Update been out here killing it in our Ecodiesel Moab was epic check out our build @buttercup_ecodiesel and on YouTube at Buttercup Ecodiesel new axles are next and I was going to order the JT diesel but I’ll be 100k into this one soon.
well congrats on the skid I’ll be headed back after my long arm is completed for more. so the welding I did was the nut that are attached to the frame rail are strange looks like a press in nut you will see it if you look in the frame at them but mine popped out so I just tacked it in place so...
I'm working with a couple tuners in Canada looking like late summer or 4th quarter i dont need a ton of power but with 20 years in the diesel industry i want all the emissions off of our jeep it will spend most of its life off road im in a non emissions county at the moment and if tuned properly...
Oh I know I’m actually a diesel mechanic I’ve built trucks for off road to the drag strip I mainly did it because it was so low I’m fixing to do it again at 5000k miles then I’ll see how long it can go without having to add oil.
Yeah I’m a diesel guy I wish it was a bit louder and yeah it spins the 38s no problem I’m fixing to cut all the factory brackets off the frame and axles in preparation for a Rock Krawler high clearance long arm kit 4 link front 3 link rear I can’t wait.
The oil is a Valvoline 5-40 full synthetic euro. And I changed it because when I checked it the oil was just touching the dip stick and black as night I know that the black is normal but for me I’m not waiting 10k miles for the first oil change and as low as it was I’m glad I didn’t wait.
It does come with housing it is reusable but the filter is not the same as the gen 2 I checked the only way currently to get it is with the housing but as time goes I’m certain it will change and we will be able to just get the filter.
