Laredo with OR2 and QL?

I accidently hijacked another thread talking about the relative rarity of the WK2 Laredo equipped with the Off Road Package 2 (OR2) and the Quadra-Lift (QL) suspension. Even though the Jeep website shows that QL is available on the Laredo, several members said that when they tried to order one the dealers all said it couldn't be had. So I was curious to see how many members here have that combination (as I do).

I bought mine off the lot here, and really didn't want the QL suspension to be honest. I keep my vehicles an average of 10-12 years, so I have visions of leaking hoses, bad sensors, and failing compressors right after the warranty expires. However, the Jeep had everything else I wanted, so I said what the heck and bought it. Is is a Laredo X (build date Nov 2010) with OR2, 5.7L, the tow package, 430N, and no sunroof (for me that was a requirement, I already have a convertible).

So how unusual are these?

Re: Laredo with OR2 and QL?

Specifically chose the Laredo X for a few reasons; one being that it had most of the Limited specs and could get many of the bells (leather, Nav, tow pack, Hemi, skid plates, etc) but avoided the QL. Just too many unknowns around that system in Jeeps.

Re: Laredo with OR2 and QL?

i voted "No, and bought a Laredo to avoid the QL", but thats not really true. I bought a Laredo and didnt want QL, but not specifically to avoid it. My last air suspension car (audi allroad) was cool, but novelty wore off quickly. Used it a few times i the snow, and thats about it. My GC will see mostly pavement, so 4x4 with low range is sufficient for me.

Re: Laredo with OR2 and QL?

Doesn't look like there are very many Laredos out there with OR2 and QL. We better take care of them, they're collectors items.

So far (one month and 1500 miles) I really like the system.

Re: Laredo with OR2 and QL?

I know this post is a year old, but I have this setup with 18" wheel delete which people don't believe. I have 17's. Link to post and pictures below. Mine was built 4/11 and bought 6/11. I've seen two on you tube but they had 18's.
