For my decision-making, this is what sealed the deal. I was looking at a different configuration, but the invoice on the Overland was only $350 more than the Limited. If it really was "thousands more" then I probably would have gone with the Limited. It wasn't, so now I have an Overland on order.
So apparently I was severely mistaken. There is about a $2200-$2800 difference in invoice price between a loaded Limited and a similarly-equipped Overland. I just placed my order this week so I'm considering switching it to the Limited. $2800 is a lot of money to pay for the relatively minor differences, at least for me.

I apologize for my misinformed posts on this subject. If I could edit them I would have.

That is great! I'd love to see that order sheet. Must be "something" missing I think. If you got a special deal, well, that doesn't count, I believe we are talking invoice/MSRP here.

When I was pricing, I was around $1,500 difference and went with the Overland. I think the interior is more "elegant" if you will. Plus, the fascia appeals to me more (chrome hooks, etc).

When it is all said and done, I hope everyone buys what they are happy with (at their price point). I will never buy a vehicle I am "so so" about again. Waste of money. I am so happy with my Overland, V6 standard - no frills. Makes me smile every time I put my hand inside the handle.

I also sat in a Lim Lux II, I liked that also, but the Overland was like a Siren.

$2800 over 3 yrs works out to be about $20 per week. Id pay that knowing it will be worth about $5k more than the limited when its time to trade in.

Wanna bet? $100 says you won't get $5K more for an Overland, especially on a trade-in. Do a KBB or Edmunds dealer trade-in price calculation on a used 2011 or 2012 Limited and Overland, similarly-equipped.

I'm planning on keeping the car 7+ years (God willing) so trade in isn't important to me. Getting exactly what I want is important, but $2700 would pay for most of the mods I plan on doing. I am leaning towards sticking with the Overland anyway. OTOH if my wife finds out that I could have saved $2700 but didn't because of seat piping, puddle lamps, and a leather dash, there will be hell to pay.

Yes sir, I meant a $2700 difference in dealer invoice prices, not final purchase prices. Group Buy price differences would be even more pronounced.

Yup. This is the first car I'm buying that I will be factory-ordering. Tired of being pushed into whatever the dealer happens to have on the lot.

Thanks.
Zero issues with mine after 50k miles, but the only off road I do are gravel roads. I dial mine to sport mode frequently for the twisty roads, which drops the vehicle 1/2", and it handles better.

When I pick up my Dad (he's 84) I drop it to its lowest setting and he can get in and out a lot easier.

When I change the oil I raise it to its highest setting and don't need to jack it up. I haven't tried to set jack stands under the raise truck then "lower" the suspension to do a tire rotation but I might try that next time...

The best part is the interior. Mine's Saddle-Black. Once I saw it I didn't care what it costs. I'm always getting compliments.

Re: I'm open minded.

The Overland gives you 20" wheels and chrome tow hooks. Also, you can't get 20" wheels and air suspension on a Limited. So you're really getting 20" wheels too and if you "could" add that and "chrome tow hooks or black tow hooks" both to a Limited that's another $1800 so the Overland really is the best choice if you want all of the best possible options and then basically the same price as a truly loaded (although not even possible to build) Limited; (not including Summit or SRT stuff). Plus Overland lower fascia is smooth and painted to match which isn't available on the Limited and hundreds of dollars to add to a Limited with a body shop / paint shop. Overland also has the nicer looking honeycomb grille inserts! And the Overland name and badge is cool and unique too!
