No, why would some one if your talking about the old 350 OLDS engine, that was converted into a Diesel that was the worst thing GM ever did, it was worst than a Vega.

check out the V3 jeep shop in KY. They put a diesel engine from a airport jeep into a scrambler recently.

The GM 350 cu in diesel was an abortion. You don't want this engine. However, it's common for people to mistype ads, so call the seller, and make an inquiry.

Physically, yes. (You can install a V10 dodge engine in one. It's been done.) However the electronics to make it run, will need to be sourced from the XJ. That typed, I'm not familiar with an XJ diesel engine. Yes, the Liberty had a diesel for a few years. Buy a Cherokee? Don't remember that one.

I agree, I owned one for a week, after that week it was replaced with a 350 rocket. Best thing that motor ever did is give me added weight in the back of the truck.
