Another diesel conversion??

I was wondering if anyone has any info on a cherokee diesel from over seas? They use the VM2.5 turbo diesels. I was on ebay and did a little searching in UK and found a couple really good deals if I could get there and look at them. There is a guy here near me that imports Land Rovers from the UK from time to time and I thought about talking to him and seeing what it would take to get some room in his container to bring it across the pond. I haven't found very much info on them. I think that it would be a great swap. So now I was wondering what it might take to get one here and see what it would take to install the engine into my TJ. Although a really nice diesel Cherokee would be a sweet ride as well.

Any info or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks Dave
