    Too expensive at purchase and too expensive to maintain. Shame.

    I’d rather spend that kind of money on a Tahoe our Yukon. Or just bite the bullet and go Escalade or Range Rover. 60k for a JL is nuts.

    Given that the JLs now have the 8 speed transmission, would a diesel really be that attractive anyway? Seems to me the new transmissions with the 3.6L pentastars have ample torque even with large tires.

Just make sure to use manufacturer's filters to prevent voiding the warranty.

    I agree about the 1 ton pickups. I Wish I still had this truck and still pulling these 20170123_133653.jpg

    I’m curious what a quick aftermarket tune can do for the engine, that would be a big part of the diesels value. That and the elimination of the exhaust bs. Still pricey.

    You can eliminate the exhaust bs but it will void the warranty

    How would you do that? I thought modern diesels have exhaust temp, NOx, and soot sensors in the emission train that provided critical feedback to the ECM, without which the engine would not run?

    If it is possible, removing the emissions system would also make the vehicle fail emissions inspections in the US and EU.

    Look at all the Diesel engines on the market. There’s a kit for everything. And move to a state that has bigger problems to worry about then inspections.

    It can be deleted if you have access to a computer and the program to hook up to the ECM

    And with out all of the emissions on the diesel engines you can get better fuel mileage and it will run cooler

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.
