Diesel in 87 wrangler
Has any one put a Isuzu diesel engine into a 87 YJ??? I found a Isuzu diesel engine model 4BD1t for sale. I would like to put it in, but don't know if others have done this?? I can get better gas milage and have access to cheap bio-diesel. Any thoughts on what it would take to complete the task??

trying to help
I did some looking around in the past on this subject i didn't find much though. this first link is for another forum. 4cyl diesel source [Archive] - Pirate4x4.Com Bulletin Board

this one is the only pics i found of a wrangler with a diesel in it. 1993 Jeep Wrangler YJ Cummins Diesel - Diesel Trucks - Diesel Power Magazine

Seeing as how a diesel is the only true engine (powerstroke) i would really like to see how this works out for you.
