I have an '80 4x4 with a (recently) shot engine. I am a.) looking for a replacement (in new england) and b.) interested what years are compatible with mine. What about Pups? I'd love to put in a 2.3. Would that necessitate a tranny swap?

I think the tranny wouldn't matter but you might as well put the 5 speed inz

Any 4cyl Isuzu engine will bolt to your trans.
To swap a 2.3 you'll probably have to mod the firewall a bit to clear the distributor, you need to use a 4x4 oil pan to clear the front differential & you may need a bigger radiator. Also the LUV fan shroud won't fit a 2.3.

Try bbcode. Nobody's going to let you use html on their forum.
