Re: Surpisingly Stable Overland

Well since the regular WK2 share the same basic design as the SRT, very good performance shouldn't be a surprise. Of course, the SRT has a much better set of tires & suspension setup.

Re: Should Jeep make a "Black Edition" Grand Cherokee Overland

What Jeep SHOULD do is offer a TOTALLY COLOR MATCHED Style for ALL Trim Levels and ALL Colors.

NO Chrome with the possible exception of the exhaust. Similar to what is offered for the Durango.

Re: 2012 Limited DRL bulbs keep burning out

There is a known issue with the 2011-2013 DRLs.

They generate too much heat, causing damage to the socket, and burn out often.

This is why the design was changed for the 2014+ models.
