I just joined the forum, This is my first Jeep other than my Willys. I have had it a week and love it. Lift kit is ordered but I put the wheels and tires on because I did not want to wait. Great Jeep so far.
Here is the engine bay, there is not a lot of room left but I am fine with that. I bought the extended warranty so working in there is not my problem, LOL. The power is great. I used the Tazer to adjust tire size and it hold 8th gear with no issue with the bigger tires. Fuel economy right now is about 26 mpg but I only have 600 miles on it. Time will tell on reliability, I own a crane sales and service shop and we work on Diesels every day so I understand the emission system very well.Very nice!
Post some pics of the engine bay and any differences with the diesel option.
Jeep is filling sold orders first before dealer stock. I have not seen one out there but there may be canceled orders around if you look really hard. Its been taking over 3 months from order to delivery for a lot of people. Somehow I got lucky and it was 33 days from order to delivery. That's why I named it Lucky D .I could not find a single diesel anywhere in DFW. Gave up and bought a gas one.
I have found some people love it and others not so much. There seems to be no in between. I love the color, I ordered it just the way I wanted. I putt every major option on it except the Sky One Touch roof. All the moving plastic parts scare the crap out of me. I love what the Sky One Touch roof accomplishes but could bit you in the butt over time.I really like that color.
