96 Lexus LX-450 swap to diesel (1 Viewer)

I have a 96 LX-450 in really good shape and would like very much to swap the tired gas motor for a Toyota diesel. I have found a donor vehicle for sale at a reasonable price - a rusted '92 Land Cruiser VX Limited Turbo diesel [RHD - originally from Japan] that is in very good mechanical condition w/152,000 mi on it. Never done a diesel swap - has anyone out there done something similar to this? What kind of nightmares am I possibly getting into? Any advice is very welcome and much appreciated. Thanks!
