Not to sure how to reply direct to someone, but turismo, very informative reply thanks. Diesel engines of today are nothing like yester year with the big half million kms u see on the patrols these days. But this reply has given me food for thought, i will wait for the jl to be released and more solid info on it is available before taking the plunge. Altho at this stage the jl seems loaded with electrics that im not to keen on i.e electric retractable roof :s. So a jk could well be in my driveway soon.

11kms p hundred touring is but a dream for me atm. I go down the street and im pushing 19lph take it off road and im selling my soul to make it out of the bush with some fuel left aha.

You say mount the auto trans cooler away from the grill? Is there anywhere else to mount one? Always thought up in front was the best place for it.
Also your tune to delete the egr, how much was that and where did u get that done. I am from perth.
Cheers
Brad.

I agree. The modern day diesel engine has too much anti pollution crap hanging off it.
Not long after I buy a new diesel, I get a tune with a EGR delete.
Have never deleted the DPF & pipe before, but have on my Grand Cherokee. Usually do the exhaust and change the air filter to a non oil AFE.
I also add 300ml of Penrite TWC-3 2 stroke mineral oil per 90Lt tank.

My engines run quieter, smoother, cooler, more economical.... and the oil stays unbelievably clean, to the point where my mechanic has had the oil tested by his Penrite rep.

I do believe that if you buy a modern day diesel, you will have to give it a little help if you want to get the same Klm's as the diesels of old.

Cheers, Craig

I think it's good they are bringing the 3 ltr diesel out in the new wrangler.My jk with the diesel cost 46k back in 2009 now they are over 50k. Wonder how much the new Jl is I bet over 60k and will it be able to tow 3500kg

I went down the road of buying a wh crd limited with 100k on the clock.it only cost 16k . this sorted out my problem with towing and off road.
It all comes down to what you are will ing to pay and what you want

The gill area is the most logical area to mount a trans cooler, but it's just too cramped already with the intercooler there etc. Some people do still mount a small cooler there and have had positive results though. Others with much better results have mounted the cooler somewhere else on the vehicle and usually with its own thermo fan (turns on/off at a set temp), the most common place I've seen people choose to mount them is above the rear diff (big cavity there that is somewhat away from potential damage). The most common argument as to why mounting above the rear diff is bad idea is because it can fill with mud if you like driving through that stuff, if not then its prob a non issue, also mounting it up there is pretty much the same height if not higher than where water/mud would reach on the grill area as you enter a mud hole anyway, so it would still get covered/caked in mud if mounted behind the grill. Also creating space to mount it behind the grill usually means switching to an angry grill style that is 'hiflo' (bigger grill opening), which may or may not be your thing...

For tuning, I highly recommend Infinitech Tuning in Wangara, Roger is the owner/tuner and he is really nice to deal with. For us Perth guys there's not much choice in tuning our CRD's and I did a fair bit of ringing around and asking on FB groups etc, and discovered where other's had bad experiences etc and everyone who had used Infinitech was very happy. There was a guy from Kalgoorlie who had is JK CRD with a EGR issue and booked into ECU West (very well known diesel tuning place) in Mandurah for a day to have it tuned and the EGR program deleted, he drove his family to Perth for an overnight round trip, ECU West stuffed up and couldn't sort it at all, so returned his ECU to stock and sent him on is way, he was devastated. He asked around for help and a couple of us told him to speak to Roger at Infinitech, who was fully booked but squeezed him in after hours and got his JK CRD tuned and EGR sorted.

Well, after waiting, waiting, have had to make a decision for our new 4wd.

JK/JL is too small with storage for our extended family outback trips. Was hopeful about the Scrambler JT but really it would take a couple of years for it to be sorted so 2019/20 and maybe it won't even be suitable.

Placed an order now for the Cruiser 79 series. Will arrive and be setup by mid year with luck. It aint no Jeep, but it is a useful outback 4x4, and lots of options available. Apart from being a front/rear live axle system, it has less tech than the modern 4x4's which I consider is a benefit offroad in the outback.

Ours will be somewhat like this one, but the rear canopy will be for storage etc, not a camper built in.

Happy to post about it if anyone is interested when it arrives and I don't cop too many insults. Yep, I like Jeeps, but too long to wait for something for us
