1981 jeep wrangler diesel

Hi guys. Hope someone can help. In Egypt and am thinking of buying a jeep wrangler, advertised as 1981 built. It has a diesel 2litre turbo. Can any one tell me the make of engine as I've only seen a picture so far. This vehicle is possibly built in Egypt under license. Any help would be appreciated.

81 would be a CJ, wrangler didn't come around till 1987. As for the diesel....could be an isuzu engine.. not sure though...

I have heard that Renault diesels were put in and they are gutless but reliable.

Back in the early 80s AMC was in bed with Renault so it would be a Renault engine.
