This isn't the typical experience for other EcoDiesel owners, though.

I haven't had the two recalls performed or the latest transmission flash, because I don't have any major problems and I don't want to risk making things worse.

Protip: find a dealer with a good service department. My purchase dealer repeatedly made me wait 2 weeks to go in for those quickly applied firmware patches. My current service dealer does this service same or next day.

I suspect that this DEF issue is going to have to come to a head, and I almost wonder if putting the protection plate on makes one ineligible for the "actual" warrantied fix once that comes around.
I doubt that will be an issue. Even if it turns out to be so, just take off the plate before you go in. That is, presuming Chrysler's "actual" fix is better than Dom's DEF skid plate.

Given their current approach of using "Trail Rated" zip ties, I'm not holding my breath.

In previous class-action settlements (and make no mistake, this DEF injector issue is absolutely actionable), car companies offer a fix AND/OR reimbursement in full for your costs in fixing the issue before the settlement. No matter what they decide to do, get the plate now and save your receipt...
