CRD's have some bugs that need to be worked out but I don't know if I would really call them porblematic.

Does it have to be a CRD? I mean a regular KJ will tow 5000lbs. Gas mileage, mine is all city at the moment and the computer says I get 18.3 right now.

Also the CRD's are hard to find and they aren't cheap.

Now what price range were you looking to spend?
Current Jeep
2007 JK Sahara Unlimited, Steel Blue, 6spd, 4.10's, 33X12.5's, some other cheap stuff

Former Jeeps
2002 KJ Silver Liberty Limited Stock

Reason I asked price range was because I know of a couple regular KJ's for sale.

I have talked to a few CRD owners and they report that they themselves have never had any real problems with the ride - one said that he was disappointed in the fuel economy but that was it.

Another said that he had had a problem with a head gasket issue and that the Jeep folks made it right and he was very pleased.

If you want to pick the brains of CRD owners you may want to prowl around and post up on the LOST KJ site:

http://www.lostkjs.com/forum/phpBB2/ind ... 20ab129790

or the JeepKJ site

http://www.jeepkj.com/forum/index.php

You even may find one out there for sale.

Good Luck!
See ya!
