First day I drove it. It had 14 miles delivered to the dealership, they drove it a few mile to fill it up with fuel so it totaled 17 miles when I got it.

the kids love it. They are already asking for steps (thinking the RSE auto steps), and their mom says it looks funny with regular tires on it. Looks like a lift and tires are in order soon.

Thank you! this is my 3rd Jeep, and will not be the last. Went slightly out of order. Black 13 JKU Rubicon, Beige 93 YJ Sahara, and this White 20 JLUR Diesel!

I've had some parts for months already. A tazer mini, and some diff covers from Ballistic fabrication. Had the Diff powder coated black, and I'm thinking of painting the skulls white. I have to admit, the Tazer has been a little difficult for me to figure out. I ended up making some notes in my phone for the "shortcuts" to things like Line lock and Lightshows. Haven't gotten all the features to work properly yet, just some of them. I'm wondering if its the fact that it's a Diesel, or maybe it's this guy's learning curve! Sent a technical support email for a little help, this morning.

@ 210 miles on the odo, I heard a “snap”. A few mins later:

It happened on the way home from work this morning. It’s the second rock I heard hitting the windshield. I have a feeling this is going to grow horizontally, and be very obnoxious.

Damn!!!!!! I had a rock hit mine also but it chipped the windshield and I called safelite before it grew. Now I really stay back from other vehicles ..specially trucks I get out of the way.

You will enjoy it soon, and with a rare color! I bet there are only like 10 of that color produced in the Diesel! Id be interest in seeing the final production numbers for the 2020 diesel.

I shouldn't have been surprised about this windshield, people have been complaining about it since the first few JLs rolled off the line. I'm looking into the replacement windshield the Litebrite used. They said its aftermarket and more resistant to cracks. With this stock windshield, it seems that highway driving will result in cracks...

Still dealing with windshield issues... this time, over spray. I can’t see in the rain, and the wipers sound like they are wiping over gravel! I’m knocking it out with a clay bar. Lucky for me, the over spray is white, the same color as the Jeep!

Wow, I thought being on my second windshield in the first 5,500 miles was bad.
