It's gonna be Shannon's replacement once they get done beating the piss out of his current order, and he rejects it upon delivery.

Lapeer is the worst track I've ever run a car down.. Slicks get really unstable at half track on the juice in 3rd. I'm thinking the big dip has a lot to do with it. Really unloads the suspension and makes you cringe! Hopefully they don't put his Jeep into the wall when that torquey lil' diesel really starts to pull in 4th.

From the satellite view it looks like it used to be an airport runway, with the parallel taxiway running along side. If it is like other old airports that nobody wanted to pay for and maintain, they just continue to deteriorate over time.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Shannon, look at it like this.... Your jeep is gonna be pre-thrashed so you don't have to worry about a breaking period... Wait... The diesel doesn't have one anyway... Hmmm. Nvm.

Not sure I am happy about this one. Paying big bucks for a Jeep that will have milage on it, and beat to crap before a proper break in period. Think I should get a huge discount on this one.
What are the thoughts from the guys in the factory - do they really beat on it?

Re: 2014 diesel production

They're not beat on. Just driven normally for further testing.

Ya, it says right on that clear 2" x 4" clear window Sticker they add that they don't take it over 60 MPH during the testing.... Maybe they are testing a particular Serial Batch of Engines?

Ummm... Just be glad Marlon isn't behind the wheel.

You all should see the way he drives! When he drives that lil Dart in, you'd think he's auditioning for the next commercial. I always laugh to myself when I see him on the freeway.. I just get over and let him go ahead and do his thing.
