    I just looked up the specs for that engine (they can be found here: http://www.cumminsdieselspecs.com/4bt.html).

    That sounds like an absolutely perfect size for the Grand Cherokee, 1/2 ton and Dakota size vehicles. With 265 ft pounds of torque it would still be a very capable towing vehicle for the average person. My jeep runs at about 230-235 ft pounds and does a dandy job for anything that I am doing.

    I WANT ONE.

    I'd be all over a crew cab Ranger with a diesel. We'll never see that here though...

    Turns out I am a member of 4btswaps.com already. I must have thought it was a good idea some time ago. Lots of knowledge on that site.

    Ford was offering turbo-diesel Rangers here in the USA in 1986 and Jeep was offering the Perkins diesel in 1968. Neither sold very well.
