Will probably be joining your ranks with an 02 to 04 Overland soon! Couple questions

Hi guys! I am going to be getting an 02 to 04 Overland within the next month or two. I currently have a Cadillac CTS which my GF will be driving from now on.

I decided I want an Overland because of the upgraded suspension and 4.7 HO. It will be used primarily as my winter/snow vehicle and as a bug out vehicle for the apocalypse! I am kidding about that for the most part! It will see very little if any off road use. I plan on getting a BB and roof rack, BFG AT KOs, maybe a brush guard and or hitch rack! Who knows! HAHA!

I had a 97 ZJ with a 4.0 before my CTS and absolutely loved it! It had BFG AT KOs and a BB. That thing was practically unstoppable! I used to off road it quite a bit.


I am leery of the quadratrac instead of the selectrac but itís a sacrifice I have decided to make to have the bigger engine.

I am aware of the blower door issue. Anything else I should look for? Any certain features I should look for or avoid?

I found a 2002 Overland with 75k miles for 10750 in my area, which seems pretty reasonable. I would offer 9750. Thoughts?


Thanks guys!

PS- I am pretty active on forums. Have been a pretty well known member of Cadillac forums since 04 or 05.

Why all the upgrades if it isn't going to ever be off-road? Quadra-Trac is fine, especially since you won't be doing anything special (i.e. rock crawling) with it.

I have an 04 overland, the HO def puts out more power than the standard 4.7
The quadratrac is pretty solid, iv taken it offroad twice and i was keeping up with TJ's that had 8 inch lifts and super swampers.
I might be selling it soon. let me know if your interested.
