Again, I ask specifically. Do you or have you ever owned a 3.0 diesel in a gladiator or JL? Simple yes or no would suffice.
But again the emission systems are the same for every vehicle. Thanks to the government and the epa

But since you have been dealing with the emission BS has long as I have, you know that people have had this problem
I sure do and it can be frustrating, but we also don’t throw out the baby with the bath water. It’s a risk/reward type of thing. The vast majority don’t have issues but some do. We all take that chance.

Yeah. I have never had it happen to me only because friends of mine had. And they were told about the screen and started telling everyone that they knew. So after that I have never let it get below half a tank. And there's a lot that have no experience with a diesel engine and the emission so I try and give them a heads up

I am sure the system is the same between both ram and Jeep, my two problems were the def sensor then the def pump. The engine was great. I have driven both in the JT, I didn’t hate the 3.6 too much and a regear can help.
I would do the 3.0 but my experience it’s always, def, then the special oil, fuel filter, diesel additive, regen, short drives, long drives. It took until after 20k miles before it stopped drinking def.

never had a derate problem in the ram, but reading about them in the JT would suck.

I try to talk myself out of the diesel, but I sure do love the diesel. :)

Kinda like trying to stop an orgasm. Just didn’t happen.
 
Yeah. I have never had it happen to me....

I think you should have started off with this from the beginning.

Anyhoo. OP. I am very happy with the diesel. I don’t keep the def topped off or worry about any of this other nonsense. Enjoy your new truck or whatever you choose.

I am currently in a Mojave (all stock) an I have to say I love the option of the box for hauling gear . It has the 3.6 and I find the power good , but the fuel mileage is atrocious. It is currently running 19L per 100 km . (Not sure what the conversion is for MPG) but my Lifted JK is at 14L per 100km.
but it rides nice and is comfortable.
Other then my kids having named it Trans, I like it.

But yet he does agree that he knows people that it happened to. But good luck with yours

One thing to keep in mind with the diesel / DEF idling for long periods is the enemy they need to run under load and boost to generate heat to keep the exhaust filter clean.
 
I have a JKU and added a JT 3.0l. Love it so far. 23k miles in a year with no problems, great mpgs and love all the torque, I purposely waited for the 3.0 to come out, got the first one to land in northern NV.

Going to look at gas Glad today. I don’t think I will go diesel after seeing a lightly optioned rubi diesel payload of 950. My family and a trailer would bust that.
