4 cylinder Cummins, but thats a waste of time. 383 Chevy crate and bolt on some multi port fuel injection.

Maybe he wants to not have to worry about carbs, and radical approach angles?

You can do the Cummins, but prepare to beef up the front end A BUNCH. Its a heavy ass motor. The Liberty is gettin a nice diesel in a year or two, look for it in a Wrangler about a year after that.

Buy one of those crappy early 80's GM V8 diesel engines, it will bolt right up using the normal V8 bolt on stuff.

Do a search for "Hercules Diesel" and "M-715" or "M-37." The DOD did some conversions (using the above mentioned motor w/ related accessories as a QEC) way back when. Some surplus company has a few kits on hand. All Jeeps shared the same class of motor (s) over the years so fitting should not be a problem.

Also, look for "CJ-10," "Jeep tug," "USAF aircraft tug," or some variation of that, because there is such a thing as 2WD Nissan SD-33 diesel 6 cyl. powered tugs cruising around Air Force bases (I saw one today). Essentially a CJ frame with a pickup-type body (complete with removable top) and a short service bed. Have a look at "eBay" or "Government Liquidators" (contractors to dispose of surplus equipment). BTW, it's the same diesel -with turbo- that's in the diesel powered International Scouts: 1977 thru 1980.
