As I wrote in the Production thread, the DEF information should be reviewed by every owner, particularly the shelf-life table.

Thanks, you timing was great. I just got a bill from my dealer for the DEF fluid they installed. Also $2.50 for EPA disposal of something related to the procedure. I will use this to have them eliminate the bill.

The Sirius is an interesting question. This is my first time with it so I can't compare. I have been unimpressed with the quality. Some have said that it is the compression and low band width dedicated to it. The antenna being off is an interesting twist.

Looks like a match made in heaven!

My DEF gauge did something weird...my truck was filled 100% with DEF when I picked it up so that was fine; then about a week and 1000 miles later the gauge still showed 100% but the arc bar graph disappeared from the gauge for several starts. I cycled through the settings and all but that didn't bring it back it came back after a start up.. I thought that was weird the bars disappearing but I guess it was just a fluke...odd though
DEF gauge doesn't display level if you use remote start. Weird. I noticed it a few weeks ago.

I was looking around underneath my Jeep last night and noticed a few corroded parts. Specifically the driveshaft at the joint about mid-body and a few larger bolts towards the rear. Vehicle rolled off the line on 2 Oct, Sat for 6 weeks, and I've been driving it for 3. Plenty of moisture, but no salt or snow exposure.

I'll put it in jack mode and take a more thorough look tomorrow, but curious if/what others are seeing.

Have you seen 200sxr's thread regarding the noise? This is scary!!!
Read it Suspension noise - this could be the cause
I already looked at my struts and they seem to be tight, but who knows if there is maybe a production spec flaw...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Just thought I would share a problem I just had. We had a winter storm here yesterday, and my Jeep was covered in snow. It sat in the garage last night, and most of the snow melted off. Today, my wife and I went shopping. On the way home, I decided to fuel the Jeep, as it is going to be below zero for the next few days. At the gas station, I pushed the button to pop the fuel door open, and the door was frozen shut. I pressed on the door, and kept pressing the button, but it would not open. I kept going back and forth between the button and the door, trying to work the door open. I had to have my wife press the button at the same time I hooked my fingernails in the small gap around the fuel door, and pried it open. Lucky my wife was with, as this was a two person job. Just thought I would let everyone know incase you run into the same problem.

There's a manual release for the fuel door. I wonder if that would've worked any better?

With the poor alignment of the door water can easily freeze in there. My dealer won't adjust the alignment of the fuel door. Like like I'll be digging into myself.

I'd be interested to see and hear your experience with this as well. Mine is off a little but not enough I really want the dealer messing with it. So if it's something easy I would just do it myself other it will just remain this way.

Garages are for storing stuff and rebuilding classic cars, not for SFUs. The simple solution is keep it outside, otherwise you'll spoil it.

I don't think it would have made a difference, as the latch was releasing, but the door itself was frozen to the body of the Jeep.

Going to be about -10F tonight. I spoil myself, not the Jeep.
