How much time or mileage is reasonable to expect between regens? We've gone 7K miles and I've yet to see any sort of message that it's doing a regen. How will I know? Does it say it on the dash?

I did get the Emissions update and I believe some have said they do a forced regen during that process, but still, I had gone 7K miles before that was done and never saw anything.

If you do a lot of highway driving, you may never see it, as the exhaust system will reach a temperature where it will regen as needed. You only get the message when a regen is required (when the filter is almost full). This happens if you do a lot of short trips where the exhaust system does not get up to full temperature.

For the record, what you'll see, in sequence, for a required regen:
* Exhaust Filter Nearing Full. Safely Drive at Highway Speed to Remedy.
* Exhaust System Regeneration in Process. Continue Driving.
* Exhaust System Regeneration Complete

Thanks. Yes, due to what I've read on the forums, I am making an effort to get long highway trips on the Jeep. And, when it's not interstate miles, I'm still using it for longer trips where the speed limit averages at least 45. My daily driver is a Mazda 3 that is happy doing the short commutes and errands.

Since the emissions update, twice after leaving the highway after crusing at 60+ for hours, after stopping for a fill up, the regen message came up. I have always let the turbo cool down before turning the engine off but the stock regen messages pop up with no reason. This doesn't make any sense to me.
