    I agree with you.

    Its illegal in California and CHP along with DOT has been conducting check points for this for a while now. For me, its to much to risk of a 10k fine, having you warranty void, and vehicle towed.

    There is really not a lot of difference electronically so itís not that big of a deal. 90% of off road vehicles here are diesel including JKUs and Iíve never seen someone stuck on the trail because of an emissions related problem or engine problem other than blown turbo hoses.

    You might get an argument from those of us with manual transmissions. Crawling with a clutch can be difficult - more torque at idle the better.

    But this will never come with a 6MT so that doesnt really matter.

    I can second the issue of having a clutch and wishing I had a little more torque.

    Part of my ambivalence is probably due to the constant stream of shitty diesels we've had in the states. Face it, other than the pickup diesels, we really haven't had a diesel in a domestic car or SUV worth a damn. Everything that wasn't a piece of shit was an import and they have never really been embraced here.

    My hats off to you manual guys that crawl with one. I love rowing gears but doing it in the rocks looks miserable.

    Edit: Hahaha, Weebz, I had you specifically in mind!

    Ecodiesel JL- Diesel Engine in Jeep JL Wrangler

    Canít wait this is what Iíve been waiting for since I bought my JKU.

    Only hope they can figure out the overheating problems some of the Ram truck guys are having. I have 2 co-workers that have the truck and both have overheating problems. Dealer hasnít been able to figure out whatís causing them to get hot.

    A lot of highways out west where the pentastar has to rev to the moon. That said, the new 8 speed makes up a lot of that.

    My big question is gonna be, how will this effect the need to regear?

    Also, the aftermarket is going to go crazy with tuners and performance mods for that engine. I wouldnít be surprised to see JLs and JTs running around with 600-700 foot pounds of torque

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.
