Does the diesel Patriot get a beefier drivetrain to deal with the extra torque or does it use the same parts?

I know the transmission is different, but I'm more thinking the axles and transfer cases, everything after the transmission...

My buddy and I were talking about performance parts and I was thinking that if the drivetrain is able to deal with the torque of the diesel then if someone was crazy enough to try to add a turbo to one of the gas motors that the drivetrain would at least be able to handle it...

I believe Getrag is an independent German engineering company that specialise in transmissions. I think their boxes can be found in lots of cars from Merc Benz to the Ford Mustang. I think they also specialise in close ratio sport boxes........
