QL and ORA opinions needed
So.. I ordered a 3.0L Grand with quadralift last weekend (have to wait to august to get it :-( ) and the more I think about it the more I think I shouldnt have got the QL because of the various issues that others seem to be having. The other dilema I have is that I feel like I should have got the offroad adventure pack but im not sure.
So basically Im after some advide, if its not too late, should I:
cancel the QL and opt for the ORA;
cancel the QL and not bother with ORA;
keep the QL and get the ORA; or
stick with what ive ordered..

QL was about 2200 and the dealer recons 1500 for ORA.

Re: QL and ORA opinions needed
if you want to do extreme offroad the wheel travel is limited in the highest setting
as when you hit the bump stops its a bit disconcerting with the lound noise
so if thats the case you woulfd better installing a 50mm lift. i
i have it mainly for towing a camper trailer so i dont have to have airbags on rear
and pump up. i think some people are having problems with the extra load shockies not the quadra lift. iam happy with it. you are alway better off with underbody protection.

Re: QL and ORA opinions needed
My opinion is stay the course. I've done 6,000 kms and have had no problems with QL. I am very happy with it. It's a much nicer ride and orh1 is a good height for what we need on Fraser Is.

Re ORA, As you are getting a Laredo you are getting 18" wheels and as you are getting the diesel you get the stronger 220mm axels. What you don't get is underbody protection and ELSD. You can add underbody protection for $650 or so. Do you need the limited slip diff?

Re: QL and ORA opinions needed
well thats basically what I need to decide. this will be my first 4wd and while Im keen to get out there and get into it the thick of it i am considerable inexperienced at serious 4wd-ing so I doubt i would need ELSD anytime soon. so far im leaning towards ORA more so for the underbody protection but who knows what the future holds!
Im thinking I might just wear the extra $1500 and get the ORA package. Is that a typical price for it?
