Don't panic too much, some of the stuff like doors is a simple striker adjustment and my tail lights are off further (not justifying) but again in my case they were able to make it 95% better with a slight adjustment.

In case you didn't see the MOTS update earlier, I want to point out your truck is on the move. No status update yet, but it is physically being transferred. It isn't much but it is something.

Thanks good to know. I just hope I don't have that issue when I make up my mind on diesel or 5.7. Still just waiting to take a drive. I feel naked with just one vehicle in the Jeep Garage and that's the 5.7; what will the neighbors think when they see two GC and lord help them if both are black. LOL

Congrats!

Now, I should be on the same train as beark9. We both have close destinations.

For efficiency sake, if someone at the plant is reading this: I'll slip you a franklin if you load mine up too.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Does getting unloaded from a rail car and not being on a semi within 5 days seem abnormal?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Mine found a train to be on......, hopefully the west coast EXPRESS.
Husky x-mats are closer to a new home.

Only a few more days......

looking more at my driver trail light I noticed the bumper cover is closer to the hatch than on the passenger side.

I am happy to see that I *finally* made it on a train this morning (after you, of course).

Now, if my SFU actually gets to Houston before Brainstormer and Shannon pick up theirs... we could have a nice meet-up!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Quick question - slightly off topic

on the JeepGarage.org website - what is the color for the red SRT shown? Is that the Redline or the Deep Cherry Red? I'm guessing the deep cherry...?!

Thanks!
