    buy a 2L-tII or something similiar and then pull the old 22re and drop in new diesel. It really isnt very hard to do these. I have swapped many different gas engines in the toyota trucks and 4runners, I found the diesel swap to be no more challenging than putting a 350 v8 in the rigs.
    If you know a little about wiring and you can pull an engine then you should be able to get thru the conversion.
    Good Luck.
