    Build your own is live on Jeep.com but doesn't list the diesel as an option yet.

    The article does list the output of the yet to be offered Ecodiesel as 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque.

    I might have to take a hard look at it depending on how the diesel's tow specs wash out.

    Looks like the legacy front end of the Wrangler sort of tied the engineers hands @Bounty Hunter
    The towing numbers will be lower with this one: https://jalopnik.com/the-engineering...ing-1833657453

    Oh boy. Here's a hint that the new Ecodiesel may still be struggling with cooling issues.

    Darn, darn, darn ...

    from the article

    With best-in-class 4x4 payload at 1,650 pounds and best-in-class 4x4 towing of 7,650 pounds,

    also the following indicates efforts to increase cooling and recognize the importance of the grill

    A trick integrated trailer brake controller is optional, but a two-inch Class IV receiver is standard, as is a higher wattage fan and larger grille slat openings to support increased cooling.

    I have a feeling the 1500 will be getting a little bit more out of the engine. Wouldn't be the manufacturer's put the same motor in separate vehicles with different HP/TQ specs. Usually the only difference is the computer tune.
    2015 Limited, 3.55 LSD, bought 1/2017 (36k miles). GDE tuned since 3/17, 73k miles and counting.
