I was overseas years ago in Africa and saw simple diesel quad cab trucks everywhere including the "new to the US" Ranger. Fact is if you want it all , whatever your "all" is, you will for the most part have to build it yourself.
Agreed. only thing close is the colorado Diesel but they are not cheap. Hense why I built my own.
Here is one from right after I put a bigger cooler on it.

Thats awesome. Funny I put a 1.9 Tdi ALH in my 2001 us spec Dodge Dakota. I get 28.5 us MPG all day unloaded. I think it would sell great here in the US. My hack job swap is now where near those payload specs though it handles 2k lbs in the bed regularly.
Can you tell me what the engine...
Im gonna jump in here with a question on these 37"+ tires. Yall mention balancing and I was wondering if any of you use balance beads /airsoft shot? I was curious if you have tried the bead method and your thoughts?
We looked at the colorado diesel also but like its been said you caint get that driveline in a stripped down truck. But I know for a fact that a Tdi swap in an old dakota cost no more than $5100. ;) Diesel in a midsize truck is great. I dont see us driving a gas powered truck ever again.
