A more stripped down version of the 3.0L diesel engine, and $1k less than it used to be. Check out this article:

I love it. More diesel the better so far as I can tell. The engines typically run longer (especially the MBZ diesel engines…we have a 1987 MBZ diesel in the family that we run B100 in [100% biodiesel] and it has 250k + miles on it.)

Not jumping up and down about the fuel economy, though. Seems like that should be able to be improved quite a bit with a tuner…which leaves options for companies like Edge, Bully Dog, and all the rest. Hell, my F250 Super Duty got 16mpg in town and 19mpg on the highway.

Anyway, it’s a step in the right direction. How cool would it be to yank one of these engines and put it into an older ZJ or WJ, or even a 4-door JK?

What do you guys think?

Have a great one,
