I bought a 2010 Rubicon CRD DIESEL!!

I have been wanting jeep forever! And I finally own it! YAY!! I was gonna get one in 2003, but I bought Ford F-150 100th Aniv. Harley Davidson truck instead.

Anyways, I am real happy to be a jeep owner, especially rubicon!

Hmm.. looking forward to get this baby dirty! and do some mall crawling also

There are ways to spend money on a Jeep; lots of ways.
But, boiled down, there are only two categories of aftermarket.
Farkles and Fru-fru.

A snorkel is a farkle; raises your intake above the dust/water level and provides cleaner/cooler air to your engine.
I hear everyone at home grunting.
Chrome grill inserts are fru-fru; all you've added is weight to an already heavy vehicle.
CAIs are fru-fru; they're snorkels without the parts that actually work.

It's the utilitarian nature of the beast; every part must earn their living. No free lunch in Jeep Land.

Hilldweller: wow... thats really well put... I must confess, I did add chrome grille and mirror cover... I am a sucker for chrome... I hope I don't get pummeled when I post some pics! Before I do some modifications, I need to make sure its street legal. I think Korean laws are very different and much more strict then America.

banditman: You can brings cars back to america... But I need to find out more about it. Because, in US you cannot buy diesel, I don't know if its legal to bring it back to states.

Thanks guys for all the nice comments!

My best bud is an importer and from what he has told me you can't bring anything over that doesn't pass our epa/saftey laws....unless its 25 years old or older

BTW, my dad's bud from Australia just got word that they will be getting a diesel jeep pickup very soon.....anxious to see that

From one CRD owner to another - welcome to the forum!
You will love the diesel. I'm guessing that if it the same as mine and meets Eurospec 4 emission regulations, it should not be too hard to get it into the states as that is the most up to date emission spec.
You will love the fuel consumption (or lack of it!!!!). I was driving today and the dash indicated 36mpg
The gas engine guys in the states can only dream of those sort of numbers!

I beg to differ on the grill inserts.
Bugs and debris both get into the radiator and can do damage over time.
Bugs maybe not so much damage, but debris? -definitely.
I see grill inserts as long-term protection for the radiators.
Color wise I'm in the black camp, but color is immaterial to my point.

They can be done light or heavy.

I felt the exact same way about them until I saw my rad one day and that decided I'd rather take a hit to the insert.

I have to disagree (from experience) about the gril insert and the CAI. Snorkel i'm not sure about but i think the only reason to get one is to avoid water in the intake, not polution, which honestly doesn't change in that foot of difference, if u live or have been in LA were polution is very noticible u know how high it holds it self. I'd think it actually cools the engine less 'coz of it's design, that'd just be logical. The CAI adds about 5hp to my SRT8 and a nice throaty sound-worth it, y not on a JK? Not sure about a diesel but 3.6 absolutely IMO. I mean what engine isn't air-happy? The mesh-chrome NO black YES, haven't tested it on my JKU yet but my Commander (u'd be surprised how good off road that thing is until it completely burns down right in front of u) enjoyed the mesh and it saved it's radiator more than once..
