Jeez Mate, your tint, scratches and carpet can be fixed easily but a big bang sounds terminal.. Good luck and keep us all posted. Are you in a petrol or diesel?

WoW !
Not off to a good start are you?
Hopefully, all will be rectified rapidly. I sure hope the dealer is looking after you. If not, get onto Jeep's Facebook site, and raise hell.

No. It is certainly not normal to have a shudder in the rear.

There was a TSB in Feb about turbo seal leaks, but this is the first I'd heard of a detached turbo.
