But we don't have to warm our blocks and don't have cold start problems! lol Oh, and I can ride my Harley year round...may have to ad leather...but snow and ice is a rarity. :clap:
My block will be plenty warm in my garage lol. Riding a motorcycle year round with world class BBQ is pretty mint, but I’ll trade the fishing, hunting, mountains, tax-freedom and not buying my basic human rights back from the state here 100 times out of 100. I think we can both be glad we don’t live in one of the far-left hellholes I used to live in though!

also got word from my dealer that I’ve moved from D status to C status. I asked him if this was a step back and he said “C status is in the right direction and this is positive movement”. My understanding is the exact opposite.
You are correct...that is definitely backwards movement. It’s also not unprecedented around here unfortunately. Certainly raises the likelihood that my engine/transmission order theory is correct though. They’re waiting on Italy and Germany.

Had a busy couple days... The jeep drives great and already has 200 miles on it. Was in Anaheim at sea level, and drove to the mountains with snow. The jeep climbed the mountain with no problems and sounded great doing it. No check engine lights or issues whatsoever. All of the details inside of the vehicle are top-notch, I have found zero flaws.

Spoke with my dealer today, according to their rep, it is in transit and should arrive in the next 2-3 days! What is interesting is that she mentioned (according to the rep) that the diesels are first shipped to some location where they receive additional inspections/approval before they are shipped to dealers. Not sure if I totally buy that, but at least it's on its way!

**UPDATE GOT CELESTE BACK**
They drilled a bigger hole in the vacuum that goes from the engine to the EGR. I'm driving it until Monday to see if the code pops back up but hopefully this is the fix!
Sweet!!!

I’d worry a bit about all the California folks moving there and the fact Austin has now changed tenting laws to turn the city into the next Portland or LA.

So I happened to stop by the dealer today... Cause I had not heard anything. Talked to my sales guy, first time since I did this all via e-mail and phone calls. He offered to run the report again. Last report showed it at the train depot on the 10th. Waiting... Waiting... Where the hell is he.... Low and behold he comes back with a set of keys and the owners manual. Guess it arrived on the lot late last night and nobody noticed the little sticker on the back. Still in shipping mode, needs inspection, detailing (someone was running it through mud puddles). Promised to be done before they close tomorrow!

Well then, congrats! So we have you, @SheddMan, @JLDIESEL, @Nihkole and @Tank the Jeep. Am I missing any delivered JLU 3.0s?
