any VW tdi's into rangers?

just a brainstorming session really...but i know you can find varuious size vw tdi's for pretty cheap. ive seen the conversion into samuri' it feasible for a little danger ranger? i have a POS 95, with a nearly dead 2.3 and good enough 5spd that i refuse to put effort into right now..but i may be willing to look into a swap down the line if its reasonable/worthwhile...its just a commuter and house truck deal, but if i were to put the effort into the drivetrain at all i may clean the ****box up a bit, pull the bed and setup a simple aluminum bed for moving the next toy (lookingto get a new rzr 4-the 4 seater setup)....or just use the truck as a little project to screw with
any intput?

On Youtube a user named Davidsfarm has transplanted a VW diesel into one Dodge Caravan, and once it rusted he moved it into a newer Caravan. Might help you with ideas.
