    Is the ecodiesel or turbo engine worth waiting for??

    I hear there has been many issues with the ecodiesel and that itís not reliable. I wonít the torque of the diesel but not at the cost of reliability.

    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?

    Wish a V8 would be an option but since it wonít be Iíll most likely roll the dice on a diesel. Iím not a fan of the pentastar.

    Iíve driven the turbo and while I thought it was good, I canít bring myself to go to a smaller displacement. Iíll most likely upgrade mine to a V8 someday, so I went with the Pentastar. Not a fan of the diesel option just because of the emissions.

    Interesting thought on this - in some states (including CO) you can't legally go from diesel to gas or vice versa and stay street legal. I was opting to wait on a diesel option, but now that I discovered that fact, I may just get the gas and plan to upgrade at some point or another.

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.
