Cool Newbie to this forum

Hello folks,

I live in Luxembourg, Europe and ordered a new Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited a couple of days ago and I traded in my black Rubicon 2.8 Diesel. The new Pentastar definitely convinced me...
I had problems to choose my colour, usually I preferred black, but this time I thougt it was about time to change, so I took "Dozer"

It will be my second Wrangler, before I owned a GC and a Cherokee, both with Diesel engines,

Paul

Great colour choice! I am torn between that and Gecko Pearl ... available Jan of 2012, I hope.
How was your diesel, we don't get it here in North America

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys

@IIworlds: My diesel was fine (it still is, I'll drive it till I get my new Jeep in a couple of month...), it has tremendous torque (460Nm.), but it is also quite loud and rough, it is an inline 4 indeed and it lacks the smoothness of a gas engine, especially of a V6.
I used to drive a 2005 Grand Cherokee with the V6 3 litre Diesel by Mercedes and that engine was more fun to drive, it was running a lot smoother...
