I have a few questions about it.
I think I've read something about issues with PCM programming for the early build V6's. Mine seems to drive fine to me - is there something I should be on the look out for? Carfax did not show any reprogramming and the factory warranty is almost up.
As a casual observation, I thought it would ride smoother than it does around town. It is very smooth, just thought it would be better. Seems about the same as my old Laredos from what I remember. Do the tow package shocks ride firmer? And am I the only one who may actually prefer the 18" wheels instead of the 20's that came on the Overland? I am inclined to think it may make for a slightly smoother ride with the 18s and the 20" wheels are not my favorite. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
Congrats on the new ride.
The Overland is a beauty.
You can find a lot about the history of your truck if you take the VIN to your dealership.
Recalls,service record etc.
Can you give a little more info on your rig.
Pics ,km etc?.
There is a TSB website that info on the PCM issue you are asking about I think.
Or maybe you mean TIPM!?.
That's on the TSB Site also.
Just curious is all.
My 20s are butter smooth and they are just about finished.
