If i had to guess, it was Chapman with all of those add-ons.I ordered mine today as well - JLURD with a sticker just north of 60K. Gulp.
This was a first for me: I actually didn't order from the dealer with the best deal. The dealer that I passed up is actually closer to my home, but I didn't like their old school sales tactics. I'm at the point in my life where price is important, but earning my respect is more important. I got 5% under invoice and I'm quite satisfied.
I've said it previously, the last percentage point of discount often comes with an exponentially greater amount of stress and shenanigans. The thing that turned me off was the mandate of a slew of worthless dealer add-ons totaling $1,295. They ultimately backed off on the requirement, but by that time their credibility was damaged. Ironically, this was a Costco dealership.
Warm up which means idle but don't idle for prolonged periods? So what is prolonged and I though diesel engines were made to idle?Cool. I haven't mapped out my trip yet since it's hard to know when I might see delivery. But I do anticipate several low mileage, moderate speed days exploring some backroads before really sprinting for home. There's not any break-in period specified, but like you I err on the side of caution usually. Especially with an expensive new toy!
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS —
The diesel engine does not require a break-in period due to its construction. Normal operation is allowed, providing the following recommen- dations are followed:
- Warm up the engine before placing it under load.
- Do not operate the engine at idle for prolonged periods.
- Use the appropriate transmission gear to prevent engine lugging.
- Observe vehicle oil pressure and tempera- ture indicators.
- Check the coolant and oil levels frequently.
- Vary throttle position at highway speeds when carrying or towing significant weight.
These are during the "break in period". Most agree that during the early life hours on an engine constant rpm for prolonged periods is not a good idea. This is why you'll see recommendations to not use cruise control for the first 500-1000 miles, so that you get a more varied rpm.Warm up which means idle but don't idle for prolonged periods?

A long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away) long haul diesel truck drivers would leave their diesels runing at idle, especially in cold weather. The reasons given for doing so were:Warm up which means idle but don't idle for prolonged periods? So what is prolonged and I though diesel engines were made to idle?
