    Welcome to the forums.
    Do you take you diesel CRD jeep off road at all?
    Were you thinking about possibly a lift or even some lighting mods, maybe a roof rack?
    What did you have in mind? I know we can help spend some $$ for you ha ha..;)

    First thing I’d do is order the ecu flash tool cable off eBay, and try to find a way to get the thermostat temp up about 20° more.
    The tune will disable your EGR, and you can physically remove it or not as you like.
    Disconnect the fuel heater connector, pull the coolant heater relay.
    You can tune in a lot more power but you’ll need to bulletproof the tranny if you do so.
    Gut the cat, disconnect the PCV, install an EGT gauge, in-tank lift pump,
    That’s the short list lol.

    Welcome to the Forum:)

    I would advise you to download the 2006 KJ service Manual here...gives you lots of information such as Error codes and what to do about them, Service Information and Wiring Diagrams which you will need one dayo_O

    Any funny electrical problems that you may pick up on your Jeep...be aware that the 2006 CRD has a known problem whereby the Fuel Filter Head Mounting Bracket damages the main wiring harness behind it. So it is worth removing this Bracket to check the condition of the harness behind it and protect the harness with some form of sponge padding! May prevent you getting stranded in the middle of nowhere sometime!;)
