My 2000 Turbo Diesel from Brazil

Hello RF! I've been reading this forum unregistered for a while, and i already participate to the --- forum. Now i decided to join here too.

I have a 2000 Ford Ranger Supercab with a 2.5 Turbo Diesel engine.
And i have her for about a year... Made a few mod's and have much more things that i want to do.

Enough talking, lets present the truck.

Here it is the day i bought it:




The first mods are:

Side exhaust



Turbo Gauge



Blacked Wheels




Tinted windows



My mascot (Gift from my girlfriend) It's called Rusty



Explorer Overhead Console




Interior removed



Cleaned



Sealed with acoustic blanket (Floor, roof, all 4 doors, firewall, back panel)



Exterior door panels



Interior door panels




3" PA Body Lift

Shifter extension




Bed removed




Fuel hose extensions



Rear bumper brakets



Back in place





Crown Victoria Police Style



A very rusty cab bolt



Lifting






Block in place



Leaning (thats the scariest part when you do a BL by yourself)



Back to normal position (finally)



Almost finished



BL Finished (i need to take better pictures now)




After the BL i did this:
3rd Taillight Blinker



And then washed her and put her posing for pictures!
My father's montero is tiny next to the Ranger! HAHAHA :p





My to do list is:
-Radio bezel, OHC, Diff cover painted white
-33" Mud Tires
-Crank the t-bars a bit just to level it
-Aux lights
-Custom box under the rear seats to place tools and stuff
-A decent stereo

There's more minor stuff to do, but basically is it.

Hope you all liked it :D
Feel free to comment and suggest things

Thanks and sorry about the bad english (i'm brazilian).

Thanks guys!

My truck does on traffic about 23 mpg, and on the road about 30 mpg.
It has 115hp stock. Mine has a bit more, i gave a twist on the fuel pump, must be with 130hp now.

I would like a V6 around here
But with the gas price on brazil it's totally impractical.

Nice truck! I got all excited when I saw 2000 turbo diesel, thinking someone did a swap so I had to check it out. What does this have, far as an engine? I mean obviously it's a 2.5 TD but who makes it?

Thank you! The engine is made by MWM International.
It's the same engine that equips the Land Rover Defender.
It's called Maxion 2.5 HSD on the ranger and 300TDI on the defender.
But it's exactly the same engine.

It's known for being very reliable (defenders have to work in the african deserts, so....) and cheap to repair. Almost no electronics on it. Just pure mechanical

Reliable, cheaper to repair when something does go wrong, and easy to work on because of being mechanical. Aren't those the best?

Yes they are

Sometimes i miss the response and the disposal of the petrol engines, but that beautiful sound of the diesel and the turbo makes all be better.

I'd give up gas in a heartbeat if I could get a diesel vehicle.
