Any concerns about the long term durability of the Overland suspension?

I plan to buy this truck and keep it for a very long time. I'd be pissed if the adjustable suspension crapped out on me after 36mos.

I wish Jeep offered the Overland w/ an option for the regular suspension.

The concern about the suspension is why I purchased an extended warranty.

I you are planning to keep it for a long time (I am), why don't you get the Lifetime Extended Warranty. That will protect you against a big ticket repair bill should something in the QL system go out.

Search the forum a bit - there was an earlier discussion about how durable QL is likely to be. IIRC, there was a fairly good argument for it being pretty durable, based on truck air suspension tech experience, etc.

In addition to the lifetime warranty check out http://www.arnottindustries.com/

By the time your WK2 comes out of the initial factory warranty I would bet these guys will have rebuilds and upgrades at a fraction of the dealer price. Just check out some of the rebuilt deals compared to factory and they do quality work.
