Owners of Jeep Libertys equipped with the late 2.8L four cylinder turbo diesel engine may now have the chance to pick up a spare engine at what will likely be a rock bottom price. In fact, why stop at just one when there are 158 engines available at auction? That's right, the Jeep factory in Toledo, Ohio has got a surplus of unused engines just sitting on pallets collecting dust. We all know how much Chrysler could use the extra cash right about now, so the extra engines have got to go. Prospective buyers can click here to go to the GoIndustry-DoveBid auction site to see how to get in touch with the right person. Although the auction listing is extremely lacking in details, we wonder if Chrysler is looking to offload all of these engines as a single lot or if it's willing to seperate them. Hmm, we wonder... did a bunch of warranties just expire? Thanks for the tip, r p!

      This is a great candidate for an engine swap for better power and fuel economy. I'd love to put one in my in-laws Mail Jeep. Heck, I'd put one in a 1969 Nova and enjoy the MPG.

      Those are not Jeep Liberty KJ engines, perhaps 2008 KK Liberty engines, but NOT 2002-2007 Liberty engines.

      They may also be JK(wrangler engines).

      Or one of the many other applications of the VM engine.
