"Skittle" refers to the rainbow often seen in unicorn pictures, often appearing to come from the animals hind quarters.... Hope that helps. Search the forum threads for "skittle farting unicorn" and you can read back through some of the fun. Don't ask about inverted pork rectums....
Minor correction, it was temerarius who came up with it. And for the poster who wanted the pic, if you look him up you'll see he has a picture as his avatar.

That's right... and I believe it also started as "skittle and rainbow farting unicorn" and got shortened to "skittle farting unicorn" or SFU.

Anybody else see this underneath the hood lid? Weather stripping on one side but not the other?

Think that might be to direct the air into the air filter or something like that. Looked at that on mine before and that's what it appeared to be for. Oh mine is a diesel. Also could be to keep debris from going down into the air filter tube.

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

Bluespark thread is all about a tuner box.
Might want to check that one out.
I am waiting on Cobb since I like their work on my BMW...
Those guys are very capable tuning turbos regardless of gas or diesel...

Is BS the only tune(r) out right now for the CRD? I always like when there are multiple companies designing and pushing out a product.

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

As far as I know yes they are the only ones since this is a new engine for the US. Not a lot of tuners in Europe or OZ but maybe some of our other members can let us know. I know that once the numbers go up many will begin to turn this. Remember Gail Banks has already tuned this engine to a max output so I am betting he will be coming out with some products as will Bully Dog and SCMT.
We just have to wait a while until there is volume to dictate tuners spending IRAD money...
I am interested as well as I ran a STMC tune on my Super Duty...
