Perhaps that was the one my wife drove around their lot. It had been sold while we were getting ready to drive it, so we couldn't take it on the road. Neat interior, tho -- my only concern is maintaining the airbag suspension, which Milious points out is now mandatory with the new Overlands.

It's also tough to get rid of my 08 Laredo with the 305HP 4.7L. They only made the new 4.7L for the 08 (and maybe 09) models and its a sweet engine. That and the 08s came with lifetime powertrain warranty. I can beat this thing into the ground and then some.
There's a guy in Wycombe who's a GC freak (has two or three). Long shot, but if you're selling, post here and I'll check with him. We already have a drooling buyer (someone else) in the township for our old buggy when we finally make the Big Move. My wife thinks her GC is a living, breathing creature and insists it goes to a good home (sigh).

Re: WK2 Testdrive/Ordering Experience

Thanks, but I'll be keeping my WJ as a backup vehicle. Just went through the blend door fix, so I have more money in repairs than the thing is worth!

Re: WK2 Testdrive/Ordering Experience

Well, the confusion continues... I've been wanting to order a 5.7L Laredo X package with off road adventure group two (i.e quadra lift). After confirming OR2 availability with jeep's 800 customer service line, I went to a dealer last week to order. it's not available and they can't get a straight story from their company contacts either. I'm wondering if i just need to wait a few more days for this to clear up (it's been several days with the dealer "calling jeep" to get an OR2 status daily) or if it's just going to be available on the Overland and I need to suck it up and pay the extra couple thousand

Re: WK2 Testdrive/Ordering Experience

All this "delaying" makes me worry. If this was the "most tested Jeep ever" prior to release, then why the delays?

Re: WK2 Testdrive/Ordering Experience

OR2 was an available option for the Overland as you mentioned, when I ordered mine three days ago, not sure if that means it is or is not available for the X now too...

Re: WK2 Testdrive/Ordering Experience

my salesman says it was ORII was 'restricted' for the Laredo and Limited, but was available for the Overland.. so I'm guessing it may be a supply issue

Re: WK2 Testdrive/Ordering Experience

Ah, the trials and tribulations of a new model entering production.

These issues are to be expected. Hopefully, they're resolved quickly, and correctly at the factory, and we'll get our GC's with no issues or complaints.
