Diesel engine swap in '96 wrangler
Hey guys i have a 96 wrangler with a 4.0l and want to put a diesel engine in it. I know it would be easier to just buy a new one but i have already spent to much on this one to sell it. Was wondering if anyone has done this before or could give me some advice on engine and costs?
Are you sure your jeep isn't a 97? Jeep didn't make a 96 wrangler. The 10th digit in your VIN will tell you what year it is.
S - 1995
T - 1996
V - 1997
Anyways. There have been many diesel engine swaps into Jeeps. The most common is the Cummins 4BT. It is a 3.9L turbo diesel that is found mostly in Frito-Lay vans, bread vans and other step vans. It produces 130 hp and 355 lb·ft of torque depending on the engine model.
Do a search for threads started by reevesdieselyj. He has a few threads on his 4BT engine swap.
yeah its definitely a 96 model. I live in australia so i don't know if that makes a difference but they definitely made a 96 model over hear because i can get parts for it.
Is it possible to put a new jeep diesel into it at all?
