  1. Offroad diesel

    I guess you didn't go to and read the link I posted. It definitely answers the original question. I for one wouldn't use it to save a few dollars and hope I don't get caught.
  2. Offroad diesel

    I don't care what you do! But if you think anyone would buy a diesel jeep and never license it or drive it on a road you would be laughed at. No one talked about "construction" equipment being driven on the road it was about using off-road diesel in a jeep that clearly was registered. You can...
  3. Offroad diesel

    I find this discussion interesting. Dyed for is not for on-road vehicles. Not telling you what to do, but just because you may take your Jeep off-road doesn’t necessarily qualify it to use dyed fuel. Here is a link about Dyed fuel...
  4. Offroad diesel

    It is simply dye put in the diesel. That is how the IRS and states track for taxes. It is called the “Dyed Fuel” program.
  5. Post Your 3.0 Pics

    Finally installed the front AEV bumper. AEV didn’t disappoint with crappy directions, poor pictures and not to mention missing bolts! My remote reservoir shocks don’t mount back up, so I guess I will need to fab something up!
  6. Snorkels for the EcoDiesel

    Yeah, I’m not holding my breath!
  7. (overly?) dark oil

    I saw somewhere in the forums where someone sent their oil in for analysis when they changed it at 10,000. Their oil was still within specs. Todays synthetic oils are NOT like the oil when I was a kid. Changing it early doesn't buy you anything except spending money on more oil and oil...
  8. 3.0 won’t crank

    I get all kinds of looks at the diesel pump at the local truck stop, but when I pull up and put DPF in they get really confused. I have had a few tell me “you know these are diesel pumps right?” And I say yep, it is cheaper than 91 octane!” Then drive away!
  9. 3.0 won’t crank

    Not sure, could have been some condensation. Once I got it running it was fine. I did run into a guy that had some diesel additive and put it in my fuel tank. He was driving a Chevy dually and after he asked if I was sure I had a diesel he offered it to me.
  10. 3.0 won’t crank

    I had the same issue! Mine did crank and started for a couple of seconds. I raised the hood let the sun warm it up. Got an indication I had water in my fuel filter. When it started I drove around a bit and moved one of my benz’s outside and the Jeep in. All is good now. I do NOT have the...
  11. Spacer Lift or 2.5" Rock Krawler Lift

    Well, I ordered the 2.5s because I wanted the ability to adjust on and off road. the 2.0s were just a little rougher for my wife. I was ok with them, but the shop put the 2.0s on in error. The 2.5s were $2k more, but I do a lot of off roaring. nothing wrong with the 2.0s had them for about...
  12. Spacer Lift or 2.5" Rock Krawler Lift

    I installed the RK 2.5 lift. They couldn't get the springs so the shop went with the AEV diesel shocks. I asked if they were diesel specific, they said yes. Later I found out that was a lie. However, I also installed AEV Borah Wheels with BFG KM3 37's and Fox 2.5 remote Reservoir adjustable...
  13. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Yep, when you go to mount them the bolts got in at a slight angle and doesn’t fit as you are instructed to drill them. When you go to mount them you will immediately see. They are on their website. I did the trimming for mine today and was able to make it work easily enough without pulling...
  14. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    I am not sure I understand what you are saying about the flares and guards. You recommend not drilling at 90 degree angle and reaming the holes to make things easier. Is my understanding correct? Yep, when you go to mount them the bolts got in at a slight angle and doesn’t fit as you are...

  18. AEV JLU Wrangler Build [SEMA 2019]

    Installed mine a month ago. It took 2 of use a total of 9 hours to install it...that included time to put it on take it off, modify it to fit. Put it on, strip 2 bolts, retread the bolts and then get it all in. Definitely had to take the Right Rear tail light out to get the Carrier arm on...
  19. % of Diesels with major problems?

    You don't really specify what "big engine issues" are so this is hard to answer. I will tell you I am not aware of any manor issues with any of the Diesels at this point...others might have a different feeling, but without know what the definition of "big engine issues" means to you it is very...
