She runs and drives, though we have to rearrange the fuel injector wiring. Transmission won't shift out of first.

I can now drive my 302 swapped ranger. She runs and drives beautifully. With the gearing and all it's definitely a 55 mph truck on the highway, but I can take it higher if I need to. It accelerates ridiculously fast and is a head turner. I've taken this ranger up to 30 miles away.

Still just need to do the transfer case shifter, and the oil relocating kit leaks a little bit at the filter, and the C4 leaks a tiny bit. At this point in the refinement phase. Definitely worth doing!!!

Late to the party but great job and real nice details on the build. some 33s on there should lower the rpms for highway. Enjoy the fruits of the swap
