Re: 2014 diesel production

Will, my wife says your wife must really love you if she can tolerate you obsessing over this thread and is still willing to marry you

Re: 2014 diesel production

Congratulations, Will! Best wishes.

Like Lilv2128, I am no longer in the GCD business. I keep coming here to check this thread because when I first started looking for a new SUV early this year, I was dead set on a HEMI. Now, I am a diesel convert, eventhough I ended up buying a different brand.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I can't believe Jeep hasn't delivered on the diesel as yet.
I will keep checking the site.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Thank you everyone for all of your warm wishes, I very much appreciate it and it is further proof of the little family group that we have here.

I wanted to make mention of Shannon's comment about my wife being tolerant of time spent on the forum and yes very much she is. Camping is a big part of our lives 7 to 8 months of the year, so we are both looking forward to be back in the comfort of Diesel towing. On the other hand I did get asked once by her if she needed to post something here to get a faster response from me , so I need to keep balance of those scales!

Again thanks a lot guys, and please don't forget (or let others forget) you and me spend time here because we are entranced by a vehicle. Chevy and Marlon are good enough to help us with that.

Today is multiple runs to the airport, half of the family is from overseas!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Finally a status change on VOTS today! I'm in production Two questions:

- I went straight to paint, skipped frame... So what are they painting?
- Given no diesels are shipping, why do they keep making them? Storage capacity must be getting tight!

VOTS is only really updated once per day so the update missed your "frame" stage. It'll likely miss your other stages too and you'll next see it in "shipment." If you're in paint this morning your build will likely be done by this evening.

My gas Overland went this way. Then MOTS showed it depart the facility yesterday morning and disappear. Oh well.

Found this on another tread here. Is this even possible? Would think Milous would see KZ and movement on the trains. Still think the hold up is emissions, but it would be pretty hard to ship over a thousand unicorns without being seen.

Perhaps this was already answered here, but are we waiting for the government shutdown to end before our diesels ship? Or is the issue more complicated than that? Thx

If emissions or a government shutdown were the case, why wouldn't they be shipping to the land of the double double, poutine, maple syrup, toques, ketchup chips, Casey and Finnegan, Robertson screwdrivers, kraft dinner (not mac & cheese), Canadian Tire money, homo milk (not whole milk), pop (not soda), colour, honour, labour and the use of 'eh'. Enough obscure Canadian references?

Back on question, our goverment isn't shutdown (depending on who you ask and how you look at government but that's a different side bar). Would they not be shipping to Canada or have they not cleared our emissions here yet either?
