Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

Overland gives you the most options, nicest interior, and the best value, and I recommend the Hemi V8.

Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

Another Overland with Hemi vote here.

My 2011 Overland has 25K miles in 13 months with zero problems. The QL systems is used multiple times daily as it lowers the vehicle height at highway speed. Never had a problem from summer heat to sub-zero winter travel.

Good luck,
Skip

Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

I would get a Limited V8 with Lux II, 730N, Tow IV, and 20 inch rims and that gives just about all the luxury as an Overland without the worry of the QL. IMHO the QL doesnt offer that much in terms or ride, comfort, capability, or effiency and the possible problems and cost associated with those problems far outweighs the benefit. Some may say get a Lifetime warranty which is well and good but for that to work Jeep must actually acknowledge a problem unlike the ongoing shudder, lurching, transmission, and navigational radio probloems that Jeep now says are "normal" for some.

Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

It depends on what you're looking for. Luxury wasn't a priority for us in the Jeep purchase which is why we went with the Laredo X. If luxury is a priority, I think the interior trim upgrades alone on the Overland are worth the $1,000 extra if thats all the difference really boils down to.

I don't blame you for being worried about the QL. Being stranded wouldn't be my concern, it would be being hit with a huge repair bill when the truck was 6 or 7 years old...assuming you're planning to keep it that long...buying an extended warranty just drives that price difference between the Limited and Overland up too...

I would get a extended warranty with ether with Oland or Limited if buying and keeping for more than 3 yrs.

Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

i bought a limited, so im partial.... I went with the limited because i didn't want to get the quadralift. i was concerned about having issues. Although, i know alot of people on here have it and have not had any issues.

i would say go with the limited with the 20" wheels....
i also have the luxury group, tow pkg, 730N, and adaptive cruise

ps- i love the power liftgate and the heated steering wheel!!

Some people are fans of extended warranties, and some aren't. Lets put it this way, if they did not make money on the sale of extended warranties (meaning they make more money selling them then they pay out in claims) then they wouldn't sell extended warranties.

I think overall you'll come out ahead if you don't buy the extended warranty.

Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

+1

And I know that a major factor is that I do all of my own work - it gives me a good excuse to buy some nice tools...

i really *love* using the QL to lower to JGC to entry/exit height though. so much easier for me and my 11 year old dog to get in and out. i've only had it a few weeks so i haven't had need to try OR1 or OR2.

and i didn't test drive any non-overlands, but doesn't QL with the air suspension give it a nicer ride? all i know is that it feel like i'm driving on a nice fluffy cloud each and every time i hit the road.

Re: Please advise Limited or Overland

We have a '12 Overland w/ the HEMI and ORA 2 package and we love it. Could someone explain to me the hesitance in the Quadra Lift?? Air suspension has been used for decades in commercial vehicles and ohter construction applications and is a durable, reliable, and infinately more rigid than stock spring/strut and shock suspension. I will say that it depends on the compressor not failing but there are systems that last millions of miles without fail or extensive service. There are very few mentions of problems with QL on this forum and those seem to have been remedied very quickly as trouble shooting these systems is simple also.

Re-charged four times
Module replacement
All of the lines replaced
New strut on driver's side
And TWO new compressors put in
Numerous discussions with the mechanics and STAR

Along with:

The rear driver's side half shaft replaced
A leak between the transfer case and the tranny
A couple of other trips I don't remember the reasons (I could look them up but too depressed to dig through the file)

The dealership has been good but apparently Chrysler has given up on sending out a specialist as they have a huge territory to cover. I was told that the engineers are so overloaded they can't keep up with whatever issues there are existant on others. It seems they will be giving up on mine with no new ideas. I can't believe it can't be fixed!

What a shame. We loved this Jeep but there is no way I would chance another one after taking a beating on this one. I was never able to successfully use Off Road II on a trip. It crapped out on me every time. In fact, I have some rock rails I'll be selling because the QL never worked long enough for me to trust the system to install them. I hope the rest of you have better luck with yours.

Not all are
remedied.
