20 percent or 50 percent...you're still turning all the hardware! Can't expect a mileage difference from this.

Understand. Thanks again for the responses.

Really enjoying the jeepgarage site as I continue to learn more with an expected purchase of an overland version in the spring of 2011.

Yeah, it is going to result in more of a handling difference than any change in fuel efficiency. Since less power goes to the front wheels, you aren't asking them to do as much, so there's likely to be a marginal improvement in handling. Probably not night and day, but enough for those who want to find a difference to notice something on the butt dyno.

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

You guys shouldn't even worry about MPG as its gonna suck no matter what.

I'm more concerned with the lack of front LSD.

For the QDII front axle, I would anticipate that not having the ELSD means the brakes are going to fake it.
According to Jeep.com QDII has ELSDs both front and rear.

More than likely last years commentary, but front was dropped for this year's vintage.
