I just bought one, it's dark so I'm halfway afraid of what I bought.

May be like bringing home a hotty from the bar. :lol:


You mean the NPR diesels, Andy? I'm not too up to date on that stuff, I was wanting to go with my other choices since they had rotary pumps.

Yeah the 4BD1T or 4BD2T is a popular swap.

I dunno, the only thing more rare around here than the mercs are those Isuzus...


I may just try to track down a 4x4 2.3 transmission and throw one of the many turbo 2.3s I've got laying around in it. I've always wanted to get one of the M90 Eatons and put it on a turbo 2.3.

I hate to go gasser, but these things seem to be about as short as a jeep. Not much room for crazy trans/transfer combos back there...

How can you even compare the 2? On the left is a classic American monster and on the right..........well, I think the Dodge shat there. :roll:

I'm a Ranger man from way back, I'll only own Cummins Dodges and ranger-sized Fords.

If I didn't get into 1stgens I'd be heavy into turbo 2.3 Fords at this point.

You guys are right, maybe I should have gotten a Dodge Raider instead. :lol:

Now your talking, but, might I suggest the raiders brother, the Ram 50, or Mighty Max in Mitsu badging.

Shut up Andy! :evil:




:lol: :lol:
I don't really have anything against it, and doing a diesel swap into just about anything is cool. I just don't think you can call the bronco a mini me to the RC. Maybe after the swap..........

I almost bought one last year. They have as much room in the front as my car does which is surprising.

Plenty of room for me. :)

If it's anything like the RC I'll pull the back seat so I can haul more work crap. :lol:
