Now a Jeep Owner

Collected my 2008 JK Wrangler today and I'm very pleased with it so far. 2.8 litre diesel with a turbo

Only trouble I have at the moment is choosing the correct oil. There are two different grades depending on whether or not a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is fitted or not. Hopefully the filler cap will tell me which I'll inspect in the daylight tomorrow.

Its now dark so I'll get some picture up tomorrow after work (working a Saturday morning sucks).

Looking forward to finding my local trail now.

It's the only option available in the UK unless you buy the very rare Rubicon model. We also only get Silver and Black, none of the fancy colors you get in the U.S.

Why only a 2.8? - I'm guessing its due to the ever increasing restrictions on emissions to keep the tree huggers happy. 302lb.ft torque is available from very low revs. Its pulls like a train.
