Can you post a photo? (Hey, I am from Missouri - show me.)
Actually, when I looked at it this morning I noticed it is probably at 10% that it turns red. My oil life is at 3% currently and the DEF is at a little more than twice that, both have been red for a couple hundred miles.
I'll take a photo or video when I drive home tonight and post it.

The dealer did not fill-up the DEF fluid nor did they fill up the tank with Diesel fuel at delivery. They claimed they couldn't find a diesel station, but I personally think they were trying not to spend any money since it was a Chrysler employee purchase. Since this dealer with the exact vehicle i wanted was an hour away, I didn't go back to have the DEF topped off. I waited until the low DEF fluid warning came on before I filled up the DEF fluid on my own.
Your dealer has to fill the DEF, as he is paid by Jeep to do this for you. Tell him to check his PDI - the dealer checklist. It says right on there to top off DEF. If it was not topped off on delivery, go back and have them call the regional rep, and they will authorize a fill.
I picked mine up from River Oaks with less than a 1/4 tank of Diesel and a half-tank of DEF.
The GM sent me an email about my buying experience (which was good), but I told him this is the first time in my life I had ever picked up a dealer prepped vehicle new or used that didn't have full tank of fuel in it.... He promptly replied asking me to come in for w fill up. I may take a rain check on the DEF since it's HOT here in Houston.
