    I am thinking about taking a late 90s Jeep Cherokee and putting a diesel motor and drivetrain in it. Any suggestions on a diesel motor? Thinking a 4 cylinder motor. Or there may be a better motor cylinder configuration.

    This truck is going to be like a trail truck. Although not lifted high or super big tires. It will have lots of highway miles put on it. A range of about 300+ miles is needed (with 1/4 fuel remaining). This would be for the mountain adventures in the state of Washington.

    Thank you,
    Mike
