When you look at an Overland make sure that the PO hasn't sold the rock rails or leather out of it. I love the QD in my overland and love the HO when towing. The HO will require premium fuel so that's something to think about too.

Ya'll are forgetting the most important Overland feature. The wood steering wheel. Nothing feels quite right after driving one with it.

Is 180,000 a lot of miles for a 4.7 ho? Found a overland last night that looks great just a couple small issues. They wanted 6k and talked them down to 5,200

Sounds expensive but maybe it has gold plated rims or something.

That sounds a bit much for that many miles

I'd say it depends on the year and your location. An 04 Overland with 100K goes for $10K+ around here so $5,200 with 180K doesn't sound so bad if it's an 04. If it's older it might be a little high. I've noticed there is a good jump in price for any model of the 04 over the other years too.

I got my 04 Over for 9000 with bad ball joints and 98,000 miles. So far it's doing great. Changed the oil to synthetic and did all the fluids the first 3 weeks I owned it. I think I got lucky

6-9k seems to be the going rate for them up here in Minnesota for a 2004. I'm just worried about the reliability of the 4.7 at that many miles. I've looked at quite a few that have had a knock in the upper end or exhaust manifold leaked.. Ive been told their a hit or miss. This one seems pretty solid yet!

$5200 is a steal, I picked up one at a auction yesterday and spend $4885 on it. Its a 03 Overland with 151k on it. They go for $8-$9 around here depending on miles and what all they have done with that many miles. Its the Limited and Laredo that are going dirt cheap. Got 18.5 out of it on the way home yesterday with it too. Its a fully loaded $39,150 new Jeep 10 years ago. So just make sure it's been taken care of and you'll be happy either way cuz you'll always wanna add stuff to it weather or not you get a Overland or Limited.

Fwiw, my limited is v8, upcountry, and quadradrive. No H.O. didn't bother me because I didn't want to run premium. I did like the seats in the overland, but couldn't find the right one.

Just in case you didn't know the HO does not REQUIRE premium fuel but it is recommended.

Require? Your mistaken. The HO does not REQUIRE premium fuel, it is recommended but definitely not a requirement.
