|richp||I love it, wonder how it will stand emissions wise, it's not like you can sneak a jeep thru that sounds like that and telling the inspector it just has a bad knock will only work till they pop the hood...|

"Many jeepers have been waiting anxiously to swap a diesel into their Jeep. Their low-end torque and trail driveability, not to mention their fuel economy, has put diesels at the top of many jeepers wish list.
The wait is almost over! Jeep Performance, a division of Mopar Performance, is working on a stand-alone diesel engine swap kit to drop the 2.8 diesel that first appeared in the Jeep Liberty into your TJ, YJ, CJ, or? While we'll have more details (and maybe a photo or two) after Jeep Safari in Moab, this is the real deal and is going to happen. Everything needed to install the diesel mill into a Jeep will come with the kit - including a stand-alone wiring harness and non-EGR motor! You may have heard that some Liberty diesels had problems that were caused by a malfunctioning Exhaust Gas Recirculation system. The Jeep Performance diesel swap kit's 2.8 diesel doesn't have the troublesome EGR, so expect it to be problem-free. We'll get you more information when we get it. Stay tuned..."
Now if I can get a kit to bolt up to my NV4500

Diesel crate engine
Read in Diesel Power Mag, that MOPAR.COM is going to release a diesel engine swap kit for 97-06 Jeep Wranglers. Details to be released at MOAB Easter Jeep Safari. Motor is a 2.8L VM Motori four cyl, like what was in the Liberty. Hope it happens.
