I have an 85 XJ with a dying tf904 and a dead 2.8l v6 my question is should I spend the time and money on building a v6 and rebuilding the 904 or should I go for a SBC with a th350? I plan on upgrading the axels someday but all at once is beyond my monetary limits. Any suggestions?

I'd go SBC given the option. But I would not go TH350. Go at least TH400, it's a better tranny. Or you could go TH700...they are pretty common at junk yards these days.

I voted for the 350...but I'd really like to see a small turbo diesel in a Jeep.

It's been done E...although they are kinda rare. A 2.1L Turbo Diesel was an option for XJ's in 85-87, and a 2.5L Turbo Diesel was used in some overseas XJs.

I would like to see it done again though. Mr. Green
