    So I own a 2007 jeep grand Cherokee with the mecedes 3.0 v6 diesel. I recently blew a hole in #5 piston which in turn now I need a new engine. No one in my area can rebuild this engine and or find a reman not even my Chrysler dealer. So I get to my question what should I do... Does anyone know anyone who can rebuild a Mercedes OM642 3.0 v6 diesel? And or should I do a hemi swap? I love my WK and don't want to get rid of it yet.please help!!!
