Too bad they are too far, if they were close enough you could have offer to give them yours for fitment in exchange for a free kit maybe.

Not to far from me. I am actually From NorCal and most of my family is in the Sacramento area not to far from where they are

HiToolaide did you order the diesel 3.0 specific Tazer?

River city offroad offers the Tazer for less with coupon JLWF but they don’t have the 3.0 option. I asked them and they replied the Tazer wasn’t motor specific. But if it wasn’t motor specific; why have all the motor options when purchasing it?
I bought mine Tazer JL Mini from Z Automotive and they did ask which model and engine I had...having said that, I am not sure they are different.

So, I think if you look at the article above you might find they are for all versions of the JL. It doesn't make modifications to the engine as far as I know.

it’s official...my dealership was forced to shut down and currently closed until May 15. This sucks!!!! My Jeep can arrive any day now
May 15 ?? That is pretty far out, most people are talking about businesses being closed for a couple weeks or towards the end of April, may 15th is almost 2 months, do they plan to still be there to inbound the vehicles being delivered to them ? I been trying to figure out the answer to that question, my guess is that they dont want vehicles on their books since they cant sell any while closed and the sales will be miserable when everyone goes back to work as most people will be behind on their bills and the last thing they are thinking about is upgrading to a new car

I was told there is no difference between the diesel and gas versions. I ordered mine through Z Automotive directly with the warranty, and they do give the option of choosing the engine, though it’s for their records and doesn’t matter for installation. Also, the tech support will help no matter where you buy it from.

I got the mini, and it works great. I love the unlocked locker function for 2wd and 4hi. Also love the line lock. Also kills all the nanny crap for doing donuts...

I thought you were in san Diego, if you are close to them I would offer to leave the rig with them, you can probably get a nice deal out of it, but I know parting with the Jeep is not what is on your mind after waiting for it for so damn long, BTW I was happy to see you got yours finally, I have been stuck in "I" purgatory for 3 weeks and as usual no one can say tell me why, the kids are excited about the car as it will be our first Jeep as well, but I do not look forward to ever buying something from FCA, their level of communication is just horrible, they dont seem to talk to one and another and I am beggining to think Jeff is just full of automated answers for evertyhing, if he just picked up the phone and call the other departments he would be able to share better information, but instead he just reads what is in his computer screen, his "expedited shipping" of your rig was a joke.

I have the mini as well, but when I almost purchased the gladiator, I bought one for the 3.6L motor called them and they said I should do a return for the 3.0 option. That said, I would err on the side of caution and get the 3.0 specific version.

Side note, I found that the RPM increase for winching does not work and have been in contact with Z automotive about it. He said that I was one of the early adopters (no sh*t) and that he hadn't heard of issues but was curious if everything else had worked. He didnt instill confidence that everything would work, which might lend credence to the argument that the 3.0 version is no different than the 3.6 version.

i ordered from there. The item said 2.2l diesel I think. I sent them an email telling them it was wrong last week. I’ve already received mine but don’t have my Jeep yet to confirm it works.

all of these definitive closure dates are ridiculous. I don’t know why government and businesses aren’t saying until further notice. I anticipate big changes on these initiatives in the next 2 weeks at most.
