Isn't there a dealer prep checklist from Jeep that tells them they are supposed to top off the DEF tank prior to turning the vehicle over to the customer?

If this is not clearly identified as a dealer responsibility, I'm afraid I'm going to have to carry three jugs of DEF with me when I finally get to take delivery.

There is detailed instructions on how all PDIs are to be performed as well as a checklist. If the dealer argues ask them to print off the "Complete PDI Instructions" and it says 2 things "Check ALL Fluids" Plus towards the bottom it also for double check states the following "Top off Diesel Exhaust Fluid Reservoir" For those of you that have received your SFU and did not receive a full tank, please return to your dealer and have them fix this. They were PAID to do this!

Route 66, myself and several others(?) are waiting for a Colorado bound train to head west. Willx or Milous? Is there any news in the crystal ball? The wait is approaching excruciating.

I am guessing you will have yours within a week to a week and a half. The race is on
That was one of my best trips in recent memory. Still sitting at Paper Receipt since 10/29. Let's see, do you have to get your's back home to see who's is here first? :-)

Re: 2014 diesel production

I am thinking it may actually be quicker to order a new Jeep at this point.

On a side note, looked for any EcoDiesel Overlands in DCR and the closest is 500 miles. I do see some that are "In Transit" within 200 miles though.

It would be nice if something would happen, but it doesn't seem like moving to KZ has been much of a help either for many.

Again I feel bad for you guys if they don't go by Monday at noon at will be surprised but I will also try to find out more on why.

On the other hand, I can likely take a look around for you. Ordering will definitely take you longer and your unit will be at your dealer well before that. There may be ways to see what is close to you though. I will take a look and see if I have that info today.
