Nice find; looks like it must have made a killer PowerPoint lecture. As an engineer I love that kind of detail.

Interesting even to a non-engineer, but looks top secret! Someone may have to die!

I still wonder if the 20" water fording is the standard suspension or is maximum height of the QL suspension. Very cool PP though!! Great find!

According to the Trail Rated video on the Jeep site, "many Jeep vehicles can ford water up to 19 inches in depth." Vague enough? Well, my Limited will not be trying that!

I already know it can handle more than 20" of water safely. During Irene I was going through at least 3' of water with no issues in ORII mode. Of course Jeep has to set a maximum to reduce warranty claims. Even an idiot going through 10" of water can hydro lock and damage major components if they do not know what they are doing.
