Yes and the warranty does not begin until you purchase the Jeep, so you didn't lose a thing. I wouldn't worry about it one bit. The only time this would even remotely be an issue for me is if I was...

I'll put it into perspective for you.. The Jeep Liberty CRD that was sold in the U.S. had a 2.8L I-4 turbo-diesel and it was backed by the 545RFE transmission...the same transmission used in the Ram...

The YJ was 87-96 which is 10 years. They sold them in 1996 even though they did not call them 1996 models.

The TJ was 97-06 which again is 10 years.

The JK is 07-16 which keeps them...

Mine made 370 lb/ft at 1,600 RPM. The Pentastar gas V6 makes what, 180 lb/ft at that point? Again.. turbo diesel in a Jeep is a complete night/day experience. You have to own one for a week and...

For a Jeep, no. K&N filters let in too much particulate.

For a car with the Pentastar I can confirm that a K&N CAI does in fact add power and reduce 0-60 times. I'm talking CAI, not just a...

In the real world, these engines are getting about 6-7 MPGs more than gas engines in the same Jeep. So as long as diesel fuel is less than about $0.80/gallon more you're still saving money with...

Mounted mine to the side of the console, passenger side, so that the face of the CB points up and the passenger seat can still slide. This way it's easy to get to, is completely out of the way, and...

No, it would get the 3.0L V6 diesel if it gets one at all. Why would Jeep pay all that money to certify yet another diesel engine when it's already got the 3.0L in two different U.S. vehicles?

On my '11 with the shatty 42RLE transmission...yes. 4.56 vs. 4.88 is virtually unnoticeable but the 4.88s are cheaper and more plentiful to purchase. It was a no-brainer.

On the '12 no gear...

I guarantee that if you did a blind test and had people drive a 4.56 and 4.88 geared Jeep back to back, they would not be able to detect any difference whatsoever.

It's only, what, 150 RPM? ...

My buddy runs the 255/85-16 version of the ST (precursor to ST Maxx) on his Land Cruiser and loves them. They are very narrow so I strongly recommend a 7" wide wheel.

Powerblock TV put a 6.6L big block Trans-Am from the late 70s on the dyno and got 150 horsepower.
