My new used 2008 WK Diesel

Well, I have had my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 3.0L Diesel,LT Greystone for about 1 month now and love it. Was looking all over U.S. for about 3 months. Found one actually in Southern CA. It has all options, 4x4 and only 33,400 miles. I recently added Green Diesel Engineering tune and K&N drop in filter and snorkle modification (I added wide and longer pipe from the airbox to the grill. Love driving it, got 26.1 miles on the freeway on my way to Santa Cruz last weekend. Wanted to get exhaust and might wait to see how Magnaflow is configured.

Yep, I love my diesel too. With the GDE and the intake, and when you get the exhaust done they can really fly!

Congrats on the purchase.

Re: My new used 2008 WK Diesel

Hi All,
Donít know if anyone can enlighten me in relation to LPG injection with the Fiat diesel. They were reasonably common here in Australia with the Mercedes engine (Government rebate of $2000 helps). Jeep seemed very definite with a no for the new engine. Is the possible 20% extra torque too much for the engine (still the same gearbox)?
