This is my vehicle to drive to school in two years. It's lifted on 35" BFGoodrich Mud Terrains, has the stock inline but itll be swapped with a 4bt Cummins as soon as I get enough money. I'm swapping because the inline caught on fire once, lol, plus I'll get great mpg and veggie oil!

Have fun with the veggie oil, that stuck gums it up, and if you let it sit it turns into pudding.

Yeah I wouldn't suggest using running it on oil. The 4bt is gonna get 30-40mpg like it is. Unless you own like a restruint are something where you get mass mass shipment of it every week.

stay away from bio-diesel or veg oil... bad news, especially in an older diesel. ruins the rubber seals, gums everything up, and in time will turn into "pudding". no bueno

My brother runs veggie oil in his 92 Cummins, and 97 Cummins. No problems.

Smells good.

There's more than one way to skin a cat, and at least that many ways to burn WVO in your diesel engine. Many people have had much success. Do your homework, and you'll be fine. Jeep looks good, but man, you have NO clearance. I'd be looking into a mild lift with those tires.

Personally I'd rebuild the six... There damn good a torqey to. Lol had one is a 83 Cherokee two door 4x4 on 33s and had plenty enough torque to do what it had to do

Doc, thanks and yes im gunna lift it more and i may have to replace the axles cause of the torque of the Cummins. GC I want to put in the Cummins for veggie oil or, if my dad can contact the guy again, get free diesel from the big tank that my dad puts his diesel in.
