Custom Rock Buggy Needs a Diesel....

I've got a buddy that wants to build a fairly large and aggressive rock buggy, that's equally streetable...
so far, we've got it boiled down to 5T axles, on MRAP 20"x10" wheels with 44" Goodyear G117 tires for now...originally he *wanted* to go with a LT1 corvette motor, so, after talking to a few paranoid "omg the world is ending" types, he wants to do a mechanical diesel, but, yet, has no clue what motor to go with....which is where it comes in hoping that I can find some guidance on here....once I know what motor to look into, I can figure out the transmission (something that I can put a 6 speed on, that's got a very good overdrive 6th gear....since it seems that gearing won't be my friend with those axles....)

any guidance would be immensely helpful....since I'm quite clueless when it comes to diesels...(other than knowing that they're HEAVY and lack the RPM's to make up for the forced gearing change)
