I've busy so busy this week, I have had limited time to chime in. Will, congrats on your Summit delivery, I look forward to your reviews. Your first impressions have already been a great value.

It is crazy how busy you and Milous have been with the launch, and rail tracking has yet to hit full stride. Y'all are doing a fantastic job and keeping people informed that otherwise would be in the dark.

Looks like my CRD will be the first in Texas; it looks good for Monday/Tuesday delivery. I'm looking forward to sharing that experience and posting some pics soon.

Good luck to all as the rail cars line up to move'em out. We will all have something to be thankful for this year.

I agree. I'm not a big fan of the EcoDiesel name. I might remove the emblem and put a CRD emblem on. Mopar sells them.

I tend to agree with the others. Warm it up through light load driving, and once its at normal temps, find a freeway on ramp and give her a decent flogging. Also, it may just take more time. I wouldn't worry yet.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I don't mind the EcoDiesel name at all. For laymen, it lets them know that this isn't the same old smokey polluting diesel of yonder.

I love that EcoDiesel badge. We don't have it Down-Under. I'll swap you our CRD badge for your EcoDiesel one. (I polished it today - it's still boring though )

Does anyone remember the organizations you can join to get below invoice pricing like the Affiliate Reward program? Fr05tbite needs some help negotiating a better deal. I tried searching but no luck.
Thx

Yes they do. Noticed that when we took the plant tour several weeks ago.

I used tread lightly, as I believe in their cause. ALL affiliates require 30 days before you can use them. I had my number within a week, but was told that Chrysler is the one that requires a full 30 day wait. No big deal, just join the day you order, and the 30 days pass before you take delivery (or in our case, 10 months to a year will pass)
