  1. I have a 2005 Jeep Cherokee (Liberty in US) KJ, 2.8 CRD Sport, with the VM Motori R428 2.8 litre Diesel engine (161 bhp and 296 ft-lbs (400Nm) of torque) mated to a six speed manual gearbox. A discussion came up, in one of the Jeep forums I frequent, that talked about the various transmissions used in the KJ and it said that the six speed manual gearbox was the NGS 370. Clearly this cannot be the case with the CRD, because according to the Novak guide to the NGS 370, it can only handle a maximum input torque of 271 ft-lbs, and my Cherokee CRD is putting out 25 ft-lbs more than this! So if it isn't the NGS 370, does anyone know what 6 speed manual gearbox it does use? An Aisin BG6??
  2. Found this old thread when looking for the type of gearbox in my UK spec 2005 Jeep Cherokee (Liberty in US) Sport 2.8 CRD with six speed manual gearbox...I'm getting more than double the mpg than "The O.C"s petrol powered version...38 US mpg or 45 UK mpg!
