Re: Limited vs Overland

There will be problems with the air suspension. In time everything wears out. It just depends on how long you plan to keep the Jeep and if you need extended warranty. Normally consumer grade air suspensions will develop cracks and create slow leaks in the bags by 50-60K miles. Some might make it to 80K miles + but it is enviable that they will need replacing. It'll be about $2-3K per axle to replace and refill the system from the dealers.

Personally I still think the benefits of air suspensions still out way the cost of ownership.

When I bought my overland summit I made sure the lifetime warranty covered all the air suspension components before I purchased.

The answer is Yes. The lifetime warranty does in fact cover the air suspension. Its being offered at a very attractive price also through chryslerwarrantys.com . I will be getting my lifetime there in the next few months.

Re: Limited vs Overland

The Overland is an awesome trim model. However I specifically tried to stay away from the quadralift so I dumped the idea of a 4 wheel drive option so I wouldn't get it. My neighbor had Land Rover with it and it was in the shop more than he drove it.

I read up on forums with other cars with quadralift (X5, Land Rover, etc. ) and it looks like they all have the same problems the JGC has. Its been around for several years now and it looks like they still haven't quite figured it out by now. I'd stay away.

Re: Limited vs Overland

Land rovers have plenty of quality issues. A few JGCs had leak issues and combined with the dealers fumbling around exaggerated the problem. Once resolved the QL has been proven reliable. Very few have an issue. Now, how they hold up in six or seven years, who knows. The air suspension in my 20 year old RV still works just fine.

Especially since I do a lot of cross dessert runs in the middle of Summer. I also was not a fan of the panormic roof or the leather dash. I know, I am odd ball that likes the standard sun roof. Something about that cloth cover on the pano seemed cheap. I also preffered the all leather stearing wheel in the Limited. I do believe that the spring suspension has a more "connected" feel to the road but that might just be all in my head. Another thing to consider in either case is the 20" don't do well off-road. So, between the pano roof and interior I finally decided on the Limited and have been happy with my decision. A lift kit and I'll really be happy.

BTW, for your shopping comparison, mine is a 2012 Limited 4X4, HEMI, LUX, 730, 20", Tow (everything minus ACC) $39,850 +TTL.

I know you'll be happy either way.
Funny I feel the same way about the regular sun roof, besides less area to leak. With it being a new option, you never know down the road.

I too found the all leather steering more to my personal feel. In a matter of weeks I will be ordering Hemi Limited with the ORA II. As a 2005 Hemi WK owner I prefer the Quadra Drive II to the Quadra Trac II which comes standard on the Grand Cherokees including the Overland. You cannot however, order the 20's with the ORA II package.

Re: Limited vs Overland

I bought the limited with lux 2, 20's, and 730n. Basically an overland without QL. I too preferred the leather wheel over the fugly wood one. Only thing I like better o overland is the cross hatch type grille over the vertical strips on the limited. I really want to get the summit grille but wifey doesn't like that one..
