I herd they were having a lot of problems with the 2.8L diesel.
Bad enough to were people were using the "lemon law" to return and break leases on 2.8L diesels that kept breaking down.
But I believe most problems were turbo and electrical related. So the simpler version of the 2.8 might work great.

The 6.5L chevy diesel swap is fairly popular to jeepers also.
