deisel swap
has anyone ever considered swapping their v8 out of their jeep and dropping in a diesel engine? is it even possible?

There was diesel versions here '99-'01 had the Detroit Diesel 3.1 lump and '02-'04 had a Mercedes Benz 2.7 lump which was a huge improvement and responds pretty well to tuning - check out the Export section.

The cost involved of swapping one of these into your Jeep (and importing it and all its accessories) would be ridiculous though.

There is a guy on here who lives near me. He's putting a 4bt in his but it will be a trail only vehicle.

I would love my jeep if it was diesel

If I did I would consider a Cummins 4BT (4 cylinder version of the 6BT used in Dodge Rams.) They are durable, relatively easy to find but are very heavy.

What ever happened to the diesel WJ that was supposed to be here about a year ago?

He lives about 30 miles from me. I bought parts from him and asked about more stuff and he never answered.
