I am wanting to make a SHTF vehicle. Something I can run on just about anything oil based. I have a good dependable 5.0 in my 97 Ex. I am wanting to not have to worry about electronic parts and issues. And with the diesel, all you need is compression and fuel and it runs. Any ideas on what diesel to use? If it will be feasible? if it is what tranny? ANything in there I may be over looking?? Can I still run my AWD T.C.? BLAH BLAH BLAH

You can go the 4bt route and depending on area can be halfway cheap to come across but you will need trans and tcase and also d shafts and motor mounts so this is most expensive route the other and which im reaserching now would be buy a 90s blazer 6.5 diesel and put your explorer body on top of the chevy frame probably cheapest route may require more fab work though like firewall message and custome body mounts
