It's everything I was hoping for, and more.



I'll try to take some pictures in the next day or two.

Congratulations Doc!

Did you ask any specifics about the DEF plate install (i.e. rattle mitigation and the use of loctite)?

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

So I got a call from the dealer today. The regional guy got a hold of the factory and the issue is that something with the trim failed quality inspection. He doesn't know what it is that is wrong though. Supposedly they are trying to figure out how to get it back into the plant to get it fixed. My guess is they are waiting for the shutdown of the assembly line because of the paint shop to take it back in and correct it. We shall see. If my hunch is correct hopefully it will ship some time next week. Not good news but at least I kinda know what is going on now.

2015 Deliveries?

Well at least they caught it. It would have sucked to notice something wrong when you pick it up, or worse.. after taking it home.

Yea, it just seems strange to me that they can't have someone walk outside with what ever is wrong with the interior and fix it. Unless they put the wrong interior in it all together.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

To everyone who owns a 2014 or 2015 ecodiesel. How about post some positive experiences. Lots of doom and gloom with the DEF issues (thanks DOM for fix), DEF Injector leaks, fluid maybe stale or bad, The whole shutdown issues with the CEL. Is this vehicle really that bad or are these just isolated issues in the big picture.

2014 Overland CRD. 34,000 miles (90% Hwy), 4000 miles towing 6600 lb. Airstream. Average milage 28 mpg (18 mpg towing trailer). Installed DOM's protector plate as soon as it was available. No major issues. Had a couple of rattles I had to track down and the Sirius/XM reception is poor. Overall, very happy with my JGC CRD.
