Another update info as of 3/4/2015 2:57 pacific time

Just got back from dealer and confirmed that Jeep came out with a DEF bracket which is suppose to solve the vulnerable def injector issue. Sales ppl looked at me all weirdo because I was that guy under the jeep taking pics and video and not wanting any help lol.

heres a pic for better reference. Look how much the harness is expose still. The injector is as well but not visible in this pic

Here is a view of no protection at all( use the big hole for reference to compare with picture above

Heres the JeepEcoDieselfix protection plate. YOu can clearly see how much more protection there is..

So, I feel this new OEM bracket will help out with some of the water forging and hitting puddles of water at high speed. Let me explain. I feel like the injector is the weak link here because at the smallest point of the injector, it's plastic. And when one charges water , the force of the water coming off the tire leverages itself off the frame between the harness In turn breaking it off at the injector. So yes this will help, SOMEWHAT. But are u kidding me Jeep? Why not go bigger and cover the whole damn thing? Why not just copy what I have ? Yeah the bracket takes care of some of the water issue. But what about road debris like tire strips and or whatever is laying on our hwy's. Let's not even talk about Murphy's law when talking about off roading lol.

I'm pretty convinced that who ever(@ fca) is in charge of design etc is just not that bright!! I mean you guys can clearly see that a lot of the harness is exposed let alone the injector itself. A branch or whatever sticking up can still tag the harness( outside of frame rail) and the injector ( inside the frame rail)

Are u guys willing to take that chance? I'm not obviously because I'm the maker of thejeepecodieselfix plate and I'm gonna swear mine is way better lol.

Looking at the bracket even more, for the 2014 and early 2015 that don't have the hole, if you went this route this new OEM bracket requires two holes to be drilled.

So now if you decide to use the jeepecodieselfix def protection plate, you will no longer need to drill into the frame because there is already mounting location in that location for the oem bracket jeep just added. YOu will just need to open up the rear pilot hole in the jeepecodieselfix plate and reuse the oem bolt. The Jeepecodieselfix protection plate can be installed in conjunction with the oem bracket now coming on some 2015's

This is to gauge interest on who wants to get one. Please start a list of names and copy and paste it to your post and add your name if u want 1 or 2 or 3.

Im actually giving the original prototype to my friend as she has an eco diesel as well. Im going to the shop again sometime this week so i can produce a better one even tho the original came out really well. Id just like to perfect it as much as possible. It will prob just get better as we order different batches. Sucks but thats the way it always is

As far as pricing im not even sure. Id like to get a finalized list of how many ppl will for sure want to commit to this so i can get us best pricing possible. But like i stated in other thread it really should be somewhere around $100-$200 im hoping. Im not tryn to make any money off this but i can not do it for free. The more time my guy spends on this the more it takes away from him producing my other products(different industries), which is what pays the bills.

Can someone copy and paste this threads link to the other DEF warning threads as well as pic and link of skid plate from other thread. I hav issues with tapatalk and not around a computer again

Link to video of installed DEF protection plate.

I will take one as well. Put me on the first batch order.

I counted up the names of people on the other threads and came out with 12 buyers who commented/committed to purchasing one each. If able to produce and sell for $100-$200($150 seems like a nice number?) I think the chances are good for a sell-through. Posting on some of the "other" forums is also a option to increase the sales numbers and decrease the costs.

Re: DEF INJECTOR and Harness protection group buy
OK to get this party started, I browsed through this and the other thread and compiled a list of people who explicitly expressed interest in buying one.

If you want to purchase one of these protection plates, please copy and paste this list into your post and add your name to it! Dom wants us to keep a running tally of names. If you want more than one, please indicate the quantity you want.
