Rear ELSD is standard with QuadraDrive. The Jeep site seems to indicate that the Summit 4x4 (Hemi or EcoDiesel) no longer has QD available for MY15 but it's optional on the Overland 4x4. If that's true, it's probably because Summit is not marketed toward the off-road crowd.

It's interesting that the QD is listed as "available" for Summit and not as "standard" on the site. Fortunately I have QD II listed in the optional section of my build sheet.

Go to equipment listing under "your vehicle" and type in your VIN there Jeep - Contact Us

You can download the build sheet for your vehicle which will list all the equipment including the optional ones.

Ahhh, you should move down here to Oz. We get the Laredo in Diesel and without that uric acid additive thing you guys have to do!! It is $5k dearer than the petrol.

I went with the Laredo CRD because I 4WD, rather spend the "extra" cash on making it off road ready ie. bullbar, underbody protection, all terrain tyres etc. Still great value, love my Laredo, it is truly a beast!

QDII is not listed as standard because it's only available with the hemi or diesel.

Why is that, BTW? Does it need more torque than the 3.6 provides?

For as long as QD has been around, I believe it was only available early on with the 4.0L I6 and those are very rare. After a year or two they changed it to only be available with the V8 and now the diesel.

I find that to be kind of funny... my 3.6L V6 has about 50 more HP than the 4.7L V8 in my 02 GC. But the 4.7L had 295 ft-lbs of torque compared to the 3.6L's 262 ft-lbs, so that may be the issue. Or it could also be related to the different transmissions being used between the gas V6 and the diesel / V8.

QDII is not the same today as it was on my 02. The 02 had Vari-Lok front and rear axles that used gerotor pumps along with one in the transfer case. It could send 100% engine power to any of the 4 wheels. That was the best 4WD system I've ever had, and I've had plenty over the years.
