Looking for real life impressions of the way the 3.0 turbo diesel drives

There are a few reviews on youtube. One guy did a good one. Drove it for 600 miles on the review and said it did great.

Waiting to see one in person.

They have a tuner available in Europe for the Jeep Cherokee 3.0. It states up to 300 hp and 520 torque on the high setting and a possible increase of 3 to 5 mpg.

We don't have emissions testing here with diesels, I'm interested to start seeing what the aftermarket vendors will produce with handhelds. 520 lb. torque sounds impressive for the 3.0.

Well, you cant go by the start up pic because the other side of the truck in in a ditch raising the side we see higher!

Go to the 4min mark. There's only 2" in front and 3" in back for tire-fender clearance. Give or take. That is low. It just looks low. There's another shot at the 17min mark.

Also, oldjeep, you have 2wd. 4wd sits higher anyways. The truck being reviewed is 4wd.

I might have to trade in my 09 for this. ****ty mpg forces me to drive something else for a DD.

My lift and tires take ~4 mpg from my truck, when I'm not smashing the pedal! Same mods on this and you are still looking at ~25mpg on my commute.

I like that they added a ground plug to the 110v outlet. Question is, did they bump the amps up? I tried to run a drill from it will no luck.
