Removing wheels with QL

I just picked up our new Overland and want to detail it.

Wish to pull the wheels, and put on jack stands.

Any preferred position to park it before pulling the wheels?


Should I put it as low as possible, some other position?

I assume you cant damage it as long as you use the 4 jack points.

Re: Removing wheels with QL

Look in the uConnect Suspension settings for the tire jacking mode. it will prevent QL from self adjusting when the engine is off

Re: Removing wheels with QL

I find detailing in park mode (with the wheels on) the best position for detailing so you can reach the roof. As for pulling the wheels, off road 1 height works best for jacking it up at least for my needs. Depends on the height of your jack stands. Be sure to put it in the position you want, and then disable the quadra lift system (by holding the up and down buttons at the same time for several seconds), before jacking. You may know this already but wanted to be thorough.

Re: Removing wheels with QL

Just figured it out, settings and screens are intuitive and back arrows helps with the menus.

Tire jack mode!

Also tossed a CD into the player and man that wakes up the sound.


Just talking to my neighbor who has a beamer for a year and a half and say the infotainment and settings and controls are a disaster on her X1.


So I guess I can take the tires off, just scotchgaurded the carpets and threw my lund catch all floor matts in.

Oh I was really romping on it to seat the rings on the back roads and have 80 miles and avg 16.5 mpg, not too shabby considering I did a couple dozen 3/4 throttle pulls up to about 80 mph

Will dump the oil tomorrow and change the filter.

Re: Removing wheels with QL

Here is a link mototune

Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power

Basically after engine is up to temp, some 3/4 throttle acceleration and deceleration will help seat the rings better and you have the first 25-50 miles to do this. My friend who is a tech has broken in every engine he has ever built with this method and I have done this on the 3 other new cars I have bought new and they were all nice and tight with no oil consumption.

I was on the back roads with the wife and got on it a dozen times doing some 30- 80 mph pulls. My friend did the prep and I told him on the test drive, he oblidged

If your read the owners manual in a left handed way it is telling you to do this. Of course for liability reasons they dont exactly spell out the procedure.
Also in the plants I have toured, when they pop them on the chasis dyno at the end, they get them warmed up and romp on em good.

I have 88 miles on it and dumped the oil and changed the filter.


From page 106 of owners manual

A long break-in period is not required for the engine and
drivetrain (transmission and axle) in your vehicle.
Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km).
After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or
55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the
limits of local traffic laws contributes to a good break-in.
Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be detrimental
and should be avoided.

Yes, I bought it there and his son Eric did the sale, they all know me, I live around the corner from the store. I know all the techs, service manager, parts manager. They are a old school family dealership as you know, I visit a couple techs in the shop all the time, interesting to see what they are working on.
They also give me a discount on parts, let me dump my pit oil in their tanks, they use the waste oil to heat the shop.

I have 10 cars and this is the first one I bought there, havent bought a new one since my WJ in 02. They are low pressure, give you a fair deal and the service dept is great. I do 90% of my own work but anything I dont have tools for or need alignments, hunter tire balancing they have all the equipment. Also if I have questions or need info my pals in there help me out.

You'll find a lot of different recommendations on break-in. Some say to break them in just like you'll be driving it.

I've noticed decent mileage with spirited driving in both the Hemi's I've owned.
