    Anybody ever see a wrangler or CJ with a diesel in it? I was mulling it over and it seems like a neat idea.

    I believe it is an option on Jeeps not sold in North America.

    A Cummins 4bt is a popular swap in Jeeps and early Broncos.

    How many miles per gallon? Is it as loud as my Ford SD, if you know? I own seven diesels and the price of fuel is crazy. Bought a jeep wrangler unlimited to plow condos we own, some are up to fifty miles from where we live, kind of a pain. a diesel and bigger fuel tank would help.

    average about 21 or 22mpg...its not nearly as loud as a big diesel because its only a 4 cylinder, but you definitely know theres a diesel under the hood. She smokes real nice when you punch it at a stop light or merging onto the highway and the turbo spools up really nice and throws your head back a little when it kicks in...overall its a really nice little engine, they don't make them in the liberty anymore but you can get a new grand cherokee with a diesel in it now...but to compare it to a cummins or a power stroke isn't really applicable because they are in two different classes
