Re: So what drivetrain upgrades?

Unfortunately there aren't really any upgrades yet to the drivetrain. What are you looking for? You can get a lift kit or performance rotors or pads, but that is pretty much it. 17's won't fit with...

Re: 2014 Overland EcoDiesel Compund Twin Turbo Install!

Re: Jeep OM642 CRD Performance Mod's

The engine won't hold to 500 HP. The rods and pistons won't hold that much power. 400 HP would be the top of what a stock engine could handle, but you will be pushing the limit of the stock head...
