Re: 2014 diesel production

Congrats to everyone getting their Jeeps. Seems like the back log is caught up, and they are now on a normal production pace. Even though they are real, I will always refer to mine as a SFU.

At least one Aug (10th) order SFU still roaming out there.... But should be hitting the dealer pickup rail yard today (based on MOTS). Only about 30 mins from dealer, so it's probably only a couple more days.. quite a wait, but I'm sure well worth it.

That's good news! My order date was 3 days after yours so I'm guessing mine should be in production soon. Can't wait, I hope to take delivery before Christmas!

Re: 2014 diesel production

For those of you in, or about in, production, congratulations. The build period is essentially one day.

My gizmo made it to the dealer today, so I will be off to Houston tomorrow (weather permitting). Here is the photo.

Congrats man! Mine made it yesterday morning. I'm heading to VA to pick it up tomorrow as well.

DEF filling by the dealer

for anyone getting ready to go to their dealer and pickup their beloved SFU - first, congrats - you'll love it!

Second, many of us had to argue with our dealers to make sure we get the SFU with a full DEF tank. Finally, Chrysler came up with a TSB that clearly gives instructions to the dealers. I suggest printing this TSB together with Dan's checklist when getting ready to go to the dealer.

Good luck!

This has excellent information about DEF. Every owner should review it. I noticed that it says the dealer is "requested" to fill the tank. Hmmm. Not "required".

Re: 2014 diesel production

Hmm, for anyone who has noticed, yes, those first 3.0NAF's were dusty. They were sitting for quite a while, collecting dust.

The engines we are running now, are clean!

You might be on to something, Shannon.
