    Cummins Turbo Diesel swapped 2012 JKU build

    Hi y'all, new to the forum! Just wanted to start a build thread for my build.

    I have a 2012 JKUR in Gecko. At 54,000 miles I had the Cummins 3.8L ISF Turbo Diesel swap completed by Bruiser Conversions. I love the swap. 275 hp/ 500 ft lbs of torque, and 30+ MPG. I also have a 6" Teraflex longarm suspension system and 37's with ATX Slabs.

    I have pretty much changed everything except the axles, I have been riding on 37's with the Diesel and stock Rubi 44's. Recently, it has come to my attention that my front tube is bent. So, this week, I finally ordered a Dynatrac ProRock 80 for the rear and a ProRock 60 for the front with ARB Air Lockers. The axles are currently being built and I should have them by Christmas. At this time, I am going to stay with my 37's but I am planning on 40's for sometime in the future.

    I also have many other little goodies but this is the bulk of my build. I will add a list of modifications below. Thanks for following my build and I hope to see y'all on the trail!

    6" Teraflex Longarm lift

    Why thank you! Yes I love the MPG, and the 500 ft lbs of torque at 1300 rpms doesn't stink either!

    Next time I go through Pensacola I will be stopping by for my complimentary test drive. That is a dream build for me. I gave up my Dodge Cummins truck for my wrangler and miss my diesel engine. Great build.

    That's an awesome engine swap. I'm so hoping Jeep builds a Diesel 4 door truck in 2018.

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.
