Re: Air suspension vs Regular springs

There is another thread on all the differences between lux II limited and overland. I'm interested in the original questions, is the quadra lift ride better than the standard springs?

I don't care much about any of the extra stuff except maybe the air suspension. A plus for the Overland plus tech is that it would be a lot easier to find in dealer stock than a Limited the way I want it.
FWIW, you can also get the Quadralift on the Limited if you add Offroad-II. That's what I plan on doing as soon as the diesels are available for ordering. The "loaded Limited" is $3300 cheaper and has virtually no functional differences. Note though that that's with the diesel, which gets a discount on the Lux-II option. After reading through the whole "Loaded limited vs Overland" thread, I summarized what I believe the functional and aesthetic differences are in this post:

2014 fully loaded limited or overland?

Note though that I claim no special knowledge, and I'm new to Jeeps so don't take what I wrote as gospel. I just summarized the info that others had provided and what I gleaned from the features/options posts from Milous and others.

Still counting down the days until ordering opens for the diesel ...

Nobody can answer that for you, but you. Everybody likes a different feel. Test drive time!

Re: Air suspension vs Regular springs

I have QL and love it on my 2011 but there are wide spread issues with the system. Then again I would not own a Jeep that isn't under warranty especially since the lifetime plans really aren't that bad.

How many ordered or bought the overland without the advanced tech package?? Why did some of you buy it as an option if you did?

Re: Air suspension vs Regular springs

I wouldn't buy one of these and spec in luxury bits without QL. It makes a HUGE difference in ride quality.

Re: Air suspension vs Regular springs

I did not order the advanced tech package on my Overland for two reasons:
1) Did not want to become too lazy to keep aware of my surrounding;
2) Did not want to jam my V1 radar detector

Re: Air suspension vs Regular springs

It shouldn't interfere with the radar detector. Does your radar detector go crazy at the airport? They use radar too...

Police radar has specific bands (frequencies) and likely different from BOSCH electronics active cruise control radar.

If they're using laser you can forget it and the radar detector,the only thing going crazy will be you when they hand you that ticket because you got your beep from your detector but couldnt slow that 4000 pounds down quick enough.

Re: Air suspension vs Regular springs

Not to get off topic, but have been using V1s for over 20 years in all cars and have never gotten a ticket. When the Audi S5 first came out with its proximity radar, it set off the V1 big time. I recently called Valentine tech support and they confirmed that the systems are using the same radar bands as police radar.

It does. I have it listed in the contract documents as "air springs" and "compressor, air suspension". The max care is more exclusionary, meaning they list what isn't covered. I bought it a few weeks ago. I have never needed warranty work on any of my jeeps yet, but the OL is by far the most advanced of the lot.
