Question about 1987 Jeep Wrangler
Anything is possible and you could use a later model cheroke diesel motor or even a ford diesel out of a late model transit but to tell you the truth the money it will cost you it will not equal the amount you will save unless you keep the car for 20years,
the best option in my opinion would be to get a good lpg gas kit fitted with the right tune you will easily get that fuel consumption and it will be alot cheaper up front and in the long run.
please leave feedback.

Well besides a ton of work. what is the diesel engine. i didnt think that jeep made to many of those if any. you are better off getting a truck that already is a diesel and save alot of time and money. which in the long run could be cheaper to buy a used truck that runs.
as for the swap you may have to buy need motor mounts or have special ones made to fit the mounts. then you got the fuel system and tank and since the diesel is alot more pressure you will have to change the lines and find a pump that will work, more money. then you need to get the wire harness changed to efi to the diesel and hope it works after modify to fix the truck. the if you moved to motor and trany from the stuck postion you will need new driveshafts. and then you got the radiator to get changed and if the new motor wieghts more you may have to change to springs in the front to keep the old ride hieght. told you it would be a ton of work.
