many people with rangers have put 4bt in, think a 7.3 or 5.9 would be a little big :D

the old ranger diesels were junk, i dont remember the S10 ever having a diesel option, but the Chev Luv and the Isuzu Pup's had them and they were awesome engines! i just sold mine and it would get 28-32mpg depending on how i drove it.

look for an early to mid 80's isuzu pup with a diesel, they were non-turbo but you could turn the pump up a little on them. best bet is find a 2wd version with the 5spd manual trans, they had a 4x4 but it only came with a 4spd manual behind it

If you can find one the pup or luv's are awsome. I have had 3 of them and they all were great. I had a 1986 4-wheel drive 5spd, turbo diesel. Turned up that thing would smoke like a train.
