looking at buying a 2008 CRD
 
Ok so I found a 2008 lerado diesel a 2.5 inch lift and with 43000 miles on it that is a one owner and it was a women...the dealer was asking 27995 and I got them down to 24000 my question is what do I need to look for and is the jeep worth it and also will the diesel motor last me or is it just more of a pain in the a**. I have a stock 2004 limited right now with 120000 miles on it should I just keep it and not get the new one with the diesel and which one will get better mph any feed back from yall would really help

Drives great with loads of grunt

Runs right upto 120mph no bother

...just one word: BUY!! Itīs the best combination available. the diesel is a mercedes engine - so if you take care of it, it will last for 250k miles and more. it has more torque than a v8 and WAAAY BETTER milage. i average at 21-22mpg (2/3@90mph 1/3@city). it runs 125mph if needed (15mpg) with no problem. so i highly recoment the diesel. we just get our wk2 crd overland - we will see how the italian engine will perform against the benz...

I'm still looking for a 2008 Overland Diesel that is reasonably priced. The Diesel engine is the only thing that would make me trade up for newer.

I bought mine used with 45,000 miles, now have 60,000, no issues. i will be replacing the turbo hose with an updated one as they have known to leak and cause larger repair bills on 2 grand. For 100 bucks I think i will do it.

The truck pulls my 2 jetski's with no effort. I have the OME 3" suspension lift and love it! I just wish it had a 5th gear!!!!!!!! Revs a little high on the highway. an extra gear would have meant these things getting better highway milage.

Just hit 90,000 on my 2008 CRD. The swirl valve and the glow plug control module had to be replaced a around 70,000 miles. The transmission control module also went out, but that's not specific to the diesel engines.

It's great for towing a 5,500 lb travel trailer and also doesn't have to drop out of 5th gear to climb mountain passes at 10,000 ft when running without the trailer.

If you want 4WD, make sure it of it. My parents almost bought an 07 CRD, decently priced at $22K. They brought to me for a test drive and need 4WD where they live. I peeked under the front for leaks, and no guts! It even had the QDII badge on the center console... no low range shifter though. I'm glad I caught it.
