swapping 5cyl motor into truck

hi everyone i wasnt sure wether to put this into of topic or here, but figured here since its about my 5 cyl diesel motor, im trying to figure out what truck body would be the best to handle this heavy motor and tranny. basically im wanting to get ideas of which ones would be able to handle this heavy motor, but since i have a non/ turbo also 1 thats light enough that the motor will still be able to get it moving at least decently. and also have enough engine bay room.
right now the choices im thinking of are an chevy s-10 and a ford ranger, and possibily if i can even find 1 cheaper a jeep pickup, any ideas from the others here which 1 would handle the engine and tranny best?? or any other ideas on possible trucks to swap it into??thanks in advance
