That is a Toyota 2C Diesel Engine. 2.0 mated to a transmission out of early rear wheel drive Toyota Corolla. The 2C engine is not hard to mate to the original gear box but the engine itself requires a lot of changes for example different facing oil pump, a custom made sump, an altered flywheel and if you do manage to get it all to fit. The drive train doesn't really cope well with the diesel's low end torque. Sudden excitement with the accelerator usually follows with a loud pop and there goes a u-joint. Forget the welding and cutting in the body to make it fit aswell.
To understand what is going on here. Culturally, if it looks like a jeep. It is a jeep and hence can go anywhere. The idea of a working 4x4 is very hard for people to fathom. Most of these jeeps are for road use and ricer show. Off-road capability is the least concern. So as you can see the Jeep is overly riced...ahem... Decorated yet is useless off the pavement.
