I drool over diesel powered vehicles. Also a Mercedes diesel with a Mercedes transmission and 30 mpg's!

In all seriousness though, can you import WG's to the U.S.?

Bigger turbo on the 2.7 Liter!

I see, actually the 2.7 CRD engine and transmission is Made by Mercedes. I am not sure about the import thing, but i can not see any good reasons it wouldnt, but do you know what those jeeps costs over here in Europe?

My thought of it is more like, putting a german engine in an American Jeep is like crossbreading a horse and a Donkey, what do you Get? A mule..... Ha ha

They Are noiseeee, dont like them, the only diesel i like is my friends Excursion with the 7.3 powerstroke V8, heavily modyfied, puts out 450BHP and 1350NM.

Jeep with a mercedes benz drive train is pretty cool in my opinion. Not sure what they cost....

It'd be pretty cool to have a diesel! Duramax diesel is the only way to go for large trucks

Nice work man. I haven't gotten to see my jeep in 6 weeks. So not to many plans.

See I am personally not a big fan of those steel front and rear bumpers. I LOVE the lines on the front and rear bumpers on the Grand. It would seem to hurt me on the inside it I did that. Iceland does have a good front bumper!

lights behind grill are a nice hideaway but i think if you get into a front end hit the lights will just kill your radiator. i keep looking to do it but there not allot of spaces.


the aftermarket steel bumpers are nieces but they add a lot of weight, sag down the jeep, and am sure take a few mpg's off.

its funny if you look at that list some people would say its mild and some would say its just right.

I don't think I would do steel bumpers.

That is a good point about the lights and the radiator. Dont rear end someone!

only reason why i want a steel bumper is so when people back up into the jeep parking it would damage there front or rear end.

yea things happen and hard to control them sometime i like the idea just think it could cause more problems with lights there
