Did these numbers include those already shipped as well....just try to keep a running tally.

If so, then over half of our cars have shipped out of Charlevoix already

Also I was backing that big thing up and had no problem thanks to the big 8.4 screen backup camera; worked like a charm. You know the vehicle was just so new to me it was really hard to take it all in. But it should do very well for the pickup crowd.
Thanks for the writeup. Many of the Ram CRD articles I've seen so far are just copies of Chrysler press releases with a few lines of fluff wrapped around them. Don't feel bad about not taking photos because those are popping up here and there, it's the normal driving impressions that are hard to find.

I haven't been a diesel guy in the past, but a few years back I started looking at it more seriously. In the US market we've pretty much had to either stick to gasoline or pick a car based on the fuel. Seeing more diesel options popping up around the time that I'm looking at possible replacements is way better luck than I usually have. Even if I end up sticking to gas I'll at least be able to make the choice.

Re: 2014 diesel production

As newly minted KZ, this is Christmas early. No small amount of guilt, though, coming in earlier than some of you awesome original forum trailblazers. It won't be the real deal until we're all across the finish line.

Totals (maybe behind by 24 hours)

~1180 - Charlevoix (shy of 10% I of these may have already moved)
~650 - Java
~60 - Woodhaven
~140 - Detroit Axle
~350 - Plant Yard

It is easier to grasp if you look at the total because the Premium Members will still catch back up to the average...

~770 have KZ from Charlevoix. You can't keep that pace and not ship out of another yard soon and TRUST YOU ME they want em gone!!

Shannon, I will PM you status before I can even verify it if I see anything even remotely involving movement on your vehicle....

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just so you guys know, your enthusiasm and obsession is infectious. I haven't even made a real decision on what to buy yet, but I still keep reading this thread AND when I saw a Grand Cherokee pulled up to a diesel/gas combo pump I could not resist taking a quick peek at which nozzle was in the tank (it was gas, of course).

I hope you'll all use this power for good instead of evil.

No the CARB hold was lifted a little while back and programming changes made.... I can now say that.

Damn straight.. And you guys (you and Milous) ought to see that build total start creeping back up here pretty soon.. From what I hear, they wanna build the crap out of these things for the next few months!

I don't think anyone expected this kinda demand.. I remember back during the January launch, there were maybe 10 ppl on here interested in the diesel.. Including Temerarius and Chiv. Lol.. But now, nobody REALLY wants a Hemi. It's V6 or better V6 really. Depending on ppl's needs.

Of course the market is much bigger than this site, but I think the magazines did this lil puppy a huge favor. Bc even on here, the demand has sky rocketed!

Unfortunately they want to flood the market during the worst time of the year for diesels but there is always the people that know what they want.

I do believe after a test drive by someone wanting it for towing or the many things where CRDs are beneficial it will be a no brainer.

Here's to hoping that the CRD is a huge success after the last 7 months of troubles.
