Forget that. Theres quite a few yanks that have swapped in the Cummins 4bt - which is a nice fit - do a Google for "TJ 4bt".
Although I'd prefer the 5.9L 6BT over the 3.9L 4BT ;)

Hi I'm about to convert my 98 tj from 4.0 5 speed to a turbo diesel auto !! Im looking to buy a Toyota surf 3.0 (station wagon verson of a hilux) auto to swap in as there's loads of them been imported to the uk and there not as dear as a hilux !!
My advice to you is put what ever engine in your jeep that suits you & your needs
I'm swapping over to diesel as I use my jeep off road with loads of winching and water crossings so it gets a hard life and is always running hot & hate water the Toyota engine has plenty of power and much Cheeper to run
Good luck with your swap
Regards Joel

Iv seen a mitsubishi pajero engine & box in a TJ it's one of the few motors to have transfer box on left and a center tale same as Jeep TJ as most other makes are all on the right with off set rear diff just an idear as you have Pajero,s in AUS that's if you was going for engine & box swap as I am !!
