The Overland

I scooped this up today, saw it last night in a random search after talking to Lopez about the old WK. Replacing the convertible has been on our list for a while, just not a high priority. I could not pass this one up though, 2008 Overland, 5.7 Hemi, 63k, one owner from Boulder, non-smoker, traded it in for a new CRV. This thing is as about as close to mint as you could get for a normal use used vehicle. My one complaint about the S Limited was the two tone cream and black interior. I specifically wanted the black/brown interior so that constrained the search to 2008-2009 Overlands. Near to mid term plans are daily driver status. Longterm is going to be something similar to what we had before but with hopefully a mid travel suspension setup and 35's instead of 37s. This is all WAY down the road though. We will make that move when it makes sense to have another toy.

Re: The Overland

For sure, here are some seat wear or lack thereof close ups.

Re: The Overland

I do plan to dechrome it a bit. I will replace the door handles, grille, luggage rack and rear hatch trim. However, I will retain the door molding, window molding, and the bumper pieces. My last one was pretty much monochrome and I think it was too much. Last rig was Inferno Red and this one is Red Rock. I already snatched up a few handles from Ebay since they can be difficult to find. The grille can still be had new from Jeep. The rear hatch trim will be a challenge too as it has the rear camera built in, so I will need one with that feature.

Re: The Overland

Very nice!
Been kicking around the idea of replacing my XJ with one.

Re: The Overland

First broken part. HVAC started making a terrible grinding noise when turned on. The usual culprit is the gear that controls the recirc flap. The gear has a void in the middle and they like to fatigue and snap over time. The revised part is solid, no void. Turns out that wasn't it though. It was the actuator motor that move the gear. I saw an internal gear was missing a few teeth after I pulled it apart. Fun space to work in. I ended up reclining the seat all the way, laying on my back with my shoulders stuffed into the floorboard. Back together and running for $65 though, I swapped in the revised gear as well since I had it apart.

Just had this same issue with my wife's Impala.

Re: The Overland

I was glad it was that motor. Every other motor in the HVAC system requires pulling the dash.
