2017 Overland Off Road Adventure II Option

What effect ,if any, would the addition of the ORAII option package have to the ride quality of the Overland on a normal road or highway?

The two features that I believe could have some affect might be changing to 18" wheels from 20" and the "increased travel" of the Normal Duty Suspension.

The 18" wheels might cause a slight reduction in feeling road bumps and also slightly reduce the handling. But I am not sure how the "increased travel" would effect the ride. More body sway around corners perhaps?

The ORA2 combined with the air suspension has a very comfortable ride under most conditions with very little lean considering it's a 5200 lb. SUV. Of course, comparing the Jeep to my Vette and CTS-V, the Jeep's body sway is noticeable.

Is the "increased travel" for ORAII new for 2017? I don't recall seeing that for quadralift equipped WK2 in the past, even with ORAII.

Yes I believe it is a change they made for the MY2017
