Re: BFG Rugged Terrain T/A 275/55R20

Tires did really well last weekend. Towed my toy-hauler out to the desert with a full load and the Jeep tracked well and rode great the entire way. Did well in the sand and hooked up much better...

Re: Towing thread

My set-up. Using a weight-distributing hitch and Tekonsha brake controller. Just about at the towing limit, but works very well. I just keep a close eye on the transmission temps. Hit some fog in...

Re: BFG Rugged Terrain T/A 275/55R20

Thanks! I really like them so far. They are quiet and handle well - very little difference from the Goodyears. I don't notice any degredation in acceleration or braking performance. In fact, it...

Re: BFG Rugged Terrain T/A 275/55R20

Nope. Not concerned one bit. It's not that much of a difference. Plus, the tires are never spinning at the same rate anyway everytime you go around a corner. That's what differentials are for. I...

BFG Rugged Terrain T/A 275/55R20

Just got them installed on '11 Overland with QL and stock 20s. Seem to fit fine. Not loud and drive nicely at 38 psi.

Re: Weight Disctributing Hitch

I use a weight-distributing hitch to tow my Fleetwood Evolution E3 with good results. Tongue weight is around 850 lbs with the motorcycles loaded on the front deck of the trailer. I know this is...

Re: Oil change panel on Hemi

I just did my first oil change too and notice the same thing. Nope, no cover on my Hemi Overland.

Re: Front Air Dam Removal

Just did this last night in conjunction with the tow hook install. It is not as easy as it could/should be. There are two small bolts holding the air dam to the fender liners that need to be...

Re: Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

I just hooked up my Tekonsha on Friday using the harness in the glovebox. I mounted it under the steering column. Unbelievably easy and the Jeep tows like a monster!

Re: Underwhelmed by HEMI

I've been pretty pleased with my Hemi, but I was expecting more of a kick in the butt when you mash the throttle. Instead it is refined and somewhat subdued. The power is still there though. My...

Re: Want to CRY with me?

Try Amato's in Sorrento Valley. But you may have a wait there too.

Re: New WK2 lift

Even better are the lifts with the longer sensor links AND spacers so the air springs are still at the stock height. I really can't be that hard to set up the same thing for the QL. I'll look into...

Re: For those of you with quadra-lift...

Saddle and QL were both "must-haves" for me. You can guess what I ended up with. But I do off-road quite a bit and will be adding skids, tow hooks and sliders shortly.

Re: FEELER OEM Tow Hooks/Slush Mats Group Buy

Too funny! I ordered by slush mats and tow hooks (along with full skids) the day before I picked up my Overland last week. Oh well.

Re: Overland Special Order Questions

I had to poke around a bit to find a dealer that would deal with me, and then had to drive 100 miles to sign a purchase agreement for a car they don't even have. But I knew what I wanted and they...

Re: Overland Special Order Questions

Well, I lucked out and found a special order Overland in Mineral Gray with Saddle. The buyer backed out and I stepped in. I wanted the Offroad Adventure Group II, but I can easily add the skid...

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

Just sold my built 2008 Rubicon Unlimited to make room for a Mineral Gray Overland with Saddle. Hemi, of course. I need it to tow, which the Rubicon can't do very well. This will be my fourth...

Re: Overland with and w/o Offroad Adventure Package II

Good idea! What are the pros and cons of the 18" vs. 20" wheels? I suppose more sidewall is better for offroad and the lower profile tire is better on the road. Anything else?

Re: Overland with and w/o Offroad Adventure Package II

Thanks guys! I really appreciate the input. I don't think I can pass on the Trail Rated badges. . . .

Seriously, though, it sounds like the rims are the biggest issue. Probably worth waiting...

Hello. New guy here. About to pull the trigger on an Overland, but it does not have the Offroad Adventure Package II, which I want. Since the Overland comes with everything already, what am I...
