With great mixed emotions I traded my old '95. I drive alot and needed something a little more reliable that uses less fuel.
I like my diesels though, drove a new Jeep with the Mercedes engine and knew that was the one.

Going to miss blasting through 2' of snow in hunting season though, and hauling 2 cords of firewood in one load, and the satisfying rumble of the straight pipes and not caring if it is a little dirty and...

I think I will go take my duramax for a drive to feel better.

Right on. At least it is still diesel. I don't think I will ever own another gas truck. I am trying to find my wife a diesel something. I was looking at the Jeep Liberty diesels but they are hard to find around here.

Well, all good things must come to an end, I guess. At least it was for another diesel!

Just got a call from my dad, he's at the dealership looking at a new commander right now. I wasn't aware that they are offering a diesel in them. Or is it just for the cherokees?

I think the diesels are only in the Cherokees, in Canada anyway.

I would like to add that I would have sold it long ago if it wasnt for this website. I was able to keep it running well for reasonable cost with the information available here. Thanks to everyone here that knows more than me (everybody?).

Agreed, this place is irreplaceable, given the amount of knowledge floating around.

Clear on the diesel in Canada, I had not heard of the diesel motor being offered around here anyways.

Anyway, good luck with the new wheels. And stop by and make an appearance once in a while. Or to at least gloat about the better fuel economy.

Jeep, off-topic, be cautious

Anybody looking at Jee:Dp Lib:Derty diesel that engine was a colaboration in development, was a short-lived option I believe, and has known problems.
