Diesel conversion

K guys, truth time.


I wanna do a 4BT with NV4500 conversion on my 95. Someone told me I would not have any high speed (all I need is up to 75mph if possible)

I'm interested in getting the torque and mpg.

What are your thoughts?

There is a whole forum website for just that. 4btswaps.com. They could tell you all about it. But I've drove one with a 4bt in it. I took off down the highway and I was doin 80mph before I knew it. It was on 35's. It had stock AX5, yes AX5 tranny and stock axles. I'm pretty sure they don't even need an ECU to run. The owner of the one I drove said he gets 30+ mpg most of the time. He can pretty much idle up steep trails.

Yep, my cousin just finished his swap into a 99 Durango. He did alot or reading on the same site and it goes down the Hwy just fine getting 26 mpg. Not bad considering that the Durango is pretty heavy.

I almost bought a wrangler with a 4bt in it. Didn't have the money at the time but it was bad ass. I would definitely do it if you have the time and money.

I was just asking about this same type swap, (yes sorry I shoulda used search feature first I know better.)
Glad I found this info because there's a 2014 Unlimited with swamped engine on e bay right now that I've had my eye on.
That would be the cats a$$ in a Jeep, regardless of the year... Can't imagine it'd be much longer that would be a factory option, how come only the Germans are pushing them?!?

I live in an E check county on Ohio an if you get a commercial plate you don't have to do e check. It's about $75 more a year though.
