Re: Window Tint and the Law

Re: Hard driver's seat

Well I love the seats on my 2015 Overland.

I don't feel they are too hard at all. I'm 6'1" @ 220 lbs. and that might have something to do with it.

Re: Are 2015 Grand Cherokee's Electronically Speed Limited?

And yes, that is due to the Speed Limiter. If modified, the top speed of the HEMI is somewhere north of 140 MPH (or... so I've been told :rolleyes:).

Re: 5.7 Supercharger 0-60

One huge advantage a Summit or Overland with a super charger has over the SRT is actual Off Road ability, thanks in part to the Quadra-Lift air suspension system.

So in theory, you'd have the...

Re: V8s- Which gas do you use?

You should double check that. The 5.7 HEMI manual recommends 89 octane. Some folks seem to have received the SRT manual by mistake, which is where the confusion comes from.

Re: Why are the Altitude's so popular?

Sorry but the Altitude is no Overland. ;)

If it was, I'd surely own one of those instead of my Overland. I do like most of the appearance features on the Altitude.

Re: unusual drag 2011 5.7l overland

Sadly I noticed this with my 2012 V8 Overland and also with the vehicle it replaced, a 2015 V8 Overland.
