Hello Guys,

Curious if anyone has done a transmission swap on the WK crd. I have been researching the engine and it has been used in a lot of Mercedes platforms. Surely one of these Mercs runs a 6/7/8 speed; Wiki link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_OM642_engine

The reason I wonder is that most guys on here say the engine rpms run to high on the highway. I wish to pick up a WK with higher mileage for cheap and replace fatigued parts. Seems like the best diesel rig in Canada that is not ridiculously expensive! I figure buying one these will allow room in my budget to upgrade a lot of parts. The merc suvs are still 12-15K and mid size diesel trucks are just starting to hit the market!

A manual transmission would be pretty cool...

Any advice welcome!
