On 80 degree days my jeep 2011 grand cherokee w/ Hemi on a rod trip is running 200 - 220 (uphill or in traffic).

Does this seem to be running warm / hot?

I assumed it should run at 180-190 ish?...

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

I think some members said it has to do with a different manifold and intake on the RAM which requires a taller hood.

Re: Brakes Questions

The dealership told me my rotor thickness was fine but discourage me against just replacing pads. I think replacing the pads, fluid and bedding the pads makes the most sense now. I...

Thanks for the pics. Do you have quadralift? Did you go with 265/50/20 size? I'm very disappointed with mine coupled with quadralift and stock size. Noise increase is tolerable but the...

Re: 20" Overland Tire Choice for quadralift

Danco,

The tires were over inflated by about 2 + lbs each tire. Aired them down to 36 just this morning and it is an improvement. (I went walleye fishing yesterday morning and forgot to do it)

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

Terra Grapplers

Is anyone running 265/50/20 stock size Nitto Terra Grapplers on their Overland? How is the highway road noise? Looks like a good all season / trail / all purpose tire.

Re: More Tire Blues

DirtyDuck,

My only hesitation is the 50 profile increase to 55's at the 20" size and the speedo issues. I realize more sidewall gives it a better ride especially off road. What are your thoughts?...

Re: 275/55/20 Pics

Will the 275/55/20's work on the Overland with the air suspension? When the vehicle sits down for high speed highway mode or on tight turns will they rub or pose a problem? Speedo?
