    Hey guys, new here and recently picked up a 1996 XLT 4.0 that I finally have the time and energy to start playing with.

  7. 3.0 miss while shifting

    I've got a 93 ranger 5 speed 4x4. Last fall, I cracked the block on the old engine so I replaced it with a 2001 3.0 from a wrecked truck with 60,000 miles.
