Re: Early 2011 to Late 2011 Changes

I thought it was military service only, but when I went on their site and did some reading, there is an "other" category on the usaa website and it says you get all the benefits minus some checking/savings stuff and the ability to get insurance. If your non military it might be worth looking into if its true.

Re: Early 2011 to Late 2011 Changes

Seems odd that they would switch the sunroof and power shade switches with each other. I rarely close the shade, but use the sunroof several times a week, weather permitting.

Re: Early 2011 to Late 2011 Changes

Can the power sunshade be stopped in any position between fully closed and open?

Yes, I believe just hold the button and release where you want to stop.

From my early build Limited 8/10 to the new overland build date 6/11 I noticed surprisingly a lot of changes. Maybe my June build is really a 2012 in disguise
  • Hemi starter has changed (quicker starts and way different sound)
    Sun glasses holder has been lined with more foam to reduced rattles (finally)
    Sun roof and power shade controls have switched sides
    Blinker is much louder
    Tailgate beeper is much quieter
    There might be more I haven't noticed yet....I will keep everyone posted

My opinion on the RHR 730N versus the 430N. Personally I like the garmin nav better, it is much more intuitive and allows custom POI's to be loaded. I also like how the 430N has the sound equalizer set to each audio source, the 730N only allows one setting. The 430N offers blazing fast feedback to touch and is overall much quicker. However, I do like having real time traffic and travel link that you can't get on the 430N.

Also the air suspension is a much smoother ride than the regular suspension.

I am stoked with my steal of a deal, so if anyone is on the fence about a late 2011 versus a 2012, get the 2011 for the extreme savings while you still can.
What side are your sunroof controls on?

My sunroof controls are on driver's side of overhead.

It's military service, certain government agencies, or be the spouse or dependent of the same. You have to be linked to a service person to get membership.

Re: Early 2011 to Late 2011 Changes

Okay .... I logged into my USAA account and ran the numbers. A list of three vendors was populated with the listed prices. One vendor had the exact vehicle I'm looking for and was almost too easy to work with.

The Sticker price is $44,990 sale price is $38,981. So about $6000 off which I think a great price. I put money down today and will be picking the vehicle up this weekend.

Are you sure that is the newest 730N RHR? It could be the 730N RER based on the price of that option and the build date of January/Feb.

There you go...support to what some of us were saying but you've actually purchased now! Where are you from out of curiosity? It'll help others to know what zipcode you used and where you bought.

His is the RER. If I remember correctly, the RER was standard on Overlands at first and then when the RHB came out, it was standard with the RER as an option until they ran out and the RHR was ready. The RER was a $305 option and the RHR was a $465 option. His base price of $41,910 and the destination charge of $780 indicate it was a pre-May 2nd build. That's when the price increase of $385 on Overland 4X4s took affect along with the $45 increase in destination cost.
