Default Transmission/engine swap

I am looking to swap the 3.0 diesel AND transmission from the 08 Jeep Grand Cherokee into a Sprinter for the purpose of flat towing. Has this been completed or in the process?

Welcome to the forum!

I'm confused. Doesn't your Sprinter already have a 3.0L diesel and how would an engine swap (very difficult, if it can even be done) help towing? And what is it you need to tow since towing capacity is already limited by any extra weight of your class b conversion?

More info please.

Personally, I can't imagine trying to marry in Fiat designed controls into a Mercedes designed vehicle with all the MB faults and "can't do's".

that's ninja level and the electronic controls would be the hard part

you may also have trouble with emissions testing if that is a non-native block
