A lighter diesel like a Cummins B3.3 is a better option. A 4BT weighs twice as much as the stock 4.0L, whereas the B3.3 is about the same weight as the stock 4.0L. Search for redsmoke's build "lil green bean". He reported 27+ mpg on 37" tires.

A small kubota or Cat would be cool too but those are probably pretty pricey to get ahold. No diesel swap is cheap though. A CRD from a Liberty or Grand Cherokee would be simpler since you could get the harnesses with it, but those are serious money there. I wouldn't do a 4bt swap even if I got the motor free just because of the weight.

I would love to do a diesel swap, but considering how little I know about motors and how well the stock 4.0 works, I'll probably never do an engine swap.

If this engine hits the fan, I'll either go Stroker or Diesel, depending on how much time and money I have.

Good news is I believe I found the source of my death wobble:

My guess would be that you'll have neither if it goes anytime soon.

I have 4 extra 4.0s, so if mine goes I'll take the free replacement option...

Get stroked. I would say that would cause death wobble for sure. Did the bolt shear off?

I hope he was trying to show a picture of a worn out poly bushing. The absense of a lower control arm would cause a lot more than death wobble!

Nope, Alan was correct, although I have no idea if it sheared or the nut backed off. It was a ***** driving and went sharp right under braking.
