I'm not 100%, but I believe some late 14s got them and all 15s are getting the US made transmissions. A Vin or window sticker check will show origin country.

I'm not sure on rotors, I always went wholesale OEM. That was through Mopar super center and I don't think they are around anymore.

FYI, I added a thread in the troubleshooting forum for my 2014 SRT. I will be needing a replacement transmission at 2700 miles to repair leaking cooling line fittings. More to come on that one.

I got the word today that my dealership submitted an order to replace my zf hp870 with a new 8-70 out of the new US factory. I've had my Jeep in three times since about 250 miles for fluid leaks. At...

Nice plate, I wonder if the active noise cancelation made the valves redundant. At least for the MDS drone.

Thanks all, it was a little nerve racking to hear them talking about having to replace the transmission if they couldn't stop the leak. Just glad it was an easy fix.
