To any of you crazy SoBs already swapping in big V8s and such, keep me in mind. I'd like a spare motor to tinker with.

PM me if you have one.

Probably won’t happen. Defeats the reasons people buy. Old style Jeep with a Diesel engine. You might look at finding a Mahindra 40 -50 hp tractor engine.

I sure af wouldn't do it. You wouldn't do it, but you would be surprised what people do to Jeeps. lol

I will say buying a Roxor is FAR cheaper and easier than restoring a vintage Jeep. If you're looking at restoring an Early CJ5, and doing all the usual mods to it (that the Roxor already has), then the process is even that much more costly. In that light, I think we'll actually have a surplus of these engines, and likely transmissions, in the coming years. I want to get one running with a 4BT VE pump, so I do want this actual engine to make sure no assumptions are made during the conversion.
