While mentioned earlier, perhaps this absence of crash rating is or was an issue?
Thats an Australian article. Australia most likely does their own crash testing and doesn't use NHTSA or IIHS ratings.

So this really is the calm before the possible storm.

Special Weather Alert: Skittles might be falling from the tailpipes of JGCs. Expect 2-4" of Skittles and very happy owners....stay tuned to this channel for further details as the storm gets closer.

I'm not getting worked up anymore. We have all gotten our hopes and been disappointed so many times and for so long that I don't care. I want this Jeep but I cant wait forever. If only we knew back in January that the diesel wouldn't be available until November (or later) no one would upset at the delays.
