Default Rumors possible heating issues while towing (ecodiesel)

So I wrote an email to greendiesel, wondering if they are planning to have tune available for the ecodiesel. I was curious my dad got one for is 08 grand cherokee. Anyways this is what he answered me.
Eric,i

We usually wait until products are out at least a year before releasing a
tune. We want to find out al the powertrain problem areas and validating a
tune in altitude, cold weather and hot trailer towing conditions takes some
considerable development time. I am hearing rumors the new truck will have
overheating issues pulling trailers up grades weighing more than 6000
pounds.

Thanks for your interest.

very interesting article. high temp is a bit alarming but in all fairness, the test was done towing a load that exceeded max capacity up a 7% grade to an elevation of 5000 ft. what was even more interesting is the fact it did all this while averaging almost 20mpg!!
