It looks very promising! I'd be interested in it as long as it provides mileage and performance increases

No specs were released on the motor? At this point I don't even want a diesel to come out since I just bought a 2012.

Imagine diesel torque compared to gas engines though....major increase. Then bump it up with a bully dog tuner : )

I'm definitely pro diesel because of the power and fuel economy, but with diesel engines costing more than gas engines to buy, costing more for maintenance, 20% higher diesel fuel prices in my area versus regular gas, and complicated epa emissions systems, I'm taking a wait and see attitude.

I just bought my 2012 and loaded it up with aftermarket accessories. If a diesel was available for a JK, it would have to be significantly better than the Pentastar for me to justify getting rid of my JKU.
