    I was curious if any of you guys knew if there was a diesel motor that would go into a 94 4x4 without to many modifications. I realize all the running gear would have to change but Just curious. Gettin time to do something with the old girl.

    No problem, that'd be awesome man. You should go on youtube and search diesel ranger there's some vids on there of american ranger converted to diesel.

    That'd be awesome to throw a diesel motor in there! You got to let us know how it goes and if you go forward with it.

    For sure guys. 4bt cummins motors are super cheap. The exspenive part would be the trans. and rear axel. :yes:

    Why not just use a Ford 9inch? It should be strong enough for you're doing. The only thing is, is finding one that's already narrowed down to width.

    I think I'll be the one on here to say I want a 7.3 turbo powerstroke in my ranger, but then again, pigs can't fly.

    in 98 they used the 2,5 Maxxion turbodiesel (intercooler): THE WORST ENGINE

    in 2002 or so, the 2,8 PowerStroke, much better, but still a ****

    in 2005, the 2,8 PowerStroke electronic, better

    in 2007 the 3.0 PowerStoke. Arround 150HP, much better engine, but **** compared with the 3.0 or 4.0 V6s american engines.

    Trust me guys... nothing to do, stick to your V6s!!!!!!!

    yes, but they are not so economic as you might think. the 2,5 Maxxion was famous cause it was so so so bad (the S10 also uses that engine... exactly the same) they need to be redone only at 120K or so (kilometers... not miles; arround 73.000 miles)
