    I've been thinking... I need more torque in my ranger so I was thinking about buying this as a donor vehicle for an engine and trans swap..

    What do you guys think? Will this Cummins NHC 250 855 c.i. motor and 5 speed auto allison trans with two speed transfer case fit onto the ranger frame and the body fit around it?

    And yea, I know what you all are going to say... it only pushes out 250 hp, but 685 ft lbs of torque @ 1500 rpm.. Or should I find the newer models with the Cummins 6CTA8.3 504 c.i. with 240 hp but 745 ft lbs of torque @ 1500 revs. As you all know, I was looking to sell my ranger to get better MPG's, but this may be my answer... At least then I would have a legit reason to have stacks...:thumbup:

    I guess people didn't find that as funny as I did... My boss sent it to me as a joke saying "Well I knew you were in the market for something with better gas mileage... This has your name written on it"

    I think you should take the body off and put the Ranger body on that frame.
    It would save a lot of fab work… lol !

    What is that a 5 or 10 ton ?

    I think the paint scheme would work on a Ranger too !

    Yea I thought about that, but I really want to try and make it work on the ranger frame, just gotta reinforce the crap outa it.

    It's a 5-ton. At work we handle marketing for NAPA and came across this dealership that was enrolled in one of our programs. Found they have interesting inventory lol. Yea this paint scheme would be awesome.
