Re: Trip Report: Vermont to Boreal Forest in Quebec

Beautiful pictures! Sounds like a wonderful trip (minus the big Diesel pump). Curious to hear how the 4wd road was.

Autoweek's take on the Summit Ecodiesel

I didn't say it is bad, just louder. I love the Diesel and am glad I opted for this engine. It is a GREAT tow vehicle and fun off road as well.

Re: What does your dealer charge for an oil change?

My dealer charged me $210 for 4 diesel oil changes - a Mopar offer. And I got a $10 iTunes card! All dealers should have access to the Mopar service offer, my dealer does not mark it up like some...

Re: DEF INJECTOR and Harness protection group buy

Dom, no problem. Everything at work this week has taken 2-3 times longer than expected. We know how it goes. Any trips to Denver planned in the near future? :-)

Happy 4th of July everybody!

Re: Jgc eco diesel pictures

As if $2495 for ORII wasn't enough! First new tires, then the extra skid plate, what's next? Please don't answer that. I'm sure you have many ideas! LOL!

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

The funnel is for the large nozzles at the truck stops. If you go to a station with auto diesel, you won't need the nozzle.

Re: Overland vs Limited Dilemma

If I had been $1200 from the Limited to the Overland, I would have gotten the Overland. I love the indigo blue/Jeep brown interior. There is no wrong choice here.
