Have any of you gys noticed rust on your cv axles and driveshaft? Is this normal? It must have happened during transit. We haven't had snow here since I got it and it was never test driven...

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

I don't think that is it. I only hear it under load in high gears. Where are you taking the video at?

Re: Black wood steering wheel

Re: Black wood steering wheel

Great - Now give me your steering wheel, :D

I'm pretty sure my 2014 overland had black stitching as well. It seems the ones I have seen used though all have the white stitching.

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

Are you getting bad gas mileage too? Compared to my 2014 overland V6, the v6 on my HA feels weak and is getting bad gas mileage and pinging to boot.

Re: Black wood steering wheel

It might. I'm not sure. I would probably order the wheel first and see. Google the part #. I found it for as low as $320. You can see all the various parts in the picture.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Maybe a wood steering wheel once the sting of spending the money wears off. Getting spacers to push the wheels out a bit would help beef up the look.
