Hi from the south...

...way, way south!

I'm based in Sydney, Australia and have had my JK for about a year and a half.





It's a 2-dr Diesel with the 5 speed auto transmission.

Current modifications:-
Rancho shocks with custom progressive coils (+3" front, 2" rear)
Full set of adjustable short arms
ORO Dual-rate front sway bar
Currie Anti-Rock rear sway bar
JE Reel front drive shaft
Coast rear driveshaft
ARB Rear Locker
Aussie Locker in the D30 front
Rubicon Express front panhard (actually a TJ part)
Teraflex Rear track bar tower
D30 has been sleeved + Chromo Axles
ARB Front Bar + TJM Winch + Rugged Ridge HID Spotties
35" Bridgestone KM2 Muddies on DC-1 Torque Rims
Steinbauer Diesel Performance Module ([email protected] - 370ft/lb @ 1800rpm)

More changes in the pipeline...

Sorry about that - I've driven Hemi conversions, and the low down torque of the oil burner is definately the way to go for everything other than land speed record attempts...

Welcome to JKO

Any info on how you got the diesel? Or does Chrysler/Fiat sell them outside the US?

I understand the Jeep thing

I'm afraid that is the case, although for some reason only Europe gets the diesel Rubicon. We only get it in the Sport specification.
