Cummins 2.8 Crate Engine

Diesel Crate Engines

Not all diesel crate engines are "crated" equally. When critical components such as fuel pumps, filters, accessories, starters, and flywheels are not included in your engine package, you have to piece them together from the various manufacturer and hope for the best. For the vehicle specific components not included with the Cummins R2.8 crate engine, such as motor mounts and cooling packages, we've included a thorough installation guide and owner’s toolkit, as well as on-call support from 866-888-6111. A team of dedicated diesel crate engine enthusiasts is standing by to help. Get a Cummins 2.8 Crate Engine today at Colorado Standby! We offer fast and free shipping on all orders.

Base Warranty – Owner is responsible for all labor expenses related to service under this Warranty.

This Warranty covers any failure of the Engine or loose components supplied with the engine kit which result, under normal use and service, from a defect in material or factory workmanship “(Warrantable Failure”).

Coverage begins upon the date of delivery of the Engine to the first owner and runs for 2 years/2,600 hours.

This Warranty is made to all owners in the chain of distribution and coverage continues to all subsequent owners until expiration of the period of coverage. 

Complete detailed warranty information is included with the engine documentation. 


The R2.8 Turbo Diesel crate engine is NOT a direct bolt-in engine replacement for any specific vehicle.  Before purchasing, considerations should be made for cooling package modifications, air conditioning, appropriate transmission pairing and adaptability, engine mounting, intake and charge air cooler plumbing, wiring integration and other mechanical/electrical modifications that may arise when undergoing a major vehicle modification. It is recommended that all major vehicle modifications are performed by professionals. 

*Installation of a crate engine does not necessarily increase the vehicle's original payload and towing ratings. Please read all emissions information for the desired part number prior to purchase as Federal emissions laws apply.

**Printed materials may be shipped separately at a different date than the crate engine shipment.


The Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel (PN 5467036) crate package is not CARB-approved at this time.

Due to state/provincial law restrictions, these engines are not currently available for purchase in the state of Texas, state of West Virginia or the province of Quebec. Warranty service with respect to the engines and loose components will not be available in the states of Texas and West Virginia.

The Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel (PN 5467036) has demonstrated through the testing procedures prescribed in 40 CFR Part 86 to meet EPA’s Tier 0 (LDT 1 and 2) and Tier 1 emissions standards (LDT 2 weighing less than 4000 lb complete weight). This means that the R2.8 generally is suitable for Model Year 1999 or earlier light duty trucks. However, the suitability of the R2.8 engine to any vehicle is the responsibility of the installer and may depend on state or area laws.  Installation of this part in a vehicle for which it is not intended may violate U.S. and Canadian laws and regulations related to motor vehicle emissions.  Check your state and local emissions requirements before purchasing.
