A completely unsubstanciated rumor hits our inbox.

An anonymous source of our recently wrote in to tell us that DaimlerChrysler may be looking into adding a diesel-powered Wrangler to the lineup. Apparently, some diesel-friendly frames have been delivered to Jeep Engineering recently for testing.

Has anyone else heard anything about this? If so, let us know at jeepnews@OneToMany.com.

Update (2/12/04) - a reader from Austrailia emailed us and let us know that he's heard the rumor as well - specifically for a long-wheel-base Scrambler pickup.
