Default Jeep 2.8L Diesel Conversion Kit

I've been reading in a few magazines now that Jeep Performance Division is looking into the idea of creating and selling a kit to convert your Jeep to a diesel using the engine from the Liberty CRD. It's supposedly going to be offered in varying stages of completeness and top out at around $12K...

Anyone know anymore about this being a reality?

I think this would make a lot of Wrangler and Cherokee owners VERY happy.

You can go the 4BT route, but the nice thing about this is that it's all brand new stuff and it's everything you'll need to install the motor. EVERYTHING. Plus this is a lot lighter, has the newest technology and from what I read it'll pass most state emission inspections.

that's actually a pretty good price to get EVERYTHING necessary and have it all brand new. everyone I've talked to about 6bt CR swaps say $8-14k depending on trans and mods; and that's with a used engine. is this kit officially available yet?

I have this condition, where I perceive OEM parts as insufficient and in need of aftermarket replacement; maybe that mindset just stems from the domestic vehicles that I've owned.

I was just reading an article in my 4wor mag while on the throne, and I saw this very thing.. after a lil research, seems as though its a 10-12k full "plug & play" swap.

Further googling shows the engine was originally sourced from the military TJL. This is a simple version of the Liberty CRD diesel without the EGR, AC, and Viscous heater. The engine is electronically injected however using a bosch CRD, CP3 pump, system.

Looks like BD Power, Quadzilla, Edge TS and a few others all have performance modules for this engine putting out from 20hp up..

Like Johnny said, with this package being so light.. seems like it would be a great mileage getter or a nice swap for that rock crawler looking for a lightweight torque monster to put in front of dual cases and some Dana 60's.

It will definately be something to keep our eyes on for that next diesel conversion..

And AFAIK Jeep is still considering making this available. If you're interested give them an email and let them know.

Bought my 99 Cherokee for 1000$ including the stock Diesel engine.

But needed a little bit more than TLC.
