done it before), not add things to it. THats funny that you can buy them though... thanks.

Save the money that skid plates would cost and just buy the fender badge.

Yup. They are plastic anyway. Besides, you can order the Quadra Drive for the CRD or V8 as a cheaper separate option.

Re: '14 Overland with no Trail Rated badging

I went with ORAII on our ordered Overland. We will seldom, if ever, do any serious off-roading; however, it is nice to know that should an emergency situation arise, we can escape off road through the mountains. Once a Boy Scout, always prepared.
