Where did you get that? 4500lbs is a bit much for a ranger. Full size trucks weigh on average 4500-5400lbs depending on if its 2wd or 4wd, 5500lb max for a 4wd extended cab. I checked both ford f150 and dodge 1500, and there is no way the little ranger weighs anything close to a full size truck. It might, but I really doubt it.

I jsut go toff the meter with hauling garbage.. I do it twice a month, and I weigh in at 4400 with me in the vehicle, I weigh a bit short of 200lbs.. so tahts roughly 4200 on an 01' supercab 4x4

Some Updates from Tim
1. Gene has the motor and Tranny removed,a nd will start Chasis work after Christmas
2. The motor has been a challenge thus far. WHY? Well, were doing what apparently not too many have done before. Looking for big, dependable power, out of the 6.0. WHile I cannot divulge everything that is going on thus far, here is a brief desricption. The block started as a 6.0. The Rods are custom Billet from Crower. The heads are being worked over by the same guy that used to build Big Daddy Don Garlitts race motors. The injectors were dropped in a box to Ryan Casserly this morning, THANKS CASS!
We have wheels and tires, Stacks from Grand Rock, a custom Fass system from the folks at DPP. We have nitrous from RC *** ready, we have Gauges, and more from DI Pricol. Were making progress,a nd its gonna pick up steam now. THanks to Everyone that has and are donating. Once its done its going to Andy for paint, and hopefully it will be debuted at TS.

Yesterday: Got the call today that the Pistons and Bearings have been coated and will be shipped out tomorrow. Ya got to love Poly dyn!

O ok ya that probably wont look bad at all. I cant stand the ones that stick out like 2ft over the cab on the diesel trucks.

Nice to see ya over here too Tim. Lovin the idea of the 6.OL in the ranger. This is a great place with great people and a lot of info. I kinda figured you were Dapilot from CompD.

6.0 Diesel swap as been done before and we'll just say it's rather fast.

Quote:
The "Rocket Ranger" achieved an average speed of 215.091 miles-per-hour -- nearly 2 miles-per-hour faster than the previous record of 213.583 miles-per- hour in the "C/Diesel Truck" class. SPAL's record is recognized by the Southern California Timing Association/Bonneville Nationals Inc. (SCTA/BNI).
Quote:
In 2001, SPAL USA approached Ford with the "Rocket Ranger" concept. Ford was eager to offer support by providing a stock Ford Ranger pickup. Currently the "Rocket Ranger" is equipped with a Ford PowerstrokeŽ/International 6.0- litre diesel engine equipped with Hypermax intercooled series turbochargers, injectors and Mach 7 performance module, dual SPAL USA 12" high-performance cooling fans and a ZF 6-speed transmission.

Yeah, I know the rocket ranger has been done, but they were looking to go fast over a looooong distance. I am only looking for 1/4 miles worth. LOL

I havent read much of this thread yet, but I would think it would be easier just to keep it on a superduty frame and modify the frame to fit a ranger body.

I havent thought into it much, but thats just my take.
