Cummins swap

Has anyone done a CUMMINS diesel swap on to their JEEP? I spoke to a company out of Southern California that dose the SRT conversion (6.1L engine) but the other day I was thinking of how much FUN and Powerful a DIESEL engine would be in a JEEP. Has anyone seen this done?

The 2.8L CRD might be a bit easier.

If your talking dodge 2500 or 3500 cummings, then get a whole new drive line, as it will toast your stock one.
