    Crew Cab, Diesel, and small enough for the trails with a mild lift :wackit:

    Too bad Ford doesn't have badass cars like this in the US. With gas prices the way it is right now, this would be a great truck.

    I know I'd be down for a Diesel Compact pickup. We don't get any here in the States unfortunately.

    There was a rumor that FoMoCo would be releasing a diesel powered F-150 near the mid-end of this decade. Not sure if development has continued or not.

    I think GM could do one rather easily. Isuzu has plenty of suitable motors that go into trucks around the world. EASY to stick one of those into a Silverado. Duramax ltd. is still a developmental powerhouse.

    Dodge could do it as well. M-B has a ton of diesels that would do great in a smaller Ram or even a Dakota. IIRC DCX still holds a sizeable piece of Detroit Diesel and could whip out a small one without too much trouble. The DELTA diesel project showed much promise, but never really went anywhere. Chrysler Corp. was in the process of being purchased by Daimler at the time though.

    You might have better luck just importing the motor.
    The trucks shouldn't be THAT different.

    Then, just order smaller, hard parts from Europe (get a dealer who will ship intl. or a friend)
    Things like motor mounts, tranny mounts, various fittings, etc.
    Don't forget that you may need to do some re-gearing in the rear end. Diesels like to spin slow.
