:BANANA:

I did took the plunge and just purchased an 05 KJ with 86K out of state (Co) . Little to no rust, maintenance records car fax and safety inspection done.

picked it up for $6900. shipping to Ca $625
so I am in it for 7700 after paying a third party for inspection

The known bad.
Drivers seat sensor not reading, Could be the prior owner bypassed the switch by twisting a pair. ?
The serp belt is about to go.
Needs a engine bay cleaning
Seat covers easy enough
tires
hitch recall not done
Bluetooth head unit ..lol

Things I know I need to order before driving the KJ when it gets delivered. going for reliability first then upgrades with the suspension

I have used IDparts for my TDI .. any other vendors I should use please speak up

TB kit and tools
water pump
Pulleys
EGR delete kit or tune ... GDE or ?
sunco TC
Rockers
APR studs
head gasket

I so happy to be a diesel owner again

Welcome. You have come to the right place. As I recall, the CRDs were not sold in CA, so you're going to be pretty much on your own.

Pull the MAP sensor out and inspect. If it is crusty you will need to do something about the EGR ASAP. If it's clean, perhaps the PO has taken care of this already. If you do need to do something about the EGR, the Weeks stuff looks nice, but I really love my GDE tune. More power, better fuel economy, reduced EGR.

Don't know why you would need rockers or pulleys (except maybe the one on the alternator), but they're easy enough to check when you're doing the studs. I bought a set of rockers for mine, but when I did my studs I found that they were in fine shape so I did not replace them. Instead, spring for a Weeks stage 1 kit.

Another problem you should address soon if it hasn't been fixed already is the air leaks in the fuel system and the fuel filter head. Use the search function.

Welcome to LOST

Issues you might have
TB, if it hasn't been changed will need to be soon
- belt, tensioner, idlers
- While your in there might as well swap out the water pump.
Air in fuel: can be caused by the connections at the fuel tank or the first generation fuel filter assembly
- Get the new fuel filter
- install an in-tank lift pump. (wiring and fuse came from the factory but DC elected to cut corners and delete the pump)
- replace the fuel hose at the tank with new lines
Clogged up intake
- EGRectomy and clean the MAP sensors
- Check OEM turbo hoses for oil and gunk, clean or replace
- "Pro-vent" or Elephant hose to eliminate oil in intake
Head Gasket Leak
- If you don't have any water in the overflow section of the coolant tank and coolant isn't being lost as you drive, say amen.
- ARP studs and a new head gasket are usually the cure if there is no head warpage
CRD running cold
- OEM Thermostat is a piece of crap. I have gone through one a year. Get on the list for billet replacement TStat

Stuff that makes it more fun to drive
- GDE tune
- New Torque converter for the added power from GDE
- Lifts and Armor if your into offroading
.... how deep are your pockets.

As far as sourcing parts, IDparts is great, Rockauto is my goto.

You are now LOST
