Origin of 3.8 Liter?

I am confused I was told before the new jk's came out that the new 3.8 Liter was a mercedes engine Part of the old Daimler Chrysler merger. Yet, I read around on this forum and people are saying it is the chrysler van engine. Which is it or is it both. The big question is, is it a mercedes engine or not?

it came straight out of a caravan, enjoy.

i have not looked at it personally, since i haven't seen a jk in the shop yet, but as far as i'm concerned, thats what it is. 3.8 has been in chrysler/dodge mini vans for quite a while, and its a good motor.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
