Dave in Georgia has a nice ride. Can't tell if it's 4wd with parasitic mopar front axle mpg loss. Bet that egr pollution of the intake doesn't exist. Not providing a direct link but you can find a nice Comanche in the October newsletter at rockauto. I'm sure that there are many examples out there but I don't seem to care about diesels anymore.
Why do I check in here then you might ask- to check on posts from winter and his saga.

Chrysler probably expect people to forget.
After 9 years my CRD is still running fine, the body doesn't rust, nothing is torn nor deteriorated due to the dog, carrying bicycles and grandchildren.
The only leak I had to fix came from the ferrules of the common rail pipes that I removed and re-installed.
The Provent is still waiting on a shelf, mileage has never been optimal but the engine is peppy, starts as I turn the key and still has the original glow plugs.
I had the suspensions and wheel alignment checked after a technical inspection and everything was found safe and sound.
The pollution test done at several engine regimes and accelerations reveals 'lower than minimal' values.
This 150HP engine was declared 'de-rated' compared to the 163HP version and I still don't understand what 'de-rated' means; could it be a distinction?

I jusf installed a eco tune from Green Diesel will let you know how it works.
So far ( No light on the dash,Has been on for months)
More RPM and quick to start off the stop line.
Have been off work for a week,so can not tell about the milage so far.
I do about 100 miles a day.

with mine the eco-tune had little if any effect on miliage, the provent seemed to have a positive effect on miliage and I did it prior to the eco-tune. the eco-tune had a noticeable positive effect on power and does get rid of the check engine light due to the provent.
My CRD was getting 30+ mpg on the freeway from the day I bought it after disconnecting the maf (or map, I get them confused) sensor.

My Jeep always averaged 22.5 mpg throughout the year, and 11L/100Km is what the CRD was supposed to do according to our tax(es) calculation.
I use A/C, 4WD every now and then, give the engine time to warm-up in the winter, drive 130 Km/h all day on the motorway when needed, do service every 15,000 miles with mineral oil and never have anything to worry about; except perhaps to replace it one day.

When you say you took "great Care" of it, what changes did you make to the "Stock" CRD?

THX for all you help uncle bob....traded that 2005 4x4 CRD limited off for the paltry sum of $4500...not been that happy cutting losses in years...knew the day i looked over at the window and saw that mopar symbol that it was a major mistake...good riddance and ya'll have fun on this forum...there is a great need for sure...Chrysler was bankrupt for a reason...even the prettiest and best designed trash is still trash...oh wait...one more!!!...when you by a Jeep, get the off-road package; it should include a rental while your Jeep is on the shop rack off the road:)
