Do you park raised or lowered?

Obviously a QL question. I like it raised so I can use my side steps, but lowered is nice when putting my kid in the car seat in the rear center. Both look cool, so I change it up.

What's everyone doing?

Mostly raises but I lower when I have my kids or wife with me.

Re: Do you park raised or lowered?

I dont have my Overland yet but I would imagine when I do get it I will probably be using the "park" mode pretty often. I think these things look soo good when lowered a little bit. :-)

Re: Do you park raised or lowered?

If I'm solo whatever height I'm driving at. If my girlfriend is being good park mode & if she is being difficult I park in Off Road II.

Re: Do you park raised or lowered?

Having owned four previous Grand Cherokees, I frequently forget to lower when parking. My wife and pregnant daughter appreciate it when I do but a lot of times they have opened the door before I hit the lower button and that's if I remember. I'm learning to hit the button when turning into the driveway so we are at park height when we stop.

Re: Do you park raised or lowered?

I would like to use Park Mode more but I always forget to set it before shutting down. I think you should have the option of having it go to Park Mode automatically when you shift into park and have the engine shut down only after it finishes lowering.

LMAO!!

For me it will depend on whether it's dirty or not. At its usual height it gets the back of my leg at times on egress. So when she's dirty, park mode (similar to your g'friend rule).

I agree with Curly... it should be an opion in the EVAC system.

Agree on the evic option. Maybe a new version of lockpick will do that. ;-)

Re: Do you park raised or lowered?

I lower it every time I park. Once I'm below 25 km/hr, I activate the park mode. I also have to do it at a covered parking lot I sometime use due to the antenae height.

Re: Do you park raised or lowered?

If i am out running around getting in and out I generally leave it up. If I am parking for a longer period I lower it. Also I always lower it when I have passengers in the car.
