I was hooking the horn trying to get him to roll the window down so I could interrogate him. I think I scared him off as he made a quick left and took off.

I think some of you could have your own show like Storm watchers.... maybe "Jeep Trackers"

Sorry just got a picture in my head of someone driving down the road with their head out the window in the rain. That is determination!

And shifting and taking pictures. Met my girlfriend for lunch. Had her holding the wheel. We Jeep trackers are crazy dedicated. The gf had a few reprimanding words for me. But she kept us steady-ish.

Re: 2014 diesel production

It bothered me until I found it. Below is from the owners manual diesel supplement page 66:

Exhaust System – Regeneration Required Now

Exhaust Filter XX% Full Safely Drive at Highway Speeds
to Remedy
will be displayed on the Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC) if the exhaust particulate filter
reaches 80% of its maximum storage capacity. Under
conditions of exclusive short duration and low speed
driving cycles, your diesel engine and exhaust after-
treatment system may never reach the conditions re-
quired to cleanse the filter to remove the trapped PM. If
this occurs, the “Exhaust Filter XX% Full Safely Drive at
Highway Speeds to Remedy” message will be displayed
in the EVIC. If this message is displayed, you will hear
one chime to assist in alerting you of this condition.
By simply driving your vehicle at highway speeds for up
to 20 minutes, you can remedy the condition in the
particulate filter system and allow your diesel engine and
exhaust after-treatment system to cleanse the filter to
remove the trapped PM and restore the system to normal
operating condition.
Exhaust System – Regeneration In Process Exhaust
Filter XX% Full
Indicates that the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is self-
cleaning. Maintain your current driving condition until
regeneration is completed

I suppose they have to release the 20,000 before worrying about the 2000. They state the 20,000 will be delivered in the next 10 days. Hope we don't have to wait that long before ours ship.

So it looks like one out of 5,000 escaped or ran away. LOL
