Re: Overland Leather

I did in post #26. What color do you have and when did you get it? It seems the bolsters were changed from leather to vinyl later in production.

Re: Overland Leather

I don't know where you read that but Jeep was advertising real wood dashes on the Overlands since the start. When you get yours I think you will see the difference (unless your like my Mother who...

Re: Overland Leather

I bought it from Jeff D'Ambrosio in Downingtown from a young guy Jason. Overall good experience but then again he really just has to take an order. He did follow up with me for several months as...

Re: Overland Leather

Back in the fall, some of the Overlands I looked at had VINYL bolsters and I think between the rear seats. This bothered me.

My 2005 Limited has vinyl bolsters and is basically vinyl everywhere...

Re: Overland vs Limited Grand Cherokee

Lift gate is fine. I push the button and by the time I am out of the car it is open. Realistically it probably takes 7 seconds to open.

Re: Overland vs Limited Grand Cherokee

Agreed. I had planned on getting the Limited until I started looking at the options. The Overland gets you a lot of extra stuff for a little more and is IMHO a better value. The leather dash and...

Re: The 730N RHR can be ordered but when is it suppose to be in production

My Overland was ordered 2/11 with Saddle and the RHR. I got a letter in the mail on Friday with a VIN so I called Jeep this morning. They said the car was "released" and on the way to dealer.

Re: Anyone out there with the new RHR 730N?

My dealer ordered my Overland 10 days ago with RHR. I called Jeep and they said it was released and on its way! I hope this is correct. With my luck something will be screwed up.

Re: Top 10 Reason's the Overland is on production HOLD!

They did a bad job of pricing the trim levels making the Overland overly attractive to many would-be Limited buyers who feel the Overland is a better value.
