Is the JGC Diesel instrument panel cluster configurable like the RAM diesel?

I was looking thru a RAM 2014 brochure at the dealer and this caught my eyes...Real time horsepower numbers... The brochure also talks about "dozens of graphics relaying information on the most important mechanical and electrical functions". I know my 3.6 V6 does not have "dozens" but rather a "handful" of such features. So, is the JGC Diesel instrument panel cluster configurable like the RAM diesel?

Someone really needs to unlock these hidden performance pages across the board for the 8.4 RA interface.

The EVIC menu in my Summit includes oil temp, oil life, trans temp, DEF level, and TPMS screens.

EVIC on the summit has many more displays:
  1. Fuel Economy
  2. Trip-A
  3. Trip-B
  4. Audio Information
  5. Stored Messages
  6. Analog Speedometer
  7. Digital Speedometer
  8. TPMS
  9. Trans temp
  10. Oil temp
  11. Oil life
  12. Battery voltage
  13. DEF level
  14. Selec-Terrain mode
  15. Quadra-Lift mode
  16. Drivetrain status
  17. Wheel Articulation
  18. Adaptive Cruise Control status

Add to this the two programmable upper indicators that can be set to:
  1. Compass
  2. Outside Temp
  3. Time
  4. Range To Empty
And the static displays:
  1. Tachometer
  2. Coolant temp
  3. Fuel gauge

And you get a good number of displays and indicators. The EVIC on the JGC might be different than the Ram as the vehicle has a different utilitarian purpose.

Sorry, yes, you are correct. I was focused only on the "vehicle information" submenu, which I would assume is where the other features are found in the Ram dash.

I'm going to take a guess here that many of those same displays will be available in the ram. Just like the SRT the ram has some menus we do not. I'll be honest, I don't need to know my 0 to 60 but I'd find it a hoot to play with here and there. An example of a Ram menu I'd like would be that its odd not being able to display the EGT on a diesel vehicle with a 7k plus tow rating. I imagine other menus would be of interest to me (and others) as well.

It would be awesome if we had some gurus working on this because you could almost certainly add (some) menus from one vehicle to another if you had the skills.

You can also customize the EVIC with what you want permanently displayed in the corners (Temp, Time, Compass etc.).

I think the SRT offers more functions like the RAM. Realtime 0-60 measurements etc.
