I love the idea of a new crate Diesel (R2.8) but it's a $9000 motor that makes 160HP and 267lb/ft. Then add mounts, cooling, exhaust, trans adapter, and fuel pump and you're pushing $12k. I think it's a little weak for a >4500# GWag. To me the R2.8 is great for CJs, YJs, and TJs but a FSJ needs more torque/power.

You can do a pretty sweet 5.7L Hemi/trans swap for half that and end up with much more power and torque.

I think your 4BTA is better suited for our big trucks and it would be pretty awesome.
