Thanks! I'm running MTs, so I'm running the PSI to get the best wear characteristics. I use the Jeep for commuting into the city, but I also use it a lot in the mountains.

Do you have details on the engine swap somewhere? I've thought about similar swaps a few times, but I need to finish some other projects first.
I have a build thread on 4btswaps, but it got pretty nasty with people telling me it would never work, and then dogpiling when I got a bad engine that wouldn't handle the heat from the extra load and seized in the first 50 miles (have 20k on the swap now). I'm not too eager to link that...

A friend machined adapters for the stock flywheel and transmission for me, so it's original Jeep from the flywheel back, and the starter is also the original.

There are quite a few builds with these engines in the diesel engine conversions section of Diesel Bombers if you want to see builds and results without all of the muck.
