Icon10 Crazy swap idea!?!

My crazy idea is to put a 5.9 cummins 12 valve in my 94 4x4 ranger reg cab. What things will i have to change and can i keep my 4x4? Also its a 5 speed so i want to keep it that way. What type of trans can i use and what has to be changed?

it's been done b4. expect it to be very expensive. new rear end, new tranny, new front suspension and rear prolly. also you'll need to strengthen your frame. pushing your firewall back. its alot of work.

You really think there is a list of parts you will need to do the job? If it were that easy everyone would do it.

That would be one heck of an undertaking, but if you had the money, the time, and something to drive in the meanwhile, that would be one sick freaking truck!
