It works better though because i can hold it a little longer for the really cold mornings.

Try going there to look for parts. I know they have a replacement turbo for the diesel ranger.

in NJ we cant pump our own gas, well at most stations at least because most of the time they let people who want diesel do it themselves. But at a hess one gas pump guy did not want to give me diesel and i had to insist that it was diesel...

And thanks for that lmc site. ive searched google for parts for it but that site never came up.

ill try and get a video of it after i make a new pipe for it. For the time being im just putting a pipe out in front of the tire with no muffler for now. If it sounds like crap ill put a tractor muffler on it or something like that because there is a video of one online and it sounds pretty nice. Either way it will sound pretty sweet

I'll be the first to say that I am not jealous of the diesel.

I am jealous that you have a 4X4 diesel WITH A MANUAL TRANSFER CASE!

You know how everybody said that hate you? Well, I hate you more then all of those people combined, plus like, infinity.

Would you be interested in a trade for a broken down Ranger, and a Dodge that needs a new rear end, BUT HAS WORKING FOUR WHEEL DRIVE NOW?!?!?!?!

haha no thanks. Id rather be the odd one this time. I love hearing the turbo spoolin up when taking off, filling the driveway with smoke when starting when cold, and the smell and sound. I mean how could you not love a diesel. I think the truck is going to look real nice when i put a little more work into it.

Id really like to have a newer ranger with 4bt in it. But not like that yellow one on youtube. That truck is too "show" for me. But i am defiantly not mechanically inclined enough to do anything like that.
