Re: Overland QTII, Select Trac, & Quadra Lift confusion.

Well, I can say that if mine shows up without Quadra-Lift, I'm likely to not take delivery- I'll let the dealer take this one into inventory and I'll just wait until Jeep can tell the difference between their rear and a hole in the ground when it comes to the top of the line trim level.

Question Re: Overland QTII, Select Trac, & Quadra Lift confusion.

Is there now an increased cost for an Overland if the QuadraLift is standard?

Re: Overland QTII, Select Trac, & Quadra Lift confusion.

Quadra-lift was always to be standard but for some reason early models like the one I test drove at a dealership weeks ago... Didn't have it installed

Thats because it was always listed as a late availability feature and wasnt ready yet for early models.

Re: Overland QTII, Select Trac, & Quadra Lift confusion.

Quick question - what is the difference between Quadra-lift and Select-Terrain??

Quadra Lift is the actual raising and lowering of the Jeep while the select=terrain focuses mainly on the distribution of power among the 4 wheels{if this makes any sense}.

That sounds right to me, though I'm pretty sure the Selec-Terrain also adjusts the ride height automatically if you've got the Quadra-Lift.

Somewhat, yes. "Sport" mode automatically engages the "Aero" ride height setting (0.5" decrease from normal; it would otherwise kick in automatically at 60mph). I don't remember if selecting "rock" or "sand/mud" on the dial would engage Off Road I or Off Road II ride heights.

Re: Overland QTII, Select Trac, & Quadra Lift confusion.

[QUOTE=Technosavant;246431]QTII is not part time 4 wheel drive. It cannot be locked into 2WD mode for fuel efficiency. With Selec-Terrain, you can vary the torque split front/rear somewhat (for example, "sport" mode sends most to the rear), but it isn't completely user adjustable.

Just wanted to confirm with you saying that QTII is not part time. According to the WK2 website, it states for the QT II:
  • Operating positions: 2WD - 4WD Auto N 4WD Low.
  • 2WD = 2 wheel drive.
  • 4WD Auto = Electronically controlled wet clutch for torque biasing.
  • N = Transfer case neutral for 4-wheel flat recreational towing.
  • 4WD Low = Low range (2.72:1) part time mode.
Another thought, do you have to have it in 4WD Auto to get the torque bias of the select terrain?

I now know that QDII is full time. But the question I still have is with the QDII front axle, is traction control via brakes like QTII?

Re: Overland QTII, Select Trac, & Quadra Lift confusion.

[QUOTE=Jim Hef;246471]I have to disagree with Techno on this one. Depending upon where you live, limited slip can be a big positive, especially in icy or snow conditions.

Jim,
Not having any Jeep experience this may seem like a stupid question, but doesn't the QTII offer similar traction control in icy/snowy conditions?

What would be the main difference and feel btw QDII and the QTII on ice and snow?
