Please Help with new order

Howdy,

I need help with 1st order for a 2015 GC Overland Diesel
1. Would you go with a 4x4 or 4x2 ? (i'm not much of an off-road-er but may be handy in some cases
2. Which optional equipment should I add (to Overland), ?
3. Lastly, if you had a chance to order any additional equipment, what would it be ?

Thank you very much for the help

Roman

The price difference between a 4x4 and 4x2 is negligible at best - something $700 or less. Adding AWD to a all-ready potent package is just icing on the cake. It makes the car that much more sure-footed whenever the weather turns for the worse.

Re: Please Help with new order

I understand that there are several ways to configure the 4X4
What equipment should I get with it ?

Re: Please Help with new order

Have you "built" your vehicle at Jeep.com. That way you get to compare the options and prices so you can decide what YOU want. It really doesn't matter what the rest of us want, unless you are going to loan us the Jeep.

Of course, with the Overland you already have most everything.

Re: Please Help with new order

The QuadrDrive II adds an electronically controlled locking rear. Probably not too big a deal for on road use.

The Off Road package basically does 2 things on the Overland. It adds skid plates and swaps the 20" wheels for 18's.

I had an Overland with the ORII package for beach use. I intend on getting a Summit with no available skid plates and 20's, so I see no need for ORII for on road.

Re: Please Help with new order

If you aren't going off road then I wouldn't bother with either of those options. The standard quadratracII system will still handle moderate off road conditions anyway. Sand, dirt, snow.....

Re: Please Help with new order

I concur-if you have zero intention of off-road, the standard Quadra-trac is more than adequate.

Wait you started off asking if 4x2 vs 4x4 was worth it and now asking if Quadra Drive and Off Road Adventure is?

Based on your first post, it would be totally overkill.

However, some people do get the Off Road Adventure in order to get the 18" wheels. Some folks prefer them for looks or really do go off road which they are better for, or for more options on tires.

I wouldn't think of buying this without the Advanced Tech Package.

Agree, the Advanced Tech Group is a must !

Would you get any additional Warranty ?
I plan to lease it for 3 to 4 years ?
