Re: 2014 diesel production

Just looked at the build thread, looks like 90% of the vehicles that went to Taylor Auto Auction Yard were also SRTs. Not sure if that matters.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Looks like mine is just sitting in the yard waiting to be shipped? I don't think my 10/2 delivery date will be met, but hopefully ships sometime this week or next. I also called Chrysler customer service to check status to make sure they didn't say my vehicle has been chosen for extra quality control. They basically said it is done, and waiting to be shipped. All depending on rail schedule.

Also, on my build sheet, it lists "front license plate bracket bracket". Is this installed at the factory or dealer installed? I specifically told my dealer that I did not want this. Or do they send the bracket to dealer for installation?

My guess is they are finding out the engine is twisting the frame some.

Any idea which model vehicle the diesel is slated to go in?

Now that sure came out of left field!

Edit: This thread chronicles a very long wait for the CRD and we are now in the 11th hour and 57 minutes. There is A LOT of anticipation and angst at this point! My apologies if your just now arriving here.

He is a first time poster. Let's give him a break. However I recommend you go back and read the posts over the past several months to get caught up with the rest of us. Welcome to the forum.

Re: 2014 diesel production

If it was tweaking frames, pretty sure the Aussies and EU folks that have had theirs now for a few months would have noticed.

Ha or a couple of years ago considering it hasn't changed much.

Anyway, we will try not to scare away the new guy in a couple of days when he gets to the end of the thread!!

Yeah, my thought on that was just that we've been told a number of times that the data can be screwy and/or delayed, with the one exception of KZ.

Either that or they're taking the "long way 'round" from JNAP to Taylor (or whatever yard/staging area they're using).
