    That would be an interesting conversion. Things that come to mind first would be weigh so don't forget upgrading your leaf springs and etc. A Cummins 3BT (like some mail trucks use) weighs 550 lbs I want to say, and the drive train. There is no way a stock setup would withstand the torque.

    They just came out with a 4bt replacement, saw it on a dirt everyday video. Look up the vid it was a diesel vs stock vs v8 jeep

    There is an outfit in Georgia called Shade Tree Mechanics that sells a set of plans (very general) on how to swap a tractor diesel into a truck. Great economy and dependability.

    My buddy had a toyota diesel motor sent over from Australia. Put it in his 85 4Runner. He's been running that for 12 years of so now. He likes it.
