No one has gotten a diesel yet. I have been in D status 3 times, the 2nd time I was in D for 13 days. This time 23 days and counting. I don't think we will see any of them before the 3rd week in Jan. We will see. they will be here before we know it. just praying it isn't in July!

Congrats! How long did that criswell sticker last before you ripped it off?

Just reading this thread, can you diesel owners talk about reliability thus far? Any issues at all with your G3 3.0? Thinking of pulling the trigger on that engine. Thanks.

Whats your current odometer?
What MPGs are you seeing with stock or mods?
Any issues of real concern (relating to everyone's concern of this engine)?

12,000 miles so far. 1 oil change. It burns 1 gallon of DEF per thousand miles on average (twice as fast as jeep says, but it’s cheap so who cares). I’m also on 37” BFG mud terrains and 2.5” AEV lift with a roof rack and roof top tent always attached. Averaging 22-23mpg. Plenty of power from the engine, no need to regear. I love it all. Only issue so far was a CEL relating to fuel pump. Turns out if you get mud in the electrical connectors underneath they’ll hiccup... bad design as mud is a risk for jeepers lol. Also the diesel does great at altitude, much better than a gas engine would. I’ve been up to 13k ft in Colorado a few times and no power drop noticed. Hope this helps; good luck.

3,100 current odometer
never less than 24 MPG, high was 28
No issues other than a "big Brother" email stating my charging system had a problem. Turned out the problem was a glitch with "big Brother" not my rig. There was no repair to do and the charging system is fine.

Pull the trigger. This power plant is awesome.

I only have 1200 miles on mine so far, so can only say that it is RAD. 24 mpg in the city (not much highway so far). I love it!!!

9300 miles, about 1100 of which have been off pavement. All on 37s, beadlocks, 2.75” lift, about 250lbs of mods and daily driven gear. Averaging 23-24mpg using opti-lube xpd fuel additive. Zero mechanical or electrical issues so far, though I spent three hours wrapping every electrical connector I could reach with silicone tape and have everything underneath sprayed with cerakote so its 100+ water crossings might not reflect OEM tolerance of such use. The only thing I don’t like about it is the oil dipstick absolutely refuses to give a consistent read and the Canadians haven’t come out with an ECU tune yet.

10k on mine, stock suspension and tires. 22-23 mpg, running 75 on freeways in Houston. I have a heavy foot....:). Pulls our 3000 lb boat just fine. Only offroad its seen so far is deep sand on the beach a few times.
I traded in my F350 w/ powerstroke for it since I didn't need that much truck anymore.
I did the fuse panel fix as soon as I got it home, 1/2 were unseated. No other issues at all. Would definitely buy again.
