Ever since i was young i had dreams of doing a diesel swap in a jeep wrangler, I bought my 1997 jeep 3 years ago now and drove it the way i had bought it with the small lift and 33's on it for a year, while saving money and buying parts for the swap a little at a time.  Before i even bought a Jeep i run across a amazing deal on my dream motor for what i had always wanted to do. That $850 investment started my whole jeep fascination lol. Heres  some bits and pieces of building my Jeep (Ginger).

It started out as a regular jeep with few small mods, lift kit, 33's, wheels winch, aluminum bumpers and a detroit tru trac.

I saved money and started hoarding up parts in my shop and in no time after selling a four wheeler i had a good pile of goodies.
I spent months doing research on swapping everything over, i had all major necessities and wiring schematics. oh and the ups lady probably hated my guts cause nothing was light.

parts were

cummins 4bt 3.9l
nv4500 out of a 1998 Dodge 2500
built ford 8.8 from east coast gear supply
hpd30 out of a 1998 jeep cherokee, i freshened up seals in it, put gussets and trussed it. (and since put alloy ball joints in it, axle sleeves, aussie locker, and good u joints due to a wreck)

poison spyder ricochet rockers
currie currectlync steering
dodge durango steering box
1.5" spyder trax wheel spacers

and a few more small goodies i'm sure i've forgot
