He will be in charge of CDJW donations received and responsible for making sure we have enough money for future events etc. He will also be in charge of any CDJW merchandise which will be available in the near future.
Thanks again Austin and good luck

Our hearts go out to Boston tonight. While we are glad that the person who contributed to the horror that unfolded this week has been captured – we take time to remember the people who have lost loved ones or had their lives changed so abruptly. Were with you Boston.
This video outlines how fundamentally simple the Jeep really is and how important it was in the theater of war for the United States.
Discus this video with us on the FORUMS
I am sure some of you know that today, Keith (VP of CDJW) and Heather are getting Married!

Please feel free to send Keith and Heather a congratulations message on the forum : HERE
Just the Facts:
AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Jeep Wrangler enthusiasts who have been asking for a diesel engine will get their wish in about two years.
The diesel will be available in the 2016 Wrangler, which will debut in 2015.
“The engine will be introduced toward the end of the model’s lifecycle to boost sales before they bring in the redesigned model,” according to an industry source who asked not to be identified.
At the same time, the 2016 Wrangler will be freshened, possibly with new interior trim and exterior colors.
Automakers sometimes introduce new technology or a new engine to create a buzz for a model that is nearing maturity. In particular, diesel engines are being added by automakers because of rising fuel prices and a government mandate for better fuel economy.
So most of you that have been on meetups with me know that this is my favorite trail. Matt showed it to Keith and I a few years back and its been on my favorite easy trail list since.

Keith pointed this article out to me the other day…
We automotive journalists aren’t always the right people to ask about whether a US-spec vehicle should or should not be offered with a diesel powertrain (hint: the answer is usually “YES”). But when it comes to the iconic, off-road-ready Jeep Wrangler, we aren’t the only ones who have been clamoring for an oil-burning engine behind that famous seven-slat grille. To that end, it appears there’s good news on the horizon, as Jeep CEO Mike Manley recently told Ward’s Auto that the “Wrangler is on the radar to get (a) diesel.”
“I’m confident that the Grand Cherokee will show just how large a demand there is for diesel, and I think what that will do is reinforce the need for us to target Wrangler as a vehicle that can take a diesel,” Manley told Ward’s. The most rugged of Jeeps is scheduled to get an overhaul around 2015-16, and the diesel powertrain will likely be introduced around that time.
