    I read the tow rating on the Diesel is lower than with th V6, I think that is weird considering the Diesel has more torque.

    Iím going to at least wait and see how it sounds closer to the 3.0s launch. Since I hear itís going back in the 1500 and the jlu I canít see them shooting themselves in the foot and relaunching something with issues on multiple platforms

    IMO Iíd wait until the diesel has been out for a year and people have real world reviews with some good miles on them. Iíd rather wait a couple years and make sure Iím getting the one that I really want instead of jumping in and then realizing a year down the road I want the other. Also, maybe the markup on these things will have come down by then.

    Honestly I wouldnít be concerned about the motor in the JL. It isnít brand new tech. Theyíve had that engine/tranny combo for years now

    Wait a minute. That sure sounds like a sales pitch from a car dealer.

    I havenít heard much about the turbo.

    I see Eddieís not waiting so maybe Iím over thinking things and should go with whatís available now?

    My buddy is a service manager at a local Dodge/Jeep dealership and said the exact same thing as your hearing. He said he was not impressed with anything about it.

    I too have heard this and was a deciding factor not to wait. Besides, Iím sure in a few years weíll be pulling the 3.6 and dropping in a Hemi like all the cool kids. Unless the JL/JT LS swap is more streamlined by then.

    Itís funny Iíve heard the same thing too, but I sold countless EcoDiesels and not once did I ever have a customer coming into our service department for anything other than regular maintenance. In fact I only ever recall one ever being in the shop for anything other then regular maintenance and it was because the dudes wife put gasoline instead of diesel in it.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
