Re: 2011 Overland ORII @ 1 month

I get what you guys are saying about NOT needing the tuner knob, so I won't dwell on my reasons too much. It's what you're used to and what you prefer...I just think it could provide many extra uses besides just tuning for the radio/sirius. For example, who likes scrolling through 300 artists 5 at a time with the ipod screen (or the extra buttons you push for A-Z)? I guess I use the knob more than most people, but that's how I do it. Sometimes it's easier to roll a knob than scroll through 15 presets. The knob could also be used for things like zooming on the nav screen, rather than tapping 5 buttons on the screen, or trying to get the voice recognition to understand what you're saying... example:
"Zoom out"...
(pause)
"Are you sure you want tp place an emergency call?"

I'm getting used to it now, but I think it could be improved upon. OK, done.
----
Anyone know how to get the rear headrests off? I needed to get a car seat tether to the back side of the seat, and ultimately had to squeeze the thing through the headrest and top of the seat. I couldn't even raise the thing half an inch to make it easier.
---
Haven't been off roading yet, definitely next summer.
---
And to answer the last question, that's my M&P .45
---
One more minor annoyance I notice A LOT is the sunroof wind flapping (whatever you call it) at exactly 38mph. Never have had it on any car I've owned, including 5 previous jeeps. Seems like they went to great lengths to NOT have any shudder noise with that huge bug catcher screen thing, so it seems odd to have it at all.

You probably do, but just to make sure, you know theres a button for scrolling your presets on the back of the steering wheel right?

Re: 2011 Overland ORII @ 1 month

Great writeup! Do you have any observations regarding interior noise level at highway speeds. Is there much road noise from the Michelin tires?
