Thanks. I purchased my rig from a Dealer way up North from me and I haven't really had it in for any service yet (knock on wood) so I really don't have a relationship with a dealer. But I found all three kits on line at a Dealer in Westbury NY that offered free shipping for any order over $99. I'm sure I can have them installed locally without too much trouble.

So found a dealer to get it looked at, apparently I ran over some brush and jammed a stick up near the DEF injector and tore the wiring loose! Think now I should have got the skid plates but would they have covered the tubing and wiring bundle in area two ft. or so behind the passenger front wheel? Anybody know if skid plates would have protected this vulnerable area of Diesel powered JGC?

Service DEF - See Dealer

I have a 1995 Grand Cherokee that I have ultimate confidence in taking nearly anywhere: brush, rocks, ice, snow, water... My plan was to do the same with the new vehicle. However, I am very concerned that something will break or cause the vehicle to go into limp mode or some form of lockout. Very disappointing.
Good day
