big dreams, shallow pockets

Whats up everyone im new here. just bought my 3rd jeep and im gonna build her. ive owned a 95 yj, 2011 jku sahara, and im back to an 87 yj (Roxxxi) currently. im in the military in Cali and due to smog laws and simple lack of time, im having her shipped back to jersey to get built by family and good friends.
MY QUESTION IS- 7.3 powerstroke in a yj, has it been done? (my search has yielded nothing) and if not, how can it be done? engine bay modifications, rigging the suspension to hold the weight, axle swap, frame reinforcement, Im sure those'll come into play. What are yalls thoughts? comments, questions, concerns, anything would be much appreciated.

...also yes, I know the engine alone weighs half a ton and it wont be super trail capable. but its a jeep thing, yall understand
