Greetings from Austria

I'm member of this forum since May 2011, but it seems like I've never properly introduced myself.

I'm Alex from Linz in the heart of Austria. I'm Dodge Nitro (2.8l CRD) and Jeep CJ7 (4.2l) owner and I run my own multimedia agency and filmproduction company Visual Kings Media which I founded in 2001. My company produced Europe's first webtv crime-show Paradise Island shot on location in Mexico, featuring some cool Jeep CJs.

I'm really satisfied with my modern blue Nitro. It's my daily business car. Guess I will stay with it till I buy a new Dodge Durango in a few years. What Fiat does to the Jeep and Dodge brand is crazy. I will never understand why they killed the Nitro in late 2011 and removed the RAM head from their new models.

Fiat will never understand the testosterone injected Dodge brand. Since Fiat is in command they completely removed Dodge from Europe. 3 Jeep models and a few renamed Dodge/Chrysler cars under the Fiat/Lancia brand is all that is left from the Chrysler Group in Europe.

Here is my Dodge Nitro:

Hi, Alex.

This ones for you!



Austria is my second choice for a place to live. You know the code on the plate:
"W" and the red Badge: Wien (Vienna)
"HU 14" - my Indiana plate: "HU" - Huntington University, 14 next number in succession.

Have a great day, and thanks for posting.

Dave

2.8L CRD Dodge Nitro - Exhaust and CAI??

Firstly I would like to say hi to everyone as a new member to this forum. I look forward to conversing on many occassions over a broad spectrum of topics...

My Nitro is fairly standard at this stage. I am in the process of awaiting the arrival of the Diesel Power module from Turbotech.com.au. Below are the predicted variances.

Stock 130 KW 177 HP 460 Nm
Diesel Power 153 KW 208 HP 542 Nm

What I am seeking from the knowledge base on this forum is advice for an exhaust system and CAI for my 2008 Dodge Nitro 2.8L CRD.

I am open to suggestions and look forward to your responses and the subsequent thread chain.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. The CRD was never offered as an option here in the states, so I can't really be of any help. If the CRD was an option here, I'd have one! Good luck in your search!

Welcome to the forum. No, sad to say, there is not a lot of feedback here, since production of the Nitro stopped last December.

Hi. My name is Geoff and I live in Sydney.

I have just brought a 2009 Nitro S-XR 4 by 4.

This may be just an Australian model as only 100 were made , Its an upgrade of the S-XT

It's the 2.8 Diesel turbo.

I want it to tow my new camping trailer that's on the way.

Welcome to the forum. Is your hitch the US standard or the EU standard? :confused:

I really do not know . It is called a treg hitch here. It's a polypoly block with about a 1 inch hole in the centre. bar passes from tow bar through hole and then a cross cross bar locks it in

treg hitch - Bing Images

Some nice looking trailer tents here.
Thanks for the link. I am not familiar with this type of hitch, so I can not comment on the load ratings. The CRD was never offered in the States because it was not certified in all 50 states. So, I can not comment on the tow rating of the Nitro with the CRD. It appears that I have struck out twice!
