Cummins in a jeep?

O I have a 2008 keep grand Cherokee larado, and I was wondering if their is any way that a cummins motor earthier 6.7 or 5.9 would fit safely in the motor bay of my jeep. If not I'm also considering on swapping out the v6 for a 6.1 srt8. Suggestions?!???

i've heard of the 5.9L cummins in the jk but many people put the 3.9L cummins in the yjs, tjs, and it will fit in that engine bay

Can you and should you..... are two totally different questions. I personally don't think the JGC unibody is strong enough to hold up to the stress of a Cummins... There is a reason why the 5.9 was only put in 2500 or larger trucks.

Yeah it was just a thought I came up with the other night before I went to bed. So I figured I would ask some knowledgeable folks of the forums haha. It would be kind of bad *** in my eyes if it would work. They're ways to make the unibody stronger to with hold some stress. I just want it to be different, sometimes haul crap up north, and haul a ton of apples around the local farmers markets.

Like you, I have a love for the Cummins 5.9..... add a JGC and I'm in Heaven.... Unfortunately, it was never ment to be. If Jeep had offered a diesel in a JGC when I bought mine, I'd bought it.
