2011 Overland Pros/Cons
 
Looking at a 2011 Overland in the next few days and was wondering what past/current owners think? I currently drive 2001 Limited with 220k miles. Love it, but time for something else. Thank you.

There is a buying a used WK2 sticky thread to read through https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309...d-wk2-4376453/

We went from a 2000 WJ to the WK2 and the WK2 is much better in every way.

The Overland will have more bells and whistles than a WJ or base Laredo, really nice features but then expensive to fix.

I just bought a 2012 Overland about 5 weeks ago or so. I absolutely love it. It sucked up a couple of hundred bucks right off the start, but I now have full confidence in it (99.5K miles) and have been using a lot. I got it as a winter beater/grandkids hauler/utility vehicle and find myself really liking it more than I expected.
I would never recommend buying an older high mile car unless you have the time and money to handle it needing something major on it, but I have no concerns with mine now.

Ive had mine from new, best Jeep I have had ever, done 200,000 kilometers, did do a head gasket, (my fault, left off radiator cap), so did heads myself, real easy to work on, great engine (Hemi 5.7 V8), was prepared to drop in a 6.4, if I needed to. It is heavily modified, spare set of 18 over sized rims and tires for off road, exhaust by pass cut outs, self made removable roof rails, will hold 180 kilograms. Engine mounted air compressor. GO FOR IT.

BTW, just noticed the "Back Off" mud flaps on your Avatar pic. I had those on my 1981 Dodge Van back in the late 1980s!

I love my 2011 Overland.

keep in mind the Overland has air suspension. Can be very costly to fix. Read up on it and some of the experiences others have had.
