Just out of curiosity....diesel anyone??
 
I was just wondering if there is a diesel that could fit under the hood. I'm not looking to do it soon, but I was really curious. I can see where they make them for Canada, but I don"t see any engines for sale in the US. I just really like the fuel economy of most diesels, but I haven't found any good info on a 4.0L replacement that's diesel. The closest was a 3.0L that I could only find in Canada, or the 2.8L engine that was in the Liberty diesel. I really don't think that a 5.9L or 6.0 cummins would fit well under the hood even though I did see a pic of it on the net. :confused:

A friend of mine is putting in the latest tech small 4 cyl Cummins diesel with matching Allison box into his 2008 Nissan Patrol to replace the pathetic standard 3.0L TD. However, it is a $40k job to do it to factory type standards, and to be honest, I would simply either a. buy a WK diesel or b. buy a WJ factory diesel

I was wondering if there is like a crate diesel engine that would go in the jeep without spend a bunch of money on it.

^^^^^^^in europe, the WJ could be had with a diesel. maybe other places as well./

i think there may be one or 2 here, maybe look over the diesel thread.

point is if the factory did it, you could duplicate it without much custom fab work.

anything else MAY need custom mounts as well as electronics etc.
