Lightbulb ranger with 6.0 psd

i was thinking about buying a 6.0L PSD and building up the motor and putting it in a Ranger, i know there would be a lot of fab work but i am capable of doing it. does anyone have any ideas of what parts would be needed to make the truck handle the weight and the power of the motor? i was thinking a 9" rear end with a dana 44 solid axle up front and some frame mods. and did i mention i want to do a custom motor build with triple turbos?

Adam from FCDP has a 6.0 in a ranger, you might wanna talk to him about the suspension work they did.

Sounds like you want it to be 4wd? Are you building it to race or what? I would pick diffrent axles if I were you.

There are 2 rangers with 6.0s in them. Both are 2wd lowered striped down race trucks. Also triple turbos is alittle over kill and pointless.

I would just swap a 4bt cummins in it and call it a day. It will take ALOT more that I think you are thinking to get it to work. The suspenction and drive train alone will be a challenge to support the big heavy motor on a small frame.

Just because you saw triple turbos on a cummins doesnt mean you can make a set for a 6.0 just as easy. Let me tell you when you start adding more turbos to 6.0s it becomes a art. To master that art it take alot of time and most of all alot of money. There is one triple turbo 6.0 in the works, guy by the name of tad, Owns Elite Diesel, and its having problems. I dont think you should try triples.

If you are stuck on putting a 6.0 in there and want serious power just put some 190s and a powermax in there and thats 550hp and it that ranger will be way more than enough for you and its about a billion times easyer.

Dont get me wrong I love the idea of a swap. Just not in a ranger for wheeling. I have a prodject that is kind of on the back burnner because of my procharger truck that is a 67 F-250 4x4 and im putting a 6.0 or 7.3 in. That swap is alot easyer because you can use the frame and all the running gear.

just my thoughts of the matter
