Jeep Wrangler 2.8 CRD

Designed for the deserts of California, the Jeep Wrangler is a little out of place in an urban enviroment. Perhaps the ultimate off road convertible, it makes no compromises for road use but then nobody buys a Wrangler for its practicalities. The CRD diesel engine was developed for the export market where the competitive price and excellent fuel economy now put it in a position to challenge the Land Rover Defender as the best 4×4 workhorse. Due to its simple construction and long life the Wrangler can even make claims as an eco vehicle.

    Great vehicle. 2007 CRD Auto. 95000 km. Heavy driving 4×4 and never had problem. No oil leaks. Diffs clear. Breathing pipes on diffs are excellent. Usage us 12,7 litre per 100km. 2inch lift and with mud terrain tyres. Not a car for four person every day driving. Will definitly buy next generation model again. Also drive Grand Cherokee, Land Rover Puma 90. Toyota LDV 2.4 diesel.
