They changed the Gearing and Transmission gearing for the Diesel...they have the 3.7.3 gears.
And just to reiterate, the 3.73s on the JLUR 3.0 still yield significantly more wheel torque than the 4.10s on the 2.0 and 3.6. Basically getting the efficiency/range gains of 3.73 without paying the price at the wheel. Will be interesting to see how well it pairs with 37+” tires, but I doubt many folks this side of 40s are going to truly need a 4.10 or higher.

Why would they do that? Just curious as to the reasoning
I certainly don't know because I am not an FCA engineer, but my guess would be since they have lots of torque they were shooting for 30+ MPG on the highway or at least pretty close. The lower gears and trans changes would accomplish that and since there is a ton of torque it will still be great Offroad.

Can anyone confirm if any Diesel ordered car comes with Dana 44 front and rear outside of the Rubicon? If they upgraded the front to a Dana 44 on a Sahara, I would say it’s worth the extra price for the Diesel.

Might be the priciest build yet! Surely you’re not planning to stick with the plastic bumpers so what’s the plan for the aftermarket?

I have an inquiry. If any of you would happen to have any info on this, I would be immensely grateful.
When ordering a Sahara with the 3.0D, is Selec-Trak still an available option? With the vastly increased torque output, would a clutch based system, such as it is, still hold up enough for F.C.A to offer it?

when I placed my order on 10/12 selec-trac was not an option with the 3.0 diesel. Limited slip diff is included tho.

I have not seen anything about an engine block heater with the diesel as is on the Grand Cherokee and Ram. On those, all that is needed is a power cord as the engine block heater is built in to the engine.

This makes me curious. When I was placing my order I specifically asked for engine heater. When I got my buyers order engine heater was not on it. I noticed it only after my Win was issued. I pointed it to dealer and asked if it could be added. He said that it was too late.
