QD2 vs QT2 for my intended uses

I'm most likely picking up a 2012 5.7 Ltd this Thursday, the 08 is going back.

If you want the full story >>> http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/b.../#post12845958

Anyhow my 01 has QD, the one I plan on purchasing has QT2.

My uses will include,
  • typical commuting all weather conditions 'Connecticut'
  • light off road use: streams, sand, gravel
  • towing a trailer 2,000lbs - 6,000lbs (depending on # of bikes)
  • towing+ extended periods of time.

The 08 I purchased is QT2, I was under assumption it's the newer version but I was wrong when there's actually the QD2.

Should I opt for the QD2 seeing as how I know tried and true it does everything I need it too or is QT2 fine. Plus the way Jeep's site explains it, QT2 it's technically RWD until the event it needs to kick in. I'm not comfortable with that. I would be much happier with piece of mind its "All time All wheel drive".

If I am wrong PLEASE correct me!

Thanks in advance guys!

QuadraTrac II operates at a 48/52 split under normal conditions. All wheel drive, all the time.

This and the new qd2 only has a limited slip diff in the rear diff now. The advantage over qt2 may be marginal on the 2011 and 2012's.

If you're buying a 2012 you are asking the wrong guys - wrong thread at least.
I would stop over at the WK2 forums and ask around. (2011 and up Grand Cherokee's).
FWIW - QDII > QTII > QTI

Thanks guys I appreciate the information. If they have QD2 I'm going with that if all I can get my hands on is QT2 under my situation, then I have no choice. Smfh Thanks again for the info. Sorry if this was the wrong thread. Site is slow as hell on my BB.
