The second TJ (the subject of this writeup) was much more straightforward in installation, wiring, and setup than the first. I remember the second, third, fifteenth 6.0 Powerstroke engine warranty swap being so much easier than the first, which was hell. Same for the 20th EGR cooler, VG turbo, etc. And many of those were lifted (God help me) 4x4's and ambulances. Makes the VW TDI engines look like child's play.

Point is it's getting more a "known" and not a "what if". And with that, the price will become more reasonable, not to mention it'll be within the reach of drivers within emissions testing areas.

The 2.0 CRD VAG cars outnumber the legacy mechanical boat anchors and ALH/BEW/BRM cars now, with sales increasing each year. The Bosch CRD system is a benchmark used by DMAX, Iveco, Motori, Valmet Matra, VAG, Benz, Cummins, on and on. Proven. It makes sense to go with that engine.
