Diesel Ranger

Anyone see any of these? and if so, what were the specs? like which engine, hp/torque, swapped outta wut, etc. i've seen a couple of vids but either they're the 83 ish rangers or the ones from brazil or w/e with the 3.0L stock, im curious about this for my own possible swap...

No one on this forum has ever seen nor desires to see a Diesel ranger. If we did we would throw rocks at them.

I love the idea of a powerful and efficient diesel engine in a Ranger, 4.0L turbo would rock!

But correct me if I'm wrong, if you ever rolled a diesel it would continue to run until it blew up. I think thats why people who off-roading their diesel's are converting to propane.

That is one sweet as Bronco, one of these days I'd like to own an early 70's Bronco and drop a 5.0L FI motor in it as I don't think I could afford to build a Cummins 4BT, and dam that thing is 700lbs, but 28-30mpg!
