Yeah, it does. the stack was off of a tractor that I had sitting out back and it was quick and easy, not to mention an attention getter, for the time being.
We are going to be moving it into the hood. We have a new manifold and turbo setup that we are working on to get the turbo further forward so we can com straight up.

That looks great, a diesel is something I've always wanted in a Jeep. Do you have any idea what kind of mileage you're getting out of it?

We have checked it several times and it is always around 20mpg. That is running around town. The jeep has 4.88 gears and only cruises at about 58mph comfortably, so we seldom get on the interstate with it. I have heard claims of 30mpg from people with the same engine, smaller tires, and more road friendly gears.

Yeah, ever since he started working out, he thinks he's cool without sleeves.
There are more videos on youtube. Try searching Garrett's diesel jeep or my photobucket account is under the name: rrbgtt
