6.2 diesel swap help

someone out here in jeep land has done this swap.
I need to know all the specifics if that is possible.
My 6.2 suburban has decided to eat the tranny housing so I am left with either buying a tranny or doing this swap into a FSJ.
Advance adapters told me this was a pipe dream.
Please help me get in touch with the answer man.

Don't listen to Advance, they're for people who can't make their own adapters .

I don't know anything about the swap but I do know that several people have done it with good results. Have you tried searching?

look for ohioJ20, as well as several others... if you search for his posts, you will find plenty of other people who are doing, done, or planning this swap.


kinda funny, the guys who made a fortune putting small blocks into jeeps telling you it is 'too hard' to put a 90 deg. chevy v8 (with the same bellhousing as an SBC or BBC or 4.3, and the same motor mounts and locations as the SBC / etc.) in a jeep... maybe there is no hope for america after all...
There is no way to rule innocent men.
The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals.
Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them.
One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

I'm dead in the middle of my swap.
Working great....helps with a full parts rig. I got a 700R4 and Advance makes an adapter for my Q-trac case.
I have found that motor mounts are really close to the same as the small block chevy. Bj's has a conversion mount kit that I am going to try.
My motor came back from the machine shop last week and I'm building it late at night when the temp goes down.

Ohioj20 did a great write up as listed in this tread.
the 6.2 is pretty heavy so I am beefing up my shocks and putting an add a leaf on the front packs. Any questions Pm me
