Im not a pilot... Have many friends who are pilots though. Actually I have this photo because I work as an engineer for an aircraft engine manufacturer and that aircraft is a personal favorite of mine.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I haven't been on this thread for a while so apologize if this question is redundant. I was looking at our local Jeep dealer's website and he has a '14 JGC Limited 4x2 EcoDiesel in route that does NOT have the Lux II package. I thought the LUX II package was mandatory when ordering the diesel? Is this a recent change?

Re: 2014 diesel production

I just sent a PM to Scott, asking if he can set up a new thread - one above the line - in the area with the ordering info and features and changes. Hoping for a thread for JGC diesel owners, so we have a place to stay connected, and to post info on our new rides. After talking with most of you over the past countless months, I would like to continue to stay connected and share our diesel stories and experiences. This thread has grown to be the third (and is in line to become the second) biggest thread in the garage. Too much info to sift thru in this thread once we take delivery, so I though a new thread for owners would be great. Also, next year, Scott is trying to set up a JGC get together - probably in the KY area. Would be great to meet people and put faces to the names.

I would be in for that get together if I can at all swing my schedule... maybe TN area Smoky Mountains...? Gorgeous countryside... and perhaps a parade of JGC diesels through the Tail of the Dragon?

I agree...

You are a step or maybe even more closer to the end. Heck, your jeep may be on the ramp next to a rail car being loaded now.

For chiv or cny or myself...we are days from that. Our estimated delivery date came and went a month ago and dont have a new one.

When I ordered my Limited 4x4 in August I was required me to take the Luxury Group II package. Just went on Jeep's website and ran the build your own tool. Still makes you take the Luxury Group II when you pick the 3.0 CRD.

Maybe dealers have a way around this, but I couldn't find it.

Only the 4X4 requires the Lux II package. I do not know when Jeep made the change.

Just got a PM from Scott, and he is setting up a new thread for the new Diesel owners. I hope to see everyone there when they take delivery.

I am also an Engi-nerd. Pilots and engineers have something very important in common....

High reliability and efficiency by design.

The well designed diesel engine is the perfect example of this. We can't help but be attracted to this.
