Anybody have a 2007 Overland CRD 2WD?
 
My mom has WK fever ever since I got mine, so I have been keeping my eyes open around town. I saw this silver 07' with 26K for $24,900, so I had to get a closer look. Turned out to be an CRD Overland with an interior that I'm very jealous of. I saw the QDII badge, but no Trail Rated badge or low range shifter. Took it for a test drive and looked under the skirt once I got away from the dealer and no 4WD components. I'm guessing that the wooden center console piece was replaced with one that has the QDII designation, but it was cracked as well. I ran it back by the dealer and he said it had something to to with all four corners being coil springs. I own a QDII Limited... I know what it means. We really prefer 4WD around these parts, so I lost all interest. But the CRD was fun to drive and I really want those suede center seats. Too Bad:(

I wasn't aware they did the diesel with only 2WD?

I remember seeing somebody on here asking if he should SRT8-out his CRD 2WD, but I don't think it was an Overland... Mindboggling.

strange setup, but the suede seats are great

I just picked up a 2007 2wd limited crd. I found this thread while seeing what it would take to make it 4wd. I am pretty handy and plan to keep my eye out for the parts. I will keep you posted if a good deal and execute...

I too have a 2007 CRD 2wd Limited (not a QDII) and will eventually SRT it out

There was one on the cummins forum very recently that was a 2wd QDII

I know this is an old thread, but I'll add my 2WD CRD details for future reference.

I bought a 2008.5 2WD WK Laredo new from a dealership in North Carolina in 2009. Mine was one of two remaining new CRDs when I bought it. The other one was a 2WD Overland in Alabama. I now have over 100,000 miles on it and is still going strong.

I've only been stuck in snow twice in five winters in northern Maryland. I think I would have been stuck in those particular situations (12"+ of snow on the road) even if I had 4WD. I think the 2WD handles a little better, gets better mileage, and has a slightly higher towing capacity than the 4WD. Traction control is sufficient in milder climates like here. I'd definitely want 4WD if I lived any further north.
