Bonjour from Haute Vienne

Hi everyone - Just a short note to introduce myself to the forum - name is Bruce, originally from Adelaide, Sth Aust, then UK, now France and shortly down to spain. Have had a Cherokee as a work horse for a lot of years but with 200,000+ miles on clock time to get a new Jeep - looking at the JK Wrangler wich seems to suit my needs. Do a lot of boating and with beach launches need a decent four wheel drive to cope with the conditions. The 2.8 CRD Sahara or Overland look great, any pros/cons, particularly mechanical reliability would be welcomed. Look forward to hearing from you guys.
