Love this forum...thanks to all who leave great info. I've been following the AEM mess here and am lucky to have resisted the $3K temptation. For background, we're retired and the primary use of our 2014 JGC Ecodiesel is towing a 5000 lb travel trailer on (usually) long trips, 2-3 months and 12K miles with other higher-mileage trips sans trailer. Currently have about 110K miles and it runs great, 30+ mpg on trips (about 14 mpg towing). We just bought an eGolf so that's dropped the around-town (short trip) use of the Jeep by a lot. Sounds like this is a very good thing for DPF life and engine life in general.

My question is whether anyone has gotten the AEM done for the first time since the new-and-improved version was announced with the January 2020 letter, and what your experience has been.

Thanks!

Do not under any circumstances install the AEM, especially if you tow. It's a complete disaster and FCA should be sued AGAIN for creating this abortion. If i could give back the $3K and get my old jeep back i would do it in a heartbeat and i don't think I'm alone on that sentiment. You will lose low RPM power, at least 3-4 MPG and your engine light will become a permanent fixture on your dash. Other than a measly $3000 there is ZERO benefit to installing this. They dangle an extended warranty for all the components of the SCR system with the AEM install, but in my opinion that's bogus. These items should have ben designed for a long life to begin with and if you need to replace a pricy item (Particulate Filter...$2K-$3K i hear) that is not covered by the emission warranty it would be far cheaper to just delete the entire system and end up with a better running vehicle. Clearly I'm not jaded at all on this topic. ;)

I keep asking my local dealer about the new and improved AEM update but they have yet to receive anything from FCA.

I didn't do it as my EcoDiesel is heavily modified and runs great. To reinstall all I deleted would cost much more than the $3K they were offering and then it would run poorly after the AEM install. But, you choice/decision as this is stll America and we have choices.
