Ever since I saw a Jeep Wrangler with a 4BT swap, I've wanted one.

4bts are found in RARE 80s ford rangers. bred trucks, ups trucks etc. they are seriously a 6bt some one took to a band saw. LOL

The motor was commonly used in bread trucks for years but there pretty scarce around here lately. The 4BT is plenty for my 3/4 ton Dodge pickup......after the reference line is nixxed and some bigger squirters installed :)

We've got a complete 6bt (5.9) at work but its honestly more than a single rear wheel pickup needs for plowing and hauling. We have a few tiny Isuzu 4 bangers that are more than up to the task if I can find a donor trans or t-case to cobble in.

Thats exactly true, right down to the crank and rod positioning. The front cover's and acc are direct swaps.
That 4BT.com or whatever it is has two crosscuts showing the motor's side bye side.
