Still doesn't matter try to find one and if you do it's from the old manufacturer which probably means it's no good. That's why there back ordered. They had to get a new manufacturer.

Re: Qudra lift air suspension...?

My 2011 was a Limited optioned up like an Overland with ORAII on it so it came with QL. It was one of the first ones built in 10/10. Had no issues with the QL through 117K miles. Traded it last week for a new Summit, also with QL.

QL suspension rides a little better than coil. I had a coil suspension Overland as a loaner once and was curious to compare. It's not a big difference, but back to back you can tell that QL is just a little better.

I just tried this. It switched to aero mode at ~50 mph in Snow mode. So, maybe yours doesn't, but I'm guessing most QL's do switch to aero regardless of drive mode.

Many things to go wrong with this system and they will all eventually fail with or without a warranty leaving you stranded. For me never again, it is a failure waiting to happen and the newer ones are also having problems go ask your service manager...

A quadra lift failure does not leave you stranded on the side of the road somewhere, a bouncy rough ride yes but not stranded not on the 2014-2015 anyway. There is guy on here that mistakenly cut the nitrogen lines on his 2014 depressurizing the system and he drove it around until he got it fixed, rough ride and you want to get it fixed as soon as you can but it gets you were you are going until you do get it fixed. definitely an expensive system that is good to have a service contract on.

How difficult is it to retrofit a standard suspension once QL fails after the service contract/warranty expiration?

Re: Qudra lift air suspension...?

I think you can disable aero mode and know you can disable entry exit.
I was thinking of setting it to minimal use to minimize failures.
But if it's not regularly used that may break it too.
So I even enabled extry/exit which makes it easier on the seat bolster that usally shows wear soonest.

I think it always auto levels too.

Good question i have no idea. I heard someone one here say the shocks were $1700 each on the QL add a $2350 nitrogen compressor and there are big bucks in that system, that among other expensive gadgets is why i got the lifetime maxcare. the truck will be dead and buried before i pay for a QL issue. Used to be you bought extended servive contracts cause you were more concerned with powertrain. Now its the multitude of all these expensive other systems that worries me more. I never bought a service contrsct on a vehicle before but on this one that lifetime maxcare was to hard to pass up if you keep the jeep a long time like im planning

Incredibly expensive and labor intensive, most likely. Probably considerably less expensive to just invest in the Mopar MaxCare Lifetime extended service contract, especially at the $2200-2400 cost you can purchase it for.

"Lifetime" (which a misnomer anyway) is not available... hence the question.

At these prices a retrofit with standard would seem attractive. Especially if, years down the road, one might scavenge basic components from a junk yard.

I'm fairly certain this cannot be done unless you never drive at highway speeds.

That is my understanding too. Hell, it does it even parked in the garage with the Jeep off.

Erm, how is it not available?



To the OP:
Congrats on your purchase! I drive a 2014 QL and love it, but I hear you about worrying and being all OCD about it. In the end, it is better to love what you drive.

Shoot us some picks of your ride when you get it. Also, I'm curious about your Overland deal, so if you'd like to PM I wouldn't mind hearing about it
