I think this jeep was rush into production because of the economic crisis that just took place,and also the financial crisis that Chrysler had.
That is why features like elsd,and U Connect guardian - Automatic Crash Notification, Emergency Call, Remote Door Unlock and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance, might appear in 2012 model line up.

Re: Off Road Adventure Group II Availability?

I think most people are waiting for the 8 speed and the ELSD.

I hope the gearing in the off road packages is lower than the standard gearing.
Even with the Hemi the WK2 is a pooch.

Re: Off Road Adventure Group II Availability?

Nope, choose an OffRoad package, and you get taller diff gearing, which I also think is strange. The axle goes from the standard 3.47 to 3.09, at least with the Hemi, and I'd prefer to keep the stock for torque application.

Does anyone know if the Quadra-Lift is available for the Laredo X yet?

Is it even being released on the standard model? They are having enough trouble just getting it on the overland model..

Re: Off Road Adventure Group II Availability?

I really don't understand why they would put taller gears in an off road package.
That doesn't make sense. I would hate to be even more disappointed in the lack of hemi grunt.

Spoke to a salesman on the East Coast today who assured me that the Adventure II is available on all models now not just the Overland. I am going tomorrow to see for myself. I will keep everyone posted.

Yes, I agree. That's why at this point I won't be ordering the OffRoad group. I'll just get the Hemi and QDII, and forget the other stuff. I'm more prone to the 18" wheels, but can just spend the difference every 50k or so for the tires. It was really the heavy duty cooling that I liked, but perhaps that could be an single option? Besides, you'll also save the weight of the skid plates.
