Default Diesel Swap?

Anyone know of people swapping in diesel motors to replace the 4.0's? If so which vehicles would be the donors? I've tried to find info on diesel jeeps but it seems to be very sparse.


Help me out!


Joe

I put a 6 cyl cummins in a f250. It was not that bad. Just another project! It took about a month once I got parts. Good luck!
