I took my Tahoe and my International Scout on the beach all the time and never engaged the 4X4. On sand its all about floation not traction.

Yes, I believe that is the case.

The QL equipped WK2s sit slightly lower at NRH (Normal Ride Height) than a non-QL equipped WK2.

Correct - normal ride height for an overland is just over 8 inches and the steel sprung Ltd sits at about 8.6 inches

Re: Should I get Quadra-Lift?

Although QL is cool feature and worth during life of the vehicle. I did not go for QL. Driving QL and non QL jeep back to back I found QL jeep ride is smoother over pot holes etc on normal ride setting . Before ordering my jeep I went on sand dunes on my mates limited with QL. We were going down a steep stand dune and the jeep started flashing that there is problem with QL and see service ASAP. My immediate thoughts were something like that would ruin my holiday. I want to keep maintenance cost down as I am planning to keep the jeep for next 10 years so not having QL reduced the risks. But saying that some 2011 QL jeeps that have already done over 100,000km with no QL problems. With or without QL wk2 GC is a awesome car.

Re: Should I get Quadra-Lift?

IF I had to live in NYC and IF I had to have a vehicle it would be as stripped down as possible. Nice vehicles get trashed there very quickly.

Unhappy Re: Should I get Quadra-Lift?

So, i have an QL equipped Overland and recently I have had problems. The QL wouldn't engage. I brought the vehicle in and after 5 days, the dealer cried uncle and said they couldn't find the leak. They flew in a specialist tech. They asked for him on a Monday, expected him on Wednesday, and he arrived on Friday (10 days after i brought my car in). He looked at it for a few hrs and then left. Apparently they have limited resources as my dealership has tried to get him back to no avail. Apparently he isn't even returning their calls. Its now been 17 straight days. Amazingly, rather than trying to put more of an effort into fixing the car, my case is now in the hands of the "buy back" department. After 5,800 or so miles, it looks like i am going the lemon law route...Again, this amazes me, I love the Wk2, amazing bang for the buck compared to the LR4...but they seem to have given up on my vehicle. We will see, and while I appreciate that I might be an outlier, I can't recommend the QL...especially as two of my friends have wk2 limiteds, without QL (and the ELSD and motorized rear hatch that also failed on me within the first 500 miles) and they have had absolutely no problems.

If anyone has any experience on having their car bought back from Chrysler, please share.

Pls don't look at this as trolling. I might even get a new wk2 after I get my refund, but I really haven't had the sort of honeymoon period you would expect after dropping @45k on car before its first scheduled maintenance period.

Oh, and in terms of real world use, for the most part, i think the QL is excellent. Lowering the vehicle on the highway is great, and OR1 is very stable and helpful. OR2, IMHO is a bit of a disappointment. Yes, it does increase your height a bit, which sometimes can be huge, but the ride is so harsh, and the shocks top out so frequently (and yes, i am crawling), its almost unusable, even in the very limited situations I engaged it.

Re: Should I get Quadra-Lift?

Without Quadra-Lift, it is okay to run over the potholes, patch roads, etc etc?

Is this a serious question?

Re: Should I get Quadra-Lift?

Get it. Baller style! It's easy to fix too after your warranty is up.

I just swapped air bags and a compressor in my buddies 2007 RR sport.

Re: Should I get Quadra-Lift?

QL is amazing. I've only used it once on a VERY bad dirt road, but it's sweet and fun. My neighbor had it last year during a bad snow storm and he needed every bit of the lift extension. My Subaru and Outlander chassis were in the snow while he could drive.

Now....could a regular GC have handled that snow? Possibly. But not as well. It's just a bit more capability, just like the Hemi.
