No it doesn't have a real chassis- it just has a stronger, more ladder-like Unibody. Had a good look around one the other day at training, no slip yoke!(yay!) plenty of scope for lift as well, as with KJ,WH and XH at standard height drive shafts still have 1-2 degree up angle, but once a decent bar is fitted to the front it has more tyre clearance than any of them...

The CRD does not come from Mercedes Benz. It is a newer version of the one in the KJ and is the same as in the JK Wrangler.
It sits lower than a KJ but seems to handle rough terrain ok. Hill descent control and traction control helps. Needs a good lift kit and bigger rubber to do more serious stuff. Time will tell if it is any better than KJ but it is most definatley not as good as a XJ.

FYI, the BLD (Brake Lock Diffs) seem pretty good standard.

We have had a few through training now and in standard kit they made it through everything without much drama...although one of them has had a plastic cover under that no one could really explain. We initially thought that it was extra protection for the oil filter (thinking they may have learned a little but not enough from the KJ ) but we then realised that it was on a Petrol...one had one and one didn't. We didn't pull it off (Chrysler demo) but would be interested in knowing what it's actually for if anyone does.

I know a guy who farmed with a M-F diesel tractor for six years before he found out it was a three pot and not a four as he thought. Even sounded rather like a four when working. Just used this to illustrate how so few working parts can generate so much diesel torque

A 2.8L V-6 Diesel would be more powerful, quieter and smoother accelerating with less vibration in the cabin. Even the fuel cunsumption might be lower. On top of that resale value would be phenomenal.

Is the 2270 towing capacity just for the petrol version? Because my 2.8CRD KJ is rated at 2850kg with lower power and torque figures, so it seems strange that the KK should have less capacity.

Unfortunatley Jeep have lowered the tow rating on KK (they say for safety reasons) I suspect their original KJ tow rating for the CRD was a bit too optimistic but most people seem to have been happy with the KJ CRD tow rating and stability.
