I'm interested in the adapter to the tranny and which starter do you use?

here is an article I found on Mopar working on a diesel in a box. Even if it has to come from Mopar and I have to pay someone to put it in for me it is certainly worth it. I would really like to see the 2010 Wrangler that is an EV have diesel with the EV (electric vehicle)

I've been waiting for Jeep to offer a diesel in their production wrangler line for many years. Of course there was the brief GC offering, but was largely ignored by management (not the public).
There are many ways for Jeep to outfit a diesel into the Jeep lineup. Most economical would be to go with a proven diesel engine builder like they do with their Ram HD lineup - Cummins.
I have owned several diesels over the last few decades, including my current VW Jetta TDI and Ram 2500HD QC Diesel, and formerly a F250HD PSD. I'll never own a gasoline car again. VW is on track with it's TDI expansion. Of all the alternative gas fuels out there, Diesel is the only one already in place for mass delivery to consumers. It would take decades and billions of tax dollars to get many of the proposed other alternative fuel delivery systems in place.
Let's go Jeep, get diesels in your vehicles already! If Jeep could put a Wrangler with a factory diesel on that sad looking Dodge/Jeep lot tomorrow, I'd buy one in an instant.

The really ironic and frustrating thing is that if you buy a Jeep in the UK, the only Wrangler engine available is a diesel.

I live on reservation land in NY, as I listen outside my people are chanting: We want rubicon diesel, we want rubicon diesel, we want rubicon diesel!
So Jeep we beg of you, the US government has taken our land, our pride, and our horses but please Jeep you can at least give us a rubicon diesel!

I know you posted about doing diesel conversions on jeeps a long time ago but are you still considering doing the job? I have an 06 wrangler x with the 6 cylinder motor now and have been looking into the cummins 4bt swap for some time now. The main thing holding me back is that im not sure im mechanically inclined enough to do everything properly to where it will last and be reliable everyday. Please contact me at aaron_nshhotmail.com if you are willing to help me out or point me in the direction of someone who can. I live in ft wayne indiana but would possibly be willing to send my jeep somewhere to have the work done depending on distance and cost and all that.

Ditto for me. The worst thing to happen to Chrysler was for Dr Z to pay Cerberus $6.5B to take Chrysler... the reason this was bad is Dieter was the ONLY one at the top there who believed in diesels in America.

#90 of 91 I got one: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Diesel [tom62]

OK so I have had some diesel LR 110's and most recently got a used Rubicon Diesel for the equivalent of $38,000. Have recently sold it in Nevada. new owner had no trouble transferring title there. I am curious if there are any buyers at that price. With no financing of course. I believe a slightly older model can be bought for several K's less but would still be in the $30's after import costs etc.
