2020 Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon 2.2L TD - "Jacko" Punk'n Orange (Old - 2010 Jeep KK Cherokee)
Australian 2.2L TD - 13,000km (roughly 8000 miles) and averaging 10.5L/100km (~22,4mpg) with that. About 1/2 the mileage is tow our offroad trailer (1.2T)... bought in Aug20... Absolutely no issues that I haven't caused....

Just rolled over 50,000 miles. The 26th will be 10 months of wonderful ownership. Love the power and the fuel mileage. Have not had any issues thus far.

Wow. That's a lot of miles (I'm at a measly 3,500 after 6 months of ownership). Glad to hear that all is well. Encouraging.

Just rolled over 10k after 9 months of ownership. Two trips to Moab, two trips between SLC and Oregon, one trip between SLC, Vegas, Phoenix, Sedona, Lake Powell back to SLC. Zero diesel issues. Knock on wood.

7 months and 11500 miles so far I love the power and fuel economy currently at 30.2 mpg. Currently all stock but soon lift and 35’s so mileage out the door but shouldn’t be that bad.

5600 miles of mostly problem free miles on the JLURD since March 2020. Couple issues I can't blame on the diesel.
1) Already replaced 1 windshield (I know welcome to Wrangler JL).
2) I never really did better than 26 mpg on mostly highway driving, used more DEF than I was expecting.
3) This is my first modern jeep, so I was expecting better highway manors. Above 70 really required active participation with both hands.
4) It had some dashboard quirks that I somewhat chalk up to the Tazer JL but I'm not sure.

Overall I've really enjoyed the diesel, but yesterday I bailed on it when someone offered me several thousand more than I paid. Great experience, didn't cost me anything to own it for over a year...keeping my options open on what's next. Bronco looks interesting maybe? Until then, I'll drive the old Jeep on the trails.

How does "who has the most miles" translate to posts like "just hit 300?"
I think this just kind of turned into "Status of your Diesel Wrangler", cause no one is going to beat

I know I don't. I just bought mine a couple of weeks ago. But I just got back from a 1,200 mile vacation road trip to Ouray, CO. So I'm sitting over 1,400 already.
How long did it take to get yours? My first one was about 70 days. Don't think I'll buy another diesel, even though I loved it, maybe a Rubicon with a manual trans....Dealership recommended I take the deal to sell, they would be happy to order me another one for less.

I had similar setup. Nice on flipping it. Too much invested in mine for that to happen now.
14K miles in 6 months...no issues other than the ditto above
