I fully agree with this. If there are few actual reported failures/issues, it's not going to get changed any time soon. Anecdotal concern just doesn't count...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just got done picking up my 2015. Small easter egg it may be, but my Jeep has trail rated badges on both driver and passenger sides. As far as I can recall, previous years all had badges only on the drivers side fender?

Well speak of the devil, there's a TSB issued just today on this, applies to all diesels built on or before 4/1/2014-

Nice to see them acknowledge the issue anyway. I agree there didn't seem to be a large explosion of failure anecdotes on here, but there were definitely a couple active threads in the EcoDiesel subforum with clear failure examples, plus dom42's protection plate project. All relatively quiet lately though.

The insiders have been awfully quiet lately. Fiat must be clamping down.

hmmm, seems that TSB leaves out step 16 - "add one of Dom42's skid plates"

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The 2015 manuals are up on the Jeep site now. I guess they are getting close to going live with the 2015 build site.

I cannot find the 2015 GC manual on the Jeep site. Can you post a link?
