At 14 I was very fortunate to have a mentor who sparked my love of Jeeps driving the WWII Willys up in the mountains. Then being first introduced to the well engineered OM617 Mercedes Turbo Diesel engine by my father in-law back in the early 80's. After my son purchased his first Mercedes 240D that ran on WVO (waste vegetable oil) and fuel prices hitting $4.00 a gallon, we were inspired in 2010 to attempt to build a Jeep with the OM617 diesel engine. As we documented the build on the internet (diesel bombers website) we ended up with four customers waiting for our adapter kit. We are a family business who drives what we build and strives to provide quality conversion products, specially designed for the Mercedes OM617 turbo diesel engine family in 4x4 applications.
