Picked my Rubicon up today and drove back 7 hours.

It had 11 miles on it at time of pick up.

Love it! The steering was incredibly tight and was not expecting it based on non diesel feedback. Drove better than my crew cab 1500 and the power is just right. Not over the top but the amount it should have.

DEF was full when I drove off lot and you can see how much was used for the ride today. See pic
Gas mileage was better than I was expecting considering I did 85 mph for a 10th of it plus passing and averaging close 70 with wind most all the way. See pic. I think 30-32mpg can be achieved in a rubicon going 55mph but 60mph+ it goes down quickly. 70mph was closer to 25mpg.
Everything was great (tire pressure at 37) except for the drivers side fender liner was flapping and rubbed the tire a lot. I think some one else mentioned this happening too with a diesel. Liners look like they freehand cut them at plant. See pic

awsome day and even better ride. Couldn’t believe how well it drove and suspension surprised me with comfort.

Back from picking up the Jeep from the dealership. It came with Falkens'. I was expecting BFG KO2's. Anyone else end up with the Falkens?

Moved you to "Delivered!" I had requested OWL Off-Road-Tires which is the BFG KO2s.

Our Jeep also came with these parts and the salesman had no clue what they are for.

Window sticker just posted. Jeff emailed me saying “I have reached out to the logistics team who transport our vehicles to have your order marked for prioritized delivery.”

Here is tonight's spreadsheet.
Talked to the salesmen at the selling dealer today and asked them to check the status of my order. He called me back and said it shipped 3/10/20. They show it on a train heading to Jacksonville FL. And at there between 4/2 and 4/5. That will be 5 - 6 weeks from order to delivery. Would have never thought it would be that fast.

Liner issue definitely isn’t across the board but should be an easy fix. Your DEF might have said full but almost certainly wasn’t. The folks who “fill” the tank by hand at dealers are often hesitant to actually fill them for fear of overfilling. There are folks on here with plenty more miles than you put on with the gauge still pegged at full. Congrats on the new rig!

It arrived at the dealership with 5 miles on it.
It’ll be interesting to see if any of the latest production run are set loose with that few miles now that Jeep is becoming aware of more than one-off EGR issues. I’d also love to know what the extra 40 miles of testing looks like in the rigs which get pulled out for added QC.

I also got the Falken tires on mine. I actually like the look of the Falken tires over the BFG. I have 2200 miles on mine so far and haven't had any issues.

That is awesome...you hit it just right! Glad you are getting you ride in the next couple of weeks...I think you will hold the record of quickest delivery. Which means, FCA is finally producing these rigs like the other Jeeps!

We aren't tracking you on our spreadsheet, if you want to be included I
would need your Vehicle Build Sheet, your purchase date, Model, Color
and Options. Thanks!

Also, if you look at the previous tracking spreadsheets (should be one
every day) you will find several tabs that are helpful. There is one on
"Tracking Your Build" and "Vin Codes"
