Diesel Ranger

I know they made diesel ranger/still make them in other countries but has anyone even installed a Cummins, or a CAT 4cyl in a ranger before?

Just courious. I thought it would be cool someday to have a ranger to take to diesel shows and blow the doors off some cummins fans.

I havn't seen any ranger diesel swaps......but I have seen a TJ and a YJ with a 4cyl cummins turbo in it. The YJ gets about 22mpg in the city.

I know I have seen pics of a 1991-1994 Explorer that had a I4 Cummins swapped in.

The I4 Cummins is standard equipment in Ford Super Duties in some other markets (South America, probably others).

heh thought so, my mb is currently being driven by my son so i'm not on those 2 sites a lot anymore..

i have a ranger now so i'm here

kinda miss the old 617 diesel powerplant though. they were a great design. i imagine hooking one of those up into a ranger body would be awesome.
