I clicked this pic on a safari in SA. I was told it has a 3.0l, 4 cyl. Mazda turbo diesel. Almost all mid sized rigs down there, lots of four doors and diesels
I dont understand why we dont have these in the states.
Mazda B series diesel below.

because they would outsell the full-size trucks probably 3 to 1 and they probably get insanely good gasmilage. maybe we all should get together and chip in $10, buy a sea container and ship one to the states, and holy crap.... a 3.0l 4cyl diesel sounds like a big bore lol.

I saw them all over Haiti, there sweet but have you seen a crash test with one? They break in half at 30mph head on collision

then i'll just have to armor it up w/ some DickHard Fab...
btw, the guy that built my bumper- his name is Dick, so we call it DickHard..
when you're as hard as a dick, rocks aint sh!t... or something like that.
i'd totally rock one tho. 3.0 diesel. awesome...

I'd kill for a Ranger that puffed some good ol' black stuff out the exhaust pipe!

I'd scrap the body and put it in a 1 or 2 gen body!

they don't them here on account of the emisson's of the engine. they don't even make it close to the U.S stricked emisson laws. (im not agreeing its a good reason, im just saying thats the main reason why. id f'in love one of these trucks!) jeep also has several diesels vehicals in europe that cannot be over here, and its also why the diesel liberty when away........sucks don't it

fuel systems would get a chock over here too. when i was in south america with a U.S built wrangler TJ. we had to carry all sorts of additives to put in the fuel we got, and we also had to stock up on the fuel as well. Gas is had to come by there and if you do find it its poor quality. diesels alot easier to come by but even its of poor quality
