That 6 is a HUGE engine! I had to get a body lift just to get close to closing my hood.

It's really not that bad. It's a little longer but not as wide. I think it's a perfect match. It's all in the finess.

You got pics of yours or a link to it?

Found this exhaust manifold while surfing around. Should be able to move the turbo closer to the front away from the heater box. Would have to flip it upside down. Sure they make one that points down. Otherwise I could hack to stock one up and modify it.

What size tire do you plan to use with these? Even with 40's, 70mph would be top speed with the 6BT screaming. Maybe an overdrive box after the NV4500

Why would I want to go over 70? 60-65 is plenty. 40-42 tire. Haven't decided.

Got the engine set down pretty much where it will sit. Need to get the tranny on before I can make the mounts and lock it in. Had to remove the heater box and a few other things to get it to fit. Will work on final placement this week. Here are some shots of the engine.

While I was taking the heater box out decided to go ahead and rip the carpet out. No surprise I knew it was there. Will need some replacement floor pans. Anyone know the best place to get them?

Not completely sure but I think it is from the 5.9 common rail. 2002+ models.

Transmissions

I've been loosely thinking of doing a 6bt swap in my 83 cherokee. you got rid of your tf 727, but i want to keep mine. Do the bolt patterns match? Or does the nv4500 just completely make it worth it.

727 hasno overdrive. I have a 5 speed getrag. The nv4500 is good but I think (from searching and reading) the getrag is just as good. I got a good deal locally too.

The diesel bellhousing is different bolt pattern. Not sure about input, output shafts, or internals

I made my decision to go with a 4BTA instead of a 6BT because I didnt want to deal with clearance issues, but it doesnt look like you had any. I also intend to use an underdash HVAC set up.
