    i can only image the vast and overwhelming about of crap that would have to be done for a conversion of that magnatude! I have thought about it myself. I do know of a guy here in Oregon that has done a couple gas to diesel conversions and has a small side business of doing it. It's just not in my future, or the Jeeps future. If you want I can get his number and such to ya, but like I said, I'm in Oregon.

    Jeff Daniels is a shop out in PA. They put 4bt's in for a nice chunk of change. Sure sounds nice though

    You could always take a 6.2 out of an old army blazer. Its basically a Chevy 350 block modified for diesel.
