Your experiences are hearsay not known facts that YOU have experienced. Do you really think you get all the facts from reading what someone else that very little or nothing about the issue writes. I work on these systems EVERYDAY and I am still learning but I do know crap when I read it.
I will not get into a pointless argument, far too much information out there that also negates "your experience" such that it is. Everyone here is free to believe whatever they choose including you.

How much?
No idea but an actuary looking at DPF and EGR reliability through 100k miles is not going to tell their employer to offer coverage for said parts for much less than the cost of replacement of major parts in either system.

It just came out. Are you looking for a 25 mile review?
5500 miles on mine. Long time jeep owner, incl 2020 Gladiator. As soon as Gladiator comes with diesel, Ill have one. These things are BEAST. Sweet spot for mine on Maximizing mpg- 76 mph w active cruise = 28mpg - 23-24 in city. Love the diesel. Have had 6 Ecodiesel rams with their share of problems, but nothing that ruined my life. They always took care of me. Jeep diesel well worth the money.

Not buying a Jeep got fuel efficiency but knowing it gets 28 at 76 on stock wheels is impressive.

Stay tuned- getting 37's and 3.5 lift next week. I'll report back on economy drop. I'm guessing It's gonna get murdered. We will see!

Still waiting on computer reset to calculate fuel economy. It’s off with the 37 in tires but reset should be avail soon. Drives great, no lag or loss of power with diesel. Plenty of torque to get rolling. Love it!

Blue looks a lot better with the red wheels than I pictured it in my head
