The stereo is phenomenal in the Overland. So clean even when streaming.

Wonder if the RA4 system sends out a cleaner signal to the amp?

Did you get the optional CD player in the center console and if so does it play DVDS?

Yes it does have a CD player. I put a CD/DVD in and it played only the audio. I'll try a regular DVD and see what it does. The front LED markers amd LED signals look great, even the "puddle lamps" are nice and bright. I don't understand why they didn't finish off the tails.

They were to cheap to make the rears full LED light the fronts.

Anyway, keep the info coming.

Re: I think I might go pick up a 2014 Overland tonight...

I think the rear seats recline more now.. lol just an observation. I'm coming from a loaded 11 X V6 and this is just way more polished in every aspect. Maybe its the QL that has me smiling when cruising around now. The transmission is PERFECT..

Re: I think I might go pick up a 2014 Overland tonight...

Well good thing Vleds.com produced the single best aftermarket LED units I have seen to date. If the V3 triton's fit into the tail lamps of the new Jeeps then there is a perfect solution for Chrysler's lacking on the new Jeep tail lights. Atleast they look fancy with the LED lit perimeter, but the fact that they dont have LED signaling or brake lights is just weird.

Sorry to sort of hijack this thread, but I figure since we are on the subject I can introduce these to you guys here. I have them installed on my 08 Acura TL-S and they are incredible! Forget all those cheap "tower" LED's that have like 92 LED's mounted all over the place that work horribly.

Here are a couple pictures I took.



Here is a comparison shot of the original incandescant turn signal bulb compared to the V3 triton LED. The output is insane! Im sure you can tell which side is which ;-)

Thanks for the led info jt. Anyone finally confirm if the backup lights were led? I know Scott asked at the show but I didn't see his answer for the backup lights.

How is the space in the backseat? The review posted by TFLcars said it was tight in the backseat. This has me a little concerned since my son is 6'2" and he just keeps growing. We test drove the '13 and we thought the backseat was adequate. Is the '14 any less spacious? Are the guys at TFLcars just nitpicking?

Thanks for the great info, pics and vids. I'm glad someone willing to share was the first to take delivery.

Re: I think I might go pick up a 2014 Overland tonight...

If you have the front seats all the way back, I doubt your son would be comfortable in the back of any vehicle. The reviewers always seem to leave the front seat position out of their comments.
