Nothing to be fixed as nothing is broken... that's all I can say .

Thanks Milous! You continue to be my Jeep hero. You, Willx and Chevy have made the long wait as sweet as it is bitter. And, not to forget the rest of you either. I'll almost be sad, when I'm too busy jeeping to spend this much time on JG.

Just keep in mind that according to the rules when you signed up here that you will, after vehicle delivery, still be required to spend x amount of time here on JG ("x" is determined by a formula based on peak time spent here).

Don't worry! I already have big plans to post all my pics from my off-road adventures here on Colorado. I'm sure I'll be here a bunch, just not on this thread. :-)

I ordered a summit diesel. Currently I drive an Overland V8. I'm wonder if this diesel that I ordered will have some good guts, meaning will I miss my V8 power even if the diesel is turbo!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Well guys first off here is my guess to the issue... applying window stickers to all of the cars!!!! This could be because of late mileage calculations or EPA certification (and government shutdown is slowing this to a standstill?).

Secondly, even though this put a slight damper on my day.. hearing I wont get my Jeep for at least another 7-10 days minimum.... I found out I will be having a little boy next February! Ultrasound was today and once I saw that I envisioned us offroading in the Jeep, pulling a trailer with some dirtbikes or quads loaded on it, heading out hiking or camping via the Grand Cherokee, and playing hockey... which you can loosely relate to the grand cherokee since it will haul our gear.

Anyway long day, mixed emotions in some ways but amazing day in the end! Now lets get the Jeep here so I can get it ready for his arrival in a few months!

I was thinking the same thing, but you beat me to it Jim.

I was told last Thursday about the movement and the "issue" and what was implied was that the issue was being resolved fairly quickly. And it was (is) my assumption that it wouldn't affect anything else thereafter, mainly bc we have no diesels in repair for it, and haven't stopped building them. But I could be wrong. Everything could be getting done offsite, without a production stop. I'm not sure at the moment... Just wanted to be clear on that.
This is interesting. Thanks for the info Chevy. VOTs put mine in paint last Thursday and it has never left since. And we know VOTs isn't a reliable source of information. I wonder if they find out the issue just before mine started.
