    Post this on the 60 Series Forum, and there are lots of options.

    84 FJ60? or 94FZJ80? assuming it is an 84 60, but if it was an 80 you would need to look for bigger engines. That is a lot heavier than a 60.

    Not to be snarky, but based on the ambiguity of your question, you are not ready for a diesel conversion. Not unless you have real deep pockets and can just throw money at it and have someone do all of the work for you.

    I really don't get you US guys.

    Here in Europe, we have much more diesels than you have, but it's not like it's a good thing.
    They are noisy and they stink. However, they do the job and are reliable (but there are plenty of bad running diesels too)
    But if petrol doesn't cost anything like in the US, why bother with a diesel?

    Haha stick your nose in the exhaust and tell me it smells like flowers.

    My diesel is running very well, and doesn't smoke at all. Pretty good for such an old diesel.
    However, it still stinks, but you would probably say it smells good. Most people would not.

    Anyway, the low-end noise of diesel is quite annoying when you want to do big roadtrips.
    Currently I'm trying to block this noise, so we can have bit more comfortable rides and do more mileage in a day.

    If you can have a petrol engine and petrol doesn't cost anything, why swap to a diesel?
    I'm thinking of swapping to petrol to get a smoother ride with more power and less noise. However, it will make it expensive to drive because of the fuel cost.
