I'm pretty sure these were available in Europe and maybe Australia. so its most likely an import with some front end changes. The grill looks like it was changed but I do remember seeing the short door crew cabs in Europe.

I dont think it is a custom build. The wheels definitely are.

Grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s
the teal one looks "off", a little bit. i don't know why but the lines look funny versus the black one. i think someone made the teal one. the back seat looks like the one from my old 01 nissan frontier, too.

Mexico and South America has four door trucks on the same platform as the NA Ranger too.

Probably getting close to import legal by now...

20 years old are legal to import. I tried to buy one last time I was in Guadalajara, but we couldn't come to a deal. (He seemed to think a "gringo" wasn't serious to start with, then wanted too much..

The OP's truck doesn't look right somehow though - wrong headlights for a '94 (those are '98-'00 headlights) and that rear seat doesn't seem right. I'd need a picture of the roof to tell you definitively - the Latin and South America trucks don't have a smooth roofline - they look like the extension was "tacked on". They are built on a SuperCab chassis, so you can check if the wheelbase is 125" (more/less) or not too.

Well that’s interesting and close enough to maybe take a look at. Being that it’s what I do, I’d be able to tell pretty quick if it’s a hack job or factory or whatever. It definitely has the 98-00 headlights and grill though, so something is up.

You can see the line across the roof at back edge of front doors.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
Those rear doors on the green one look to be about 2/3 the size of the rear doors on the white one.
