    My 99 F250 Ext Cab Short Bed was pretty small. Until I threw an 8" lift under it with some 37s.

    I love the custom Std Cab Short Beds... those look amazing.

      About a year ago I stumbled across a website where someone stuffed a 6.0 Powerstroke into a Ford Ranger. With enough money anything is possible. But seriously, my ext. cab short bed was pretty small before the lift and tires.

        Tell her size does not matter when fuel is almost free. Being the biggest on the road has its advantages!

          While admittedly the 250 ext cab sb is about the smallest PSD you are going to get it is still almost 19 feet long. Not really that small!! especially if you need to be parking in a lot of parking lots.

            Very true, and some parking lots seem a lot smaller than others. Give me about 2 acres and I can turn this rig around.

              I was thinking Bronco with 7.3 if I had to do conversion.What was the last year they were built?I saw in diesel power they did a 6.oh and 7.3 powerstroke into to two different Broncos,but didn't state a cost.Any Idea of cost?Hopefully cheaper than that ugly little liberty.........thanks guys

                Don't like the Libbys? I think they are nice and i drove one last year...it lacked power big time with the little diesel but with a power tuner it could be improved a bunch.
                No problem parking that little dude either...

                  I can't tell you how much I wish you could get the diesel version of my 1991 Toyota mini-truck in the U.S. There are a lot of them north of the border but importing a whole truck is a bureaucratic nightmare-importing just an engine is expensive because of freight costs, etc... The engines are made by Hino-dirt simple and bulletproof. Maybe once I have a bunch of $$$ saved up from not buying #2 I'll spring for a lightly used diesel 4 banger from the Great White North. It'd make a good little winter vehicle for my fiancee-I'd just have to teach her how to drive stick...

                    I guess the looks of it could be worse,it kinda reminds me of a clown car,shape,disposition etc.I still need fully-automatic system for wifey.thats#1 reason our daily driver is the greasyX.Like I am sure some of you Know we own a Graphics Biz,Quantify that with multi-tasking wifey,and a 2 year old son(terrible twos),and I fear the worst.Not purgeing,switching etc.This is the convience of the V3.We work hard and play harder, just don't want something I can't make automatic system for.There is one down in mass converted for 15K,but not automatic system.This is the one greasecar did for website over 5K install.I just like the ease of the V3,and that little motori 2.8 is way dirtier then my big 7.3or my built 5.9 cummins.The epa statement is scary.Hey jason want to build a Libby one-off kit?,NH is nice in the fall

                        How about a late model turbo-diesel Toyota 4Runner?

                        These guys will build it for ya. Kinda pricey, but thats about the EASIEST way to get whatcha want... Forgive them for their VO system ignorance.

                          I've driven one of the Liberty's and I kind of liked them...actually was fun to drive.

                          Haven't tried the diesel version, but I'm sure they'd be fun as well.

                              My wife has a gasser Liberty. I took it offroading the first day she had it and cracked the windshield. It was a very capable rig, even with the car tires. With some decent rubber on them, they are as good as anything in snow or mud. Surprisingly fun in snow if you like to play in parling lots

                              The 3.7L has plenty of power and it feels like a go-kart. I don't know if its because I'm coming out of a huge F350 CC LB and getting into a 4000lb toy car or the fact that it is actually a very nimble machine. The turning radius on this thing is better than any car I've ever driven and there are no blind spots.

                              If you can get a CRD Liberty to run with a system like the V3... I highly recommend it. The CRD motor had some problems, the dealerships will flash your comp and fix those, and then they are pretty reliable. I was about to buy a CRD but being in NYS I was going to have nothing but problems. Oh well. I'm happy with the 7.3
