Yea I think they worded it poorly. When they say do not operate under load, I think they meant "heavy load" as in, don't tow, or go WOT while the engine is cold.

Since idling can result in the engine cooling down to far, I am guessing idling is not the best way to warm the engine.

Once you set the adaptive cruise control won't that vary the throttle automatically, assuming the car in front of you is not got cruise control on? If you live where it isn't flat even without adaptive cruise control your throttle will vary all the time.
I think there are conditions where it will be necessary to vary the throttle, at least slightly, and some conditions that lend well to constant throttle. If this is a restriction during an initial break in period, fine that's simple enough. My concern is if this is supposed to be a restriction for the life of the vehicle.

Well I went with both lol. I got the Husky's in the front 2 rows and the Weathertech cargo mat. For me it's the perfect combo.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Some seem to think that getting the ORAII with 20" alloys and passenger tyres is a good idea. Can't anybody see the irony in this?

I see very little irony in it. I'm perturbed that Jeep won't offer them.

Jeep sends us an ORA2 with 18" passenger tires calling them AT's.....ultimately just as compromised and incapable as the 20's. I would prefer 20's with a slightly oversized sand tire like the Nitro Terra Grapplers. The pooched sidewall would protect the rim as much as the stock tire on 18's IMO.

I don't see rocky soil much in my area. The risk of curbs chewing on my rims is a far bigger concern.

For me, the JGC is more of a grocery getter with good off road abilities. I will be driving it for business mostly, with muddy construction areas being my typical off road use. I have another truck for heavy duty off roading.

Re: 2014 diesel production

It's like a teapot... Stop watching for a minute and it boils! D1 status! Woot!

Of course, delivery on the 19th of September makes perfect sense since I leave on my four day bike trip that day.

Well, at least you have MOTS and you will know when it is arriving before your dealer does. Keep an eye on that water, JNAP seems to get them out the door pretty quick and arrives often before promise times.

We will just need to see how long the inital inspections take?

Re: 2014 diesel production

The supplemental manual has oil recommendations in two places.

1) We recommend you use ACEA C3 5W-30 engine oil meeting Chrysler material
standard MS-11106 or Penzoil Ultra Euro L full sythetic 5W-30 motor oil

2) Only use SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Low Ash engine oil such
as MOPAR, Pennzoil® or Shell Helix® which is recommended
for all operating temperatures. This engine oil
improves low temperature starting and vehicle fuel
economy.

Are these really the only oils I can use?

I went ahead and ordered a couple of cases of this Amazon.com: Pennzoil 550023013-6PK Ultra 5W-30 European Full Synthetic Motor Oil - 1 Quart (Pack of 6): Automotive just to have some on hand.

Re: 2014 diesel production

As an owner of a VW TDI, getting the right oil for a clean diesel state side can be a real beach. Thanks for linking to this one, it's VW spec 507 approved!
