He was pointing at my post (depending on which direction you sort your threads). Read my note, he is aware of my conversations.

I understand, yes I knew he was pointing to you. I figured since he was pointing out the production note you mentioned that there would be an end to our wait. Do you also work for Chrysler group, or just have an inside track?

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Inside Track would be a good description... I do not work for Chrysler.

Yes, so have I; drove one in Moab and followed directly behind it on a trail run on Kane Creek a few years ago (I could barely tell that it was a diesel). It was way nicer on the highway than was my '97 ZJ brand new; ergonomics for me were excellent; it had plenty of pickup from a stop and made the trail run without any issues. Hoping the new one will be very similar, except I probably won't be taking on trails like Kane Creek - AZ pinstriping is guaranteed! That's why I'm keeping the ZJ.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

I drive significant off-road for work & fun (gravel, dirt, trail, fields, washed out roads, low creek crossings). I won't be doing crazy major off-roading (like MOAB) here because we don't have terrain like that.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Sounds like the diesel is the perfect vehicle for you, 4jeep. Will you be ordering yours as soon as the order banks open?

Willx: Can you elaborate your inside track connection any further?

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

I'm going to wait and see if they hint at any special editions. I would LOVE the trailhawk II. The suspension is the one I want, larger tires, blood orange color, performance suede seats. I drive close to 30,000 miles per year so the diesel would pay off for me. I'd more get it for the fun of the drive than to save $$.

I've almost gotten stuck with my 2010 GC climbing steep gravel/dirt roads. The diesel with better gearing would be great!

Not really, All I can say is that I got an email from someone stating that my order "would get scheduled" that individual has authority to say so and it was in reference to my Diesel Summit which is now in MOTS.....

Milous has the rest of the info and will release once confirmed.

I think I better go change my shorts.
I will believe the order date when I get a call from my dealer telling me to come in. They know how anxious I have been for this vehicle!
I just got the following from Millous
Hello,

Your Jeep was released by the plant a couple hours ago... ETA to dealer is 7/29, although that could change (day or two earlier is *possible*).

That does sound awesome, I hope they do have special editions. Have they announced any yet with a diesel? You will most likely have to wait until next year sometime before you order then.
What is your job, that requires so much off-roading?
