I'll be tracking Shannon in a bit. I'll settle for a hearty handshake by the way.

I hope you get delivery soon. I've been rooting for you. Mine is now 6 days old, and getting better every day.

For those who think you need to DRIVE one - hogwash... just go order it. Have you heard a single JG member complain about the engine or the performance? JUST DO IT!!!

I've been saying that since 2011... the first time I got to drive one!

RHDs are weird to drive though!

What kills me most about this engine is how QUIET it is. It's just unbelievable.

It's not right that a fellow aviator who ordered his CRD as soon as was possible to still be waiting for delivery when those who ordered long after have already received theirs.

It's just not right.

Devin informed me of you awesome guys finally receiving them!

Now with that said, in a matter of a few WEEKS, my signature will change and I'll have some new info to post!!!! There's a LOT of activity going on in the PILOT BUILD!!! ROOM!!!!!

... and I even know a few things about the WL already.... Still don't know if the Durango will continue or not.

I concur, but once you have it and experience it, you will quickly forget the wait. Funny how that works.

Yeah, I keep thinking what's a few more days after waiting this long? But then realize how close it is (literally a 20 minute drive from my house) and I can't help but get excited. I blame this forum for adding to the anticipation:-)

Re: 2014 diesel production

Milous, Willx and/or any of the JNAP crew - can any of you get the part# for the engine block heater cord for the EcoDiesel? I stopped at the service shop today and asked them to order one for me (I was supposed to have it from the start, but it didn't get onto the order) and they said they're not showing one for the Diesel - just the V6 and Hemi.

Re: 2014 diesel production

SFU arrived at dealer today. Stopped by to take a ride and fill out paperwork. I'll take delivery tomorrow or Friday. My quick review of the ride - WOW!
