Sorry if I'm getting antsy now that we're getting so close after this long wait. Thx to Will, Milous, Chev and all the others who are putting in so much (unpaid) time to help feed our obsession.
They "from what I've seen" are still trying to ship out the Cherokee there is a lot down the street from my work with a couple hundred still sitting there.

This question may have been answered a few hundred posts ago, but if so I can't find it: Are Milous and the dealers accessing the same database when they check on production status? My dealer says there hasn't been an update on my vehicle since September 28 when it was sent to storage, but MOTS says it is "staged" for shipment. Just curious.

Good to know it takes the hi flow. My vw tdi passat has never had trouble fitting the high flow nozzles. You can't lock it in at full speed but even holding it at whatever the max speed that it can take is so fast that I'm in and out faster than any other car at the pumps.

Also has anyone listened to the HK system and the one that comes in the Overland side by side? I know the audio was discussed a couple months ago but I don't recall anyone saying they compared side by side

I can see the burn marks on the side of the crates now... All that raw diesel power just barely contained.

edit: wait... did you go KZ? I thought MOTS still says you are JS?

To those that have taken delivery, how is it driving in Ecco mode?

Willx commented a bit on sport mode. Interested in the differences between the modes in performance and mileage.

Thanks- Eric

Hm, I am in the same boat. If mine isn't built by this weekend, I will be in the 6th week of D1 status. I'll have to call my dealer on Monday to ask what's up and if there is a problem with my order.
