    I don't know what Texas shops are doing it ...........yet.
    But I know the ones done up north in Pennsylvania and the ones done in Tampa Florida are getting MIN 30+ mpg (factory axles and gearing).
    You can easily bolt up a cummins 4BT with a dodge or ford trans and adapter plates. the rest is done by welding in proper motor mounts and a new ecm along with new wiring for gauges. Im lookin for a shop that does it in North Texas so if u see one let me know. Im a diesel tech and I am looking to go to work for that kind of shop. Jeep on!!!

    The 5.9 is way to heavy for a YJ, Go for the 3.9 4BT. I make engine mounts specifically for this swap, check them out.
