  1. First real world diesel rubicon mpg test

    8.5 quarts vs 5. About 10K miles, or basically every oil change.
  2. EcoDiesel Rebuild

    They made it illegal to tamper with any emissions equipment period. Doesn't matter if it's a truck, or a diesel generator that never sees the road. What isn't clear is how far that extends and to what parts outside of ECU tuning, DPF and EGRs. One could argue that even increasing injector or...
  3. JL diesel lift kit?

    There is lots of variability due to engine options, top choice, trim and tow packages. JK was the same way and I think there was about 8 different spring sets. They tried to to figure out what was what on one of the Jk forums, but it almost seemed like whatever showed up at the factory that day...
  4. 31 mpg on the highway

    It's around a 70% increase vs my 3.8 JK and that's if I get 18 mpg, which is not often as I'm normally in the 17s. Talk about a serious improvement. I can't wait to place my order.
  5. List of Chrysler MS-12991 Engine Oil for the 3.0 EcoDiesel Jeep Wrangler

    It looks like the only difference with the MS-12991 rating is that it is low ash which is designed to help with DPF issues. Regardless of what oil you use I would just change it earlier than recommended.
  6. City With Highest Concentration of Wranglers?

    Although not a city, I feel like the outer banks in NC would give any place a run for it's money. Every year I go down there and I feel like my wrist is going to fall off driving down NC12.
  7. Fiat Diesel, lol don't do it.

    No doubt it's expensive, but it doesn't cost millions and PPEI, which was one of the most popular ecodiesel tuners is already doing it. "It can take anywhere from two months to a year to certify a product, but when it passes and receives a CARB E.O. number, we know that tune is approved for...
  8. Official EPA Fuel Economy For 2020 Jeep Wrangler Ecodiesel: 22/29/25 MPG

    Most likely if you ever plan on selling it. I was never ever going to sell my JK (lifetime powertrain warranty), but then the diesel came I guess things change. But as of now, once I move up to a Diesel JL I have no plans on ever selling it.
  9. Official EPA Fuel Economy For 2020 Jeep Wrangler Ecodiesel: 22/29/25 MPG

    As someone with a 09 and a 3.8 it makes a lot more sense for me. I get around 14-15 city and 17-18 on the highway. This basically equates to a $750-$850 savings in fuel per year based on the 18K miles I drive each year and an extra 100+ miles per tank (less time at the pump). Regardless, I could...
  10. Got to drive a 3.0L pre-release test mule today

    I think it's been stated that the engine is only about 100 pounds heavier, the rest is all the emissions stuff behind the front axle.
  11. Video of 3.0 doing a burnout

    I will echo that sentiment. I have driven everything from a Lamborghini Huracan to Honda Civic's and the Jeep Wrangler (all years) is the most fun I ever had in a slow vehicle.
  12. 3.0L Diesel Dyno

    The motor is detuned by 40tq compared to it's RAM 1500 counterpart.
  13. 4WD in reverse different?

    What tires do you have? They're probably direction specific.
  14. Will there ever be a 5-6 piece hardtop?

    It would also be a pain to store that many panels in the Jeep and go anywhere away from home.
  15. Tazer JL & AutoPark delete

    Especially on a vehicle they know will be modded more than any other vehicle they sell. If it's not a federal mandate why even bother and even then, it should be the least of their worries. I guess after the whole fiasco with people getting run over with Grand Cherokees their lawyers and bean...
  16. Start of 3.0 Production

    Doesn't appear that anything is starting until EPA certification happens. Until that there is no point in even looking.
  17. Just Paid My Deposit!

    They have been great to work with so far on my end as well and will most likely be locking in my order this week with a deposit. No dealer in my area has come close and they were even pissed that I was able to even get an offer that good.
  18. Mopar hardtop headliner

    The heater in these are insane since it needs to provide adequate heat for Jeeps with soft tops. It has a bigger impact in the summer since the top gets blazing hot and traps lots of heat up top and the AC needs to work harder. I often sprayed my jeep with off with water to cool the hardtop off...
  19. Dealer wants $660 to change differential fluid

    Ain't that the truth. I had a dealer change my diff fluid and the "tech" didn't put the plug in all the way. I drove 100 miles away and saw smoke billowing out behind my Jeep and pulled over to take a look and found diff fluid all over the back of my Jeep in a fine mist. I looked under and it...
  20. Rough draft: Cost analysis of Diesel Wrangler

    I find it so weird everyone wants to rationalize the cost, but they don't have any issues with people dropping $15-20K on Hemi swaps. But god forbid someone buy a diesel because they want one.
