I'm trying to resist making a "short bus" joke here ...
haha...I'd be more then happy to ride the short bus if it meant it gets here this week

Re: 2014 diesel production

BTW, for those headed west, if you haven't already found this (or something similar) - here's an interactive map of the Union Pacific railroad lines. It gives a good idea of the exact path our SFUs are likely taking.

Hopefully it's smooth railin' from here on out. Based on previous MOTS data, it looks like it's probably just "check points" from now on. Skik will probably be leaving us in Cheyenne, and Temerarius probably around Green River, WY.

Chiv, can't believe your's hasn't been even KZ'd yet!

Just when I get hope things are moving along the whole process seems to go in slow motion.
Can't say who, but is very high up.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Hey,

While we are all waiting....

Here's a way to kill some time: Jeep's vehicle app for iOS. Has a bunch of cool info, and some video clips, and is slightly less boring than reading the manual for the 10th time on your iPad.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jeep...484576109?mt=8

Enjoy!

Yeah... I was trying to sound normal... I think we all know better by now.

There's some cool Jeep History stuff built into the app as well. I thought it was better done than I expected.

I've been chewing my nails down to nubs today hoping that my jeep gets over its siderodomophobia, and finally gets on a train.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Finally paid my $$ to become level 3 member and sent a PM to Milous with all pertinent info for tracking on the diesel. Where do I find the reply? Does Milous PM the replies or is there a separate site for this?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Holy crap. I thought I was stuck in eternal purgatory....



Nothing on the other guys yet? Now I feel guilty for not being the last to go KZ... Roller coaster doesn't begin to describe this experience.


THANKS WILLX!
