My Dad picked one up, his is an 07 Overland CRD 4x4. Very nice driving ride, feels slightly heavier on the road than my 2wd, the only thing i didn't like about it is when you get off the throttle it almost feels like you throw the anchor out vs the 2wd.

Yep I definitely know what you are talking about the bit of drag-like feel when you coast on our QDII diesel. I've grown used to it now and actually don't mind it at all anymore. Does your 2wd feel significantly faster than the 4x4?

I'm still getting used to that with mine.

Sightly faster, you can definatly feel the difference in weight and driveline drag between the two. Here in a few month i will be able to drive them back to back with the tune in mine.

I also have the K&N filter and MBRP exhaust on mine. May make a slight difference.
