    JL Diesel fully optioned at 60K? Wow

    Just saw some of the first reviews on the Diesel JL, as much as it sounds like a dream on a Wrangler, I think it's a bit on the high side and it will end up discontinuing itself...

    Ouch. IMO most of the new diesel engines are just too finicky. Too much bullshit management on them that doesn't need to be there. Wish they built diesels like they used to.

    $60,000 is outrageous for a Jeep. No wonder sales are down...can't imagine many of these flying off the lots. The $60,000 SUV segment is crowded with much better and more refined vehicles.

    Crazy expensive, hangs down super low, even with the smaller gas tank, the overall weight of the truck is heavier and it's utterly gutless off the line. Sure, it has a bit more range stock but I can guarantee you that it'll diminish quite a bit with bigger tires. I simply could not justify paying this kind of money for so little benefit just to have a diesel. For the money, I would get a RAM and be happy with real power, comfort and towing capacity.

    Agreed but replace ram with the updated L5P duramax in either the new Sierra or Chevy

    I will not own a car with a diesel engine. Since I drive a truck and have seen all the problems they have had since they have put the DPF on in 09 and now with the DEF

    Couldn't agree more with commercial chassis. Especially Navistar/International. Aside from having to carry around a jug of DEF and being robbed of their true power, from my experience (RAM's and Fords at work) personal vehicles seen to be much more reliable. Just make sure to use manufacturer's filters to prevent voiding the warranty.

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.
