    What trans and tcase to use for 302?

    I have a 2000 Ford Ranger and I'm going to do a 302 conversion. As most of you know, in that year range, not the easiest swap. Anyways, it's 4x4 and I'm looking for a transmission and Tcase that will bolt up to my 302. The 302 came out of a 2001 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. I've decided the...

    98 Ranger - 97 Explorer Swap?

    I have a 98 Ranger that had the 3.0 auto, my project is swapping a 5.0 v8 from the 97 explorer. I know that there is a lot of gray area between 97-98 because of the ECM and wiring. I want to know if anyone knows, is that swap possible? Or should I just find a 98-02 explorer to make my life easier?

    New Rear Leafs...?

    Noticed I have a broken leaf on the drivers side. So I'm going to buy 2 new sets. For both sides. Problem is I've run across needing a leaf spring code, which I do not have. There is no door tag and I have tried calling my local dealership and giving them my VIN, they can't look up any codes...

    Lost Key

    I converted my 1999 Ford ranger 3.0 to a 4.0 ohv out of a 2000 Ford explorer. I lost my keys to the truck, it's at the Ford dealership now so they can make keys. They're trying to tell me a bunch of carp about what keys will work and what won't. Would my original key have worked? Or would I need...

    3.0L to 4.0L

    Long story short I've had my 1999 3.0L 4x4 ranger for almost 3 years now, and I have done 3 motor swaps already. Always swapping another 3.0 into it. For the last time I killed another one. I'm all done with 3.0's. I was going to do a 302 swap, but decided on a more cost efficient 4.0L swap. I...

    Oil Pump/Oil Pressure Gauge

    Alright, so I'm going to try to explain this as simple as possible. I was out wheeling, and towards the end the oil pressure gauge would drop to nothing, and the "check gauge" light would come on. Having experienced ignoring that and seizing a motor before because of a dead oil pump, I quickly...

    Manual Locking Hubs

    I have a 1999 Ranger 4x4. It had the stock automatic locking hubs. Vacuum operated. I have had problems with them. So I bought myself a set of Rugged Ridge manuals. They got good reviews and everything... I can't get them to stay in my truck! I've been through two sets now. At $200 a set I can't...

    New Kid from NH

    I live in Southern NH. I have a 1999 Ford Ranger XLT with a 2000 3.0 Flex Fuel V6. 5" of lift on 32/11.50/15. I'm here to get and give advice. I have done 3 motor swaps in my truck alone, rebuilt the front end, and rebuilt the frame. I also built a 1982 Ford Mustang GT. So if you need anything...

    Arched Springs?

    Hi, new to the forum. Seen it many times. Anyways, I have a 1999 Ranger 4x4 and it's already got 5 inches of lift. I want to lift the rear another 1-2 inches. Not with any more blocks either. I was thinking if I put springs that had more of an arch to them. That would definitely do it. Where...
