they'd have to do a D60 in the back and a D44 in the front. and even those would concern me when people start beating on them. isn't it pretty tough to snap a 44 on 31's?

The V6 had a Durango for its testbed and delivered 270 hp and 420 lb-ft with 22.1 mpg...

I think the D44 axles would be fine on stock 31's with a TD motor. If someone put really big tires on their Jeep, it might break. But if an axle breaks because someone modified their suspension and tires, the warranty doesn't cover it now anyway.

And that's surprising??

I stopped at a dealer when I was thinking about buying a 4-door JK and the salesboy, who looked like he wasn't a day over 15, wasn't even sure how to get it into 4WD. But he knew I could get it in black!

But a 4-door, unlimited diesel, or better yet, a diesel Jeep truck, dually maybe....

now that would be interesting

Yeah, with all the Cadillac and Lincoln trucks on the road now, It would be nice to see a Dodge 1500 or Dakota with Jeep skin on it. I would buy one.

Wrong. The Liberty diesel was cut for 2007 because they were not selling enough gasoline Liberties and they consumed too many emissions credits.

CNN did a 15 minute piece today on how $70,000 SUV's are rusting out at $30,000 with the soaring fuel costs.

You can't be serious!

WRONG! Our fuel economy is excellent. And if you can smell the tail pipe she's sweet. They went out of production because the I-Ties that build that Euro Bio Diesel don't do biz with the Big C no more. 70 mpg says your take on jsmorris affairs needs some Indian refining. My great GM was a Cree, if that's any help.

Yeah we are gearing up at Cummins for the launch of the LDD. They are building the new lines as we speak. I am at the fuel system plant that has nothing to do with the LDD but i want a diesel wrangler to be built in my lifetime.

Nope, you're wrong. New Tier 2 Bin 5 Emissions standards grounded virtually every light duty diesel in the country due to emissions. Hell, even VW didn't have a diesel this year.
