    I've had mine since new (2009) and have looked after it pretty well
    (20k services and mid service oil change @ stealers). Maniac has worked
    his magic (2" lift, bumpers, tyre carrier, long range tank).

    Recently (during a long trip) I found that I was using a bit more accelerator
    & fuel than usual. The stealers thought the turbo was fine and suggested I ignore
    the problem as a new turbo is +- R45k. Wynand from Turbotech worked
    his magic (seals, shaft & balancing) on the turbo for about 25% of that.

    If you buy a CRD Commander with more than 120k km, I would definitely
    suggest that you let Wynand take a look.

    Flip, my WK CRD still has another 240 000km to go to reach that mark!!!

    My 3.0 CRD WK currently stands on 288 000 km and is still going well. I recently replaced all six injectors as it was slightly smoking on idling. Three of them was dripping and the other three also wasn't new anymore. About R30K for the 6 injectors. It is still on the original turbo (I think complete replacement turbo is about R15k-R20K).

    In the last 100K kilometres I've replaced tyres, shocks (front 1x Billsteins, 1x rebuilt Billsteins and now an original Mopar set and at the rear a set of Procomp shocks which does well) , a set of front brake pads (after 100 000km not completely finished), glow plugs and control module, alternator (don't spill oil on it!), 2x starters (had a damaged ring gear), ignition switch, bypassed the swirl motor and knocked out the cat. For the rest it was normal services (most of them were done on 20 000km intervals). The Jeep has been lifted for the last 100 000 and CV's are still OK. Most of the repairs and servicing I do myself. Bulli replaced the second starter and sorted out the ringgear.

    I am quite happy with the service I get from the Jeep and plan to keep it for quite some time (that justified the injector replacements). Maybe a turbo in the near future as preventative maintenance.

    It is possible to spend less on a small vehicle, but my opinion is that well looked after 3.0 CRD is good value for money if you take the type of vehicle and the second buying price into account.

    By the way, the Jeep still haven't swallowed 2so....

    Great info! Thank you.
    I was thinking I'll definitely do a 2"lift and 31"s if I go this route.

    Every one survived to live another day. This happened end of Feb this year.

    Traffic queing up the road peak hour, leaving the workshop i need to cross the standing lane going down to turn right to go up. Putco gives me a gap, scooter comes down in oncoming lane and the end result you can see in the picta.
