I'm thinking its about time for some new injector nozzles.....it shouldn't smoke like that. My engine starts with very little to no smoke even at 0F....and its a much older engine/design!

It doesn't do this under "normal" conditions, the combination of cold and exceptionally high altitude seems to do this to any diesel, even our 05 Liberty CRD smokes pretty good in these same conditions.

LOL no kidding, before it was able to start smoking it would just barely move, so we got it away from my jeep. Though a good amount of smoke still made it's way into the back of my jeep, needless to say my dogs were pretty freaked out by it.
