A 2015 diesel will be worth so much in about 8-10 years because it will be so rare

I do not see it happening. (IFS)
If it does the aftermarket will be all over it with a solid axle conversion.
Scary thought, if it does happen the JK will be the last true Jeep!

Commented there - but piecemeal adaptation is the wrong way to go about this. Leave the body alone, modify the frame PRN, go with a Dieselectric drivetrain and four drive motors (1/wheel) and do it bloody RIGHT!

A piecemeal repair is how we got saddled with PPACA/Obamacare, and we all know how that is coming out...
