The Ram has a MUCH larger engine bay, and even still you can just barely see the turbo. I've done a lot of work including engine replacements, installing headers on Camaros where there is NO space to work, etc. When I look at what it would take to replace a turbo on this Gen 3 EcoDiesel, I have nightmares. I cannot imagine that the Wrangler would be easier. In fact, probably harder. Removing the body bolts and lifting the body off the frame is extremely common on diesel pickups, so it wouldn't surprise me to see them do that on the Wrangler as well.

So now we've seen:

EGR failures
CAC hose failures
Timing cover failures
At least 2 blown engines
Turbo replacement?

On an engine that's been on the market for less than 12 months.....

I already am thinking about what I'm going to replace mine with once I reach the end of bumper to bumper warranty. There are too many parts that are not considered "powertrain" on these.
