Diesel Swap FAQ - Diesel swappers Start here -


Alot of the same questions get posted all too often about Diesel swaps So here’s a Tech page for those Newbie or wanna be diesel FSJ conversion guys: If you have suggestions or additions please email me or jeepinpete and we will get it added.



Consider what you type in your title use a 4- letter name for your engine ie.


"Chevy 6.2" vs 6.2 or GM 6.2
"4bta" or "cummins 4bta" vs 4bt
"Ford diesel" "Ford 7.3 Diesel" vs 7.3 or 6.9




Diesel drivetrain options, debates about various engine choices:



A Diesel debate #1
A Diesel debate #2
Diesel opinions, Poll and Swap discussion Ford 7.3L and 6.9L discussion and debate
Pros and cons of different suggestions
Yes your Frame will handle it but…
