Diesel conversions/crate diesel engines for a TJ

Hey gang. Lookin' for some solid information on converting a TJ to a diesel engine. Anyone have a site or a link for crate diesel engines that fit in jeeps?

Mopar was supposed to offer the only crate diesel conversion. It was the 2.8L formerly used in the KJ's. But that was before they went bankrupt.

Other than that, there is no 'crate' conversion. Its all custom fab work. It has also been done many times and if you do a search on this forum you'll find tons of info.
