Re: Finally did it! Picking up my new Overland monday. Quick question.

Man, that sucks! I found the exact WK2 I wanted at my local dealership, but they put front plate holders on ALL of their vehicles so they can put on a dealership advertisement plate (not sure why...

Re: 1st oil change on 2012 wk2 ????

I follow the manufacturer's schedule. Who do you think has more to lose, us or the folks selling these vehicles? The dealer is going to tell you 3K miles, and it may appear to be "free" but they're...

Re: Bluetooth Audio WITHOUT Phone

You may want to take your Jeep to the dealer for this. My bluetooth works great at any speed!

Re: Weather Warnings on Travelink

I had the same thing happen this weekend. The alert pops up on top of the radio display, also. My nav wasn't running, either.

Re: Quality control FAIL

Hmmm... aren't a lot of us having issues with our Nav systems dumping home addresses and such?... I would guess an errant 12V or missing ground could cause problems with all kinds of things.

Re: Touch Screen Icon

Do they look like cars? There is an icon that depicts cars in the top right, and it indicates traffic info for the nav system.

Re: Parkview Camera (reverse camera) Alignment

Nice! How did the camera housing cover come off? I'm guessing it's clipped in, but can you let me know hwo you got it off? That's exactly what I was considering doing, but I didn't have the...

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

I was cussing out Jeep for the hour it took to get mine off. Mine was on there for several weeks in the sun on the dealers' lot, so I had the same issue. A rag, goo gone, and a plastic scraper and...

Re: Fuel door release button doesn't work

I assume you tried the manual door release? That is a mechanical linkage, with no electronics. If you've tried that and it didn't work (p. 433 in the owner's manual) I'd let the dealer look at it... ...

Re: Display's dim before its dark out with rain sensing wipers activated

Check out page 145 of your owner's manual. The headlights come on automatically when the wipers activate, but that is selectable in the EVIC menu. You can turn that feature off if you want.

Re: New Year not starting so well!

That sucks, man! I've been there, though. For the dent, I'd take it to a body shop and let them get it done. I've done the "at-home repairs" in the past and ended up looking at an "OK" repair for a...

You can deactivate it in the main menu. Just click the "sirius traffic" button on the display and then select the "sirius traffic setup" menu. At the top left of that display there is a sirius...

Re: Portable Air Compressor

On mopar.com if you look up OEM parts (parts diagrams) for the 2011 GC and go to wheels/jack stowage it lists a compressor for $109. It's under the OEM parts so at one time it must have been...

Re: Just noticed LED light bar on German Brochure

Yeah, it's a hitch. I spent 5 years stationed in Italy (tough gig) and that's pretty much all you see over there.

Re: Little paint on wheels. Better look

Looks awesome! I'm considering doing the same thing on mine (18" polished) but going with black on the inside of the spokes. I love having ORAII, but the 18" wheels are too bland for the truck.

Re: First Off-Road Experience With WK2 4WD Hemi

Thanks to all for the help. The Wrangler definitely has a more in-tune feel to the steering and throttle response compared to the WK2. The WK2 handled great, but the feedback feels "filtered." For...

First Off-Road Experience With WK2 4WD Hemi

So I finally took my Jeep off-road and tested out the selec-terrain system. I've had 3 Wranglers so this is my first "automatic" transfer case. So I found some loose sand and tried out the "sand/mud"...

Re: $305 Credit for 430N replacing 730N?

I see from your signature line that you have an Overland Summit. It comes with the 730N as standard, I believe. The 430N is less expensive, and they must have ordered it like that. The 430N is a...
