No Catalyst problems, no DEF system problems, no MAP and EGR soot issues, no blown engines (this is a bummer, sorry to you guys dealing with this blown engine) etc. I have 36,000 miles on my engine, have had 2 issues with the DEF system that were false alarms (transients) that put me into the 200 mile to no start BS. One time was at least 500 miles from a Jeep dealer. I now travel with my scanner so I can delete codes and I also have a jump wire to emergency start it if the timer goes to zero. Crazy I have to do that for a 50K vehicle. It should be reliable. Also can't have GDE in my state. Hope to hear some good news out there.
    Just turned 20,000 in my '16 Tradesman EcoD 4WD, and clean sailing, maintenance-only use to date. More coming too. Nice truck, big friend, esp in the winter!

    ??? You mean the doors fell off, the frame collapsed, suspension sagged, engine quit etc?

    What do you mean by "fell apart"?

    About to turn 80k.
    2014 Outdoorsman
    Had the dreaded P20EE code and had the SCR replaced around 20k and had a EGT Probe go out around 40k only 2 problems I’ve had. T&K 60 tune and delete at 28k them GDE hot tuned around 35k. Averaged around 27 while deleted and 24-25 with hot tune. Looking to delete again soon and add off-road programming to my Hot tune.

    194,000 on a 2014 only the def tank replaced. I will say it has the best battery I have ever owned on a new truck I can't believe it the same one.

    Maybe I was a bit too literal, but it surely felt like it. Within about a week, all this happened

    -driver side window not working
    -driver side caliber seized (small fire, lots of smoke)
    -fuel tank leak
    -electronic throttle control message, limp mode
    -exhaust sensor replacement (or something to that effect, from the ETC error message)
    -check engine light

    It really felt like the truck was falling apart in front of my eyes.

    well lets see. I put about 5500 miles with absolutely no problems. Had to have the transmission replaced at about 5,600 miles.
