Tadpole - each to their own, I am more than happy with a 1.5ton payload and train weight of 3.5ton, cruise on French autoroutes to go skiing at 85mph and get 22mpg - suites me, that is why I have 2 of them

I may have found the parts I need . As of this morning I now own two 1985 diesel rangers . Parts are very hard to find . It is a 2.3 turbo mitsubishi engine . unfortunatly I had to buy a whole truck and pillage the parts . Now I am hoping to get the other parts to have two complete engines. Any European trucks run this engine?

The International Ranger, with the diesel is not a compact truck as it is in the states. It is more the size of a Dakota. Also the streets are much narrower in most of the parts of Europe then here in the US. So an F250 or a Chev 2500 won't fit in some places. Also, less people in Europe can afford to drive, they really don't need the giant ass do it all diesel like we have here. As for half tons getting diesels, all of the big three have plans, at the moment in limbo, thank you farked up economy, for a half ton diesel power plant. I honestly don't need a full size truck, but something like the International Ranger, that is bigger then my Ranger, but not a full size, that gets better mileage, and can tow about anything I'll ever probably need to hook to a truck, that would be a perfect set up for me. Plus they have a crew cab and you can still get a manual transmission, perfect truck for me.

Richard youīre right in everything you said about diesel rangers.
In europe we canīt afford to have big gas engines like you there.
Richard do you already saw the pics of my engine?

FIRST OFF BUDDY YOU WON"T GET pass customs - you just cant drop a diesel engine in a gas truck without all the other parts you would need to make it run!,like stronger tranny
driveshaft
harness
fuel tank
motor mounts
and about 12k or so.

It is possible to bring a truck up to the states and convert it. You will pay out the ass in tax, and you have to convert it over to meet it's model year safety and emissions standards in the US. This is the damn near impossible part, but you could bring one As well as you will need all the drivetrain parts that they have for the diesel, as they are probably different then the set up in our trucks. You can get a 4bt 3.9l 4 cylinder Cummins and swap it in, this has been done several times, as well as a guy here on the forum has a 6.0 Powerstroke in his newer model Ranger, but it is highly modified and stupid amounts of money have gone into it. Just saying.
