Excellent! One thing I hate about living in NY is these diesel swaps are nearly impossible on vehicles that have not rusted into oblivion.

Very neat that you are pushing 30MPG with it. Wonder if the fuel mileage will get better with the more powerful 617 swap. I know the 617 are somewhat popular in the Jeep community.

I thought the Astros were a unibody / "uniframe" design similar to the unibody Cherokees / Grand Cherokees? But you did a body lift and the body is completely removed in the one picture.

Did you divide by zero and body lift a unibody vehicle??? Haha.

My guess is it's some sort of hybrid unibody / full frame like a Jeep Comanche?
