How were the folks over at Sherman jeep and your dealings with the salesman and all involved? How was your buying experience?

Re: Has anyone gotten their 2014 yet?

No need to wait for a "break in period". The best running engines are broke in hard. You need to seat the ringlands against the cylinder walls and that happens with cylinder pressure, AKA full throttle! Start banging out some 0-60s! Anyways the most crucial part of engine break in is the first few miles.

Listening to you, a lot of people are going to trash their engines.

The SRT manual would disagree with you, as would the SRT technicians. I asked this exact question, they said that yes, the 6.4 *does* require a break in period.

500 miles / 800 kms is what they suggest, and pretty much every SRT manual says the same thing. If this was a Lambo or Ferrari, then i agree with you as they're run hard before we get them - but the 6.4 Hemi is not one of those engines.

They are great, its the third car i bought there, its also where i ordered my megacab, and price wise, they beat all the other dealerships i went to. They get alot of bad reviews on yelp, etc. But tell you the truth i never had any problems there...

Re: Has anyone gotten their 2014 yet?

Just picked her up . . . what a joy! The most fun 5 miles I've ever driven in bumper to bumper traffic. Now too bad I won't be back home to drive her for 2 weeks.
