Yep. Don't do a swap and bank on fuel economy as the main justification. Do it for power and drive ability.

Rock - I see you've got a nice V8 in yours - who did the swap and what's your mileage/economy like?!

Default There's this guy...

You might want to chat with that guy at Adventure Off-road. I think his name is Robbie and I heard he knows a couple things about diesel engines and swaps. He drives a rig like this...

Ok, all joking aside, Robbie knows his stuff. Cruisers/swaps/diesel. If I were to do a diesel swap, he'd be the guy I'd want to do it.

I'm sure it would be a great conversation to talk to through that kind of conversion. I'm staying tuned as I've always dreamed about a diesel in my 60.

I would do a 1HZ or 1HZDT. pricy but for the weight of the 80 series, I would not put anything else in!
