Let me add to that. I bought a 1989 Dodge Ramcharger 4x4 out on the west coast in an area where there were no emissions checks. The truck had all of its smog equipment removed and a full true-dual Flowmaster exhaust installed. The truck got an easy 650 kms to a full 120L tank of gas. Once it arrived in Ontario, I had to get it e-tested. I tracked down a parts-truck of the same year that had recently passed e-test so I bought it and swapped all of its smog equipment including the single exhaust with catalytic convertor onto my Ramcharger. It passed emissions with flying colours but now only gets 425kms to a 120L tank of fuel.

So am I polluting less now that the truck burns 120L in 425 kms instead of 650? I find it hard to believe that it is consider it's now using 40 more liters to go the same distance it used to before it was emissions compliant.

Peterson's 4 Wheel & Off Road last month rated the 2.8 from the old Liberty at 120hp and 240lb-ft of torque. This month they talk about the J8 which is an export model of the JK for the Egyptian military. That version of the 2.8 is rated at 158hp and 295lb-ft of torque.

The EPA has tried to say the same thing about motorcycles....like my harley that gets 42 mpg puts out more harmful emissions as a fullsize suv that get gets about 12 mpg. And I asked the same thing about it uses more than 3 times the fuel than my bike does.

Of course comparing gas to diesel is different due to diesel has more sulfur in it than gas even though the epa is requiring diesel to get down to gas levels soon.

Fresh rumer.

I heard through the grape vine that there was a JK with the 3.0 Mercedes diesel out in Nevada. Can't say anything other than I heard that it was confirmed by a local dealer out there.

Before everyone freaks out and starts to remind all of us about the european spec model that is made only for Europe please keep in mind that they already have a diesel for that market and its not the 3.0. The 3.0 is already 50 state approved for emmisions and ready to roll.

PLEASE LET THIS BE FOR US!

Diesels are getting cleaner than gas! but that is also doubling the price for the engine, have you all put any thought into the diesels that are put in the dodge/freight liner commercial vans? its a small v6. I would also like to mention the 5.9l that is in the pick-ups has a 4 popper that is also a GREAT engine. I have seen many of these engines with unbelievable hours on the engine. If there is a will there is always a way. move out of calf or other smog states and you can do anything!

exactly. looks like you've got a sweet rig. how did the 4BT effect the weight ratio? did you beef up the frame and springs for the overweight engine?

I think the engine weighs about 750# and you can tell its all there. I didnt do anything to the frame and i've been wheeling it for about 3 years. I have the 7.5" springs and a 1.75" spacer in the front to level it out, and i think i have a 6" spring in the rear. I have a bunch of you tube videos under diesel jeep or moprr71

Some at Chrysler/Jeep say it cost between $250,000 to $500,000 for each Govt test , to add a new engine to the wrangler, and it can take more than one test to pass this engine to go into the wrangler ,and to add a second engine to the model, you just start over with the test for this new engine . Note each engine must be type tested with its vehicle, so if jeep wants to put the new 3.6 v6 or a 3.0 diesel into 4 jeep vehicles, it must be tested in each of those jeeps. So you can see how the costs can add up to $ millions . also the tests incluled vehicle crash test and so on. Just our Govt at work.

You seemed to think on the 23rd there would be no diesel...Then on 28th you seem certain that they are? What changed? Whats your source? Please share because we all want one, and no one wants false hope.
