Cummins 4bt jeep
First trail run after build-up of my jeep with a Cummins 4BT engine. This was at Moab this year at the Easter Jeep Safari. Not a very good video, but somebody wanted to see it actually move. First jeep (white) is a stock wheelbase, whereas mine is stretched to 105"(12" stretch). Second part shows me killing it trying out different gears on the climb.

93' Suburban 4x4 Cummins 4BT conversion 26 MPG!
The Suburban ran great and had fun driving it. The motor has excellent torque and driveability. pressure. The Exhaust is a 3" with a basic diesel muffler. Just took on a 1,900 mile trip and got the best of 26 MPG! That is without an Intercooler but will get one soon. Go to 4btswaps.com to see other vehicles like this.
I do not recommend this engine swap for an everyday driver only because of the vibrations are to shaky. If I were to do it again I would install a 5.9 Cummins. Again, the power and torque were not an issue and the fuel mileage increase definitely paid off but the vibrations at idle took some of the fun out of it. Just my opinion is all....
However, I wouldn't hesitate to install a 3.9 in a toy like a jeep.
