And in that vein - any chance I can get you to prognosticate on when my vehicle might start the production process? I'm guessing based on some of your other posts, and watching what's going on with others, that it might/hopefully would be in the next day or two ...
It appears that it may start late this week and possibly finish into the weekend.

I have not seen those but very clearly part of the internal training materials. Looks a lot like the tech training I had seen, and shares some of the same screens and notes.

As for the Engine torque, I think that is English semantics. 420 is 100% more power than 210. 210 is only 50% less than 420... They just need to relearn how to spoke gooder.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Looking through the Build Status thread...there are very few original day(s) orders (early August) remaining to be built. Since we are probably a small percentage of the CRDs actually built I am going to have to guess the end is finally near.

I have to agree, and a big part of that (at least for the Premium Members) is rounding out this week... You (CNY) may actually see your VOTS email today, if not probably early tomorrow!

That's what I'm talking about

EDIT!!: Checked VOTS and it shows TRIM. Which probably means it is (I) by now

Does that include those who went to D1 on the 7th or will we likely see our builds next week?

Awesome, thanks for the update! I was secretly hoping it would be a day or two earlier since the train to this area seems to leave thurs/fri, though that point is moot if the CRDs don't start moving in the next day or two. I suppose it's also possible the train schedule will be different initially as they try to clear out all the stacked-up CRDs.

Anyway, thanks again for the info.

There were a couple of "big blocks" of EcoDiesel build.... I will take a peak a little later and see if I can comment on the date grouping.

Called Jeep Customer Service today, they said my estimated ship date is 10/1, "but that could change". Yeah, right. When I asked why mine and all the other CRDs built have just been sitting there, she said she didn't know but that mine had been selected for a "quality control inspection audit'. Just super. The good news is that every day that passes we are getting closer... :-)

I checked a number of builds that were processed as D1 on Sept 7.... Almost all of those look to be starting production before the week is out.

-As with any of these predictions, there can be a number of changes, but it looks like this is a big build week for JeepGarage Premium Members
