Too bad he's not gonna be towing much of anything. Those are probably C-rated tires. The sidewall won't support what the motor and chassis are capable of pulling.

Re: Now here\'s a tow rig!!!

What a great swap. Nothing sweeter than clatter of a Cummins diesel. I have seen one in a CJ but I think its just a little too heavy for a jeep, but it would be cool! I bought a Dodge Cummins Turbo Diesel last year and have been very pleased with. Tons of power that yanks my little jeep along like it was not even there. I don't even listen to the radio so I can enjoy the purr of that diesel.

Re: Now here\'s a tow rig!!!

A friend of mine did the same swap into an '85 Chevy dually about 10 years ago. It's a great puller.

I read the thread and like the comment from one guy about Ford owning Cummins. He must not be much of a Cummins afficianado because Ford sold their ~20% share of Cummins years ago.
