    I would, but it's not going to happen:

    Why not just use a VM V6 diesel with an eight speed? The engine does not fit. However, there are other diesel engines which might be possible — and we will discuss those later. The most likely V6, given Sergio Marchionne’s comments, is an upgraded 3.2 liter gasoline engine."

    Only fits with a sledgehammer to the firewall from what I have seen and been told. I unfortunately haven't done the install though.

    The thing is, they already make a diesel version of the JK, they just don't sell it in North America. I think a lot of that was due to the fact that the 2.8 L VM Motori turbodiesel straight-4 engine the diesel JKs have doesn't meet US emissions standards, but they've always claimed that they wouldn't get enough sales to justify making them for the North American market. That's a pretty flimsy line if you ask me, since they're making them anyway if they would have picked a diesel engine that could be sold worldwide they wouldn't have to worry as much for this particular market.

    I hope they fix that for the JL. I know I would have seriously considered getting a diesel JK if I could get one here.

    I would love a diesel jk, but would never buy the first year of them running the motor in it, they always have quirks and I would rather wait, but I gonna do a ls3 here in the next 3yrs

    They've been making diesels for some time now. Every other country has them

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
